Multi-sensor Cameras Offer Flexible Security Options

(Dahua Technology)

Dahua Technology expands its North America IP product line with two multi-sensor cameras, the Multi-flex and Dual-Sensor cameras with increased flexibility and a lower total cost of ownership compared to multiple single sensor cameras. The latest addition is the Multi-flex DH-IPC-PDBW5831N-B360, a 4x2 Mpixel multi-sensor camera groomed for meeting evolving user requirements.


The camera offers advanced streaming capabilities and is designed on an efficient H.265 encoding platform capable of delivering high quality video without straining the network. With the Dahua Smart H.264+ /H.265+ optimized codec, a higher savings on bandwidth and storage is realized.

Hear the CEOs of Infosys & HPE discuss the current crisis and how it has accelerated the need for digital transformation for their clients. Connectivity at the Edge, right mix of hybrid cloud, ability to extract data faster than ever before… these are just some of the contributions that HPE and Infosys make to our clients’ digital transformation journey.


With the flexibility to simultaneously move each sensor module around the camera’s internal track for 180°, 270°, or 360° fields of view, and its integrated IR illuminators, at up to 98 feet (30 meters), the Multi-flex can be configured to minimize blind spots for improved situational awareness.


Other features include Enhanced Starlight Technology so that images remain in color for a longer period (0.005 lux). The camera combines a true day/night mechanical IRcut filter for high quality images in environments with changing lighting conditions. For applications with bright or over saturated lighting, true wide dynamic range delivers up to 120 dB at full resolution on channel 1 and digital wide dynamic range on channels 2-4. Power can be supplied via a single Power-over-Ethernet compliant network cable (PoE+) or with power from a 24 Vac, 3A power supply.


The DH-IPC-HDBW4231FN-E2-MSeries dual-sensor dome camera functions as two individual cameras in one indoor/outdoor rated housing. Options include an RJ45 connector with a2.8 mm lens and an M12 D-coded Ethernet connector for an added level of stability in a mobile environment with a 2.8 mm or 3.6 mm lens. All options include EN 50155 shock and vibration certification. The camera has two independent, 2MP, STARVIS CMOS sensors with dual-stream encoding (per sensor) and the Dahua Intelligent Video System (IVS)analytics, including facial detection.


Additional highlights include IR distance of up to 66 feet (20 meters), Basic Starlight Technology for scenes with low-light conditions (0.009lux), and True Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) at 120 dB for challenging direct sunlight or glare. Power can be supplied via a single PoE compliant network cable or with power from a12 Vdc power supply. For more information, please visit Dahua Technology.
