KPC Camera Features Explained

Our massive range of KPC Cameras come in black & white or colour, different TVLs, different dimensions and different styles to suit every job. Many cameras come with additional features such as DIS, BLC, DNR or DSS. If you've ever wonderered exactly what those terms mean, we've explained them for you below.

Digital Image Stabilization (DIS) uses the motion detection core to stabilize the image from shaking due to external vibrations like oscillation and wind.


Backlight Compensation (BLC) technology works by reducing the dynamic range of the entire image, while retaining the overall contrast. By compensating for unbalanced in a scene, detail is restored throughout the field of view so as to provide better visibility to identify an object of interest.


Digital Noise Reduction (DNR) technology is crucial for surveillance camera. 3DNR works by analyzing the differences between successive frames in order to adjust pixels and improve. 3DNR additionally analyzes the differences between successive frames in order to adjust pixels and improve fidelity. 3DNR generally produces greater reduction in noise than does 2DNR, but with the drawback of tending to create motion blur on moving objects in the field of a view.


Digital Noise Reduction (DNR) technology is crucial for surveillance camera. 2DNR works by analyzing individual frames of video, identifying algorithmically and correcting those pixels that likely represent noise.


Digital Slow Shutter (DSS) technology enhances the low light performance of a camera, producing outstanding images in low light conditions. DSS slows the picture frame rate and increases the camera’s sensitivity.


WDR technology helps to get detailed information in harsh lighting, by capturing alternate frames using different exposure times. The frame with longer exposure time captures details in darker parts of the scene, while the frame with shorter exposure time captures the brighter areas. The camera combines the optimal portions of these two complementary frames to produce the most detailed image possible.


Ingress Protection (IP) rating defines protection against solid objects and liquid on a 0-6 and 0-8 scale.

IP65 - Dust tight and protected against water projected from a nozzle.

IP66 - Dust tight and protected against heavy seas or powerful jets of water.

IP67 - Dust tight and protected against immersion.

IP68 - Dust tight and protected against complete, continuous submersion in water.

Optical Zoom

In some surveillance occasions, zoom ratio is important. The optical zoom is True Zoom, discriminated from digital zoom, which take place in image processing. Using optical zoom, you can see designated area enlarged without losing any quality.


True Day/Night feature can be used for precise colour reproduction. With built-in dual filter system, as known as Infrared Cut filter Removal (ICR) mechanism, the infrared cut filter can be used at day time, or in bright lighting conditions, to provide enhanced image in full-colour. At night time, or in harsh lighting conditions, it will be removed for greater light sensitivity in monochrome mode.
