Cisco Video Surveillance 2800 Series Standard
Definition PTZ IP Camera
Video Surveillance 2800 Series Standard Definition PTZ IP Cameras are feature-rich cameras designed for
superior performance, image quality, and ease of deployment. These cameras use a 1/4" SONY EX12E EXmor
CCD Sensor that allows up to a 12x optical zoom while viewing and recording at D1 resolutions.
The cameras are equipped with an integrated camera optics assembly which offers 360° continuous pan ro tation,
a 220° tilt range, and 16 PTZ presets. In addition, the cameras support an SD/SDHC slot for local storage that can
be used to store video if network connectivity is lost.
Cisco Video Surveillance 2800 Series IP Cameras support two simultaneous video streams. The streams can be
compressed in MJPEG and H.264 formats across several resolution configurations, and can be configured in a
variety of frame rates and bit rates for additional bandwidth administration. The cameras feature a ¼ inch SONY
EXmor CCD Sensor for increased sensitivity and low light capability that allow the cameras to compensate in
scenes where minimal light is present. In addition, the cameras feature built-in motion detection and wide dynamic
range (WDR) that enables the system to compensate in scenes where dramatic contrasts in lighting are present.
For unparalleled simplicity of setup and monitoring, the cameras support the Cisco Medianet interface. When
connected to a Cisco switch that also supports Medianet, the switch recognizes the camera as a video endpoint
and then uses SmartPort macros to set the right network parameters for the video stream on the network. In
addition, the camera can be automatically discovered and configured when connected to Cisco Video Surveillance
Manager 7.0, thereby minimizing installation time and cost.
Cisco Video Surveillance 2800 Series Standard Definition PTZ IP Cameras offer a variety of benefits, including:
Full Range of Motion: The camera supports a continuous 360° pan rotation , 220° tilt angle range, and 12x optical
zoom. The camera operator can remotely control the camera to track subjects or reposition the camera's field
Camera Presets: Operators can program up to 16 preset locations that the camera can automatically cycle
through while recording.
Wide Dynamic Range: The camera employs powerful digital imaging technology, allowing it to capture high-
quality images in a wide variety of lighting conditions. It uses a progressive scan image sensor with global
electronic shuttering to ensure natural color rendition, zero blooming and smear and minimal motion blurring.
Outdoor Ready: The housing for the camera is IP66 rated, allowing for outdoor mounting without an
Day/night operation: The camera provides true day/night functionality and includes an IR filter that automatically
switches to night mode in low-light scenes. This function can be set to manual, automatic, or scheduled control.
Open API: Support for ONVIF 2.0 allows for standards based interoperability and communications with other
