IR Speed Dome Or IR Light And Speed Dome

Has any one used the Alibi 1080p Full HD 30x Zoom 390' IR; I'm trying to determine if the all in one can provide anywhere near the performance of an good external IR illuminator with a quality speed dome.

Alibi = Hikvision

Related, we are right now in the middle of testing FLIR / Dahua IR PTZ vs Axis traditional PTZ.

Using a PTZ with an external IR illuminator is really challenging, rarely done and hard to do well because of the need to cover such a wide and deep area.

We have an IR PTZ test already posted and we'll have the other one next week.

The manufacturer cross reference is most helpful. You also have a good point about external IR & PTZ setup.
