The C20-CH Series is Pelco's general-purpose digital color CCD camera.  It is designed for installations with fixed lighting conditions.  Its full features insure that images are clear and crisp at all times under consistent light.  The camera's size, combined with its numerous features, makes it the ideal camera for most applications.

The C20-CH Series is an ultra-high-resolution digital camera with 650 TV lines of resolution and 0.25 lux minimum illumination.  Camera
features include autosensing power (24 VAC or 12 VDC with internal synchronization), and automatic gain control (AGC).

The C20-CH Series includes automatic white balance (AWB) for difficult lighting situations, digital noise reduction for clearer image quality, and backlight compensation (BLC) that adjusts the picture to prevent objects from appearing dark due to a strong backlight.

The C20-CH Series also features built-in analytical capabilities including privacy zones, motion detection, and camera titles.  These features are easily set using the on-screen menus.

The convenient on-screen menu contains features that are not typically found in a general purpose camera including area masking, titling, pixel correction, and preset lighting profiles.

The C20-CH Series is quick and easy to install.  The camera is also featured in Pelco's DomePak® and ImagePak® fixed camera dome/enclosure packages.  The optional (sold separately) C10-UM wall/ceiling/rail mount kit offers easy installation in many non-enclosure applications, for all models.

The C20-CH Series has a standard CS lens mount and can be used with fixed, manual, or auto iris (DC drive) lenses.  The iris is controlled through a standard 4-pin square connector that is included on all Pelco auto iris lenses.
