Hikvision launches Smart IP Series for higher resolution and improved low light functionality


Hikvision has launched its new Smart IP 3.0 series of cameras (DS-2CD5A46G0-IZ), upgrading various functions, including higher resolution (up to 12MP) and expanded DarkFighter technology.


The series delivers DarkFighter technology throughout – with most cameras able to give clear images even down to 0.01 lux. The series also includes a DarkFighterX camera, which deliver colourful, bright images even to 0.001 lux. 


The cameras are also armed with a number of smart functions to deliver a more intelligent surveillance system, including: counting instances of line crossing, audio exception, defocused images, face detection, scene change detection and region entrance/exit. 


New housings, protected up to IP67/IK10 standards, make the products even more robust and effective. This includes anti-corrosion paint on products that needs to perform in bad weather or coastal scenarios, tested to NEMA level III standard. The dome cameras in the series are fitted with Anti-IR reflection bubbles, which reduces the blurring caused by dust and water on the lens reflecting the IR light back into the lens.


Other features include:
-    Longer focal length for wider coverage
-    120dB/140dB WDR
-    H.265+
-    IR range up to 30/50m (up to 100m on DarkFighterX camera (DS-2CD5028G0)
-    Five streams – for recording, mobile phone access, preview function and third party integration.


The Smart Series has a wide range of applications from entrances and buildings to roads. Installers will appreciate the bracket and socket designs which make installation easier – including integrated hidden junction boxes, pluggable interfaces and a single screw for the pan, tilt and rotation lock (previous three screw configuration).


Peter Guan, Channel Sales and Marketing Director at Hikvision Europe, says: “We are constantly improving our products to make them even more relevant to the needs of our customers. The higher resolution Smart IP Series has more of the ground-breaking technology developed by our 10,000-strong R&D department, like DarkFighter technology and H.265+.”
