DSP (digital signal processing) CCD "Day/ Night" POWER ZOOM camera with new Sony® high resolution imager. Built-in power zoom 27x optical lens (+ 10X digital zoom magnification included). This unit is 'plug & play' compatible with ALL of our recorders (DVR and VCR) and wireless equipment. It's also compatible with all consumer VCRs as well as most television sets (those with standard composite RCA / BNC or even S-video inputs).


What an amazingly crisp high resolution camera! This is the installer's choice for all kinds of stationary video applications. With the newly revised high resolution Sony SuperHAD DSP (digital signal processing) CCD imager chipset- this features unbeaten picture quality and features to similar size / type cameras.

This camera now features the latest brand new Sony CCD technology known as Wide Dynamic Range. The Wide Dynamic technology is built on the latest high resolution Sony Vertical Double-Density interline CCD platform.

One of the most fundamental "laws" of photography is that you never take a picture into a bright light source, like having the sun in the background. Shooting into the sun will yield a black shadowy silhouette and many features are left indistinguishable.

The same fundamental "law" also holds true for video surveillance photography, but Sony has a great solution. The new WDR technology allows a CCTV camera to deliver crisp, high resolution images in real-world environments with diverse and multidimensional lighting.

How does it work? A Wide Dynamic camera simultaneously takes pictures of two polar opposite fields and uses a specialized chipset to combine the images (almost like using two separate cameras to capture the same picture and then combine them using a computer). But with WDR there is no human intervention required -- just pure advanced technology. The image below is a brilliant example of the difference this new technology
can make based on diverse lighting conditions within a single indoor environment.

The TV-DN270 Wide Dynamic Range is fully adjustable to suit your needs. Like brightness and contrast control, this is an image quality feature you can change in the camera's on-screen programming guide.

Because you want to go super high quality picture and have zoom and ability to control exposure, etc, our (newer) TV-DN270 may be the ultimate replacement. Rather than a manually-adjustable optical lens, DN270 features an integrated/ internal motorized optical lens with auto-focus + minor near/ far manual electronic control.

You control the exposure, white balance, etc. etc. with a TON of menu selections available. * These are selected by use of wired remote control while viewing OSD (on screen display) output. Wired remote is available in 115' or 4' cable lengths.

* And with the mechanically removed IR filter- which is automatic and doesn't kick in until extreme low lux situations, ultra-low light shots will also be possible in the monochrome/ starlight mode..... without any shift in the focus.

** Tripod mount plate can be fixed to top or bottom of camera for mounting inside a weatherproof camera housing.

Unlike many of our auto-sensing "day-night" cameras which can change image between color and black & white seamlessly and instantly- this particular camera has a mechanical iris function which, when activated- results in a brief pause where screen goes blank before reverting to its "digital slow shutter mode". In this super low-lux mode (which also works great with infrared IR lighting).

This camera is technically a 1/4" image sensor , which usually is a caution for an inferior image sensor to 1/3". However, forget about that aspect with this one. Our TV-DN270 delivers images at what many visually consider 'broadcast quality' video.

We carry ONLY the LATEST and BEST in CCTV chipset technology and circuit board engineering (both aspects are critical to produce a high quality CCD camera)! Too many in our industry are still liquidating 'antiques' on an unsuspecting public, often even unaware themselves that better technology exists.

Common Applications:

• Residential and commercial high resolution indoor & outdoor* (*w/ weatherproof housing) security
• General video applications where a high quality camera is needed for a variety of focal views
• Commercial security where an operator can have dynamic control of camera
• Remote video applications for external camera controls through networked or wireless data transfer
• Solutions to applications in which bright light is available in daytime but conditions are much more dimly lit
• Used in conjunction with common IR infrared lighting solutions
• OEM & scientific / machine industrial purposes

Available Options:

Handheld wired remote control with 4' cable & threaded mount interface included FREE with each #TV-DN270 ordered.

Special 'cutaway' cable included free. This cable allows user to access the configured controls for certain specialized remote purposes.

DELUXE 7 piece bonus accessory kit included FREE with each camera ordered! ($60+ value) Features 25 ft. video + power cable which can be upgraded to 50', 100' or even 150' in your choice of black or white color!

*Optional remote control with short 4' cable available. Please contact us or simply tell operator when ordering for free substitution of shorter cable.

Variations / Alternate Equipment to Consider:

We also carry a special color-only version of this camera #TV-C270 which is physically identical and actually provides AMAZING low-light color ability for many types of lower lux applications.

For the ultimate in versatility and performance, we also carry a special remote PTZ (pan tilt zoom) weatherproof dome version of this camera #DN-PTZ which gives user the ability to remotely control the up/ down and side-to-side position of the camera- as well as zoom and detail focus adjustment from a single handheld remote control or optional keyboard with joystick.


This is a non-weatherproof camera, and must be properly protected in a special outdoor housing for outside mounts.
