Hanwha's first repositionable multi imager PNM-9081VQ tested well, but was huge, over 12" wide and weighing in at over 10 pounds. Now, they have released their second generation, the PNM-9000VQ, aiming to remedy this issue with smaller size and more flexible imager placement.
We bought and tested the PNM-9000VQ to see how it performs, examining:
- How does this new model compare in size to Hanwha's older models and competitive multi imagers?
- Are imagers easy to position? How flexible is mounting?
- Can imagers be positioned closely together, unlike Hanwha's PNM-9081 model?
- How does it perform in daylight, low light (~1 lux), and dark scenes (~0.1 lux)?
- How do bitrates compare to the first generation model?
- How well does it integrated to VMSes? How many licenses does it use?
This is the first in a series of repositionable multi imager tests in 2019. We have upcoming tests on Axis' P3717-PLE as well as Avigilon's H4 Multi-Sensor.
