IQinVision has released its newest version of the popular Sentinel HD Megapixel line of IP cameras. Like the line it is replacing the full featured all-weather outdoor camera comes in four models offering the user a choice of resolutions
- The IQ861NE with 1.0 megapixel /HD720p (1280Px720p)
- IQ862NE - 2.0MP/HD1080p (1920x1080)
- IQ863NE 3.6MP(2560x1440)
- IQ865NE 5.0MP (2592x1944)
The Sentinel makes installing easier. Using the One-Touch-Focus feature, fine focus adjustments can be made from a remote computer, eliminating the need for manual focusing at the camera. With its Ethernet terminal punch-down there is no need to terminate with an RJ45 connector. And although it is a simple feature, installers will appreciate the steel camera hangers that allow the use of both hands.
The new Sentinel cameras provide multiple, individually configured H.264 and simultaneous MJPEG streams. The H.264 standard builds on earlier standards such as MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 resulting in better compression performance. Compared with MPEG-4, H.264 gives a better quality image at the same compressed bitrate. In addition to its superior compression performance, H.264 offers added flexibility over MPEG-4 in terms of transmission or storage, including a packetized format and features that help minimize the effect of transmission errors.
The Sentinel can be considered green in that it has a power consumption of less than 7 watts, which is lower than many similar cameras. It can also operate using Power-over-Ethernet. In addition to the aforementioned features, all four models come with
- Day/night moveable IR filter
- Lightgrabber low light feature
- IP66/NEMA 4 outdoor enclosure
- Choice of telephoto, wide, or ultra-wide lens
All this plus IQinVisons standard three year warranty make any of the Sentinel cameras a wise choice. Contact Kintronics for pricing and availability. We can be reached at 914-944-3425 or use our contact form.
