5 Mega-pixel PoE Box IP Camera


  • Overview
  • Professional, High-Resolution, Day-and-Night Network Camera
    PLANET ICA-2500 is a 5 mega-pixel, high-resolution camera for the round-the-clock surveillance over IP network. It supports H.264, MPEG-4, and M-JPEG compression formats to deliver excellent picture quality in 5 mega-pixel resolutions at 15 frames per second (fps). Incorporating the mega-pixel vari-focal lens from TAMRON, which is specially designed for surveillance applications, the ICA-2500 provides high quality images under all lighting conditions. It is an ideal solution for indoor/outdoor surveillance applications in the buildings, roads, parking areas, garages, railway stations, airports, etc.
    Day & Night Surveillance
    The ICA-2500 features an automatic, removable infrared-cut filter to provide color video when there is sufficient light, and black/white video in dark conditions. The ICA-2500 is able to maintain clear images 24 hours a day.
    Extraordinary Image Quality
    Together with the powerful image processing attributes like Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) and 3D Digital Noise Reduction (3DNR) technology, the ICA-2500 is able to filter the intense backlight surrounding a subject and remove noises from video signal. Thus, an extremely clear and exquisite picture quality can be produced even under any challenging lighting conditions.
    Advanced Event Management
    The ICA-2500 supports a number of advanced features that enhance the camera flexibility and capabilities. The auto-iris function improves the image quality and avoid over exposure. The AV output enables 2-way audio communication. The embedded micro SD/SDHC card slot facilitates the image storage locally. It also provides the RS-485 interface for an optional pan/tilt enclosure connection to effectively perform pan/tilt management. The inputs/outputs interface of the ICA-2500 can connect to external devices such as door sensors and relays to activate light or closed doors automatically.

    Flexible Installation and Power Functionality
    The ICA-2500 incorporates 802.3af Power over Ethernet standard so it can be powered via the network cable, eliminating the need for power cables and reducing installation costs. With Gigabit Ethernet Transmission capability, the ICA-2500 gives users the utmost bandwidth flexibility and storage efficiency. The ICA-2500 is ONVIF compliant and therefore is interoperable with other brands in the market. It also includes the 64 channel central management software for efficient surveillance monitoring. The ICA-2500 is indisputably the top choice for reliable and high performance surveillance.

  • Applications
  • Remote Monitoring for Indoor Application
    The ICA-2500 supports 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE), which is able to power directly through Ethernet cable from PoE power sourcing equipment, thus eliminating the need for power cables and reducing installation costs. Besides, it provides Gigabit Ethernet transmission capability to give users the utmost advantage in flexible bandwidth usage and efficient surveillance image storage.
    Day-and-Night Vision Application with the ICA-2500
    The ICA-2500 features an automatic, removable infrared-cut filter, which enables the camera to provide color video when there is sufficient light, and black/white video in dark conditions. The camera is able to maintain clear images 24 hours a day.
