Dahua IPC HDBW823EP-Z-SL is a 2MP Starlight, anti-corrosion dome
Dahua IPC HDBW823EP-Z-SL is a 2MP Starlight, anti-corrosion dome

DAHUA'S IPC HDBW823EP-Z-SL is a 2MP Starlight, anti-corrosion dome featuring a 1/1.9-inch 2MP progressive scan CMOS sensor, 120dB of WDR capability, 60ips at 1080p, a 4.1-16.4mm motorised lens, 50m of IR, IP67 and IK10 rating and H.264 and H.265 compression options. Performance matches the feature set.

In the first part of the test, I have the camera locked in colour and colour rendition, which was solid all afternoon, hangs together at 7 lux in low pressure sodium streetlights. Under the low-pressure lights colours tends to yellow orange but the next light up seems to be LED and the colours are very true without false colour. At one point out here, a car headlight catches the camera and there’s noticeable blooming but control of blooming is generally, very good.  


We are at 7 lux, locked in colour mode

TETHERED CyPhy Works drones were deployed at the Boston Marathon to assist the security team in protecting runners and spectators.

The drones remained aloft for the entire race and were used to scan crowds and detect threats. They flew to 130m and their Sony cameras captured live video feeds which were transmitted in real time to operators at the MEMA control centre. Operators were able to zoom in, zoom out and replay video, as well as adjusting the position of drones.

The Persistent Aerial Reconnaissance Communications (PARC) drones are built by Danvers, Mass.-based CyPhy Works and were provided at no cost to the Boston Marathon, according to the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA).
