FLIR's integrated IR PTZ, the DNZ30TL2R claims a whopping 150m (~500') IR range and HD resolution. Distances like these have historically been possible only with expensive high-end positioning systems which required expensive illuminators and motorized lenses.
We bought one of these new integrated IR models and tested it against an Axis Q6045-E, a common 1080p HD PTZ, to see how it matched up.
Inside we look at these questions:
- How far can this camera see, day and night?
- How easy or difficult is it to track subjects?
- How does it compare to standard non-IR HD PTZs?
