1/2.8" 2MP Lumii sensor, 240X (20X optical), f:4.7~94mm, 1080p, H.264, ICR day/night, WDR, PoE+, PTZ, microSD/SDHC card slot, IK10, IP67


The NIC990 is designed to provide crystal-clear 16:9 full HD video for outdoor applications in both day and night. With the support of H.264 codec, the NIC990 offers high quality images with little bandwidth and storage consumption. With a 20X optical zoom lens and powerful pan, tilt and zoom capabilities, it guarantees complete coverage of every angle. It is ideal for applications where operators need to monitor wide area and track distant objects, such as seaports, railway stations or public safety surveillance.


Full HD 1080p Image

Clear and detailed full HD quality images in all conditions. Unlike traditional megapixel cameras, full 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.

Mechanical (ICR) Day/Night

Featuring IR Cut Filter Removable (ICR) function, the camera uses a mechanical way to detect changes in lighting conditions and then switches between color and B/W modes. It provides perfect color images at day time and crisp monochrome images at night or very dark environment.

Wide Dynamic Range

Wide dynamic range optimizes an image to ensure that dark areas are more visible while retaining detail in bright areas. WDR is ideal for scenes where objects are difficult to recognize due to severe backlight or shadows.

Cost-saving H.264 Support

The NIC990 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.

PoE+ Facilitates Easy Installation

Built in support for Power Over Ethernet reduces cost and adds flexibility to the camera. A single cable connection is used to view, power, and control the camera. Installation cost are reduced since there is no need for separate cables.

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.

Complete Vandal-resistance

The camera is IK10-rated impact-resistant up to 20 Joules of impact. It protects the camera against extreme vandalism, making it perfect for outdoor surveillance.
