Hanwha Techwin has expanded its Wisenet Q camera series with the introduction of 24 new H.265 models.
The new additions include 2 and 5 megapixel bullet cameras, domes and vandal resistant domes, with integrators able to choose from models supplied with fixed or motorised varifocal lenses. All are true day/night cameras and feature Lens Distortion Correction (LDC). They also benefit from enhanced Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) at up to 120dB.
The 5 megapixel models are new to the Wisenet Q series, whilst the 2 megapixel bullet cameras and domes supersede older models.
The new models are all equipped as standard with enhanced Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA), such as defocus and tampering detection, as well as directional, intrusion, motion and enter/exit detection, whilst a new open platform chipset provides the opportunity for some third party applications to run onboard the cameras.
The cameras support multiple streaming with the choice of H.265, H.264 or MJPEG compression. Their bandwidth friendly credentials are 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 improved compared to current H.264 technology when WiseStream II is combined with H.265 compression. As such, WiseStream II reduces the total cost of ownership of a video surveillance system by minimising the storage and bandwidth requirements of high definition cameras.
