Camera test: Convision CC-8171
- 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 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 Convision CC-8171. Let us have a look at the results:
With the CC-8171 Convision, a subsidiary of PCS Systemtechnik presents the first model of a new network camera series. With the CC-8000 series, Convision offers excellent image quality with attractive value for money. All models in the CC-8000 series are ONVIF-compatible and support IPv6. The 5 megapixel camera provides an infra-red cut-off filter, which ensures good imaging quality by day and night. The high resolution allows the user to identify the finest details of the recorded surveillance image - even with the use of the digital zoom.
Especially with good illumination of the scene, the day/night fixed camera with a maximum resolution of 5 megapixels gives a sharp, high-contrast image with clear colour reproduction. Thanks to multi-streaming, the camera can provide several image steams, in various resolutions if required. In addition, up to four observation areas (ROI - Region of Interest) can be defined, which can each be communicated with independent video streams.
