Dahua launches multi-lens 180-degree panoramic network IR bullet camera

Product Profile

Dahua Technology, manufacturer and supplier of video surveillance products headquartered in Hangzhou, China, has introduced its Multi-lens 180-degree Panoramic Network IR Bullet Camera.

Dahua Multi-lens 180-degree Panoramic Network IR Bullet Camera IPC-PFW8601-A180 provides added flexibility for capturing wide area video surveillance. With real-time image splicing technology, the camera has three 2MP sensors working in tandem to create a comprehensive 180-degree view. This camera replaces multiple single-sensor cameras to lower cost of installation, storage and maintenance.

Adjustments can be made to each sensor on contrast and brightness to achieve crystal-clear panorama view. The multi-lens camera supports day/night mechanical IR cut filter and true WDR (120dB) which make it ideal for applications in fluctuating lighting conditions. In addition, this camera deploys Dahua Starlight Technology to deliver usable video with minimal ambient light.

Video analytics feature

The camera is equipped with a built-in intelligent video analytics algorithm, which can realise functions like Tripwire, Intrusion, Abandoned object, Missing object, to quickly and accurately respond to events in specific area. At the same time, the camera features face detection and intelligent tamper detection, which means more efficient security surveillance.

The camera has smart IR technology which can adjust the intensity of camera's infrared LEDs to compensate for the distance of an object. Smart IR technology prevents IR LEDs from whitening out images as they come closer to the camera.

With an operating ambient temperature range of -40 °C to +60 °C, IP67 and IK10 rating, this camera suits almost any outdoor applications including open and expansive areas like borders, coastlines, highway, square and stadium.
