New Smartec b/w camera for cost -efficient CCTV systems

Smartec introduced new monochrome CCTV camera of STC-1000 series, which generates high quality images in low light conditions.

Due to 1/3" SONY SuperHAD CCD with 752x582 (pix.) resolution and interlaced scan, STC -1000 generates high quality b/w image with 570 TVL resolution at up to 0.08 lux of minimum illumination. New b/w camera allows installer to use lenses of all types: manual or auto iris, fixed focal length, varifocal lenses or zoom lens.


Backlight compensation function allows camera to generate clear b/w video, even if the monitoring object is located on the bright light. Unlike many analogues STC -1000 b/w camera "is not afraid" both bright light and dimmed headlight.

If CCTV system consists of multiple cameras with video information displayed on one monitor, it is recommended to synchronize all the cameras on a single core camera to prevent image scrolling when switching channels. Both STC -1000/0 and STC -1000/2 use method of synchronization based on power supply frequency (Line Lock) that allows installer to carry out automatic synchronization of b/w cameras connected to one phase. If they are connected to different power sources, phase configuring can be accomplished through the screw adjustment on the rear panel of STC -1000.

Unlike many analogues STC -1000 is equipped with electronic iris, allowing installer to use inexpensive lens with manual iris rather than auto iris. Lenses with manual iris can be mounted on b/w cameras, operating outdoors where the dynamic range of the electronic shutter is enough to register changes in street lighting and there is no need to control b/w images depth of field.

New Smartec STС -1000 b/w cameras are offered from stock by Smartec dealers. For more information about STС -1000 and other Smartec equipment, please, send your request to info@smartec -security.eu or contact your Smartec dealers directly.

The product line includes standard analog cameras (B/W, color and "day -night"), IP -cameras, varifocal lenses, speed dome cameras, 15" -32" LCD -monitors, 4 -32 -ch DVRs, IP -video servers, camera housings, brackets and other video surveillance devices.
