The Cisco® Video Surveillance 2600 IP Camera is a high-resolution, feature-rich digital camera designed to provide superior performance in a wide variety of video surveillance applications. The camera employs H.264 compression and streams 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 2600 IP Camera offers a variety of benefits, including:

Optimal imaging efficiency. The 2600 IP Camera can stream video using H.264 compression, reducing network traffic and storage requirements while providing superior image quality.

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 deliver two simultaneous video streams over the network. A combination of H.264, MPEG4, and MJPEG can be configured. Each video stream can be 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 can automatically switch to night mode in low light scenes. This function can be set to manual or automatic control.

Flexible power options. The 2600 IP Camera supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) 802.3af or DC power through an optional external power supply.

Embedded security and networking. The camera provides 802.1X authentication and supports IP Multicast for enhanced bandwidth management.

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.

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

Bidirectional audio.* The camera supports full-duplex audio and options for half-duplex operation.

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