Vivotek’s VC8101 is a high-performance Full-HD split-type camera system. Its discreet design, rich functionality and ability to be flexibly integrated into even the tightest spaces, make this camera ideal for indoor or covert surveillance of ATMs, banks, stores and offices.

The VC8101 features a separate camera unit and video core design, enabling the tiny camera unit (with 5-meter long cable) to be easily and flexibly installed into any decoration or interior design, thus preserving stylish appearances while dramatically saving on installation time and cost.

The VC8101 can support one camera unit and is designed to work in perfect harmony with a choice of two 2-megapixel WDR camera units: the CU8161-H pinhole type, and the CU8163-H fisheye type for 180° Panoramic View. Both camera units incorporate a number of advanced features found in Vivotek cameras, including WDR Pro, Smart Stream II technology, 3DNR, 802.3af compliant PoE, on-board storage, and Vivotek’s 32-channel recording software. All of these features and the unique design allow the camera units to capture clear images in high-contrast scenes, and to make this camera system the best possible solution for indoor surveillance when discretion is important.

Discreet Appearance

The smaller camera form factor enabled by the split core/camera design also allows a less obtrusive appearance where there are aesthetic concerns or to reduce the risk of opportunistic tampering or vandalism.

Flexible Selection for Different Scenarios

With a choice of two 2-megapixel WDR camera units: the CU8161-H pinhole type, and the CU8163-H fisheye type for 180° Panoramic View, the VC8101 provides unprecedented flexibility. The split-type camera system can be used to monitor spaces such as ATM, elevators, a single large space, or to provide different types of views, among other possible usage scenarios.

Greater Coverage with Simplified Installation

The camera unit that can be connected to the core unit can be positioned up to 5 meters away, enabling the tiny camera unit to be easily and flexibly installed into any decoration or interior design.

Easier Maintenance and Upgrades

The modular design of the VC8101 makes removing individual camera units for maintenance or replacement extremely easy. Moreover, upgrades can also be easily accomplished, since they need only involve swapping out of a camera unit and not replacement of the entire system.
