Hanwha Techwin has further strengthened its Wisenet Q series with the introduction of two and five megapixel box cameras.
The two H.265 cameras are equipped with an Open Platform chipset which provides the opportunity for end users to benefit from selected edge-based specialist applications developed by Hanwha Techwin’s technology partners. The cameras also feature a suite of Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA), which includes Tampering, Directional Detection, Defocus Detection, Virtual Line, Enter/Exit and Motion Detection.
Other key features of the new box cameras include the following:
- Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), which performs at up to 120dB to produce clear images from scenes containing a challenging mix of bright and dark areas.
- Smart Video Compression: A choice of H.265, H.264 or MJPEG compression, with the cameras’ bandwidth friendly credentials enhanced by WiseStream II, a complementary compression technology which dynamically controls encoding, balancing quality and compression, according to movement in the image. Bandwidth efficiency is improved by up to 99% compared to current H.264 technology when WiseStream II is combined with H.265 compression. As such, WiseStream II reduces the total cost of ownership of a video surveillance system by minimising the storage and bandwidth requirements of high definition cameras.
- An SD/SDHC/SDXC memory slot which allows up to 128GB of video or data to be stored at the edge should there be disruption to the network. Video evidence, which might have been potentially lost, can therefore be retrieved when the network connection has been restored.
- Power over Ethernet (PoE) support. This saves time and reduces installations costs, as it negates the need to run separate cabling and install a power supply at each camera location.
“As is the case with all affordable Wisenet Q series cameras, there has been no compromise on the feature set or build quality of these new cameras,” said Uri Guterman, Head of Product & Marketing for Hanwha Techwin Europe. “They have been introduced in response to feedback from customers who wish to continue to enjoy the benefits of working with a trusted brand but require a keenly priced option for video surveillance applications which require a high number of cameras.”
