Built on the field tested platform of our successful SWZ standard definition camera, the SWZ HD melds this ground breaking design with the latest developments in high definition IP camera technology.

The basis of the SWZ PTZ camera is to use multiple lenses and sensors to provide a stepped zoom effect, minimising the size requirement and maximising low light sensitivity.

The SWZ HD utilises three 1080p imaging sensors, each with a resolution of two megapixels, these are switched into the on-board H.264 encoder. Each sensor is paired with a lens of differing focal length, providing a high definition 10x optical zoom PTZ from a tiny 50mm diameter package.

As standard the SWZ HD is shipped with 8, 16 & 35mm lenses, providing fields of view from 40° down to 8°. The simple construction of these prime lenses increases the effective aperture, allowing far more light to hit the sensor than would be possible with a conventional optical zoom or varifocal lens.

The high definition H.264 encoded video is based on the same technology found in our HD IP range of fixed cameras, as such a PoE variant of this camera is also available. Edge recording is supported by an internal 32GB SD card, recorded files are retrieved via FTP transfer or through the use of our PC or Android applications. Camera configuration is supported via a web page interface.

PTZ control is integrated into the ethernet connection, no additional comms channels are required. PTZ functionality can be accessed via our PC or Android applications, or via the device’s web page.

With its internal slip ring the SWZ HD offers continuous pan and 250° of tilt. The unit is mounted in an environmentally sealed, CNC machined housing.

For customers that already have a SWZ SD camera and wish to upgrade it to HD there is an upgrade path to support this. On the return of a fully functioning SWZ SD camera we will upgrade the unit to HD capability at a reduced price to that of a complete new SWZ HD camera.
