Camera test: Basler BIP2 1920c dn
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 Basler BIP2 1920c dn. Let us have a look at the results:
Basler BIP2 1920c dn
The ultra-compact and price-sensitive Basler BIP2-1920c-dn IP camera is equipped with a 1920 x 1080 pixel CMOS sensor and delivers real-time video data at 30 fps with Full HD resolution. H.264 compression ensures minimal bandwidth. Basler's latest line of box cameras are the smallest, cameras on the market. Multi-Encoding offers the full range of video compression techniques: H.264, MPEG4 or MJPEG. The Area of Interest (AOI) feature allows users to define customized regions within the field of view. Selected AOIs can be streamed and encoded separately as virtual cameras.
The full HD camera with day/night capability features an extremely compact design. Powered via PoE, the camera can provide two parallel video streams in MJPEG, MPEG4 or H.264 and supports motion detection and definition of areas of interest.
