Hanwha Brings Color Night Vision to X Series Camera Range
Hanwha says extraLUX-enabled cameras capture clear, true-color images in low-light conditions without IR LEDs, regardless of the environment or time of day.
TEANECK, N.J. — Hanwha Techwin America, a global supplier of IP and analog video surveillance solutions, has added extraLUX, an industry-leading extreme low-light capability, to its X series camera range.
Hanwha says the extraLUX-enabled cameras capture clear, true-color images in low-light conditions without IR LEDs, regardless of the environment or time of day.
extraLUX is now available in the XNB-6005, XNO-6085R (bullet), XNV-6085 (outdoor dome) and XND-6085 (indoor dome) X series cameras. These cameras include a motorized vari-focal lens (4.1mm ~16.4mm) which allows the user to remotely zoom in/out and focus.
The XND-6085 an XNV-6085 both feature full pan/tilt/zoom/rotate (p/t/z/r) for additional control and positioning. The XNB-6005 box camera also features a ½” sensor and a choice of lens configurations including an intelligent CS (I-CS) lens that communicates its position, iris and focus directly to the camera for more accurate and fast image adjustments.
Additionally, the XNO-6085R, XNV-6085, XND-6085 and the XNB-6005 features a built-in gyro sensor for digital image stabilization which is said to provide a more accurate stable image when turned on in an environment that causes the camera to shake. For illuminating distant objects, the XNO-6085R has built-in IR that reaches 229 feet (70m).
Wisenet X series cameras feature Wisenet 5 technology, which provides 150dB wide dynamic range (WDR), a comprehensive suite of license-free built-in analytics, enhanced device security and better compression and data transfer performance via Hanwha’s embedded WiseStream II compression technology and H.265 high-efficiency encoding, according to the company.
“We created extraLUX for customers with extreme low-light requirements,” says Paul Kong, technical director, Hanwha Techwin America. “This is the best low-light camera we have ever produced. Unlike typical low-light, noisy IR black and white images of the past, our extraLUX cameras generate minimal noise, allowing customers to see color images at night.”
