SuperExwave Technology: The SSC-CD77 incorporates an advanced 1/3-type CCD with SuperExwave technology that achieves extremely high sensitivity levels. This CCD imager provides a minimum illumination of 0.6 lx in color and 0.06 lx in B/W at F1.3, enabling the camera to capture clear and detailed images even under low light conditions.
High Horizontal Resolution of 540 TV lines: The high-quality CCD imager, in combination with the camera's state-of-the-art DSP technology, produces a high horizontal resolution of 540 TV lines for amazingly clear and detailed images.

Powerful 3.6x Zoom, Vari-focal Lens: The camera comes equipped with a 3.6x zoom, vari-focal lens that covers an extremely wide range of viewing angles from 100.8° (wide-angle) to 27.2° (telephoto). This feature provides installation flexibility for a number of different applications and locations.

Wall- or Ceiling-mountable/Easy Viewing-angle Adjustment: The camera can be easily wall- or ceiling-mounted, for installation flexibility. Also, in addition to the BNC video output on the rear of the camera, a secondary video output (RCA phono jack) is provided on the front of the camera. This allows installers to monitor images during installation for accurate and quick adjustment of the focus and viewing-angle.

Ball-Joint Lens Mount Technology: With the Sony patented Ball-Joint Lens Mount mechanism incorporated into the vari-focal lens of the camera, the lens can be rotated freely in any direction. Unlike conventional cameras, it takes only one action to adjust the pan and tilt angles, allowing for quick and easy adjustment of the camera's viewing angle during installation.

Ruggedized Design: The vandal-resistant camera is housed in a heavy-duty, aluminum die-cast enclosure with an impact-resistant polycarbonate dome. The camera complies with the IP66* standard, and offers additional water resistance by using a special inner conduit for the camera cables. For cold-weather outdoor applications, the optional YT-HU75 Heater Unit is available. This allows the camera to be used in severe temperatures as low as -40 °C (-40 °F).

Day/Night Function: The SNC-CD77 camera can switch from day mode (color) to night mode (B/W) by replacing its infrared-cut filter with a clear filter. Based on user presets, the camera can toggle between day mode and night mode using an external sensor or automatically in response to surrounding light conditions. The camera can simultaneously switch to night mode and provide a trigger for near-IR illuminators via its external control port, allowing it to operate even in zero lx conditions.

Backlight Compensation (BLC): Unwanted backlight can often cast a shadow in front of the subject of an image, making it appear dark to the camera. The BLC function incorporated in the camera automatically compensates for such conditions, making the subject more visible on the monitor.

Automatic Gain Control (AGC): The camera is equipped with an advanced AGC function. This automatically boosts the camera gain up to 24 dB, allowing operators monitoring the image to distinguish the subject more easily in low light conditions.

Auto Tracing White Balance (ATW)/ATW Pro: ATW is a feature that automatically adjusts the camera's white balance to adapt to changing light conditions. With ATW, the camera can compensate for a color temperature range of between 2,000 K and 10,000 K, allowing for operation under a variety of lighting conditions, including special light sources such as a sodium vapor lamp. When operating under natural light, incandescent lamps, or fluorescent light sources, ATW Pro - which compensates for a color temperature range of between 2,500 K and 6,000 K - is ideal for reproducing color images closer to what we see with our eyes.

AC Line Lock/Internal Line Lock: The camera features both an AC line lock and an internal line lock for synchronization. The AC line lock is ideal in multi-camera operations, as it synchronizes all cameras connected to the same power line. This prevents the video from rolling vertically when switching between cameras. The vertical phase can be adjusted by ±90 degrees.

Flexible Power Operation: The camera offers a choice of two types of power: 24 V AC or 12 V DC. The camera automatically adapts to whichever power source is used, making installation fast and effective.
