By IPVM Team, Published Apr 05, 2018, 09:53am EDT

While overall new product releases have been slowing over the past few years, Hanwha is releasing a slew of 6 new offerings for ISC West, including:

  • HD analog encoders
  • New multi-imagers
  • Thermal cameras
  • Mobile cameras and recorders
  • A decoder
  • Stainless steel cameras

In this note, we examine each of these offerings, considering the potential market impact of each and the overall competitive impact this will have for Hanwha against key rivals such as Axis and Hikvision.

The multi-imagers and analog encoders are the cream of this crop IMO. Unless their thermal offering is ground breaking, it is a me-too-fill-in-the-blank offering, along with the stainless. The mobile stuff is a very niche market, limiting it's overall value. I guess the decoder may have value as well but I have been leaning towards mini PCs for their versatility as viewing stations. The cost is low enough (around $300) and you get a full fledged PC.

Would love to see the 4 imager unit in person.

Agreed.  Their 20MP multi-sensor camera is very cool, but massive.  I am very interested to see these newer, smaller cameras.

Hanwha has a display dedicated to their mobile lineup at ISC, with one camera encased in a block of ice, another under a constant water jet, and an NVR on a vibrating mount with a weight dropped onto it regularly.

I'll admit, I'm a Hanwha fanboy and a sucker for a good gimmick, but that's pretty cool.

Bummer. Looks like Axis is Q3 for the P3717 too. I have a June project that needs a quad imager, low light, varifocal (motorized hopefully), and cover about 220 degrees with 20MP preferably.

Have you previously looked at the Arecont Omni G3 line?

A much smaller option quickly mentioned in another IPVM report.

7FPS limit is way too low. Even if it could do 15FPS, I would consider it an option.
