580 TVL Auto-tracking 27X PTZ Dome Surveillance Camera
  Review by Jed Broadwater on Mar 22, 2014
Excellent auto tracker PTZ camera with good low light sensitivity on the sensor. The 27X is quite powerful and clear and the PTZ movements are quick and stable with little to no vibration. The tracking and programming capabilities are hard to beat, it could just use a bump up in the resolution of the sensor.

580 TVL Auto Tracking 27X PTZ Dome Surveillance Camera

  Review by Gibbs, Linda (New Mexico USA) on Feb 07, 2014
My company recently decided to add an auto-tracking PTZ camera with a reasonable zoom magnification to our system. They asked me to research the cameras available and, since we originally purchased a Security Camera King Federal Series DVR and cameras I started here first. I didn't stop with just Security Camera King though, mostly out of curiosity. However, I couldn't find anything that was better or had a better price to quality ration, so I returned here. In addition, we have been very satisfied with our current system, both the DVR and cameras that we purchased from Security Camera King that we felt confident that we could trust in the performance of this camera.

We ordered the camera on line without any assistance and received it in four business days. Our own staff installed the camera and they tell me that installation went very smoothly. My own personal experience with seeing the results of this camera are very good. We have a tendency these days to be "spoiled" by high resolution and megapixel cameras but other than the slightly lower than maximum resolution, this camera works exceedingly well. Unless it's required for our bid/contract process, I doubt I will be researching any other sites for any future purchases.

  Review by Larry Mahoney on Sep 26, 2013
Good camera that comes with everything you need to install it including the white gloves to keep the scratches to the dome a minimum. This camera is heavy on the zoom and auto tracking side with a very powerful 27X optical zoom. It's a little light on the resolution side with only a 520TVL color resolution. Nonetheless, the video is still clear, crisp and detailed and what you may not see clearly due to lack of definition from resolution you certainly can make up for by zooming with the powerful 27X lens. It also has a 10X digital zoom but we don't use because we haven't had the need for it. It's a pretty good day/night camera being rated at 0.5 lux minimum for color and 0.001 lux minimum for black and white. Of course you probably purchased this camera as did we and that was for its auto-tracking capability which does an excellent job. It has motion auto tracking with intelligent surveillance with alarm features and all of the other actions you would expect out of a typical PTZ such as presets, auto cruise, and pattern scans. The video enhancements are there too such as backlight compensation zones, white balance, and such. Security Camera King's technical support department was very patient and helpful to me for installing this camera and getting it set up our system.

Auto-tracking 27X Day/Night PTZ Dome Surveillance Camera

  Review by Jack Neuman, Security Supervisor on Aug 07, 2013
A PTZ camera often seems incredibly expensive compared to other average digital security video cameras, and granted, literally the price is more. But under the right conditions and placement, one PTZ camera can replace several stationary cameras making the price of a PTZ camera range from cost efficient to literally a cheaper alternative. In addition, this camera's auto tracking feature can literally relieve the work load on our security staff.

The camera records high quality video, although it would be nice to see the difference if the resolution were bumped up from the working 520TVL to 700 TVL. In many ways the powerful 27X zoom can make up for the slightly lower resolution. It is absolutely loaded with a ton of options and features that increase its versatility dynamically and it is a true day/night camera with pretty good minimum light sensitivity especially when the DSS (Light Sensitivity) is engaged (0.001 Lux).

Auto-Ttracing 27X Day/Night PTZ Dome Surveillance Camera

  Review by John Coby on May 22, 2013
Once you install this camera you can basically sit back and let it do all the work. The camera is easy to mount despite the complex inner workings of the unit itself. The resolution isn't the highest, it's more like "middle of the road" with 520 TVL, but the video picture is still high quality and the colors are pretty accurate too. Don't expect the automatic tracking to pinpoint someone's face from their whole body and stick with it to the point of constant facial feature identification, but it will EASILY track the whole person and when within the proper range include enough facial characteristics for identification. Remember, I'm talking about the automatic tracking function here. In manual mode you can zoom in as tight as you want with no problems. The camera offers good receptivity to light being rated for low light condition in color at 1.0 lux and 0.5 lux in black and white. That's not great by any means, but crack on the digital sensitivity feature and all of a sudden those numbers drop to 0.001 Lux and that's with very little interfering digital noise. The camera has quite an extensive On Screen Display menu system that allows to you set, adjust, and program various features and settings. Some of the things the camera can do include alarm functions, of course the motion auto tracking, presets, auto cruise, and pattern scans, as well as wide dynamic range and back light compensation. There are many other features; no point in just listing them all here. It's an excellent auto tracker and as far as improvements are concerned probably the biggest improvement that could be made is in the area of resolution (it would be great if they could make this camera with 700 TVL resolution).

  Review by Barry Levin on Apr 21, 2013
This is a real good auto tracker. There isn't much that can get past this camera without it tracking it, especially when it comes to human beings. It has a 520 TVL resolution and a 27X power zoom. When using auto tracking, the camera keeps up with the subject and you can usually make out the facial features well enough to easily identify them, especially if you recognize the individual. When you operate the camera manually, the 27X Zoom definitely gives you the ability to zoom in on facial shots for identification. It is not very low light sensitive so if you plan on using this outdoors at night (in a parking lot for example) I would suggest that you have outdoor lighting in the area to assist the video capture. If you crank the electronic sensitivity up, you can get a 0.001 LUX sensitivity out of it though. For daytime video (and other situations I guess) it does have wide dynamic range so it can compensate for back lighting issues and shadows that would otherwise impede the quality of your video. It also has back light compensation and other features that can be controlled by the On Screen Display menu system. The auto focus and auto iris is pretty quick and responsive and I haven't experienced any chatter like I have seen from some PTZs that can't seem to make up their mind on where to exactly focus or how much light to allow in the camera. The 27X zoom lens works great and can really bring objects closer and larger. I would recommend this camera to others.

  Review by Kurt Murrow on Mar 26, 2013
This is a pretty good camera. The 520 TVL color resolution could use a little "beefing up" but it still produces a pretty good video, even though there isn't a tremendous amount of detail (like you'd see in a 700 TVL color resolution camera for instance). Light sensitivity is pretty good too. The day mode requires a minimum of 1LUX of ambient light (which isn't a problem) and the night mode can handle down to 0.5 LUX or with DSS 0.0001 LUX. The camera has an OSD that can be used to program the camera or adjust many settings on different features. For me, there are two big options that put this camera in the price category it is at. The first is the 27X optical zoom. The zoom feature is absolutely fantastic and at 27X that a pretty powerful optical zoom. That kind of makes up for the lack of a higher resolution because with that powerful of a zoom feature, you can fill the frame with the object you are looking at without necessarily needing the detail of a 700 TVL sensor. The zoom also comes with a 10X digital zoom that is somewhat helpful especially when not all the digital potential is used. The second is the tracking mode and fast movement capabilities of this camera. This camera auto tracks objects (people, cars, animals, whatever) and does an excellent job of keeping them with in the field of view frame. It also has privacy region settings so if the object should move to a non-recording area, the camera will stop. But I guarantee you if it comes back in your designated area, the camera will be there waiting for it. In summary, although the camera may not have the highest resolution or the best low light sensitivity, it does have great auto tracking features and a powerful zoom. The camera was easy to install and doesn't require anything beyond the average for installation. I would recommend it.

Auto-Tracking 27X Day/Night PTZ Dome Surveillance Camera

  Review by Jason Cartwright on Mar 04, 2013
This camera works great! When you purchase this camera your not just purchasing an ordinary PTZ camera, your getting an auto tracker that sticks to objects like glue and can follow them all over the place! It's kind of like having your own little radar system. When the Security Camera King VP-ATDNC27X detects an objects motion it will lock on and follow it all over its field of view. And, if the object moves "off camera" the PTZ is usually automatically there when it comes back. It many ways, this camera can actually save you the cost of paying a additional security personnel to monitor and operate a standard PTZ camera. Besides the auto-tracking function the camera produces a pretty good quality picture too with the Sony Super HAD CCD. You also get pretty good low light sensitivity from this sensor. The resolution isn't bad for there is a lot of room for improvement with it weighing in at 520 TVL. Of course in many ways, the 27X optical zoom can help compensate for that. The camera also has a 10X digital zoom. The camera has an On Screen Display (OSD) with lots of features including wide dynamic range and back light compensation. The most outstanding feature on this camera though is the ability to automatically track and follow.

Auto-tracking 27X Day/Night PTZ Dome Surveillence Camera--Book'em Dano!
2 of 2 people found this posting helpful
  Review by Harry Jackson on Feb 16, 2013
Ha..ha...That's the phrase we usually use to refer to our Security Camera King 27X PTZ. With the auto tracking feature, it can keep track of anybody (or anything really) and follow it and keep it centered as much as possible. One day our camera was tracking a suspected shoplifter and one of the guys monitoring the system said "Book'em Dano" from the old Hawaii Five-0 show and it just stuck. The camera has a resolution of 520 TVL which isn't the best but with the 27X zoom you do get a great video recording. It's also a day/night camera so no infrared LED illuminators are necessary although it will pick up scattered infrared illumination from other lights if they are in its field of view. It's got a good low light visibility rating of 0.0001 LUX. This camera may not be the highest resolution or the fastest PTZ out there, but it sure does auto track extremely well and we are very satisfied with its performance. You won't be disappointed.

  Review by Ballitin, Gary (Kentucky USA) on Feb 03, 2013
I have been a Security Camera King customer since 2009. I've come to trust Security Camera King for their high quality standards and great customer service. I am also familiar with the Veilux line of cameras and feel the same way about them, so when I see a Veilux security camera being sold by Security Camera King there's no question in my mind about the performance and lasting quality of the product. The video recordings this camera produces are very clear and the color is right on. My only indifference to this camera (and what keeps me from rating it a full five stars) is the camera resolution. Yes, the picture quality is good, but it seems like a camera in this class could afford to use a chip set and sensor that could produce something very close to 700 TVL. As for the PTZ functions, they are great! It has a full 360 degree continuous pan, motion auto tracking and intelligent surveillance with an alarm function. The 27X zoom really lets you bring distant objects close. The zoom is another good reason why this camera works so well in large department stores, warehouses, business offices, etc. because you surface, ceiling, or pole mount this camera in the center of a large building and see all around the building and from on side to the other with the 27X zoom. (The camera also has an additional 10X digital zoom but beyond 1 or 2X the picture isn't really enhanced much anymore). The OSD is loaded with many features that can solve a variety of what would otherwise be considered problem settings or conditions. This includes control of the iris and focus, white balance, and nine back light compensation zones. You will pretty much get every penny's worth of quality and value that you invest in this unit.
