Dahua Technology USA showed a new line of multi-sensor IP cameras at this year’s ISC West exhibition in Las Vegas. Three multi-sensor options provide better image resolution, application customiaation and improved total cost of ownership for the consumer (TCO), the product company says.
A panoramic multi-sensor bullet camera (DH-IPC-PF83230N-A180) will house four 8MP sensors with 4.5mm lenses. Providing the same coverage that would typically be provided by multiple standard cameras in the same setting, the multi-sensor minimises maintenance, cabling and support costs, as well as installation time, the makers say. The camera delivers a single stitched 180-degree panoramic view and can display four HD views at once. These cameras are the manufacturer says suited for education, retail and commercial and residential verticals.
The second multi-sensor camera (DH-IPC-PDBW5831N-B360) offers four 2MP sensors, each with a vari-focal 3-8mm motorized lens. This multi-sensor camera allow the four sensors to be independently positioned anywhere on the track for enhanced customization and requires only one Ethernet and one power supply cable, thus minimizing maintenance, cabling, support costs, and installation time. The IPC-PDBW5831N-B360 is an ideal solution for casinos, banks, retail spaces, and commercial/residential areas where multiple scenes must be monitored simultaneously.
A third multi-sensor camera (DH-IPC-HDBW4231FN-E2) features dual low-light 2MP sensors each with a 2.8mm lens and integrated Smart IR up to 65ft (20m). This camera is for a long hallway, corridor or the entrance to a building for capturing details from both directions. The camera allows the end user to minimise maintenance, cabling, and support costs, as well as installation time and is for locations where a customised solution is needed for the safety of at-risk occupants, such as educational, prisons, commercial and residential verticals.
Most of the new multi-sensor cameras offer True Wide Dynamic Range (120 dB) (all except for PF83230), a True Day/Night IR Cut Filter, H.265 and H.264 dual codecs, and built-in Intelligent Video System (IVS) analytics (all except for PF83230), all enclosed by an IP67-rated weather-resistant housing.
Jennifer Hackenburg, senior product manager at Dahua Technology USA, said: “Dahua Technology continues to strive to identify customer challenges and develop new technology that bring these solutions to the US market. Our expanding line of multi-sensor cameras continue the Dahua Technology tradition of providing high performance, high-value solutions the market is looking for.”
