Testing IQinVision's 4 Series and PSIA Integration

Author: John Honovich, Published on Feb 02, 2010

IP camera standards are a hot topic. Determining how, when and with whom these 'standards' will work are key questions.

IQinVision was the first company to announce support for the PSIA IP camera 'standard'. With Milestone releasing support for PSIA/ONVIF, it is now possible to test PSIA integration between a VMS and IP camera.

In this test, we examine the IQ 4 Series (specifically the IQ042SI-V11) integrated with Milestone Enterprise's 7.0 VMS. The 4 series is IQinVision's 'basic' series, offering minimal advanced functionalities and JPEG only. We tested the 2MP version. The camera is designed for daytime use and does not have a mechanical cut filter.

Our key findings of the IQ 4 Series include:

  • Successful PSIA integration with no critical differences in setup nor settings
  • Low light (under 1 lux) video produced high noise and artifacts
  • Simple to setup but limited in functionality beyond streaming video

For those tracking standards developments, compare to our ONVIF integration test with LILIN's PTZ. For those comparing megapixel cameras, compare to our 9 other megapixel test results.
