Dahua Technology HAC-PFW3601-A180 3X2MP multi-sensor panoramic HDCVI IR-bullet camera

Product Profile

Dahua’s multi-sensor Starlight panoramic HDCVI camera provides added flexibility for wide-area video surveillance. Three 2MP sensors work in tandem to create a comprehensive 180-degree 4K image with enhanced details and simultaneously outputs separate three channels of 2MP HDCVI video.

This results in four crystal-clear video feeds from just one camera, drastically reducing installation and maintenance costs. Additionally, the multi-sensor camera also supports electronic cruise and multiple motion detection functionality. Its panoramic view makes the camera an ideal choice for large-size businesses and places such as airports, stadiums, parking lots, and shopping centres.


180° panoramic view

Equipped with 3x2MP CMOS sensors the PFW3601 camera can monitor full horizontal views and deliver high quality comprehensive 180-degree coverage with no blind spot. The camera is able to provide coverage of wide, open areas, such as airports, harbours, parks, public squares, shopping centres and more. Users will get overall video coverage with just one HACPFW3601 over coax with less hardware, saving you money.

Multichannel video output

With four BNC interfaces HAC-PFW3601 can output three channels of 2MP separate real-time video corresponding to three independent imaging systems and one channel of seamless stitching panoramic video at the same time. The three-in-one design combines details with full view to meet the efficient and cost-effective installation requirements.

Intelligent mode

Utilise Dahua's advance intelligent algorithm the panoramic channel is able to support electronic cruise, a.k.a. E-PTZ, which benefits the detection of moving targets in critical areas. Realise the regional area amplification of the panoramic image, the size and location are adjustable as you want.

4 signals over 1 coaxial cable

HDCVI technology supports 4 signals to be transmitted over 1 coaxial cable simultaneously, i.e. video, audio, data and power. Dual-way data transmission allows the HDCVI camera to interact with the HCVR, such as sending control signals or triggering alarms. Moreover, HDCVI technology supports PoC for construction flexibility.

Long distance transmission

HDCVI technology guarantees real-time transmission at long distance without any loss. It supports up to 700m transmission for 4K and 4MP HD video via RG6 coaxial cable, and up to 300m via UTP cable.


HDCVI technology inherits the born feature of simplicity from traditional analogue surveillance system. Meanwhile, by having one PFW3601 camera, users can get several different monitor points, making it the best choice for investment protection. On the other hand, the HDCVI system can seamlessly upgrade the traditional analogue system without replacing existing coaxial cabling. The plug and play approach enables full HD video surveillance without the hassle of configuring a network.

Wide Dynamic Range

Embedded with industry leading wide dynamic range (WDR) technology, vivid pictures are achieved even in the most intense contrast lighting conditions. True WDR (120dB) optimises both the bright and dark areas of a scene at the same time to provide usable video.

Advanced 3DNR

3DNR is noise reduction technology that detects and eliminates random noises by comparing two sequential frames. Dahua’s advanced 3DNR technology allows remarkable noise reduction with little impact to sharpness, especially under limited lighting conditions. Besides, the advanced 3DNR effectively decreases the bandwidth and saves on storage space.


The camera's outstanding reliability is unsurpassed due to its rugged design. The camera is protected against vandalism with IK10-rated and IP67 water-proof, making it suitable for most environments; such as public places, manufacturing and commercial facilities.

Supporting ±25% input voltage tolerance, this camera suits even the most unstable power supply conditions. Its 4KV lightning rating provides protection against the camera and its structure from the effects of lightning.
