Hikvision has added to its SMART IP camera range with four 6 megapixel Ultra HD cameras. These products provide a total resolution of 3072 x 2048 at full frame rate. This field of view means that one 6MP camera covers an area usually requiring several conventional cameras, the Chinese makers say.
Like the DS-2CD4065F-(A) SMART IP box camera, launched last year, all four of the new models are powered by Hikvision’s signature SMART technology. This includes SMART Codec, SMART Focus, SMART IR, SMART Facial Recognition, SMART Line Crossing Detection, SMART Voice Recognition and SMART License Plate recognition.
Unlike the majority of Full HD cameras that can only transmit a 2 megapixel image (1920 x 1080) at their full frame rate, all these 6MP SMART IP cameras can transmit a full 3072 x 2048 6 megapixel image, even at full frame rate. This will be well suited the company says to applications requiring detailed surveillance, capturing the detail of license plates, clothing and faces to monitor cash handling, for instance.
The 6MP resolution with user-defined regions of interest (ROIs) and SMART detection also means a single camera from this new family could monitor an entire area that would previously have required a group of low resolution units, the makers add. At the same time, the ultra-low light capability and Smart IR built into the new range adjusts infra-red to maximize image quality in less than ideal lighting. Finally, all four cameras are capable of streaming three simultaneous and independent HD video streams.
The 6MP IP cameras can be combined with Hikvision Smart NVR and video management software.
Keen Yao, International Marketing Director at Hikvision, says: “As the global CCTV market continues to move towards HD as the de facto standard, Hikvision is leading the way towards an HD+ future with the 6MP SMART IP family. Their enhanced imaging capabilities demonstrate the cutting-edge that our investment in R&D brings to customers worldwide.”
