Dahua Technology, a video-centric smart IoT solution and service provider, announces the addition of two new multi-sensor cameras to its IP product line.

The latest addition to Dahua Technology’s multi-sensor family is the Multi-flex (DH-IPC-PDBW5831N-B360). The 4x2MP Multi-sensor Camera was built for flexibility and evolving customer change-requirements. The unique, future-proof platform of the Multi-flex provides organisations of all sizes the ability to deploy a security system that truly matches their video surveillance needs now; and again if requirements change in the future.

Integrated IR illuminators

The Multi-flex offers Enhanced Starlight Technology so that images remain in colour for a longer period of time

The camera offers advanced streaming capabilities and are designed on an efficient H.265 encoding platform capable of delivering high quality video without straining the network. With the Dahua Smart H.264+ / H.265+ optimised codec, a higher savings on bandwidth and storage is realised.

With its ground-breaking flexibility to simultaneously move each sensor module around the camera’s internal track for 180-, 270-, or 360-degree fields of view, and its integrated IR illuminators, at up to 98 feet (30 meters), the Multi-flex can be configured to minimise blind spots for improved situational awareness. Regardless of the time of day, this camera is ideal for applications with challenging lighting conditions. The Multi-flex offers Enhanced Starlight Technology so that images remain in colour for a longer period of time (0.005 lux).

Changing lighting conditions

The camera combines a true day/night mechanical IR cut filter for high quality images in environments with changing lighting conditions. For applications with bright or over saturated lighting, true wide dynamic range delivers up to 120 dB at full resolution on channel 1 and digital wide dynamic range on channels 2-4. Power can be supplied via a single Power-over-Ethernet compliant network cable (PoE+) or with power from a 24V AC, 3 A power supply.

The Multi-flex’s name refers to the sheer amount of flexibility it gives to the end-user,” Jennifer Hackenburg, Senior Product Marketing Manager, noted. “Dahua Technology built this high-performing camera to make security solutions more flexible, easier to use, and more cost-efficient.”

Dual-sensor dome camera

Dahua Technology’s new Dual-Sensor Dome Camera (DH-IPC-HDBW4231FN-E2-M) functions as two individual cameras in one compact indoor/outdoor rated housing. The camera has two independent, 2MP, STARVIS CMOS sensors with dual-stream encoding (per sensor) and the Dahua Intelligent Video System (IVS) analytics, including facial detection.

Power can be supplied via a single Power-over-Ethernet compliant network cable (PoE) or with power from a 12 VDC power supply

Additional highlights include IR distance of up to 66 feet (20 meters), Basic Starlight Technology for scenes with low-light conditions (0.009 lux), and True Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) at 120 dB for challenging direct sunlight or glare. Power can be supplied via a single Power-over-Ethernet compliant network cable (PoE) or with power from a 12 VDC power supply.

Configure multiple cameras

Multi-sensor cameras are designed to streamline an application for higher efficiency, less maintenance and a lower total cost of ownership,” Hackenburg explained. “Multi-sensors have a pleasing aesthetic due to their compact housing, and there’s less clutter because there’s no need to install multiple-single sensor cameras.”

Dahua Technology’s Multi-flex and Dual-Sensor offer an interface that allows for an intuitive, fast, and easy configuration; while the Smart PSS tool enables users to quickly configure multiple cameras at one time. Both cameras are ONVIF compliant, providing interoperability between network video products regardless of manufacturer. Additionally, only one VMS license is required, saving even more on your investment. See Dahua Technology’s new multi-sensors, along with a wealth of other innovative video surveillance solutions, at booth #14039 at ISC West, April 10-12, in Las Vegas.
