There is no all-purpose CCTV camera. The comparison below allows to choose an optimum camera for a specific application, from the wide range manufactured by ACTi. The cameras have been grouped according to resolution - megapixel, D1, VGA.
Megapixel cameras
Megapixel cameras are quickly gaining popularity. They set new quality standards in video monitoring, not achievable in previous systems based on analog cameras and typical DVRs. Let's compare a standard D1 camera (720 x 576 = 0.4 Mpix) and "typical megapixel" ACTi camera (1280 x 1024 = 1.3 Mpix) - the latter provides 3 times as much information.
The family of megapixel cameras from ACTi
  • Box - versatile cameras for many purposes. Due to changeable lens the installer can adjust the viewing angle. The shape of such a camera is suitable for indoor applications, or - after using an outdoor housing equipped with heater, thermostat and fan - also for outdoor operation. Available models: K1512 (day/night), K1513.
  • Bullet - a very popular model due to outdoor housing (IP66) and built-in IR illuminator. A perfect camera for use in systems requiring compact and durable outdoor devices. Available model: K1511.
  • Dome - outdoor cameras designed for mounting on ceilings. Vandal-proof construction allows applications in harsh environments. Available model: K1313. For less demanding applications - K1314 (indoor dome, not rugged)
  • PTZ - an interesting solution combining features of megapixel and PTZ cameras. It can provide very detailed, high resolution images as well as a wider panorama of the monitored area. Very useful in large rooms, halls etc, e.g. in storehouses.
  • Cube - the simplest model of megapixel camera, a very compact one. An ideal device for monitoring of offices, shops etc. Available model: K1510.
D1 cameras
Standard-resolution cameras are very popular solution for systems that need high quality images at 25/30 frames per second. Equipped with modern CCD sensors, they allow observation even in very low light.
The undoubted advantage of these cameras is compatibility with analog systems. The streams of IP cameras can be decoded/transcoded to analog video signals and recorded on typical DVRs. The transcoder compatible with all ACTi devices of standard resolution is K2413.
The family of D1 ACTi cameras
  • Box - versatile cameras for many purposes. Due to changeable lens the installer can adjust the viewing angle. The shape of such a camera is suitable for indoor applications, or - after using an outdoor housing equipped with heater, thermostat and fan - also for outdoor operation. Available models: K1115, K1502.
  • Bullet - a very popular model due to outdoor housing (IP66) and built-in IR illuminator. A perfect camera for use in systems requiring compact and durable outdoor devices, with standard resolution. For such applications, it will do the K1118 model, instead of the megapixel K1511.
  • Dome - outdoor cameras designed for mounting on ceilings. Vandal-proof construction allows applications in harsh environments. Available model: K1311. For less demanding applications - K1312 (indoor dome with IR illuminator)
  • PTZ - the cameras can provide very detailed close-ups and can operate in many directions. They are used in large rooms, halls etc, e.g. in storehouses, stores.
  • Speed Dome - the most sophisticated solution, combining advanced optical solutions (zoom up to 35x), precision mechanics , and modern image sensors. Very popular in city surveillance, due to possibility of covering large area and zooming the interesting events and details. Available models: K1214, K1215, K1216.
VGA cameras
These simple ACTi devices, used in less demanding applications, are only peripheral to the mainstream mentioned above. Currently we sell only one model (K1501).
The family of VGA ACTi cameras
  • Box - simple, versatile cameras for many purposes. Due to changeable lens the installer can adjust the viewing angle. The shape of such a camera is suitable for indoor applications, or - after using an outdoor housing equipped with heater, thermostat and fan - also for outdoor operation.
  • Bullet - a compact indoor camera with built-in IR illuminator.
  • Dome - indoor camera designed for mounting on ceilings. Used in shops, offices, hotels.
  • PT - an interesting solution combining simple camera and pan-tilt mechanism that provides wide range of observation. Used e.g. in storehouses.
  • Cube - the simplest VGA model, a very compact one. Suitable for monitoring of offices, shops etc. Available model: K1501.
Conclusion
The offer allows to find the best camera for virtually any installation. If we add the variety of video servers fully compatible with the presented cameras, we supply a complete range of equipment for IP monitoring.
