The Cisco ® Video Surveillance 2421 Standard-Definition IP Dome is a feature-rich digital IP camera designed for superior performance in a wide variety of video surveillance applications. The camera employs MPEG-4 and MJPEG compression of up to 30 frames per second (fps) at D1 NTSC resolution (720 x 480) or 25 fps at D1 PAL resolution (720 x 576), offering efficient network utilization while providing high-quality video. With its open, standards-based design, the camera provides an ideal platform for integration and operation as an independent device or as part of a Cisco Video Surveillance network.

The Cisco Video Surveillance 2421 IP Dome offers a variety of benefits, including:

Wide dynamic range. The camera employs powerful digital imaging technology, allowing it to capture high-quality images in a wide variety of lighting conditions. It uses a progressive scan image sensor with global electronic shuttering to ensure natural color rendition, zero blooming and smear, and minimal motion blurring.

Dual streaming. The camera can stream MPEG-4 and MJPEG video simultaneously. Each video stream can be configured with individual resolution, quality, and frame rate settings.

Flexible power options. The camera supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) 802.3af, and 12 VDC or 24 VAC power through an optional external power supply.

Mounting options. The camera was designed specifically for internal ceiling tile mount deployments. There is an optional shroud for surface mount installations. The camera is equipped with a varifocal lens mounted to a manual pan and tilt mechanism that allows the camera to be rotated and placed at the proper angle.

Day/night operation. The camera provides true day/night operation and includes an IR filter that automatically switches to night mode in low-light scenes. This function can be set to manual or automatic control.

Cisco Media Application Programming Interface. The camera supports the Cisco Media API, which is an open, standards-based interface that allows integration with compatible video surveillance management systems.

Embedded security and networking.* The camera provides 802.1X authentication and hardware-based Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). For enhanced bandwidth management, the camera supports IP Multicast.

Event notification.* The camera can examine designated areas in the video for motion activity and then notify users or other applications when it detects activity that exceeds a predefined threshold.

Note: Features with an asterisk are not available when the camera is used with Cisco Video Surveillance Manager.
