  • PPF Test - Getting High Quality Surveillance Video
    ?q=80&t=fit&url=ipvm uploads.s3.amazonaws.com%2fuploads%2fembedded image%2fba713bb9faf71185749039e139ccaab0dfc48a377ed9eebf8051950eb50bdd1d%2f5bab5c36 4d59 4732 84f5 61dd20c2f559
    Megapixel cameras foster hope for much higher quality surveillance video but how much more and in what conditions? In this report, we answer these questions in depth based on extensive testing. The most aggressive marketing claims suggest a single megapixel camera is equals 95 CCTV cameras. Does that mean you could literally replace 95 CCTV cam...

    ...to its much lower pixel density (PPF / PPM), a result of its rotated imagers compared to other multi-imager models (e.g., the Axis pixel density was 66% greater than Hikvision). This reduction outweighed the potential increases of the camera's larger imagers and Darkfighter super low light features...

  • Shootout: 4K vs PTZ Cameras
    ?q=80&t=fit&url=ipvm uploads.s3.amazonaws.com%2fuploads%2fembedded image%2ff810aa8b312ab400d7c98c98cec649127db2cb84fcb5196ea1d403e4736d9526%2f023a5bea 19cd 46bf af91 c60035de8414
    .... Daytime Performance Beginning at close range (~30' from cameras), PPF is high in both the 4K, 5MP, and HD PTZ models, with solid details of the subject and chart. At this range even the SD Canon PTZ provides over 45 PPF and some details of our subject. Note that the Axis P1428-E is moderately blurry...

  • A Major Flaw in Long Lenses and PTZs Found
    ...Theoretically, long lenses should let you capture faces and license plates very far away. For example, over 900 feet away from a 1080p camera one should get over 40ppf from a 100mm lens. But how well does this work in practice? In this test, we took 3 long lens cameras, including: An Axis...

    ...The Speco Ultra Intensifier actually uses an F0.94 lens, and we did not observe any practical depth of field issues.
