As a sales person for a distributor of Uniview, I didn't even know the LR3 existed. We have always sold the SR3. At one point the SR3 was plastic but too many of our clients complained and we brought in the SR3-M. The new IPC3615 is starlight with IP67.
Uniview has informed us that the IPC3614LR3-PF28 is discontinued and replaced with the IPC3614LR3-PF28D, which uses a sealed IP67 housing, which was the data sheet which listed IP rating linked in the report.
We've updated the link to the correct older model. The IPC3614LR3 non -D model correctly listed no IP rating on its specs.
Roberto, welcome to IPVM and thanks for the feedback.
Aaron Jao, Uniview's Global marketing director reached out to after the test and made no mention of such phase-out.
Now, since you are in South Africa, maybe these are being phased out in your region. In the US, these are current models bought through an authorized Uniview distributor.
All the manufacturers we are testing 4MP cameras for, also have 5MP or 6MP or 4K cameras, etc. The reason we are testing 4MP cameras in this series is that 4MP is increasingly become the 'budget' choice for resolution.
We are happy to continue taking feedback and if there are specific Uniview models you want us to test, please share.
In several 2017 camera releases, multiple manufacturers such asAxis,Bosch, and Hikvision now use 16:9 5MP resolution (3072x1728) instead of 4:3 2592x1944, as shown in the datasheet of theAxis P1367below:
Additionally, there is a second, different 5MP 16:9 resolution, 2944x1656, used by Hikvision on some models:
That's interesting.Didn't notice it.But are you sure it's UNV's choice?.We work with them and so far all the 5 MP testing products thay've sent to us are 2592x1944 that makes a 4:3 ratio.Also al the 5 MP Hikvision model's i've been using so far (moslty analog TVI) are 4:3
