Hikvision has added six models to its range of DarkFighter low-light CCTV cameras: including bullet, box, outdoor dome and PTZ variants. At the same time, low-light performance is also boosted with the release of the ‘DarkEye’ SLA lens, which offers a consistent ‘Super Large Aperture’ of 0.95 across the entire focal range for low-light performance from close-up to maximum zoom, the company adds.
All six new models offer large 2 MP progressive scan CMOS image sensors, full HD 1080p video at up to 60 frames per second (fps), triple video streams, 3D DNR (digital noise reduction) and 120dB WDR (wide dynamic range). The result is clear colour images down to as low as 0.001 Lux and B/W to 0.0001 Lux for colour images in conditions that would defeat conventional low-light models, according to the firm. The eight-strong DarkFighter range now consists of two box cameras, two bullets, two outdoor domes and a pair of 23x network PTZ domes, five of which come with vandal-proof housings.
The DarkEye SLA lens HV0733D-6MP is the latest from Hikvision. Featuring IR correction and up to 6 megapixel resolution, the lens is available on both DarkFighter box cameras and features a consistent aperture of f/0.95 across the entire 7-33 mm focal length range. It means that you can operate the camera at its large aperture at all times, and at any zoom setting.
All DarkFighter cameras feature Hikvision’s SMART technologies, which include face detection, intrusion detection, line-crossing detection and object counting that enables the camera to detect any progressively moving object and follow it within the camera’s area of coverage. Besides, the on-board ANPR analytics further help to detect and recognise a vehicle’s number plate and send ANPR info to a Smart NVR or video management software for access management. Smart Defog and EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization) are also offered in the range for image quality in challenging conditions.
Coupled with Hikvision Smart NVR and iVMS-5200 Professional video management software, the complete Smart Solution is set to accelerate the security demands in versatile vertical markets, including commercial /industrial sector, transportation, banking and much more.
The Hikvision DarkFighter series will be showcased at the upcoming IFSEC International trade show (June 16 to 18, 2015) in the Hikvision booth Hall 4, E800.
