Better Pictures When There Is Motion
Most traditional CCTV and IP cameras use interlaced CCD imagers. Interlaced cameras take two low-resolution pictures then stitch them together to create a higher resolution image. For still pictures this works well but when there is motion, the two pictures don’t always line up which leads to a jagged, blurry “tearing” effect. CPS Video systems use progressive scan CMOS imagers that take multiple individual high-resolution images. Since there is no “stitching” the images captured are much clearer, even when there is motion.
Lower Power Consumption
Progressive Scan CMOS imagers use less power than traditional CCD imagers, this enables you to power Video systems at up to 328’ (100M) over the Ethernet. It also makes for an ideal solution where power consumption is critical, including battery, solar and wind powered applications.
Better Lens Selection
Progressive Scan CMOS Multi-Megapixel "HD Quality" imagers utilize the latest in Infra-Red (IR) mirroring technology. Most traditional CCTV and IP cameras use IR filters that get hot in bright scenes and can burn the camera’s imager which destroys the camera. Until now the solution was to use mechanical auto-iris (dc-iris) lenses that have moving parts. Multi-Megapixel "HD Quality" IP video systems use a dichroic mirror that reflects IR energy. It doesn’t get hot so you can use reliable, fixed-iris megapixel lenses.
