Keeping it cool with our new Ultra HD 4K IP Camera

Keeping it cool with our new Ultra HD 4K IP Camera

Based on the Sony® STARVIS™ 1/2.8” CMOS 8MP Sensor (IMX415), our new 4K IP board-level camera boasts exceptional image recognition and detection capabilities. 

With true 4K resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels) at 30 frames per second, the 24M8.29NIP camera has the capability to provide four times the resolution of a Full HD camera. This camera has a very low light sensitivity (~0.01 lux) which captures more details and delivers clear images even at extremely low light or even no light conditions.

The power board includes Power over Ethernet (PoE) (44.0 – 57.0VDC ) and 12VDC. PoE on a board camera simplifies the installation process and eliminates the need for separate power cables. Additionally, PoE provides a reliable and centralized power source, ensuring continuous operation and easier maintenance of the camera system.

The dimensions of this industrial IP camera module are 42x42x 24.7 mm (1.65"x1.65"x0.97") - including the POE board. 

Enhancing performance while preventing overheating in IP Cameras

The 24M8.29NIP camera module now comes with a heat sink mount which significantly improves the heat flow. As a major change from its preceding versions, the addition of this heat sink unit ensures the module operates within the specified temperature range and prevents overheating. 

The increasing demand for more compact IP systems also rise the need for smaller cameras with enhanced performance. Increased performance leads to more power consumption, causing overheating problems in return. Heat can be a common problem for high-resolution IP cameras that work especially in demanding environments such as high-temperature industrial settings or in housed devices that run 24x7.  Ensuring optimal thermal management can be a daunting task, especially in small and compact industrial camera modules like board-level cameras. Excessive heat can cause a variety of problems, such as reducing the lifespan of the camera, affecting image quality, and even causing the device to fail.

To ensure optimal performance of our new 8MP IP camera series, we have included a high-quality heat sink unit that can effortlessly withstand ambient temperatures of up to 50°C (122°F). This addition effectively eliminates any concerns about overheating and offers a reliable solution for system designers.

FEATURES OF our 8MP Ultra HD 4K IP camera that will boost your application

The following features will unveil the potential of your 4K IP camera to be used at its full capacity, providing the best experience you get from our 24M8.29NIP camera series. 

Specifications 4K 8 MP IP Board Camera Videology-1

  1. High Resolution: With 8 million pixels, our Ultra HD 24M8.29NIP camera provides a high level of detail and clarity in images, making it ideal for applications where clear and accurate identification is important.

  2. Wide Dynamic Range and High Sensitivity: Allows the camera to capture images with greater detail in both bright and low-light conditions, resulting in better overall image quality.

  3. Triple Video Streaming: 24M8.29NIP camera series can send triple video streams simultaneously, using different types of codecs, H.264, H.264, or MPEG. Choosing the right codec can be instrumental in reducing the utilization of processor units and disk arrays as well as handling network bandwidth limitations. 

  4. Multiple Client Support: IP cameras need to provide the capability for streaming video to multiple clients. 24M8.29NIP supports up to 10 clients and both the real-time transport protocol (RTP) and the real-time streaming protocol (RTSP).

  5. Zero Configuration IP address (Zeroconf): The Zeroconf protocol supports easy camera service discovery in a LAN, eliminating manual operator intervention or manual pre-configuration.

  6. Global and Open Industry SDK: Compliant with ONVIF Profile S for video streaming and configuration, 24M8.29NIP reduces integration complexity and provides a well-documented, standardized communication protocol. This results in great time and money savings for system integrators and developers during project implementation.
