1/2.7" 2MP Lumii sensor, 1080p, 3-9mm F1.2 lens, ICR day/night, triple streaming: H.264/MPEG4/MJPEG, PoE, ePTZ, micro SD/SDHC card slot, vandal bubble


The NDF821 is a high performance full HD day/night camera featuring 2M image quality and intelligent network capabilities. H.264/ MPEG4/MJPEG triple streaming gives you a flexible encoding selection. As part of MESSOA MegaSmart IP products family, the NDF821 features various intelligent detection capabilitie, Smart Focus and Smart Encoding. Vari-focal lens, 3-axis and PoE features facilitate simple installation. Other supported features include built-in micro SD/SDHC card slot, video out and two-way audio. This camera is ideal for indoor situations where maximum image quality is vital, such as identifying people or specific objects.


Lumii™ Technology

Our Lumii™ technology delivers high sensitivity images without blur. Lumii™ helps increase the sensitivity and reduces video noise in low light conditions. Night images become bright and clear.

Full HD 1080p Images

Clear and detailed full HD quality images in all conditions. Unlike traditional megapixel cameras, HD offers higher resolutions and better frame rates at an international industry standard. Blurry images are reduced and individuals and objects of interest come through in perfect clarity.

Cost-saving H.264 Support

The NDF821 Network Camera supports the H.264 compression standard. H.264 greatly reduces the size of video compared to MJPEG and MPEG4 without compromising image quality. Storage and bandwidth needs are reduced. Plus, H.264 is expected to become the video standard of choice, so your camera is future proofed.

Intelligent Detection Capabilities

The NDF821 has a variety of intelligent detection functions, including motion, audio, blur and network disconnection detection. The Smart Encoding function allows users to encode a specified region of interest (ROI) with higher bit rates for better image quality. Event-specific or region-specific monitoring enables you to receive alerts upon event and saves storage cost by only recording when a specific event happens.

ONVIF Compliant

ONVIF is an open industry forum for the development of a global standard for the interface of network video products. The NDF821 supports ONVIF thus allowing interoperability between network video products regardless of brand.

Continuous No-Interruption Recording

Record JPEG images or video clips for several days with the built in microSD/SDHC card slot for up to 32 GB. Keep recording and prevent data loss even when the network goes down. Moreover, the camera's built-in FTP server enables users to view the saved files conveniently from a remote site.

Vandal Bubble

The NDF821 comes in a scratch-resistant and tough 3mm thick dome bubble, thus protecting the camera against external impacts and tampering.
