Pelco’s Spectra® Pro IR Series can see in absolute darkness. The infrared illumination (IR) has proportional brightness based upon zoom, creating visible pictures without any light up to 150 m from the camera. The IR wavelength is 850 nm giving an almost undetectable light source in locations where visible light is undesired or light pollution is regulated.

The Pro IR Series offers a wider tilt range giving the camera the ability to look above the horizon 15 degrees (center of field of view). 

Spectra Pro IR Series provides a Full HD 1080p 30x optical zoom camera that runs at up to 60 frames per second and provides 100dB of Wide Dynamic Range (WDR). The new camera is available with 30x optical zoom.

Embedded Features

Included in all models are built in video analytics (e.g. Sabotage and Simple Motion Detection). Spectra Pro IR also allows for up to 8 configurable privacy zones. White Balance modes including Auto or Manual are available for overcoming difficult lighting conditions day and night. Spectra Pro IR supports up to 2 TB of onboard local storage (not supplied) that is easily accessible through the ONVIF Profile G protocol or FTP.

Pelco endeavors to be the most open and integrated camera provider in the industry and as a part of that effort Spectra Pro IR is integrated with a long and ever-growing list of 3rd party software and Video Management Systems (VMS)

Camera Sabotage: Detects contrast changes in the field of view. An alarm is triggered if the lens is obstructed by spray paint, a cloth, or a lens cap. Any unauthorized repositioning of the camera also triggers an alarm.

Motion: Generates an alarm in a high traffic area when a person or object moves.
