Hanwha Techwin has further broadened its Wisenet P series with the introduction of a 7.3 megapixel 180° panoramic camera.
Designed for monitoring large open areas with just one camera, the PNM-9020V is equipped with multi-sensors which enable it to capture superb quality seamlessly stitched 180° images. Four 2MP images with 3.6mm lenses work in harmony to produce the 180° composite images. This is achieved with the help of a synchronised alignment lever located in the centre of the camera which raises and lowers the sensors in unison to facilitate easy set up.
“The PNM-9020V’s high definition and panoramic capabilities means end-users can achieve an exceptionally high return on investment (ROI), as it can perform the work of three or four standard HD cameras and so deliver significant savings on camera purchasing and installation costs,” said Tim Biddulph, Head of Product Management for Hanwha Techwin Europe.
In addition to being equipped with digital PTZ, the PNM-9020V, which is IP66 and IK10 rated for vandal-resistance and outdoor use in the harshest environments, shares many of the innovative, practical features with the four other models in the Wisenet P series. These include Digital Auto Tracking, True Wide Dynamic Range, and Lens Distortion Correction to deliver optimised images in every situation. Also provided is bi-directional audio support, privacy masking, a 12VDC,PoE capability and an SD card slot to ensure that video is automatically recorded in the event of network disruption.
Video analytics such as heat map, virtual line, enter/exit and appear/disappear are provided as standard, whilst the power of the open platform DSP chipset built into PNM-9020V provides end-users with the flexibility to run edge-based video analytics which matches their individual requirements.
Unique WiseStream Technology
Completing the long list of innovative features built into the PNM-9020V is WiseStream, a complementary compression technology which dynamically controls encoding, balancing quality and compression according to movement in the image. Bandwidth efficiency is improved by up to 75% compared to current H.264 technology when WiseStream is combined with H.265 compression. This ensures that Hanwha Techwin Europe’s new Wisenet P series is one of the most bandwidth friendly camera ranges available.
