dome camera launch

Hanwha Techwin launches Wisenet Q Flateye IR dome cameras for humid environments

Hanwha Techwin has released a pair of Wisenet Flateye IR dome cameras designed for high humidity environments where condensation creates problems for conventional cameras.

Part of the Wisenet Q series, the cameras have a flat surface cover on the lens front rather than the dome cover. This reduces IR diffused reflection caused by moisture and the compromise of image quality caused by scratches that typically appear on dome covers.

There’s a two megapixel model – the Wisenet QNE-6080RV – and four megapixel version: QNE-7080RV.


Designed to perform well in high-humidity environments like industrial or food processing plants.


  • Built-in IR functionality means objects can be recognised at night up to a distance of 30 metres
  • 3.1x (3.2-10mm) motorised varifocal lens for wide-angle monitoring
  • Defocus detection generates alerts when camera is out of focus
  • ‘defogging’ corrects blurry images captured in foggy conditions
  • Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) performs at up to 150dB to accurately produce images in scenes with both very bright and very dark areas appearing simultaneously
  • Lens Distortion Correction (LDC) compensates for image distortion that sometimes arises with wide angle lenses
  • Hallway View feature designed for monitoring narrow vertical areas like corridors, tunnels and aisles. Reduces bandwidth and storage requirements

Hanwha Techwin says

“These new models have been introduced to provide a highly effective and robust solution for our end-user clients who require high definition cameras to operate effectively in what may be challenging environmental conditions, such as industrial or food processing plants,” said Uri Guterman, head of product & marketing for Hanwha Techwin Europe.

“Installers will also benefit from having to spend less time on site as there is no need to initially remove and then mount a dome cap during the installation process.”
