Hanwha Techwin has added a 7.3 megapixel (MP) 180 degree panoramic camera its Samsung Wisenet P series. Designed for monitoring large open areas with just one camera, the PNM-9020V comes with multi-sensors which enable it to capture seamlessly stitched 180 degree images. Four 2MP images with 3.6mm lenses produce the 180° composite images. A synchronised alignment lever, in the centre of the camera, raises and lowers the sensors in unison to aid set up.
Tim Biddulph, Head of Product Management for Hanwha Techwin Europe, said: “The PNM-9020V’s high definition and panoramic capabilities means end-users can achieve an exceptionally high return on investment (ROI), as it can perform the work of three or four standard HD cameras and so deliver significant savings on camera purchasing and installation costs.”
Besides digital pan, tilt and zoom (PTZ), the PNM-9020V, which is IP66 and IK10 rated for vandal-resistance and outdoor use on the harshest sites, shares many of the features with the four other models in the Wisenet P series. These include Digital Auto Tracking, True Wide Dynamic Range, and Lens Distortion Correction to deliver optimised images in every situation. Also provided is bi-directional audio support, privacy masking, a 12VDC,PoE capability and an SD card slot to ensure that video is automatically recorded in the event of network disruption.
Video analytics such as heat map, virtual line, enter/exit and appear/disappear come as standard, while the open platform DSP chipset built into PNM-9020V lets end-users run edge-based video analytics. The products feature WiseStream, a complementary compression technology which controls encoding, balancing quality and compression according to movement in the image. Bandwidth efficiency is improved by up to 75pc the makers say compared to current H.264 compression, when WiseStream is combined with H.265 compression. Visit www.hanwha-security.eu.
