MTB8870 Sample Video
Real-Time 30 Frames-per-Second (FPS) Recording at 3MP 2K Resolution, 15FPS at 8MP 4K Resolution
Another distinguishable spec that you the consumer should know before purchasing a camera is the recording speed and resolution. Our camera records real-time at 30FPS in 3MP resolution and 15FPS at 8MP 4K resolution. With 4K resolution your images will provide superior clarity to be able to identify fine details and gives you greater ability with digital zoom.
Now, as an honest company, we want you to be equipped with the best equipment at the best prices to suit your needs. At this time, we still recommend purchasing the 4MP cameras of ours, more than the 4K cameras. If you have checked the competition you will notice the 4K cameras are all at 15FPS for 4K resolution, just like ours. If you have movement, 15FPS will blur, whereas our 4MP 2K resolution cameras are 30FPS. Most of the competition’s 4MP cameras are still at 20FPS. So overall, we recommend adding just a few 4K cameras on to your packages, more as specialty cameras. With this, we know many people get confused, so please reach out if you don’t understand so we can help you.
Color Night Optics
Our camera has the best night vision on the market with our innovative Color Night Optics feature that continues to give you full-color video in low-light conditions. The low-light conditions piece is critical, as there is no such thing as night vision that is color, don’t be fooled by other marketing materials. Our Color Night Optics only needs .05 lux(measurement of light) without IR to produce a color image, much of our competition needs .5 lux without IR to produce that same color image, almost 10x as much light. In complete dark situations, the infrared lights will automatically switch on and give you up to 150ft of black and white night vision range with ambient lighting and 130ft in complete darkness.
Industry Leading H.265 Video Compression for Less Storage and Bandwidth
The MTB8870 is equipped with top of the line H.265 video compression. Compression is what helps minimize the storage needed to store your video and also reduces the bandwidth needed to send video through the network and to your mobile device. With H.265 compression, you can save up to 50% of storage compared to traditional H.264 compression. Or you can save up to 2x as much video when compared to H.264 with the same amount of storage used. Additionally, it increases the speed at which video transmits through the network and to your mobile device as they are smaller files.
- H.265 compression reduces the amount of storage by 50% compared to traditional H.264 compression
- H.265 compression reduces the file size which in turn increases the speed at which you receive video on your mobile devices and takes up less bandwidth on your network
Wide Field of View
When it comes to field of view, this bullet camera is the cream of the crop with a wide horizontal field of view of 87°, but not so wide that it is unfocused. An 87° field of view is perfect for monitoring large areas, with good focus and clarity. One thing to check to make sure you are comparing apples to apples is the difference between a horizontal and diagonal field of view. Make sure that both are horizontal or diagonal.
Montavue cameras are all equipped with the best components made on the market to produce the best image possible. We strive to produce quality cameras that will give each one of our customers the best image at a very competitive price. This camera is equipped with industry leading Digital Wide Dynamic Range (DWDR), Backlight Compensation (BLC), Highlight Compensation (HLC), and 3D Dynamic Noise Reduction technologies (3D DNR). WDR, BLC, and HLC all fix lighting issues with producing a quality image by minimizing the effects of bright backgrounds and foregrounds and lights in between. The goal is to produce an image that looks similar to if you were there in person. 3D DNR is an important feature for night vision and low light video. It reduces the fuzzy hazy images that are produced from noise transmitted from the camera, which creates a clearer image, cuts down on storage, and reduces false motion alerts.
Simple PoE Installation – Plug and Play
When it comes to simplicity, Montavue has made it so simple that you just need to plug the included Cat5e ethernet cable into a compatible NVR, and the other end into the camera, wait a minute or two and the camera will be auto recognized and pop up on your screen. The PoE simplicity is perfect, as both power and video are transferred through the same cable. It also gives you flexibility with installation. You can run one single cable from the NVR up to 300ft, and then if you need to go further you can hook a PoE switch up and you can run it an additional 300ft for a total of 600ft. Each one of our Montavue cameras come with a 100ft cat5e cable.
With IP cameras the fun doesn’t stop there. You can bring in cameras to your NVR that are plugged in from around the world as long as they have internet access. This gives you limitless capability, and with the ONVIF compatibility of these cameras (all Montavue cameras are ONVIF compatible which means), you can use them on ONVIF compatible software and recorders. For plug and play compatibility we recommend Montavue network video recorders (NVR’s).
4K Monitor or Television is not required for cameras
With 4K cameras, you need a 4K NVR, but you do not need a TV or monitor that has 4K resolution to use them. The benefit of 4K resolution is in case you have a break in, or you need to utilize that 4K image, you can access it and use digital zoom to capture finer details. Without the monitor, it will still record to the NVR in 4K resolution.
Compatible with MontavueGO – Our free mobile viewing app for PC/Mac and Android/Apple
With MontavueGO you can access and control your cameras and surveillance system from around the world with the power of internet and by using our incredibly easy to use application on your mobile device or computer. When using your mobile device simply download the MontavueGO app and scan the QR code on your NVR in order to sync your system to your phone. Now you can view and control your cameras from anywhere. Live viewing and past recordings are only the start, there are an abundant amount of features, one that we love is push notifications. Set the camera to motion detect and when something moves in the area you designate the application will send a push notification to your phone.
Advanced Motion Detection
With each Montavue camera you have the ability to create very distinct motion detection zones. This gives you complete control over the alerts you receive on your phone, or record to your NVR. This advanced feature from Montavue allows you to only view and record the things that matter most. Each individual zone has its own sensitivity levels and thresholds. Gives you the power to fine tune the zones to your exact liking and exclude minimize false notifications from pets.
IntelliVue Smart Playback
With hundreds of hours of stored recordings and pictures it used to be a serious hassle getting the video you needed from your recorders. That is now a thing of the past with IntelliVue, an intelligent motion driven playback software. With IntelliVue you can easily and immediately identify times of motion in a timeline, select the footage you need, and then playback or export those files. This innovative feature from Montavue saves people thousands of hours from reviewing irrelevant recordings.
Intelligent Video Surveillance (IVS)
The MTB4870 is equipped with our Intelligent Video Surveillance features. These include tripwire, face detection, intrusion, missing object, and abandoned object. Those IVS features allow you to monitor the area you are covering very precisely and efficiently, so you are only alerted when you want to be according to your settings.
