We did some very rough testing of it, playing various sounds into connected mic (which is not a rigorous method of testing by any means). It worked sometimes. Gunshots were fairly accurate, though sometimes interpreted as a scream, oddly. Actual screams were generally always detected as a scream.
We may circle back on it if there's a lot of interest or others start offering something similar.
Great information, and very timely, thank you! I received a demo XNV-6080R from a rep to test against our Axis cameras but I couldn't get it to work with our VideoEdge servers. It doesn't look like it is supported on any version, and neither is H.265. This article just saved me a bunch of time. Thanks again!
Thank you for this review. Looks like Hanwha built a winner for us end-users.
I plan to use the tested outdoor XNV-6080R for smaller outdoor scenes and the XND-6080RV for inside our K-12 schools. I'm excited to try the IK08 rated indoor model as it has a built-in microphone that I'd like to use for gunshot detection. Also like the (up to) 120 degree horizontal view.
Update: After discussing this thread with Exacq, they confirmed they do support H.265. It's supported only in a limited number of Wisenet cameras, and not yet the Wisenet X (which they also confirmed uses a different API).
I confirmed this with an H.265 RTSP stream from the camera, properties shown here in Exacq:
