How Much Do You Know About Dahua PTZ Cameras?

First you are probably asking what is a PTZ camera? A PTZ camera is a very useful camera because they can pan, tilt, and zoom, but some higher end models also have innovative features that take your security system to the next level.

True or False: IR illumination is always ineffective on PTZs because the zoom distance far exceeds the capability of integrated IR system.

False. Zoom priority mode, available with select Dahua PTZs, provides optimal IR coverage at any zoom setting. The camera has different sets of integrated IR illuminators that turn on and off according to whether the camera is in wide angle mode or zoomed in. This gives you even illumination at wide angles and reduced power at narrow angles.

Which feature controls the pan-tilt-zoom actions of the camera to automatically track a target in motion?

Autotracking. This feature, available on Dahua’s 5” and above AI PTZ cameras, lets the PTZ detect a moving target and automatically follow it throughout the camera’s range of motion. This capability can be further enhanced by activating the IVS feature on the PTZ, which will trigger it to track a target as it crosses a particular area of demarcation.

What does EIS stand for and what does it do?

Electronic Image Stabilization counteracts some of the vibration – and the accompanying blurring – inherent to a windy environment or a location with traffic nearby. EIS provides a steadier field of view and expands the mounting options, since the PTZ can then be installed on a pole or in a hanging pendant formation without being unduly affected by vibration. Plus, with less camera movement, you save on bandwidth and storage space!

What’s more, other PTZ cameras are also equipped with OIS or Optical Image Stabilization. This hardware solution doesn’t require image cropping as it uses full-sensor readout to capture images. It helps reduce image distortion and produces more natural videos that are significantly better than EIS.
