Corner Mount Camera for Secure Room Environments
The new Wisenet TNV-7010RC 3 megapixel corner mount camera manufactured by Hanwha Techwin has been designed to meet the requirements of police, prisons and mental health institutions where there is a duty of care to prevent inmates and patients from self-harming.
The Wisenet TNV-7010RC has a built-in 940nm IR emitter which projects infrared light up to 10 metres at a higher wavelength than traditional red glowing IR lighting. This is invisible to the human eye and avoids the risk of disturbing those sleeping in secure rooms. The true day/night camera which is able to capture clear, sharp colour images when the light levels are as low as 0.3Lux, also features Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), which performs at up to 120dB, to accurately produce images in scenes that simultaneously contain very bright and very dark areas.
“Sadly, there are inmates and patients who try to self-harm and with this in mind, the corner mount housing of the Wisenet TNV-7010RC has been built to make it impossible for anyone to tie a ligature around it provided it is properly installed,” said Uri Guterman, Head of Product & Marketing for Hanwha Techwin Europe. “A lot of thought was also applied to the design of the housing to ensure it is sufficiently robust for secure room environments. It is, for example, IK10+ vandal resistant and has ingress protection rated at IP66 and IP6K9K, as well as a shock detection feature to alert control room operators if anyone is trying to damage it.”
To protect an inmate or patient’s privacy, masking zones can be configured precisely over a specific area of the camera’s field of view, whilst a built-in microphone and audio support facilitates two-way communication.
The multi-streaming h.265 Wisenet TNV-7010RC has a long list of additional features which will benefit operators monitoring the open areas of police, prisons and mental health institutions. These include a built-in suite of analytics such as Tampering, Loitering, Directional Detection, Defocus Detection, Fog Detection, Virtual Line, Enter/Exit, Appear / Disappear, Audio Detection, Face Detection, Motion Detection, and Sound Classification.
A ‘Hallway View’ provides a highly effective way to monitor narrow vertical areas such as corridors as it enables cameras which can generate images in the 9:16 x 3:4 aspect ratio, to work effectively in tall and narrow spaces.
