Hikvision has been marketing ColorVu aggressively. Now, Hikvision domestic rival Uniview (UNV) is offering aggressive pricing for their new rival white light LED camera.
We bought and tested Uniview's super low-cost white light illuminator model, the Uniview IPC242E-WH-PF40-C-DT to see how it performs versus recent white light competitive models from AVTech and Hikvision. We examine:
- How well does image quality compare in full light (~300 lux), low light (~2 lux), and dark (~0.02 lux) scenes?
- How do these Uniview color low light cameras compare to cameras tested in our Color Low Light Mega Shootout?
- How do image details compare with and without white light illumination?
- How does it perform in WDR scenes?
- How well does it integrate to common VMSes?
