Camera test: In Focus: IQ eye 762N
- 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.
The IQ eye 762N is a full featured Full HD indoor camera from IQinVision's 7 Series. This next generation camera provides multiple, individually configured and simultaneous MJPEG streams. Designed with the installer in mind, analog video out along with remote back focus makes installation easy. The 7 Series camera supports PoE and is featuring a moveable IR filter for day and night functionality. The camera provides image controls for optimization of video for any lighting
condition. Two-way audio allows for interactive communication between the camera and monitoring site. It also supports the configuration of virtual cameras and permits camera-based movement recognition.
The IQ eye 762N provides a consistently good picture with neutral color reproduction under even lighting conditions. For the device used in the tests, however, the backlight performance could not be evaluated due to the high over-modulation of the image. On the positive side, it must be mentioned that the camera still allows objects and movement to be seen even at extremely low light levels.
