Hanwha Announces Wisenet X series PTZ PLUS Cameras, powered by the Wisenet 7 SoC

Based on new Wisenet 7 SoC, new cameras feature AI-based object tracking, enhanced cyber security, precise PTZ control, and clear images in all lighting conditions

Teaneck, NJ, October 21, 2020Hanwha Techwin, a global supplier of IP and analog video surveillance solutions, has announced the launch of its new high definition Wisenet X PTZ PLUS cameras. Available immediately from Hanwha’s extensive network of resellers and systems integrators, the new cameras feature AI-based object tracking, precise PTZ control, improved pre-set accuracy, adaptive IR illumination and enhanced cyber security.

Designed for perimeter protection and large, open area applications such as airports, parking lots, industrial estates, stadiums and city centers, the new 2MP, 6MP and 4K Wisenet X PTZ PLUS cameras are able to capture forensic-level image quality at a distance of up to 650 feet (200 meters). Featuring adaptive IR technology which adjusts the power of the camera’s IR LEDs, they can match the level of zoom regardless of the lighting conditions.

Wisenet 7 chipset

At the heart of the new Wisenet X PTZ PLUS cameras is Wisenet 7, Hanwha Techwin’s ground-breaking proprietary System on a Chip (SoC), significantly enhancing the cameras’ cyber security credentials. The cameras also benefit from a Hanwha Techwin proprietary device certificate issuing system which embeds unique certificates into Wisenet products during the development phase and the manufacturing process. Additional cyber security features include ‘Secure by Default’ configuration and UL CAP certification.

Wisenet 7 also ensures the capture of high-quality images with an ‘extreme’ Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) feature utilizing Local Contrast Enhancement and Scene Analysis technologies to capture ultra-clear images from scenes containing a challenging mix of bright and dark areas.

Auto-tracking

A unique AI auto-tracking feature allows control room operators to efficiently monitor the movement of objects while remaining hands-free to control other cameras. With a right click of a mouse, operators can program a camera to lock onto and auto-track a specific object. It does so with the help of deep learning video analytics which detects and classifies people and vehicles.

Preset accuracy

During their life cycle, most PTZ cameras are likely to be expected to ‘pan and tilt’ many thousands of times which can lead to positioning errors. Wisenet PTZ PLUS cameras, which have a pre-set accuracy of ±0.1˚, are able to detect if they are not precisely aimed at the specified field of view and will move within one second to the correct position.

Other key features

  • Built-in wiper remove rain, sleet or snow and then activate a heater on the lens to dry any residual water.
  • An extended tilt range of up to 110⁰ ensures that objects positioned above the cameras can be seen.
  • Improvements in manual control PTZ functionality makes it much easier for operators to manually zoom to see close up detail of target objects and track their movement.
  • A focus save function, which can be applied to 32 pre-defined areas, ensures that regardless of the lighting conditions, a camera is able to rapidly come into focus when it is moved to a new position.
  • Dome-free design provides a clear image free of streaks from rain or dust.

Installer friendly

Compact and approximately 65% lighter than most PTZ domes, the camera-mount can be quickly and easily deployed, requiring a technician to simply ‘mate 3 pins and twist’. This enables installers to tighten screws without having to hold onto the camera. Unlike conventional PTZ cameras which require up to 5 separate cables, the Wisenet X PTZ PLUS only needs a single RJ45 cable to provide data and power. An RJ45 cap tool is included to pass a terminated network cable through the flexible grommet, ensuring the camera is waterproof.

The new Wisenet PTZ PLUS cameras are available in the following models:

Additional PTZ PLUS models are scheduled to be released in the future.
