Hanwha claims "premium performance" and to "deliver the best in high resolution performance and efficiency" with their Wisenet P series 4K models, equipped with H.265 and Wisestream smart codec, true WDR, and integrated IR.
To test these claims, we bought and tested the PNV-9080R, examining:
- How does it compare to Hanwha's Wisenet X series 5MP and 1080p cameras in full light (~200 lux), low light (~2 lux), and dark (~0.02 lux) scenes?
- How does its true WDR performance handle wide dynamic scenes?
- How do WiseStream H.265 and H.264 bitrates compare?
- How well does it integrate to VMSes?
This is the latest in our series of updated 4K camera testing, following Bosch's Starlight 8000i, with Avigilon, Axis, Dahua, Hikvision, Vivotek, and more coming soon. Suggestions? Let us know what other 4K cameras we should test.
