Hanwha Smaller Multi Imager Tested (PNM-9000VQ)

By: Ethan Ace, Published on Feb 14, 2019

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.
