Cisco Video Surveillance 8030 IP Camera

Product overview

The Cisco® Video Surveillance 8030 IP Camera is an outdoor, high-definition, full-functioned video endpoint with an integrated infrared illuminator and industry-leading image quality and processing power. The camera is capable of full 2560 x 1920 (5 MP) resolution and up to 60 frames per second (fps) performance while optimizing network usage with either H.265, H.264, or MJPEG compression. H.265 compression with Smart Stream II provides more efficient image compression rates in comparison with H.264 encoding, by as much as 80 percent in some cases. Contact closures and two-way audio allow integration with microphones, speakers, and access control systems. With its open, standards-based design, the camera shown in Figure 1 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 8030 IP Camera offers a variety of benefits, including:

     True high-definition video: The camera streams crisp and clear 2560 x 1920 (5 megapixel) video at 30fps while maintaining low network bandwidth.

     Motorized focus and zoom: The lens on the 8030 IP Camera allows the focus and zoom to be controlled remotely, greatly simplifying installations and field of view adjustments.

     Integrated infrared illuminator: The infrared illuminator can light an area up to 30 meters away.

     Outdoor-ready: An IP67 and IK10-rated enclosure and an included mounting bracket allow for outdoor mounting straight out of the box.

     Quad streaming: The camera can stream H.265, 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 infrared filter that automatically switches to night mode in low-light scenes. This function can be set to manual, automatic, or scheduled control.

     Privacy regions: The camera supports up to five user-defined privacy regions. Any video within a privacy region is masked in the video stream.

     Local storage: Video data can automatically be recorded to an SD card when the camera loses network connectivity.

     Bidirectional audio: The camera supports full-duplex audio operation.

     Open API. Support for ONVIF Profile G and S allows for standards-based interoperability and communications with other ONVIF appliances.

     Flexible power options: The camera supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) 802.3at or 12VDC power through an optional external power supply.

     Mounting options: The camera can be surface-mounted to the ceiling or wall. Accessory mounts are available for other mounting options.
