The STC-IPM3697A IP camera features 1/2.8" 3 megapixel Sony Exmor™ CMOS sensor. QXGA (2048x1536) resolution and perfect color rendering allow to use the STC-IPM3697A in applications where video signal quality is critical. Built-in heater and IR LEDs ensure a wide scope of camera application both indoors and outdoors.

Triple-Stream Video Transmission at Up to 30 ips
The STC-IPM3697A can stream video in three formats (H.264, MPEG-4, and Motion JPEG) at 12 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 15 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-IPM3697A to network bandwidth, and, for example, provide different rate and quality for live video viewing and recording.

Weatherproof Design and Convenient Setup
The STC-IPX3697A can operate in various weather conditions at temperatures ranging from –40° C to +50° C. Its IP66-rated metal housing is equipped with a fan, with switching controllable by a dedicated processor. The camera features compact size (83x82x166 mm) and is supplied with a complete feedthrough bracket.

Megapixel auto iris lens
Built-in 3-12 mm varifocal megapixel auto iris lens provides 96° to 24° horizontal angle of view and allows to install the camera at various distances from the monitored area.

STC-IPM3697A Operation in Complicated and Low Light Environment
The STC-IPM3697A is equipped with removable IR cut filter and operates at minimum scene illumination of up to 0.5 Lux in color mode and up to 0.02 Lux in B/W mode. For extremely low light environment, cameras can activate Slow Shutter mode.

In zero-light conditions, the STC-IPM3697A activates 40 built-in highly effective IR LEDs to provide viewing distance of up to 40 meters. IR illumination level is adjustable. If required, forced deactivation of IR LEDs is possible.

With WDR (adjustable level), the IP camera ensures brightness balanced video under high contrast lighting, backlight, etc.

IP Camera Connection to External Devices
IP camera supports two-way audio transmission with external microphone and speaker. Alarm input and output allow to connect sensors and remote devices, with their operation configurable via STC-IPM3697A'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-IPM3697A settings are accessible via direct connection to MS Internet Explorer after authorization.

The camera is bundled with a special utility for camera network search.
