Product Overview

Cisco ® Video Surveillance 2900 Series Standard Definition IP PTZ Cameras are feature-rich cameras designed for superior performance, image quality, and ease of deployment. These cameras allow for viewing and control of analog video while simultaneously viewing, recording, and controlling IP video.
The cameras come with integrated camera optics packages. They offer 360° continuous pan rotation, as well as 256 PTZ presets. In addition, the back boxes for these cameras feature built-in memory, which can be used to store camera- and location-specific dome settings, including labels, presets, patterns, and zones.
Cisco Video Surveillance 2900 Series IP Cameras support two simultaneous video streams. The two streams can be compressed in MJPEG, MPEG-4, and H.264 formats across several resolution configurations. The streams can be configured in a variety of frame rates, bit rates, and group of pictures (GOP) structures for additional bandwidth administration.
All cameras in the Cisco Video Surveillance 2900 Series feature a Sony ® EXview HAD ® imager for increased sensitivity, and low light technology that allows the cameras to compensate for scenes where minimal light is present. In addition, the cameras feature built-in motion detection and advanced 128X wide dynamic range (WDR) that enables the system to compensate for scenes where dramatic contrasts in lighting are present. The 35X day/night camera also supports electronic image stabilization, which digitally reduces the blurring of the camera image due to vibration caused by external sources such as wind and traffic.

Web Interface

The Cisco Video Surveillance 2900 Series supports the Internet Explorer 8.0 browser for remote setup and administration.

Window Blanking

Window blanking is used to conceal user-defined privacy areas that cannot be viewed by an operator. The Cisco Video Surveillance 2900 Series supports up to eight blanked windows. A blanked area will appear on the screen as a solid gray window.

Video Management

The Cisco Video Surveillance 2900 Series connects to Cisco Video Surveillance Manager Version 6.3.1 and later.
