TVD-CV48 DSP (digital signal processing) CCD armor dome camera with new Sony® SuperHAD® 1/3" imager. 4-8mm varifocal/ adjustable zoom lens included installed. This unit is 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 or BNC inputs).


This is one for those who are serious about their security- starting with that of the camera itself. 380+ horizontal TV lines / 0.5 lux performs BETTER than technical specifications when compared to competitive units with same or better specs. The TVD-C36 provides a very sharp color picture with good low-light ability with the latest Sony® SuperHAD® 1/3" image sensor.

Like any manually adjustable zoom/ focus (varifocal) lens camera, this is a nice way to be sure you'll have the perfect view angle from wide to medium angle. So, instead of wondering if a 4mm, 6mm, or 8mm fixed focus lens will work the best in models like our #CC-8HAD/HR, user can be confident to find any angle in between with a razor sharp picture.

Fairly quick and easy to set up and mount. User has ability to manually change the pan and tilt and zoom/ focus of the camera to get optimum angle and view. You can mount this flush to a wall or ceiling. Aspect is set up for ceiling mount, but some choose to 'flip' aspect of camera for wall use. Please see cautions tag below to see why some extra care must be used when handling camera.

This camera can withstand strikes from bats, crowbars and even a blast from a 12 gauge shotgun... it's tough!

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:

• Commercial indoor and outdoor security applications
• Installation in areas with high probability of vandalism or theft

Available Options:

Includes heavy duty mounting plate and mount hardware FREE with each camera ordered.

Includes DELUXE 7 piece bonus accessory kit 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!

Variations / Alternate Equipment to Consider:

We carry a complete line of CS mount security cameras and weatherproof housings.

For indoor, low security purposes, see our line of indoor dome cameras.

This adjustable zoom/ focus lens is manually controlled. For remote zoom or PTZ ability, see our #TV-C270 or #DN-PTZ units.


This camera requires special care when installing- pure and simple. Not extremely difficult, but this unit has special anti-tamper screws which must be inserted properly with the included O-ring seals. If not sealed properly, you might end up with a fishbowl on your hands and no warranty coverage. Special instructions are included, and most customers have no problems whatsoever..... but this is the most complex of our basic cameras to install properly.

These indoor dome cameras are great and can usually last for years and years, but care must be used when mounting or making any adjustments inside the camera. The camera inside these is a specially mounted exposed board camera (which is basically an industry standard for dome cameras). Exposed board circuitry is always prone to external short-circuiting when the dome protection is removed.
