Hanwha Techwin adds 12 megapixel fisheye cameras

Chertsey, Surrey (UK)

Both cameras have on-board dewarping and offer a variety of alternative viewing modes, including single panorama, double panorama and quad views.

The Wisenet XNF-9010RV and XNF-9010RVM 12 megapixel fisheye cameras are the latest additions to the range of Wisenet X cameras equipped with Hanwha Techwin’s proprietary Wisenet7 chipset.

The Wisenet7 chipset features an impressive list of technologies designed to significantly improve the cyber security credentials of Wisenet cameras, and is UL Cybersecurity Assurance Program (UL CAP) certificated. It therefore enables Hanwha Techwin to provide users with peace of mind in knowing their confidential data will be kept safe from hackers.

In addition to meeting UL certification standards for IP network video surveillance solutions in respect of cyber security, the feature-rich Wisenet7 also ensures the two new fisheye cameras, which have built in IR illumination, are able to capture superb quality images, regardless of the lighting conditions. A new ‘extreme’ wide dynamic range (WDR) feature, for example, utilises new local contrast enhancement and scene analysis technologies to capture ultra-clear images from scenes containing a challenging mix of bright and dark areas.

The two cameras share a long list of other real-life practical features, with the mobile XNF-9010RVM having the addition of an M12 connector. Built to withstand vibrations, the EN50155 certificated XNF-9010RVM is designed to offer a robust solution for monitoring activity on buses, trains, trucks and other forms of transport.

Both cameras have on-board dewarping and offer a variety of alternative viewing modes, including single panorama, double panorama and quad views.

A digital PTZ allows users to electronically pan, tilt and zoom in on specific areas for a more detailed view, whilst at the same time, continuing to monitor the whole 360⁰ view. It also offers privacy masking, a 12VDC and PoE capability. In the event of network disruption, video is automatically recorded to on-board SDXC storage to ensure that potential video evidence is not lost.

In addition to providing a powerful tool to deter and detect criminal activity, the two cameras are equipped with specialist business intelligence applications which enable users to achieve so much more from their video surveillance systems. Collectively, the heatmap, people counting and queue management video analytics are able to assist businesses, and the retail sector in particular, with identifying opportunities to improve productivity, gain a greater understanding of customer behaviour and improve the customer experience.

The two new cameras support H.265, H.264 and MJPEG compression formats, as well as Wisestream II, 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, which is unique to Wisenet cameras, is combined with H.265 compression.

“A single fish-eye camera will quite often offer the most efficient and cost-effective way of monitoring a large area, and particularly so when a number of standard cameras might normally be required to avoid any blind spots. They also offer a compact option for environments where aesthetics or space limitations might be an issue,” said Uri Guterman, Head of Product & Marketing for Hanwha Techwin Europe.

“Whilst there is no shortage of fish-eye cameras on the market, the cyber security credentials and image enhancing features of the XNF-9010RV and XNF-9010RVM, ensures they stand out from the crowd.”
