In cooperation with Seetec, GIT SECURITY tests current and new video cameras under standardised conditions in the test laboratory of the SeeTec Hardware Competence Centre. The Hardware Competence Centre 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 compact fixed dome camera UTC-TrueVision TVC-M5220-1-P. Let us have a look at the results:
The range of TruVision IP and IP megapixel cameras includes cameras with VGA resolution up to 5 megapixels. All cameras support the latest H.264 compression technology. Due to the combination with Progressive Scan the TVC-M5220-1-P 5 megapixel camera provides flexible advanced technology and signal processing in order to provide effective video images even under difficult conditions. The dual-streaming function facilitates the management of bandwidth utilisation. Video streams can be set for high and low bandwidths and images can be separately streamed, e.g. for live display or at a particular recording location. The TruVision megapixel IP camera is ONVIF and PSIA-compatible and can therefore be easily integrated into existing IP systems.
The PSIA and OnVIF-compatible fixed camera with day/night switch-over delivers up to 7 images/second with a resolution of 5 megapixels. Especially with good ambient illumination, it impresses with a clear, sharp and high-contrast image. The camera supports dual-streaming and the definition of private areas in the camera image and is equipped with motion detection.
