Hikvision launches Smart IP Series for higher resolution and improved low light functionality
Hikvision, the world’s leading supplier of innovative video surveillance products and solutions, 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
- 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+.”
