In cooperation with Seetec, GIT SECURITY tests current and new video cameras under standardised conditions in the test laboratory of the SeeTec Hardware Competence Center. The Hardware Competence Center was set up because the data and performance specifications of network cameras as stated by manufacturers are often measured under different conditions and are not always reliable in practice. The results provided a sound basis for planning IP video projects and help to avoid unpleasant surprises. For the testing procedure, video sequences are produced under defined lighting scenarios and are then evaluated. Here, movements in the picture as well as night and backlight situations are taken into consideration.
GIT SECURITY and Seetec did test the IP camera Ganz ZN-DWNT 350VPE. Let us have a look at the results:
Ganz ZN-DWNT 350VPE
A member of the Ganz IP range of H.264 IP Mini domes, the ZN-DWNT350VPE Wide Dynamic Range camera is available throughout Europe through CBC.
The range includes Vandal resistant dome cameras in colour, true day/night and Wide dynamic range options. Built to IP67 standards using a robust metal housing or polycarbonate on the internal options, the camera offers resistance to weather and vandalism.
The cameras feature a combination of high-resolution video images and a low data rate. They are equipped with a sensitive 1/3" CCD sensor providing 550TVL. In addition, the variable lenses of the day/night versions are infrared compensated to minimize focusing errors when used under IR light. Optional onboard Video Analytics is available on the entire range.
The dust and splashproof PoE dome camera with day/night switchover was impressive during the test with its good recovery and clear presentation of moving objects. It has an I/O port and an audio input/output. The camera supports video analysis functions from twist protection to the recognition of deposited or removed objects (optional). The camera corresponds to the ONVIF specification.
