New from Hikvision are its EXIR Bullet network cameras, aimed at homes, offices and small-to-medium enterprises. The DS-2CD2T series of 2- and 3-Megapixel cameras feature LED light sources and a rectangular lens for HD formatting and now come with Infrared Gain Glass.
The DS-2CD2T series also features 3D DNR and DWDR (wide dynamic range) image enhancement, dual video streams, and Power over Ethernet.
Both the 2 and 3-Megapixel DS-2CD2T series cameras use specially coated Infrared Gain Glass for improved infrared light transmittance. This delivers clearer images and is the Chinese makers say suited to applications that require high resolution images to be captured in low-light. With an IR range of up to 80 metres from its four EXIR LEDs, the DS-2CD2T-I8 is aimed at perimeter intrusion detection, especially at night.
The DS-2CD2T series also incorporates Hikvision’s EXIR infrared array to provide illumination in any low- or zero-light area, the makers say. The light source provides up to 30 per cent more illumination efficiency compared to other LEDs, it is claimed, and a rectangular lens offers uniform scene illumination and HD formatting.
The DS-2CD2T series Network Bullet EXIR cameras are part of the company’s Easy IP solution, boasting viewing with the Hikvision Plug & Play NVR and video surveillance software.
Installation is a two-step process: plug the camera(s) into the NVRs PoE port(s), then connect the monitor and you’re ready, without IP address forwarding. You can watch and play live video any time and anywhere. Users just need to download the Hikvision EZVIZ smartphone app for free, by scanning the QR code on the back of the camera through EZVIZ app, for live video viewing and playback over the internet remotely.
