In addition, it can also operate at 3 Mega-Pixel at 25 frames per second or 1080P at 30 frames per second. The enhanced sensor can work in light condition as low as 0.2 lux. Therefore, AirLive BC-5010 can offer better quality video in low light environment.

Clear Motion Technology

AirLive BC-5010 provides bright and vivid colorful image due to its high quality low lux sensor. However, the most beautiful image will be useless if it is not able to catch the details of moving objects. AirLive has developed the Clear Motion Technology to minimize the motion blur caused by moving objects. So you can have the details where you need it.

New SecurSense User’s Interface

The BC-5010 features the new SecurSense interface from AirLive. Not only it is very easy to use and work correctly for different browser environments, it also has the most completed set of functions. Functions, such as “Push-to-Talk” and “Audio File Playback”, allow your IPCAM to say a pre-recorded phrase or audio songs when alarms are triggered

Changeable Lens and Auto-Iris Support

AirLive BC-5010 can support both C mount and CS mount lens without needs for adapters. In addition, the support for Auto-Iris lens allows automatic aperture adjustment to improve image quality to avoid over exposure.

WDR Support

When strong back light is surrounding a subject, camera with wide dynamic range technology can adjust the intense backlight and dark area to balance the whole screen. Therefore, user can recognize the details in the bright and dark area.


Diverse of Interface for Integrating

AirLive BC-5010 supports SD/SDHC card and USB flash drive for local storage. It also supports DI/DO for further integrating with additional sensor and alarm. Connect AirLive BC-5010 with the external microphone and speaker; it can perform the two-way audio function.

Optional High Mega-Pixel Lens

AirLive, the leading IP camera manufacturer, has launched high quality Mega-Pixel lenses. ACC-MPL-4mm is a Mega-Pixel CS mount lens, and suites for general daily usage. ACC-MPL-2812V F, ACC-MPL-1250VF and ACC-MPL-850VF are vari-focal lenses with Auto Iris. The advantage of a varifocal lens is that its focal length and field of view (FOV) can be change manually and hence can be used more flexibly. The focal length of ACC-MPL- 2812VF is from 2.8 to 12mm (4X). You can apply its wide end FOV in locations where an overlook is needed, such as entrance, hall way, or parking lot. And you can use its tele end for some critical areas like paying-counter. The ACC-MPL- 1250VF and ACC-MPL-850VF can be used in most of projects.

With BC-5010, POE-100HD-ICR and POE-5010HD, AirLive Mega-Pixel lens can provide you a high quality video no matter at day time or night time. The Auto-Iris functional can automatically adjust the aperture of the lens and give you a stable image in an outdoor environment with changing light source.
