Now that (most) new announcements have been made for the first part of the year, it is time to evaluate what new cameras IPVM should be testing.
Keep in mind, though, that a lot of the products announced may not ship for 6 months to a year.
That noted, here is my initial list:
- FLIR super low cost thermal: match it up against integrated IR and see the tradeoffs, i.e., is thermal now really cost competitive against conventional cameras
- Axis 4K camera: because it is Axis and to see how bad it really is in low light
- Hikvision Integrated IR panoramic / 360 camera: to see how much better it works in low light than traditional non IR panoramics
- Arecont omni cameras: because it is essentially a new form factor - repositionable multi-imager, see what benefits / issues it has
Those are 4 that really stand out to me.
Feel free to share your suggestions but you must explain why you think it is worth testing, like I did above.
