Low quality surveillance RFPs are quite a problem. Often the specs simply make no sense, sometimes because they are cut and pasted from a variety of sources, creating an impossible request.
A member shared his frustrations recently with me about this specification:
1- The cameras use an image sensor no less than (CCD Super HAD sensor)
2- 24hr day and night
3- IP67 waterproof housing
4-minimum illumination (0.005 Lux)
5-minimum distance for IR 35 meters
6-no less than 2 megapixel cameras
7-digital zoom 10x optical zoom 12x
8-lens length 2.8 to 16 mm.
It looks like they want a bullet camera with integrated optical zoom, super long range IR that's multi-megapixel and uses a CCD. First, I have no idea why they require a CCD. Second, who makes a 2MP CCD surveillance camera?
Is this a real camera or a frankenstein spec?
