Did you know it was possible to capture daytime-quality video images in the dark? Thanks to Hikvision’s ColorVu technology, companies can record detailed chromatic images in low or even zero lighting, for reliable surveillance around the clock.
The color of an intruder’s outfit. The shade of the perpetrator’s car. When it comes to tackling crime, being able to record accurate color video often captures vital evidence that can transform the progress of an investigation.
However, in dark locations or when night falls, the vast majority of conventional surveillance cameras lose their ability to render color, relying instead on stark supplementary lighting or infra-red to mimic the effects of day.
The problem is, this completely changes the quality and accuracy of the color image, which makes it far less reliable for security purposes.
The solution: Hikvision’s ColorVu technology
Hikvision ColorVu Cameras are purpose-built to capture reliable, detailed chromatic video images in even the darkest of settings. This powerful ability comes from two market-leading capabilities that were first developed by Hikvision and our technology partners, and which can only be found together in our cameras: advanced lenses, and high sensitivity sensors.
Unlike conventional lenses, ColorVu lenses are equipped with a super-aperture, reaching up to F1.0. This technology allows four times more light to enter the lens than a conventional camera with F2.0, for optimized image brightness.
