Product Description

The Philips 22MS605R B/W Sequential Observation System with 12-inch Monitor and 1 Camera provides convenience and quality in a robust and complete system. This system allows you to view multiple camera locations sequentially in real-time in a full-screen display. Featuring two-way audio and other functionality, the Philips 22MS605R is a complete, self-contained expandable observation system perfect for your home or business applications.

The 22MS605R's 12-inch black-and-white picture-tube monitor includes four composite video inputs and four RCA audio inputs. This unit features an A/V (audio/video) input/output for connecting a VCR or DVR for recording purposes, and variable display sequencing from four- to 40-seconds with a manual override. The camera that comes with the 22MS605R utilizes a 0.33-inch black-and-white CCD (charge-coupled device) image sensor with an integrated four-millimeter fixed-focus lens. This unit can receive a picture at a minimum illumination of one Lux, and includes a built-in microphone and speaker for two-way audio. The 22MS605R features automatic backlight compensation, as well as an electronic shutter with speeds ranging from 1/60 to 1/100,000 of a second. The 22MS605R's camera also comes with its own 75-foot connection cable.

Technical Features:

  • Camera lenses: 4 mm fixed
  • Image sensor: 0.33-inch B/W CCD
  • Sensitivity: minimum illumination of 1 Lux
  • Monitor inputs/outputs: 4 camera inputs with audio, 1 VCR A/V input/output
  • Monitor dimensions: 17 x 15.75 x 16.5 inches (W x D x H)
Designed primarily for indoor use, the Philips 22MS605R offers you everything you need in a basic surveillance system. Though only one camera is included, the 22MS605R allows up to four cameras to be controlled, viewed, and recorded all by a single unit. This system is intended for use with a professional security recorder, such as a time-lapse VCR or a DVR, in order to take advantage of its recording functionality. Users should note that the CCD image sensor in this camera may become permanently damaged if exposed to long hours of direct sunlight or halogen light, so the camera should not be mounted or pointed directly at the sun or other bright-light sources.

About Surveillance Camera Technical Features
Lux rating is the measurement used to indicate how sensitive a camera is to light, and stands for the level of light reflected off a piece of paper by a candle from one meter away. Thus a sensitivity of three would mean a camera could generate an acceptable picture of a piece-of-paper-sized object that was illuminated by the equivalent of three candles from one meter away. The lower the level, the better the camera's ability to work in low-light conditions. The camera's resolution should be greater than or equal to the resolution supported by the system's recorder or monitor. The S/N, or signal to noise ratio, is an important measure of a camera's quality. A poor camera, low-light conditions or poor wiring causes "noise" which consumes processing power and disk space. A camera with a wide dynamic range is ideal, especially for recording areas in which both indoor and outdoor light are present. CCD (charge-coupled device) sensors provide high-quality images that are less susceptible to noise. CMOS (complimentary metal-oxide semiconductor) sensors offer less image quality, but are usually more cost-effective and energy efficient.
