EC-580: Vandal Resistant CCTV Bullet with OSD Menu
When you can pair good performance with good price, then
customers take notice. In the highly competitive field of
security camera installation that means a lot, and the ECL-580
advanced video processing, is just the camera you need to pack
Effio™ Video Processing Technology
The Effio video processor sits at the analog front end (AFE) of
the video image capture process (see simplified diagram at
left). Here it intercepts signals prior to digital signal
processing. This provides the DSP circuitry with clean and
efficient signals that make its job easier, freeing up space for
further enhancements to be added to the available real estate on
the chipset at micro-component level. These enhancements create
higher resolution and provide more options in the OSD.
Effio video processing depends on a chain of support circuitry.
If the support circuitry is mismatched it injects noise. Noise
un-does the primary purpose of Effio by destroying image quality
at the front end. Some CCTV camera manufacturers find it
profitable to substitute low cost generic components. This saves
manufacturers big bucks over large production runs. But
engineers know generic parts make mismatched support circuits,
and that means noise in the signal. Our engineers specify
matched components throughout the entire design, insuring clean
signals and giving this Eclipse camera full Effio quality.
Loaded with Features, Including PrePro
The multilingual OSD menu in this camera provides the user with
a window into a wealth of options. There are so many features
and options it's easy to get confused. In fact some OSD menu
cameras force you, as the installer, to spend a lot of time
going through each setting until you find the right combination
for optimal performance. We know time is money, so we created
the PrePro option.
PrePro stands for Pre-Programmed. Our engineers have already
programmed default settings in the chipset for optimal
performance. That's a lot of words to say "when you reset the
camera to factory default, it's good-to-go 99% of the time."
Of course PrePro doesn't handle every situation. But it will
satisfy a wide variety of users in most common settings, and the
time/cost savings alone make this camera incredibly attractive
for large scale installations.
