1 camera View up to 4 camera locations in real time (30 fps) Slim and light hi-resolution TFT-LCD monitor with 4 camera inputs (4 DIN, 4BNC and 4 audio RCA) camera based activity 720 x 480 monitor resolution Selectable PIP viewing options and two time zoom Video loss detection and warning On-screen viewing: date time and camera Includes: 17" quad monitor, one or four 1/4" color CCD cameras with 3.6mm lens, remote and mounting hardware/62' connection cable for each camera
The Lorex SG17TQ5541-A 17-inch Real Time Color TFT-LCD Quad Monitor Observation System with 1 Camera provides convenience, versatility, and quality in a robust and complete system. This system not only allows you to view up to four camera locations sequentially in full-screen, or simultaneously in quad or PIP (picture-in-picture) modes, but also includes capability for PTZ (pan/tilt/zoom) control. The included camera has a built-in dual-motion sensing function for full-motion or alert-sensing activity so you won't miss any action. Featuring two-way audio, remote control, and other features, the Lorex SG17TQ5541A is a complete, self-contained observation system perfect for everything from the home or business applications, to professional security installations.
The SG17TQ5541A's 17-inch color TFT (Thin Film Transistor, also called active-matrix LCD) flat-screen monitor can be operated via its built-in main panel or via an included remote control. With ultra-high brightness and contrast ratio for a true and sharp image, this monitor includes four DIN/BNC (Bayonet Neill-Concelman, RF-type) composite video inputs, and four RCA audio inputs. Also included are four alarm inputs with two alarm outputs for connecting external alarm devices. The SG17TQ5541A monitor features on-screen display of date/time/camera, a stand-by switch that allows recording to occur while monitor is off, video-loss detection warning, and two-way audio capability that lets you speak to a camera location with the push of a button. This unit also features selectable still-frame in quad or full-screen, as well as selectable duplex or actual recording options. Multi-voltage compatible, the SG17TQ5541A's monitor runs on 100 to 240-volts of power, achieves a horizontal resolution of 720 x 480 effective pixels at up to 30 fps (frames-per-second), and has an operating temperature of 32 to 125 degrees Fahrenheit.
The camera that comes with the SG17TQ5541A utilizes a 0.25-inch color CCD (charge-coupled device) image sensor with a 3.6mm fixed lens. Powered from the monitor via the connecting cable, this camera achieves a horizontal resolution of 330 TVL with 512 by 492 active picture elements. Constructed of durable ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) plastic, this camera can receive a usable picture in very low-light conditions with a minimum illumination of 0.5 Lux. This unit features an automatic electronic shutter with speeds ranging from 1/60 to 1/100,000 of a second, and a PIR (passive InfraRed) motion sensor that alerts you of camera activity. The SG17TQ5541A's camera comes with its own 63-foot connection cable allowing you to install it virtually anywhere, and can operate in temperatures ranging from 14 to 122 degrees Fahrenheit.
Designed primarily for indoor use, the Lorex SG17TQ5541A offers you everything you need in a security surveillance system. Though only one camera is included, the SG17TQ5541A allows up to four cameras to be controlled, viewed, and recorded all by a single unit. Users should note that the CCD image sensor in the 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 Lux 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 Lux 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.
