HCU484 Camera

Ultra Wide Dynamic Color Camera


Honeywell’s HCU484 is the ideal camera for environments with high contrast and changing light conditions. Using Digital Pixel System® (DPS) Capture Technology, images are converted from analog to a digital format within each pixel immediately after the image is captured. Even in high contrast lighting conditions, the HCU484 delivers higher quality images, significantly better dynamic range (120 dB max), and higher frame rates than conventional CCD cameras.

While conventional cameras record every pixel in a frame with the same exposure time, the HCU484 records each of the 388,800 pixels at its own optimum exposure time. This results in correct color rendering and capturing details in all applications including high contrast scenes with shadows and glare. The Digital Pixel System® Capture Technology delivers crisp, color-saturated high resolution images without the presence of blooming or smearing, in both moving and still pictures.

The HCU484 offers convenient remote control of the on-screen menus via compatible DVRs and keyboards with Diamond control protocol, facilitating setup and camera maintenance. Seven wide dynamic presets allow quick and easy setup of the camera for various applications such as ATM machines, loading docks, lobbies, and scenes with intense glare from spotlights or car headlights. The day/night mode combined with digital slow shutter offers excellent nighttime performance while maintaining the wide dynamic capabilities of the imager.

Market Opportunities
The HCU484 is a surveillance solution designed for object recognition that is required in locations where high contrast and variable light conditions exist. Setup is quick and easy and can be customized with on-screen displays and preset modes. This provides optimum performance for both indoor and outdoor applications including lobbies, atriums, vestibules, gated entrances, foyers, loading docks, and driveways.
