Camera Test: Sanyo HD4000 and Axis Q1755
- Read Whitepaper
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 new IP cameras Sanyo HD4000 and Axis Q1755. Let us have a look at the results:
Since its launch in 2008, the VCC-HD4000P has attracted a great deal of interest and was named as CCTV Product of the Year at the Ifsec 2009. The Sanyo HD4000P is a Full High Definition (HD) network camera, equipped with a 4 megapixel progressive scan sensor. An integrated autofocus 10x optical zoom makes the camera an ideal solution for all applications in which detailed close-up images are required. In addition, the VCC-HD4000P utilises technological advances with dual-streaming (H.264 and JPEG to enable simultaneous high resolution H.264 live surveillance in real time.
With the high end model Q1755, Axis has a HDTV high resolution network camera in its range, which should offer advantages in areas in which detailed images are necessary, e.g. in airports, passport control or in casinos and high security areas. The Q1755 provides day and night functionality and progressive scanning. It is equipped with intelligent video functions such as improved video motion detection, audio detection and detection of tampering with the camera. It features a 10x optical and 12x digital zoom with autofocus.
