Hikvision, the leading supplier of innovative video security products and solutions, has won the PSI Premier Awards ‘CCTV Product of The Year’ for the third year running.
The Hikvision product honoured this year was the PanoVu Mini Series IR Network PTZ Camera (DS-2PT3326IZ-DE3), which integrates four cameras into one to provide both panoramic video images for general observation or detection, and close-ups of any areas where more detail is required.
More than 1,000 video security professionals can’t be wrong
The Hikvision DS-2PT3326IZ-DE3 was chosen by PSI readers – mostly video security systems designers and installers – who voted on the PSI website. With more than 1,000 video security professionals voting each year, PSI’s CCTV Product of the Year category is strongly contested, making Hikvision’s achievement even more gratifying.
Gary Harmer, Sales Director for Hikvision UK & Ireland, said, “Thanks to everyone who voted for Hikvision and to PSI for running and hosting the awards. We’re constantly innovating to create video security products that provide installers and end customers high performance, industry leading features, and excellent value for money. With a keen balance of wide-angle video, close-up footage, and 3D positioning, the DS-2PT3326IZ-DE3 offers all of these benefits – a fact that was recognised by PSI’s readers this year.”
The features behind the award
The DS-2PT3326IZ-DE3 offers a range of innovative technology features that are likely to have appealed to PSI’s informed readership. These include 3x fixed lenses that capture panoramic views and 1x central PTZ for capturing more zoomed in views, which collectively support both wide-angle and close-up video. All cameras that are integrated into the product feature crystal-clear video imaging.
In addition to these features, the Hikvision DS-2PT3326IZ-DE3 provides a range of industry leading security features that installers and customers value. These include user authentication and IP address filtering, and protection against voltage surges.
Finally, but of equal importance, the Hikvision DS-2PT3326IZ-DE3 supports highly efficient audio and video compression. This helps customers minimise their data transmission and storage costs, and lower their overall OPEX.

About PSI Premier Award
Rather than take the opinions of a panel of industry judges, the PSI Premier Awards seeks its list of finalists, and ultimately its winners, from the people who buy and install security equipment. Because of this, the Awards are genuine notices of approval from the security industry. This year saw over 3,000 voters take part in the campaign. Seven categories covered the best of CCTV, intruder alarms, access control, software, communications, fire safety, distribution and innovation.
