Integrated IR has become a common solution for low light problems, but resolutions have remained relatively low, usually 1080p and below. Now, 5MP bullet cameras have become common, but this brings up two key new questions:
- Does this increase in resolution come with a practical gain in performance at night?
- Will this jump in pixels kill my bandwidth and storage?
To find out, we tested Pelco's new Sarix IBP519-ER [link no longer available], a 5 megapixel integrated IR bullet claiming 25m illumination range.
