The VBC-265 Day/Night Camera is a professional surveillance day/night camera that incorporates 10-bit digital signal processing.The camera parameters can be set individually and a Lens Wizard ensures accurate back focusing at all times. The camera has enhanced night viewing compared to normal color cameras. The IR filter switches to monochrome automatically. A throughthe-lens IR detector enhances the monochrome mode stability. The automatic black level enhances contrast by compensating for reduced contrast (glare, fog, mist, etc.).
