The 1M_WDR series of Megapixel Wide Dynamic Range cameras, from VCR Inc., feature an extra sensitive CMOS sensor that is purported to capture crystal clear pictures under various lighting conditions. With a special night mode, it allows viewing scenes at night in full color at 1280 x 800 pixels without requiring IR illuminations. About the size of a dollar coin and 15 mm in height with a lens, the camera fits in tight spots. Consuming about 1 W of power, it generates little heat, uses no moving parts and is not subject to vibration even under strong winds, thus it is practically maintenance free. A PoE connection to the company's standalone MV2A Server allows images to be sent to VGA monitors, to the optional attached hard drives, as well as over the IP network, and to remote devices such as iPhone/iPAD and Androids. The company also offers an SDK, integration support, and a standard board camera format so OEM customers can continue using their existing camera housing.
