Star-Light MPA™ Technology

Megapixel Analog Resolution with the Power of Star-Light™ Super Low Light Technology.

The new Star-Light™ MPA Cameras offer highest analog resolution with a 1.3MP CMOS sensor allowing the camera to receive and process images in high resolution (up to 820TVL) and digitally zoom with no pixelation. The cameras also offer Intelligent Motion Detection, Automatic Digital Zoom and motion tracing, True Day & Night, 3D Digital Noise Reduction, De-Fog, remote camera control via RS-485/ UTC and alarm output. The Star-Light MPA™ is an intelligent solution for any application.

Technology Main Features:

1.3 Active Megapixels = 800 TVL Resolution

Digital Watchdog’s Star-Light MPA technology delivers the ultimate analog resolution at a reduced total implementation cost by utilizing a 1/3 Megapixel Sony CMOS Sensor. By utilizing a megapixel sensor, the imager captures and processes the Field of View (FoV) in a megapixel resolution, allowing the camera to output up to 800 TV Line images in color and 820 TV Lines in B/W.


Digital Zoom with no Detail Loss & Motion Detection

The cameras support quick digital zoom without any detail loss. Thanks to the analog megapixel technology, the camera is able to preserve the same number of pixels even in digital zoom, offering the clearest details even in zoom mode.

The cameras offer four separate motion detection zones that can be individually configured based on the camera’s view. When motion is detected, the camera can zoom into the motion area, trace and predict the motion’s movement, or trigger an alarm output.

1.3 Active Megapixels with Intelligent Motion Detection

De-Fog™ Image Enhancement

Enables the camera to function and produce clear image even in scenes obscured by fog or weather conditions. When weather conditions such as fog or smog interfere with the camera’s FoV, you can enable the de-fog image enhancement feature. By utilizing a special enhancement algorithms, the camera can visibly improve its image and offer details and clarity in harsh weather conditions.

HME (Highlight Masking Exposure)

The HME technology detects and masks any strong spots of light to produce a clear image of any environment. HME is particularly effective for reading license plates of cars in streets or parking lots at night.



3D DNR (Digital Noise Reduction)

The 3D-DNR technology provides clearer images using unique algorithms designed to reduce video noise. It cleans electronic noise signals that reduce the clarity of the image and effect motion detection settings with various recording technology.



True Day/ Night with IR Cut Filter (Supported Models Only)

To get a better image at night, the camera turns on IR cut filter glass when it detects a specific color data in the environment. When this occurs, the image will turn from Color to Black-and-White and vice-versa.


Programmable Privacy Zones

Masks overly exposed light to produce a true video image in any environment.



Smart IR

The breakdown of the video image into five (5) zones allows for an even distribution of the IR, which prevents excessive illumination of near-field reflective objects.
