A key weakness of multi-imager cameras is poor low light.
While integrated IR has become dominant in cameras overall, it is still uncommon in multi-imager cameras.
But now, Vivotek has released the MS8391-EV, a 12MP multi imager model touting 30m integrated IR, one of the first cameras to include it.
We tested this new model to see how it performed against multi-imagers from Axis (Q3709-PVE) and Pelco (Optera) in full light and low light, checking image quality, infrared illumination performance, bitrates, and more.
The image below overviews the Vivotek, with competitive comparisons inside.
