Dahua Technology USA Announces 2x4MP Multi-Sensor PoE Cameras
Explaining on why it reclassified its Night Color low-light technology, Dahua Technology USA says it wanted to make it easier for dealers and their clients to understand its products and how they work.
IRVINE, Calif.—Dahua Technology USA, a global, video-centric, provider of smart IoT solutions, has announced a new 2x4MP multi-sensor ePoE camera series and the company says it improved classification of its Night Color low-light technology.
Night Color Technology has been recategorized across all Dahua Technology USA cameras that utilize this technology, a move that helps security dealers and integrators more efficiently choose the appropriate camera for superior performance in low-light environments.
The company states the first generation of its Night Color Technology was launched in 2018, and the technology offers full color images in low-light environments without the use of LEDs or IR cut filters.
“Our decision to modify the naming conventions for our low-light cameras stems from our commitment to help our customers succeed,” says Jennifer Hackenburg, product marketing director at Dahua Technology USA.
“Dealers and installers need to be able to confidently recommend products and technologies to their clients and clearly explain the benefits of choosing a particular camera. Regrouping our Night Color family into more straightforward categories will help our dealers demonstrate more expertise and confidence when they are selling.”
2x4MP Multi-Sensor ePoE Camera Series Features
Dahua Technology explains that its Night Color technology is now categorized into three groups:
- Basic Night Color features VU-MORE cameras as a cost-effective offering. Integrated white-light LEDs illuminate when human motion is detected and the camera reverts to IR for covertness in dark scenarios.
- Enhanced Night Color offers integrated white-light LEDs for continuous illumination when the scene gets dark. The LEDs act as a deterrence until lighting is restored.
- Night Color+ features Fusion cameras as the top tier offering with the best covert performance in near-dark scenarios without any white light LEDs.
With the new categories of Night Color, Dahua also announced the release of its Enhanced Night Color 180-degree panoramic camera series (DH-IPC-PFW5849-A180-E2-ASTE and DH-IPC-PDW5849-A180-E2-ASTE). Dahua points out this products is equipped with dual 4MP sensors that deliver a single panoramic image without blind spots approximately three times greater than the light intake of a typical F1.6 aperture, the camera’s F1.0 aperture allows for significantly brighter and clearer color images of the scene in dark environments.
Some of the other features include two-way talk with a verbal alarm warning. There are 10 pre-recorded verbal warnings and users can upload their own audio warning. With the unique Electronic Pan Tilt Zoom (EPTZ) capability, the camera automatically tracks the target on the sub images while showing the full 180-degree field-of-view on the same stream. The camera also has a new analytic feature, Smart Object Detection, which is a component of Dahua’s Analytics+ technology.
Dahua notes that its Smart Object Detection analyzes a scene to trigger an alarm when an object remains in or is removed from a monitoring area. The advanced algorithm can identify four types of objects—luggage, bags, boxes, and non-motor vehicles—and filter false alarms due to leaves, animals, and other inconsequential objects. Additional Analytics+ functions include perimeter protection, people counting, and Smart Motion Detection (SMD).
