Honeywell’s latest addition to the equIP® Series of IP-based products, the HCD1FX
is a high definition, True Day/Night network camera that offers the latest in digital
video surveillance. The HCD1FX provides 720p resolution at full frame rate. The
1/4" CMOS network camera combines world-class imaging and camera
technology with our equIP® Series IP networking technology, to provide streaming
H.264 and MJPEG images at up to 25 frames per second (30 fps for NTSC
systems). The HCD1FX supports the PSIA specification for interoperability between
network video products.
The HCD1FX day/night camera adapts to varying lighting conditions to ensure the
highest picture quality even in extreme low light conditions. When the light level
drops too low for accurate video identification in colour, the camera moves the IR
cut filter out of the optical path and then switches to black and white video to
capture more detail using the increased sensitivity of the CMOS sensor to IR light.
The powerful and intuitive web client allows fine tuning of the camera and the auto
iris levels. This can also be performed from most DVR/NVR setup utilities.
The HCD1FX supports dual video streams and multiple compression formats. The
digital compression parameters for the two video streams are independently
configurable. The primary stream is dedicated to H.264. The secondary stream can
be configured for H.264 or MJPEG. The HCD1FX features analogue video out for
aiming and focusing during setup.
The HCD1FX has built-in Power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af), which allows power
to be supplied to the camera using standard network cabling, eliminating the need
for a separate power supply and associated wiring. In retrofit situations where PoE
support does not exist, the unit can also be powered directly from 24V AC.
The HCD1FX is a network surveillance solution designed for object recognition in
locations where variable and low light conditions exist. Setup is quick and easy and
can be customised through a web client or from an NVR. This provides optimum
performance for indoor applications, as well as outdoor applications when using an
