Hanwha Techwin America has recently introduced its new Wisenet P series multi-sensor/multi-directional cameras. Available in 8 and 20 megapixel, these cameras are reportedly ideal for applications such as parking lots, shopping mall entrances, lobbies, station concourses and airports.
“Our multi-sensor cameras have the ability to provide a wide area coverage in extreme detail with just one camera,” said Ramy Ayad, senior product manager, Hanwha Techwin America. “We exceeded the benchmark for multi-sensor camera technology by incorporating features such as 60fps, 150dB wide dynamic range, low light performance (0.0015 Lux B/W, 0.015 Lux color) and built-in video analytics.”
Hanwha’s new Wisenet P series includes the PNM-9080VQ with four individual 2 megapixel sensors for a total of 8 megapixel resolution capable of 150dB WDR and 60fps (per sensor). The series also includes the PNM-9081VQ with four individual 5 megapixel sensors that deliver 20 megapixel resolution capable of 120dB WDR and 30 fps (per sensor).
Both Wisenet P models include built-in license free advanced video analytics, backlight compensation, True Day/Night and digital image stabilization with a gyro sensor. The combination of H.265 compression and WiseStream II, a complementary compression technology that dynamically controls encoding, balancing quality and compression according to movement in the image, reportedly result in data reduction of up to 99 percent. This translates into significant savings on bandwidth, storage and cost.
Additional key features of the Wisenet P cameras include:
- 4 SD/SDHC/SDXC card slots (one for each channel), offering total storage of up to 1TB
- PoE+ (8 megapixel) or HPoE (20 megapixel) and 12VDC
- Triple codec H.265/H.264/MJPEG
- Hallway View
- Motorized varifocal lens (2.8~12mm per sensor @ 8 megapixel
- 3.6~9.4mm per sensor @20 megapixel) for widest range available in the industry in a multi-sensor camera
- IP66/K10 rated housing
