Linear Announces New Line of Analog CCTV Cameras

Day or night, rain or shine, Linear's analog camera collection offers a complete range of solutions to meet virtually all video surveillance needs.

Carlsbad, CA - June 11, 2013 - Linear LLC, a leader in residential and commercial access control, security, and health and wellness solutions, announces new high-resolution analog surveillance cameras with a variety of video enhancement and design features to compensate for lighting, vandalism, and weather. Versatile dome, bullet and box enclosures give dealers a range of form factor options to accommodate different installation needs.

Indoor Dome Cameras

The LV-D4HRW-212 (low-light) and LV-D4HRDIW-212 (day/night) dome cameras are designed for indoor use and offer up to 700 TV lines of resolution as well as an Effio-E enhanced chipset for superior color performance. Digital Wide-Dynamic Range (WDR) imaging on both models allow them to capture highlight and shadow detail - including backlit images - in the same scene. Additional features include noise reduction, a variable focus 2.8-12 mm lens, and three-axis adjustment to simplify installation. The LV-D4HRDIW-212 also comes equipped with smart IR illumination to handle bright and dark video surveillance requirements.

Outdoor Vandal Dome Cameras

Loss prevention professionals can rest easy with Linear aluminum alloy vandal dome cameras keeping watch on exterior doors and perimeters. Resistant against inclement weather and direct impacts, the analog cameras operate in temperatures ranging from -10ºC to +50 ºC and have a robust IP66 rating. Model LV-D4HNWV-212 features Pixim® Nightwolf®, a chipset that eliminates hot spots common to IR cameras with near-field reflective objects in the scene and correctly exposes highlights as well as darker background details simultaneously.

Outdoor Bullet and Box Cameras

Rounding out the new line are the LV-BHRDI-212 outdoor bullet camera and the LV-CAMHRDW fixed box camera. Both feature the Enhanced Effio-E imager chip set, 700TVL and day/night functionality. The Bullet camera also includes zoom/focus, a three-axis bracket, IR lighting capabilities and a sunshield to provide ease of placement and precision surveillance from a discreet but rugged form factor.

Key features available on all models include OSD joystick control options and a video test loop out. All Linear cameras are designed as 'fit-and-forget' video surveillance solutions with reliability ensured through a three year, three month warranty.
