Pan-Tilt-Zoom IP Camera with 4x Optical Zoom
Large areas are sometimes difficult to monitor, such as vast parking lots, large warehouse, lobbies, and more, but with the Intelligent Video Surveillance (IVS) features, 4x optical zoom, 0°-355° panning rotation, and 0°-90° tilt you will be at ease with this impressive PTZ camera. This PTZ camera has incredible speed to follow and zoom in on the fastest objects at 100° per second panning speed and 60° per second tilt speed.
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, our competition needs .1 lux without IR to produce that same color image, almost 20x as much light. In complete dark situations with no light, this camera will not produce an image, if you need infrared night vision please view the MTZ2040-IR. This camera has similar specs, but has 100ft of infrared night vision.
Intelligent Video Surveillance (IVS)
With our MTZ2040 you will have many advanced features at your disposal to help you detect intrusions, recognize objects and faces and have the camera do all the work once you set your parameters.
- Tripwire: Draw a line by the door, when someone crosses that line your camera will notify you with a push notification to your mobile device and record that scene.
- Abandoned Missing Object: Great for lobbies, airports, banks, etc. This is used by designating a detection zone and setting a time, if an object is put in that area and it surpasses the time it is considered abandoned and will activate record, alarm and send snapshot.
- Object Missing: This is great for valuables. You designate an object, if that object goes missing it will activate record, alarm and send a snapshot.
- Face Detection: This feature detects any human face appearing in the video, captures the face, and sends it to the NVR for processing and analysis. From there it can activate snapshot, record, and alarm.
Real-Time 30 Frames-per-Second (FPS) Recording at 2MP 1080P HD 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 2MP resolution. What does that mean? It means that when an object is moving at normal speeds the camera is recording at the same speeds so it won’t be blurry. Compare that to the competition’s 2MP 1080P or higher resolution PTZ cameras.
Industry Leading H.264+ Video Compression for Less Storage and Bandwidth
The MTZ2040 PTZ Camera is equipped with top of the line H.264+ 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.264+ compression, you can save up to 25% of storage compared to traditional H.264 compression. Additionally, it increases the speed at which video transmits through the network and to your mobile device as they are smaller files.
- H.264+ compression reduces the amount of storage by 25% compared to traditional H.264 compression
- H.264+ 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 PTZ camera is the cream of the crop with a wide horizontal field of view of 112.5° and has the ability to narrow into 30°. Additionally, when you have 0°-355° rotation, you can see 360° even with a narrow field of view, but you don’t want the field of view to be too narrow because then the camera would always have to move to see things. One thing to check and 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. Every Montavue camera is equipped with industry leading Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), 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. No need for two cables to power and control the PTZ. 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).
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.
