|Help Desk 1 of 1: AirGoggleTM Network Camera JPEG Still Image|
Inscape Data AirGoggleTM network camera and server with the exception of the retired NVC100 series network cameras have the ability to display JPEG still image frame from using the following convention:
This feature allows any web programmer to easily pull a digital still image from the Inscape Data network camera or server to any website. Similar to adding digital photos to a website, the following html code could be used:
<img scr= http://network_camera_ip_address/stillimg.jpg/>
Depending on the type of customization is needed; the web programmer could reference to many available open source codes to automatically refresh the images every X second. This method of bringing the network camera image is an alternative to streaming MPEG4 video to a web page.
Since the digital still image is in JPEG format, website visitor may save the image
to their own PC. This feature is attractive for network camera owners wishes to send digital images to a website or for custom applications.

|Techonology Corner: New Day & Night Technology with Dual CCD|
|In the realm of 24 hour video surveillance there are essentially two major types of camera: color and black & white. Black and white cameras are most versatile with excellent sensitivity to pick up low light and it is therefore good for daytime or nighttime use. Black and white surveillance cameras have been in service since the beginning of video surveillance history but since the real world unfolds in color, the need for more detail pushes the envelope of video surveillance technology into color video surveillance cameras.
With the advance of CCD (charge coupled device) optical pickup sensor technology, color video surveillance camera became available for use by security professionals. Color cameras provide the additional details not available with black and white cameras. For example: casinos were able to determine a subject's complexion as well as the color of their attire. Policemen are able to review prerecorded video to locate a green vehicle. Although color cameras work well in well-lit places, there was a performance tradeoff between color cameras and black and white cameras in low light environments. Due to the wide range of electromagnetic spectrum sensitivity, CCD sensors are able to pickup IR (infrared) light. The ability to pickup IR light is a positive behavior for security surveillance camera application in covert or zero lux surveillance operations. For color cameras to transfer video images correctly it needs an IR cut filter. IR cut filter is installed between the lens and CCD sensor. The need for IR cut filter is because IR light causes certain colors to show up blank on the video monitor. Although color cameras could be used in nighttime surveillance, it is not as superior as black and white cameras due to the need to block IR light which could be used for nighttime surveillance. For this reason, Inscape Data offers standard camera package with automatic removable IR blocking filter.
Cameras with mechanical removable IR blocking filter also known as day and night, allows for color video surveillance during daytime and black & white surveillance during night time for around the clock video surveillance. To strike a balance between good color pickup and IR sensitivity, image sensors with broad electromagnetic spectrum pickup is utilized. In certain surveillance application where extreme difference in lighting condition, new concept in surveillance camera technology was needed, Dual mechanical exchange CCD camera with integrated IR illuminator.
Inscape Data Corporation, the leader in wireless and IP video is proud to introduce two new models the NVC360 and NVC800 with dual exchange CCD, the newest concept in zero lux network video surveillance technology.
The NVC360 and NVC800 network cameras are precision designed to house two CCD, a 1/3" Sony Super HAD color CCD and Sony Ex-View black and white CCD. Mechanically, the two CCD exchanges depending on ambient light condition. The Sony Ex View black and white CCD is capable of 600 TVL of high-resolution 0.003 lux surveillance and the Sony Super HAD CCD is capable of 520 TVL of crisp high quality color video for the best viewing capability in its class. Compared to the conventional Sony CCD, the Exview CCD has the highest image sensitivity in the market
In addition to doubling the CCD sensors to provide superior low light surveillance, the integrated high power 850nm IR LED illuminators makes objects visible in pitch black environments up to 50 meters for video surveillance.
Mechanically, the NVC360 and NVC800 are designed with a rugged IP66 rated vandal resistant housing with heater and blower. Its durability and ruggedness allows the NVC360 and NVC800 to be used in the harshest weather and operating environments.
