VIVOTEK IP8172P is a professional box camera offering 5-Megapixel or 1080p Full HD resolution with superb image quality up to 30 fps. Featuring 5-Megapixel resolution and high-performance H.264/MPEG-4/MJPEG compression technology, the IP8172 offers extra-smooth video and wide coverage.

The IP8172P employs many advanced features to allow users to fully utilize the high definition video. With high performance H.264/MPEG-4/MJPEG compression technology, the IP8172P offers high-quality video with resolution up to 1080p full HD @ 30fps. With a P-iris lens, which controls the iris with extreme precision with its built-in stepper motor, it maintains the iris opening at an optimal level at all times, resulting in superior image clarity and depth of field.

In addition, the IP8172P is also equipped with a focus assist button to allow users to precisely adjust the camera focus. After pushing the focus assist button on the camera unit, an indicator will be displayed onscreen with detailed focus information, which will change in accordance with the manual adjustment. Moreover, continuing to push the button will zoom in on the target area for fine tuning, resulting in better usability and picture clarity.

Additionally, the IP8172P can be connected directly to an analog monitor with an BNC connector, providing integrators with more flexibility and hassle-free installation for a variety of applications.

WDR Enhancement allows users to identify image details in extremely bright as well as dark environments. Other high-end features such as multiple streams, video cropping, ePTZ, SD/SDHC/SDXC card slot, PoE, and the included 32-CH recording software make the IP8172P is indisputably the top choice for reliable and high performance megapixel surveillance.
