Cisco® Video Surveillance 4500E Series IP Cameras are high-definition, feature-rich digital cameras designed for superior performance in a wide variety of video surveillance applications. The cameras employ true high-definition (HD) video and H,264 compression, streaming up to 30 frames per second (fps) at 1080p (1920 x 1080) resolution, and 60 fps at 720p (1280 x 720) resolution, offering efficient network utilization with the highest-quality video. Contact closures and two-way audio allow integration with microphones, speakers, and access control systems. 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.

Cisco Video Surveillance 4500E IP Cameras has the additional digital signal processor (DSP) capabilities specifically designed to support real-time video analytics at the edge on the 4500E IP Camera. Applications and end users have the option to run multiple analytics packages without compromising video streaming performance on the camera. This highly flexible computing platform is ideal for next-generation video analytics applications.

The Cisco Video Surveillance 4500E IP Camera offers a variety of benefits, including:

True high-definition video. The camera streams crisp and clear 1080p (1920 x 1080) video at 30 frames per second while maintaining surprisingly low network bandwidth. For fast motion applications, the camera can be set to stream 720p (1280 x 720) video at 60 frames per second.

Progressive scan video. The camera captures each frame at its entire resolution using a progressive scan rather than interlaced video capture, which captures each field of video. This feature allows for better detail for video of moving objects, such as faces and license plates on automobiles.

Dual streaming. The camera can stream H.264 and MJPEG video simultaneously. Each video stream can be configured with individual resolution, quality, and frame rate settings.

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

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

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

Multicast support. For enhanced bandwidth management, the camera supports IP Multicast.

Event notification.* The camera can examine designated areas for activity and notify users or other applications when it detects activity that exceeds a predefined sensitivity and 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.

Medianet support. The camera supports the medianet interface. When connected to a Cisco switch that also supports medianet, the camera is recognized as a video endpoint by the switch, which then uses SmartPort macros to set the right network parameters for the video stream on the network.

Video analytics support. The camera provides real-time, edge-based video analytics capabilities.

Local storage. The camera supports local storage to a USB flash drive slot, and requires an optional Cisco USB storage accessory (sold separately). Video is stored locally in case of loss of network connectivity, and requires a separate utility to retrieve and view the video from individual cameras. Locally stored video cannot be used with Cisco Video Surveillance Manager.

Analog video. The camera supports an analog video port for ease of camera installation and field-of-view and focus adjustments.

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