Hikvision, provider of innovative video surveillance solutions, has added an ultra HD 32 MP panoramic camera to its PanoVu camera range.
The new DS-2CD6984G0-IH(S)(AC) 32 MP PanoVu Series Panoramic Dome Camera uses four ½ inch Progressive Scan CMOS sensors to deliver a true 180-degree horizontal panorama, as well as a vertical field of view of 95 degrees. The four video images are stitched together by the camera itself, which intelligently outputs a single, seamless panoramic image.
Frank Zhang, General Manager of the International Product Marketing Department at Hikvision said, “we are very excited to add this state-of-the-art high definition camera to the PanoVu family. Organisations with large outdoor areas are continually looking for innovative ways to monitor and protect their premises. Our 32 MP camera gives them some of the most remarkable panoramic and HD monitoring features they’ll find on the market.”
The camera offers impressive HD, with a maximum resolution of 8160 × 3616 pixels. Its 32 MP image resolution at 30 fps ensures a smooth video image preview and playback. Engineered with low illumination capability and four embedded infra-red LEDs, the DS-2CD6984G0-IH(S)(AC) can continue to deliver HD panoramic video in low-light environments and even under 0 lux conditions, up to 20 metres.
The camera also has a range of display modes to suit user needs. In addition to the standard 32 MP panorama view, users can choose to output the panoramic image in 8 MP resolution to fit into a corresponding network video recorder. The camera can also deliver four, 8 MP standalone images from each lens, or four images in divided panorama view.
Thanks to its broad field of view, the DS-2CD6984G0-IH(S)(AC) is ideal for large, open areas such as stadiums, plazas, entertainment venues and industrial facilities. Just one camera can cover an area that previously required multiple cameras, reducing IP channels. This also makes installation and configuration much easier, faster and potentially more cost-effective.
