Megapixel IP Camera Reveals True Colors in Ultra Low-Light Conditions


Fremont, California (EastBayDaily) — NEXCOM is pleased to announce the release of its latest 2 megapixel IP camera Ncb-221. Designed with various lighting conditions in mind, the Ncb-221 can capture high quality images caught in ultra low-light, as well as adapt to different brightness levels. What separates the Ncb-221 from other IP cameras is the high sensitivity of the lens, which delivers excellent image quality with real colors and reduced noise.

To ensure image quality in various lighting conditions, NCb-221 features Sony 1/2” Exmore image sensor and TI 3D DNR (digital noise reduction) technology. This megapixel IP camera is so sensitive to light that it can enhance image colors yet suppress noise and motion blurs resulting from imaging enhancement. As a result, NCb-221 can capture images in, for instance, dimly lit museums or restaurants with ambient lighting.

As to high contrast in brightness, NCb-221 provides digital wide dynamic range (DWDR) function to make subjects located in both dimly lit and bright areas clearly visible. By applying different exposure methods to differently lit areas, NCb-221 is more capable than general cameras which usually fall short on capturing the subject in a relatively dark area.

NCb-221 offers smooth video playback up to 30fps in 1080p resolution. It can compress videos in H.264 and MJPEG formats and further reduce video sizes with region of interest (ROI) function. The ROI helps NCb-221 distinguish changes in a monitored area. By saving and streaming only changes in a video sequence, NCb-221 has lower hardware requirements in terms of storage capacity and network bandwidth.

For ease of use, NCb-221 is equipped with rich interfaces to work in conjunction with a multitude of commercial off-the shelf (COTS) peripherals. For example, NCb-221 has audio jack, micro SD card slot, 12V DC, and 24V AC. This megapixel IP camera also incorporates digital input and digital output to connect alarm systems.
