We are pleased to introduce Dahua’s N24 (2MP) and N44 (4MP) Pro Series network cameras with future-proof H.264/H.265 dual codec for more flexibility in managing bandwidth and storage.

Dahua’s new 2MP and 4MP resolution IP cameras feature the latest H.265-ready codec for a 40-50% savings on bandwidth and storage versus standard H.264. For an even higher savings, Smart H.265+ is available on the N24 and N44 Series. When compared to standard H.264, Dahua’s smart codec can save up to 80% on network bandwidth and subsequent storage costs by reducing transmission, bit rates, and storage capacity. The multi-pronged approach works by making reductions of useless or unimportant data wherever possible. As a result, high quality video is maintained without straining the network.

Dahua’s N24 and N44 Series offers a 2.8mm or 3.6mm fixed lens option in four form factors: mini eyeball, mini dome, wedge, and mini bullet-style housings. These cameras are embedded with an IR cut filter making them suitable for applications with varying lighting conditions. Industry-leading wide dynamic range (WDR) technology (120dB) is featured on the 2MP and 4MP models, providing detailed images in scenes with bright or dark contrast.

For challenging low-light applications, the 2MP model offers Starlight technology, which captures color details in low light down to 0.009 lux, resulting in stunningly clear images in very dark environments. For low light or total dark applications, integrated IR illumination provides detailed images. The camera’s Smart IR technology adjusts the intensity of the camera’s infrared LEDs to compensate for the distance of an object, preventing the IR LEDs from whitening out images as they come closer to the camera.

The 4MP camera offers 30fps @ 4MP real-time and the 2MP camera offers 60fps at 1080p. The camera series conforms to the ONVIF standard to ensure interoperability between network video products. Pair with any Dahua H.265 NVR for a complete, optimized solution.
