The latest addition to the Wisenet P camera series by Hanwha Techwin has two video surveillance cameras in a single housing.
The PNM-7000VD is able to capture Full HD 2MP images of adjacent areas with its two separate lenses. A 270 degree viewing angle is achieved when two 2.4mm lenses are installed, making the PNM-7000VD, which supports H.265 compression, suitable the makers say for monitoring large open spaces such car parks, shopping centres and warehouses. Depending on the required field of view, system integrators can also choose to fit 2.8, 3.6 or 6mm lenses.
Bob (H.Y.) Hwang Ph.D., Managing Director of Hanwha Techwin said: “End-users are understandably looking for maximum value from their video surveillance system. Our new two channel multi-directional camera significantly reduces the costs which would normally be associated with installing two separate cameras, perhaps either side of a building or site, without any compromise on quality. It is an excellent example of how ‘We MOVE with trust’ by introducing innovative solutions which offer real-life practical benefits.”
The PNM-7000VD comes with 150dB Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), Lens Distortion Correction and Digital Image Stabilisation to deliver optimised images in every situation. It also features privacy masking and direction, face, fog, virtual line, appear/disappear, loitering and camera tampering detection. Two SD/SDHC/SDXC memory slots enable video to be automatically recorded in the event of network disruption.
The PNM-7000VD supports H.264 and MJPEG compression, but bandwidth efficiency is improved by up to 99 per cent, it is claimed, compared to H.264 technology when H.265 is used with WiseStream II, a complementary compression technology which dynamically controls encoding, balancing quality and compression according to movement in the image.
