Honeywell’s latest addition to the equIP® Series of IP-based products, the HCW1FX is a high definition
Wide Dynamic, True Day/Night network camera that offers the latest in digital video surveillance. The
HCW1FX provides 720p resolution at full frame rate. Progressive scan technology and 2D edge
enhancement provide outstanding clarity and definition. Digital Noise Reduction results in significant
storage savings without sacrificing image quality in low light. The 1/3 progressive scan CMOS sensor
offers the latest in digital video surveillance technology with accurate colour rendition through a wide
variety of lighting conditions. The HCW1FX supports the ONVIF specification for interoperability
between network video products.
The HCW1FX true 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. In high contrast lighting conditions, the HCW1FX delivers higher quality images and significantly
better dynamic range (>100 dB) than conventional IP cameras. Designed for environments with difficult
lighting, the HCW1FX camera offers a unique solution to capture the whole picture regardless of
lighting condition or application.
A powerful and intuitive web client allows fine tuning of the camera. This can also be performed from
most NVR setup utilities.
The HCW1FX supports dual video streams and multiple compression formats with rates up to 25 frames
per second (30 fps for NTSC systems). The 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 HCW1FX features analogue video out for aiming and focusing
The HCW1FX 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 situations where PoE is not available, the unit can also be powered directly from
24 V AC.
The HCW1FX is a network surveillance solution designed for object recognition that is required 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 both indoor and outdoor
applications when using an environmental housing.
