mini-cameras datasheet


These cameras come with a pin-hole lens ideal for covert surveillance.
The mini pin-hole lens supplied as standard is a wide angle 3.6 mm conic lens, but any DSE pin-hole lens can be used with these cameras. In the lens page there are several pin-hole lenses with different focal length.

mini pin-hole cameraDSE analog mini cameras are specifically designed for discreet surveillance. Not much larger than a coin, they can be installed inside very small objects.
The pin-hole lens of these  cameras can film through a tiny hole (just 1 mm diameter), so it's ideal for covert application.
These mini-cameras can be connected to all DSE DVR to build-up invisible CCTV systems for discrete surveillance.


Mini size
What makes these cameras unique in our product range is the very small size. Our mini casing is just a little bit bigger than a coin: only 35x35x20 mm, including the lens.
In spite of the small size, these cameras are 100% made of metal and do not suffer overheating.
All cameras come with removable mounting bracket.

AHD cameras - Analog HD

Analog HD - AHD
AHD technology is the latest development in the analog CCTV industry and is supported by almost all models in this range.
Launched in May 2014 by Nextchip, worldwide leader in DSP for CCTV cameras, AHD technology brings analog cameras up to 1MP (HD720P 1280x720), 2MP (FULL HD 1080P 1920x1080), 3MP (2048x1536) e 4MP (2560x1440) video resolution. Before AHD, megapixel resolution was only possible using digital cameras.
Connected to latest generation AHD DVR, these cameras provide megapixel resolution, with no latency, still being low cost and easy to install as standard analog cameras.
Like any analog cameras, AHD cameras can be wired by normal coaxial or twisted pair cables up to several hundreds meters.
Our range of AHD cameras includes cameras from 1 to 4 megapixel.

4 in 1 cameras
Besides AHD, there are other high definition analog standards available on the market. The most popular are TVI and CVI.
In order to provide the maximum compatibility with all DVR, many of these cameras are able to support different standards.
So called, 4 in 1 cameras, support all high definition formats: AHD, CVI, TVI as well as traditional CVBS video. These cameras are virtually compatible to every DVR you may have. In 4 in 1 cameras you can select the video format by the OSD switch which is placed along the camera cable.
Unlike most other vendors, we use original 4 in 1 chip from Nextchip instead of low cost Chinese imitations that provides much lower video quality.

Suitable for CVBS traditional analog systems
All cameras in this range are able to produce a composite video output (CVBS) suitable to any old D1/960H DVR or any TV set.
In CVBS mode, our AHD cameras provide lower resolution, but still comparable to the best 1000 TVL analog cameras.

Image sensors
Sony exmor cmos
One of the most critical factors which is making the difference among the cameras is the image sensor.
CCD sensors have been for years the primary choice for CCTV cameras in consequence of their superior pixel sensitivity. In recent times, CMOS technology took over, being more suitable to high megapixel resolution.
DSE chose SONY EXMOR CMOS sensors for all AHD cameras.
Sony Exmor is the most expansive sensor on the market but provides superior performance especially in critical light conditions.
The price of a CCTV camera with Sony Exmor sensor could be even twice the price of a similar camera with lower profile sensor.  Keep this in mind while comparing this range with cheaper alternative solutions.

High sensitivity in low light
Hidden cameras are not suitable for infrared illuminators because this kind of equipment is too difficult to hide. This is why these cameras come with very high low light sensitivity down to 0.005 lux.

The pin-hole lens
All these cameras come with a special type of lens for concealed use called "pin-hole lens. This type of lens is able to film through a 1 mm hole, and is therefore perfect to make cameras which are completely invisible even on close inspection.button pin-hole
Cameras are supplied with 3.6 mm pin-hole lens, which offers a wide-angle view able to fully cover a small-medium area. In all models, except RE-TCC3SN, the lens can be replaced with any of the other DSE pin-hole lenses. Our pin-hole range includes models with 6.2 mm focal length, best for middle range view, with and without hiding elements (screw, button).

Audio minicameras with audio
All CVBS mini cams have a built-in high sensitivity microphone for audio.
The high resolution AHD models, come without microphone. In this case, if audio is required, an additional microphones like RE-CM2, can be used.

Mounting bracket
All cameras come with a mini mounting bracket than can be used for installing the camera by screws. In case it is not required by your application, this bracket can be easily removed.

Like all analog cameras, these cameras can be connected by wires to a video-recorder (DVR).
A 50 cm. cable with DC Plug and BNC female video connector, comes out from the back side of the camera.
A 220VAC/12VDC power adaptor can be connected to the DC plug to power up the camera. Min 1000mA, fully regulated, power adaptor is required. Should you prefer to provide the power from a central point you can order a power supply unit in metal casing.
Video signal must be hard-wired to DVR using RG59 or RG179 coaxial cable (see cables). Coaxial cable must be terminated with BNC connectors. Alternatively, the video signal can also be wired using a twisted pair installing on both ends two balun converters.
AHD cameras connects exactly as all other analog cameras, but provide HD resolution only with AHD DVR.
4 in1 camera can be connected also to CVI and TVI DVR.
For further information, have a look at the DSE tutorials which include several useful lessons about how to wire a CCTV system.
