Raising the bar for high-quality imaging

High-quality imaging requires a combination of features that work together to produce clear, detailed, and accurate images. By selecting the Videology Zoom Block camera with these features, you can ensure that your images meet your expectations and deliver the desired results.

  • Optical Zoom + Digital Zoom

    Combined optical and digital zooming capability provides sharp and clear images even at high zoom ratios. 

  • Image Stabilization

    Digital image stabilization (also called electronic image stabilization (EIS)) reduces image blurring through a correction effect. Notably useful when zooming ratios are maximized, as cameras become more sensitive even to the slightest motion. 

  • Noise Reduction

    Digital noise reduction filters noise from the image providing clearer images, especially in low-light conditions.

  • Digital Slow Shutter (DSS)

    When turned on, this function increases sensitivity by increasing exposure times and permits shooting clear images where illumination is very low.

  • Wide Dynamic Range (WDR)

    Ideal for situations with a variety of changing lighting conditions such as backlight, variable ambient illumination, or high-contrast environments. 

  • Intelligent Motion Detection

    This function triggers alerts when motion is detected in designated areas. 

  • Progressive Scan

    Enhances and reduces interlacing artifacts when viewing details in a moving image as such in ANPR/LPR applications. 

  • Easy Set Up

    Settings of the zoom block camera can be implemented using the OSD control board (optional).

A wide range of applications

As already mentioned in our "Past, Present and Future of Videology Zoom Block Cameras" blog post, Videology Zoom Block cameras offer fast autofocusing and optical zoom functions. Their compact form shielded with anodized aluminum chassis around makes them an ideal camera choice to be embedded into a wide variety of applications.

Some sample applications where zoom block cameras are used include gimbal applications, traffic monitoring, drones, UAVs, defense, aerospace, medical and life sciences.
