The Cisco® Video Surveillance 2500 Series IP Camera is a high-resolution, feature-rich digital camera designed for superior performance in a wide variety of video surveillance applications. The camera employs MPEG-4 and MJPEG compression to stream 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. Contact closures and two-way audio allow integration with microphones, speakers, and access control systems. (Note: Not all features are supported when using the camera with Cisco Video Surveillance Manager.) 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 2500 Series IP Camera 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 canbe configured with individual resolution, quality, and frame rate settings.· Day/night operation. The camera provides true day/night functionality that includes an IR filter that automatically switches to night mode in low light scenes. This function can be set to manual or automatic control.

Flexible power options. The wired version of the 2500 camera supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) 802.3af or DC power through an optional external power supply.

Wireless capabilities. The wireless IP camera model supports 1 x 2 Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) communication, which provides better data throughput and higher link range than single antenna designs. The wireless IP camera offers strong wireless security using Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA)/WPA2 and supports various network protocols for 802.1x authentication.

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. The camera also provides two digital inputs and two digital outputs that can be used to initiate specific actions when an alarm is detected.

Mounting options.* The camera can be installed with a fixed mount or with an optional external pan/tilt mount and motorized zoom lens.

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