Hanwha Techwin has added to its Wisenet Q series with the introduction of 2 and 5 megapixel box cameras. The 2 megapixel Wisenet QNB-6002 supersedes the Wisenet QNB-6000, whilst the 5 megapixel Wisenet QNB-8002 is a new addition to the camera series.
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 features of the new cameras include:
- 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 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 reportedly improved by up to 99% compared to current H.264 technology when WiseStream II is combined with H.265 compression.
- 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.
- Power over Ethernet (PoE) support, negating the need to run separate cabling and install a power supply at each camera location.
