The Wisenet XNP-6550RH 55x IR PTZ dome camera has been selected as a finalist of the Video Security Systems (VSS) category of the GIT SECURITY Awards.
A jury comprising representatives of industry associations, system integrators and end-users, have decided on a shortlist of products for each of six award categories, with readers of GIT SECURITY magazine having the opportunity to vote online at www.security-award.com for their preferred choices until 23rd August, 2019.
With a 55x optical zoom, a Gyro sensor for accurate stabilisation in windy conditions, optical ‘Defog’ and built-in IR LEDs to capture high definition images at night at a distance of up to 500 metres, the Wisenet XNP-6550RH can surely lay claims to have set a new standard for PTZ cameras designed for perimeter protection and large open area applications.
The optical Defog feature built into the Wisenet XNP-6550RH is particularly impressive. Unique to Hanwha Techwin, Defog involves the use of an optical low pass filter which is able to accept a higher light range in front of the camera’s image sensor, in order to reduce the influence of fog.
“We are delighted that the experts who sat on the GIT SECURITY jury have appreciated the advantages that this camera can bring to a video surveillance system which needs to operate in challenging conditions,” said Uri Guterman, Head of Product & Marketing for Hanwha Techwin Europe. “The nomination further justifies our efforts to pack the Wisenet XNP-6550RH with features needed by security personnel to detect and observe suspicious activity over long distances in airports, car parks, industrial estates, stadia and city centre type environments.
