BB-HCM735CE Description


Mega-Pixel & H.264/MPEG-4, Motion JPEG Moving Image Function
An advanced 1.3million Pixels Image Sensor being employed, BB-HCM715 enables you to check the details of any moving image more clearly than before. BB-HCM715 corresponds well to JPEG System, MPEG-4 System (which has a high image compression rate and so is suitable for monitoring any moving image) and H.264 System which is higher in image compression rate than MPEG-4 System. Through BB-HCM715, you can monitor any moving image properly in accordance with your purposes. Plus, simultaneous use of two different kinds of communication systems (*1-1) is possible with BB-HCM715. Its image-updating speed is 30 pcs/sec at max in case of [640 x 480 dots] of H.264. Therefore, you can catch any moving target through very smooth and high-definition image monitoring by BB-HCM715.
Note: *1-1:Combination of simultaneous use of the two different communication systems is limited to [H.264 & Motion JPEG] or [MPEG-4 & Motion JPEG] only. Combination of [H.264 & MPEG-4] is not available.
Note: *1-2:When you use any mobile phone for monitoring a moving image, the monitoring is available through JPEG only. The Camera7s Voice Function is not available in this case.


H.264/MPEG-4 Visual License
When you use more than one(1) PCs to see any moving image by H.264, you are requested to buy User License Accessory (Item No. BB-HCA8) additionally.
* When you use more than one(1) PCs to see any moving image by MPEG-4, you are requested to buy User License Accessory (Item No. BB-HCA5) additionally.


EX Zoom Function
Its EX Zoom Function enables you to zoom in any moving image clearly without deteriorating its image quality. This high image-quality zooming is available when you take out the target part from a moving image of [1280 x 960 dots] and put it onto an enlarged image of [640 x 480 dots].
* EX Zoom Function is available only when the max. image size is set at [640 x 480 dots] mode.
[When the max. image size is set at [1280 x 960 dots] mode, any image at [640 x 480 dots] or smaller mode cannot be available.]
* Simultaneous use with [2 x 2 Pixel Binning] is not available.


Well-Designed for Outdoor Installation
BB-HCM735 doesn’t require any housing for outdoor use. BB-HCM735 is well-designed for outdoor use as well as installation on any outside places such as outer wall of a house or shop and other structures.
With this unusual feature, BB-HCM735 can be installed on various places outside and used in much more ways than previous types.
* BB-HCM735 complies with IP55 (dust-proof & jet-proof type).


Preset Sequence
If you preset the angle/direction of the camera of BB-HCM715 beforehand, you can check a moving image of the same place from its preset angle easily by clicking Preset Button on Operation Panel. You are recommended to preset the angle/direction of this camera when you need to check a moving image of the same place from the same direction so often. If you use this function, the camera regularly monitors the same place from pre-set angle/direction.


Analogue Video Output*1
By connecting a cable directly to the camera’s video output terminal, you can use your existing TV or video recorder for monitoring. When using analogue video output, the camera automatically switches to interlace scanning*2 to suppress flicker in motion images.
*1-1 Compatible with both NTSC and PAL systems.
*1-2 A mini video cable (with 3.5-mm mini plug) is required.
*1-3 The camera cannot be controlled with analogue video output.
*1-4 The video image displays poorly in colour night view mode.
*2 Images are output to the PC with progressive scanning.


2x2 Pixel Binning
Through this function, 4 different sensor pixels are virtually processed as single pixel to improve the camera’s sensitivity so that you can check any moving image of a dark place.
* The above picture shows an example of an image, by BB-HCM715, of [640 x 480 dots] under the 1 lux illuminance.
* This function is available only in [640 x 480 dots mode].
(When the max. image size is set at [1280 x 960 dots] mode, any image at [640 x 480 dots] or smaller mode cannot be available.
* ON/OFF mode of this function is already preset when this camera is delivered to you.
Automatic switchover between ON and OFF is impossible.
* When this function is used, EX ZOOM Function is not available.
* 4-Pixel Integration Function is turned ON, any image may be subject to be a little unclear than when the function is turned OFF.


Easy PoE Power Supply*
Power is supplied through the Ethernet cable, so the network camera can be easily installed on the ceiling, since no additional work is required for a power outlet.(Power can also be supplied by an optional AC adaptor.)
* To use the BB-HCM715, Internet access equipment and a power supply consisting of either a Power over Ethernet Hub or an AC adaptor are required.


SD/SDHC Memory Card* Recording
A large number of images can be saved onto an SD/SDHC Memory Card inserted into the camera. The images on the card can be checked over the Internet, or if no network is being used, monitoring is possible using only the camera by simply storing the images onto the card.
* The SD/SDHC Memory Card is sold separately. The camera supports 256MB, 512MB, 1GB, 2 GB, 4 GB, and 8 GB SD/SDHC Memory Cards.


Remote Pan and Tilt Control
You can use a PC or cell phone directly to change the direction that the camera is facing while monitoring the image. This lets you monitor a large area with a single camera.


Multi-camera Capability*1
Images from several cameras can be monitored and transceiver-type voice communication*2 can be used simultaneously.
*1 Moving pictures from up to 9 cameras can be displayed on a single screen. Still images from up to 16 cameras can be displayed.
*2 This function can be used only with a PC. It cannot be used with a cell phone.


Cell Phone Monitoring*
Still images from the camera can be checked on any cell phone that is capable of Internet access. The pan, tilt, and zoom functions can also be operated by using the cell phone.
* Models that support JPEG only. The audio feature does not work on cell phones.
