Hanwha Techwin's Multi-Sensor Camera
Wins Gold in the 2018 ‘ASTORS’
Homeland Security Awards
Hanwha Techwin, a leading global security company, recently announced that one of its most
advanced multi-directional cameras 'PNM-9000VQ', has been awarded the Gold in 2018 ‘ASTORS’
Homeland Security Awards for Best IP Video Surveillance Solution.
The annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards – American Security Today’s prestigious security awards ceremon –
honors distinguished government and vendor solutions that deliver enhanced values, benefits and
intelligence to users while highlighting the most advanced and progressive market security solutions
Hanwha Techwin’s Gold award-winning ‘PNM-9000VQ’ camera has four sensors in one camera with
selectable re-positional 2MP/5MP lenses, making simultaneous 360° monitoring possible while
eliminating any blind spots. This makes the device ideal for monitoring large areas such as bustling
shopping mall entrances, lobbies and airports.
While utilizing four sensors, the camera requires a single IP address and one VMS license, reducing
installation, service, and support cost and ultimately benefiting its users. Its powerful multi-streaming
performance adds extra flexibility to route streams to multiple destinations at different resolutions.
It also supports high frame-rates (60/30fps) per sensor and true 150dB WDR through the Wisenet 5
chipset integrated with Hanwha Techwin’s innovative core technology, enabling crystal-clear
monitoring and intelligent image analysis for each channel.
Additionally, WiseStream II, Hanwha Techwin’s unique video compression technology, dynamically
controls encoding, balancing quality, and compression according to movement in the image. When
combined with H.265 compression, the bandwidth efficiency can be improved by up to 75%
compared to current H.264 technology. By incorporating such pioneering technology into the
‘PNM-9000VQ,’ it has received wide attention and acclaim from the industry associates of the world
since its release last year, with the US leading the praise.
A source at Hanwha Techwin said, “It is truly an honor to receive such a highly-sought-after award,
especially as it recognizes the world’s leading security solutions using a comprehensive assessment
of technical innovation, interoperability, and overall impact to the industry.” and went on to promise
further technological enhancement in the future to build a strong position in the global video
