IRVINE, Calif., December 3, 2020 – Dahua Technology, a world-leading, video-centric, provider of smart IoT solutions, is rolling out several new video security solutions built around new technology for its North America market, including hybrid thermal cameras, multi-sensor cameras, panoramic fisheye cameras, penta-brid recorders, as well as license plate recognition cameras, to meet end users’ unique needs.
Headlining the new offerings are a number of cameras in Dahua’s WizSense (pronounced “Wise Sense”) and WizMind (pronounced “Wise Mind”) lines, which make selecting products with the right analytics easy. “No two applications are identical, so Dahua’s new products are designed to offer ultimate flexibility and the ability to deliver powerful, customized solutions and systems to meet end users’ unique needs,” said Jennifer Hackenburg, senior product marketing manager, Dahua Technology USA.
WizSense — Hybrid Compact IP Thermal Cameras
Hybrid thermal cameras deliver higher security by allowing users to see both the visible and the invisible. Part of the WizSense Series, the Hybrid Thermal Network Bullet (DH-TPC-BF1241N) and Eyeball (DH-TPC-DF1241N) cameras combine an uncooled VOx 256 x 192 thermal imager with a 4MP visible-light sensor for cost-effective, short-range surveillance in a rugged all-in-one package. They offer early fire detection, crucial for saving lives, tangible assets, time, money and resources. The thermal imager coupled with a thermalized, focus-free lens produces crisp images in total darkness and delivers high thermal sensitivity that sees through rain, fog, and snow. The hybrid thermal cameras take functionality even further by also featuring simultaneous Smart Alarm, with customizable voice prompt, and white light LEDs when an abnormal behavior is detected. With the addition of Analytics+, false alerts from animals, weather and debris can be reduced so only alerts for humans and vehicles are detected, for higher efficiency.
WizMind — Multi-Sensor IP Cameras
Dahua’s new 2nd generation WizMind multi-sensor cameras, with an all new sleek silver housing, provide added flexibility for capturing wide area video surveillance. With four (4) 2MP, 45-degree sensors working in tandem to create a comprehensive 180° overview, each multi-sensor camera can replace multiple single-sensor cameras, providing a higher return on investment. Accurate, seamless stitching increases operator effectiveness without having to switch focus between multiple channels. Available in a bullet (DH-IPC-PFW8840N-A180) and dome (DH-IPC-PDBW8840N-A180), these multi-sensor cameras feature Starlight Technology and IR illumination up to 98 feet for a crystal-clear image even in the most challenging lighting conditions. With two new Analytics+ features, people and vehicles can be monitored more closely. Vehicle Density detects the number of vehicles in a selected area such as traffic lanes or parking lots. For applications with lots of people, the Crowd Map analytic provides an early warning when the crowd quantity or density exceeds the user-defined threshold.
WizMind — Panoramic IP Fisheye Cameras
With 5MP resolution and 360° panoramic range, these upgraded cameras deliver high-quality images with crisp details and accurate color rendition, even under complex lighting conditions thanks to True WDR (120 dB). Available in both indoor (N55CT5) and outdoor (N55CS5) versions, these 5MP fisheye models are part of Dahua’s WizMind series and include Analytics+ with advanced people-counting for monitoring up to four areas and heat-mapping.
Penta-brid HDCVI Recorders
As with Dahua’s previous penta-brid models, these solutions can seamlessly record video from HDCVI, AHD, HDTVI, CVBS, and IP sources simultaneously for maximum flexibility. What sets these DVRs apart is the ability to record 4K video on each HDCVI channel. Available in 8-channel (X82R2A and X82B2A) and 16-channel (X52B3A and X82B3A) models, these recorders take advantage of HDCVI technology for easy integration into existing video surveillance systems while leveraging existing networks, cabling, and cameras.
License Plate Recognition Cameras
Dahua’s new License Plate Recognition cameras, ITC237-PW6M-IRLZF1050-B and ITC215-PW6M-IRLZF-B, automatically capture vehicle license plate images, and recognize license plate numbers and letters. License plate recognition technology offers effective entrance/exit management, traffic surveillance, and parking lot monitoring with DSS Video Management Software.
