Hanwha Techwin has added to its Wisenet P series with the ultra high definition PNM-9320VQP. With four sensors and a separate integral PTZ camera, is designed for detecting and tracking objects over wide areas.
The option of exchangeable 2 and 5 megapixel lens modules enables the camera sensors built into the H.265 Wisenet PNM-9320VQP to work together to capture 360 degree images of up to 20 megapixel resolution. The pan and tilt’s 2 megapixel 32x PTZ camera element is automatically triggered to zoom in and track a moving object or move to a user-configured pre-set position, when the motion detection function of the multi-directional camera detects activity.
Uri Guterman, Head of Product and Marketing for Hanwha Techwin Europe, said: “By placing a PTZ camera at the centre of the PNM-9320VQP we are able to provide a highly affordable and efficient solution for city and wide area surveillance applications such as car parks, shopping centres and warehouses. As well as installation and maintenance costs being significantly lower, end-users are able to avoid incurring the higher capital costs of using five separate cameras to cover an area and achieve the same level of functionality.”
The PTZ camera offers Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), which performs at up to 150dB to produce images in scenes that simultaneously contain very bright and very dark areas, as do the 2 megapixel lens modules. The 5 megapixel lens module options come with 120dB WDR.
The IK10 vandal and IP66 weather resistant PNM-9320VQP comes with a gyro sensor which offer stabilisation when a camera is disturbed by wind or vibrations, resulting in more stable images. The product features include five built-in SD card slots to help keep data safe in the event of network disruption, De-fog makes corrections to blurry images which are captured in foggy conditions; and Lens Distortion Correction (LDC) compensates for the image distortion that can occur with wide angle lenses.
The multi-streaming PNM-9320VQP supports H.264, H.265 and MJPEG compression. Bandwidth efficiency is improved by up to 99 per cent it is claimed compared to H.264 compression when H.265 is used with WiseStream II, a complementary compression technology which controls encoding, balancing quality and compression according to movement in the image,
Hanwha Techwin has also just introduced the Wisenet PNM-9000VQ multi-directional camera. It has four exchangeable lens modules that together capture 360 degree images of up to 20 megapixel resolution.That product shares many of the PNM-9320VQP’s features, but does not have a built-in PTZ camera.
