The STC-IPM3097A classic design IP camera features 1/2.8" 3 megapixel Sony Exmor™ CMOS sensor. QXGA (2048x1536) resolution and perfect color rendering allow to use the STC-IPM3097A in applications where video signal quality is critical. The IP camera is designed for both indoor and outdoor installation (with outdoor housing).

Triple-Stream Video Transmission at Up to 30 ips
The STC-IPM3097A can stream video in three formats (H.264, MPEG-4, and Motion JPEG) at up to 16 Mbit/s. User can both select compression mode and set up each video stream parameters, its resolution and frame rate. The camera can stream video at maximum frame rate of 20 ips at QXGA (2048x1536), and 30 ips at every other supported resolution including Full HD (1920x1080). Support of three codecs allows to adapt the STC-IPM3097A to network bandwidth, and, for example, provide different rate and quality for live video viewing and recording.

H.264 High Profile Data Transmission
The STC-IPM3097A supports high-performance H.264 High Profile video codec, which requires less bandwidth for video streaming. Due to H.264 HP, the camera can stream video at high resolution, high detail, and parallel audio. Thus, compared to H.264 Baseline and H.264 Main Line, video generated using H.264 High Profile allows to half network load and ensures high video and audio quality without increasing channel capacity requirements.

STC-IPM3097A Operation in Complicated and Low Light Environment
The STC-IPM3097A is equipped with removable IR cut filter, and operates at minimum scene illumination of up to 0.1 Lux in color mode and up to 0.01 Lux in B/W mode. For extremely low light environment, cameras can activate Slow Shutter mode. With WDR (adjustable level), the IP camera ensures brightness balanced video under high contrast lighting, backlight, etc.

The STC-IPM3097A has an external control output which can be used for synchronization of Day/Night switching with activation/deactivation of IR LED illuminator. 

IP Camera Connection to External Devices
USB 2.0 port and micro SD/SDHC memory card slot allows the STC-IPM3097A to use external storage devices. Data recording to memory card can be configured by schedule or event (e.g., in case of disconnection). After reconnection, remote viewing of recorded video is possible. In addition, the IP camera supports two-way audio transmission with external speaker. Alarm input and output allow to connect alarm sensors and remote devices, with their operation configurable via STC-IPM3097A's Web menu.

Centralized Monitoring & Recording Software
To implement IP video surveillance systems of any scale with Smartec and third-party video cameras and servers, we recommend to use NetStation software. The software offers wide capabilities for multichannel video/audio viewing and recording, allows to use interactive eMaps and provide archive smart search.

All STC-IPM3097A settings are accessible via direct connection to MS Internet Explorer after authorization. The camera is bundled with a special utility for camera network search.
