Examining VideoIQ's 1080p Fixed Dome Camera (iCVR-HD)

By: John Honovich, Published on Oct 07, 2010

VideoIQ released new models in their iCVR dome camera line- The iCVR-HD. This offering bumps up the resolution options from D1 to 1080p.

The iCVR-HD's analytics functionality is discussed in detail on VideoIQ's blog. The site claims the iCVR-HD analytics processes is run using the full megapixel image on-board the camera. Contrast to ioimage's ioicam mmp100dn. This camera has a 3MP sensor, but it is only used to implement picture-in-picture functionality. The analytics processes is run at 4CIF.

Another claim is that the iCVR-HD provides 3X greater horizontal coverage than an SD camera.  Our test of the VideoIQ iCVR-SD analytics detected people up to a 170 ft wide field of view. If their claim of increased horizontal coverage holds true, then the HD camera should be able to cover 450 - 500 ft wide field of views.

Unlike the iCVR-D1, the HD line does not have multiple lens options, so the camera will be limited to a small range of wide angle views. Also, the HD release is limited to dome cameras only, where the D1 line features box and dome form factors. Further key points of differentiation between the iCVR-HD and iCVR-SD include:
