Dahua Technology, a world-leading manufacturer and solution provider of video surveillance products headquartered in Hangzhou, China, announced recently that its latest network camera DH-HFW5200C becomes one of the first that passes UL-2802 (Performance Testing Standard for Camera Image Quality) certification in the industry and helps you better protected.
Underwriters Laboratories (UL) launched UL-2802 which is the newest digital-camera performance standard, defining a method to determine video camera digital image quality ratings through a series of performance tests. Cameras are rated on the following parameters: image resolution; distortion; relative illumination; dynamic range; maximum frame rate; gray level; sensitivity; bad pixel count and veiling glare.
DH-HFW5200C, being a part of Dahua Eco-Savvy series, presents an outstanding performance as it achieves quite high scores during testing, three tests results (Relative Illumination / Dynamic Range / Bad Pixel) are of perfect scores, and others (Gray Level / Sensitivity / Veiling Glare) score strongly as well, according to the UL testing report.
“It is a pleasure to work with all manufacturers and Dahua provides one of the first opportunities for certification. The UL-2802 program is a critical stepping stone for end users, manufacturers and integrators to objectively evaluate the performance of a camera’s image quality. The UL test methods and procedures provide a fresh technical approach to objectively evaluating camera image quality.” Said Yeo Fong, Asia Business Development Manager of Built Environment of Underwriters Laboratories.
“UL is a reliable professional and trusted partner and the UL-2802 camera quality program they introduced is of great prospect”, said Tim Shen, overseas Marketing Director at Dahua Technology. “As a manufacturer, we are very happy to participate in this program as it is beneficial to the industry. There finally exists a third-party standard, administered by a trusted quality organisation, which differentiates cameras in a fair and objective way.”
Shen continues, “The standard will definitely help end-users to identify the most optimal ones for given applicants and market players of integrity could also hence better enjoy the game, Dahua Technology welcomes such a standard and will continue to work closely with UL as a long-term partner to benefit the market.”
