Hikvision has been leading the security industry in imaging for years. That tradition continues with our powerful new Hikvision ColorVu Technology. ColorVu Technology enables cameras to produce colorful videos even in extremely dimly lit environments. Watch the video on the left to see how color helps to tell the true stories.
Hikvision’s industry-leading ColorVu technology captures high-quality, full-color video 24/7 so your security staff can protect people and property at night with the same sharp rendering as in daylight.
ColorVu technology’s powerful ability to capture details in low lighting emerges from three specific breakthroughs:
ColorVu-enabled cameras render vivid color images in dim light, even down to 0.0005 lux – that’s the same lighting as a moonless, starlit night. This incredible capability to intensify minimal ambient light is achieved through two advanced features:
Varifocal cameras can adapt to more scenarios by changing the camera’s focal length, making inventory management easier. Hikvision’s Varifocal Cameras with ColorVu are designed with fixed F1.0 large aperture. While your camera zooms in or out, the image brightness will be guaranteed.
Combining ColorVu technology with AcuSense, these cameras capture human & vehicle targets with vivid color. Connected to Hikvision’s back-end products, users will enjoy detailed video playback and efficient footage searches.
Models equipped with Live Guard deter trespassers with visual and auditory warnings on-site while sending notifications to users remotely. They immediately react to intrusions during events to prevent loss and provide recorded, post-event evidence. Moreover, the audio alarms can be customized in various languages for various scenarios.

Residential buildings, whether townhouses, multi-family homes, or apartments, often have several low-light areas that become potentially risky and difficult to navigate in darkness, such as walkways, stairwells, and other outdoor areas. ColorVu cameras provide unmatched surveillance where incidents or accidents occur, and illuminates areas to reduce risk and improve safety for tenants and visitors. Better quality imaging improves suspect identification when needed, providing a safer environment for residents.
Users can monitor entrances and exits as well as dimly-lit interior and exterior areas where theft or other crimes occur, such as dark hallways and walkways, dumpster areas, and loading docks. Enjoy better illumination with ColorVu cameras while they protect your employees, customers and assets, helping them to feel safe around and within your property.
Parking lots are difficult to protect for many reasons. But ColorVu uses sophisticated supplemental lighting to make parking areas easier to secure; this means there is no need for additional lighting to capture high-quality, full color images. ColorVu’s environmentally-friendly natural light will not interfere with a driver’s vision, as opposed to harsh, bright, or discolored lights. All these features reduce costs and ensure high-resolution, detailed imagery—such as the color of a person’s clothing or the color of a car—and everything is recorded for forensic review when necessary.
Strategically placed ColorVu Cameras illuminate areas with limited lighting that pose risks for accidents or other incidents such as walkways, play areas, entrances to restrooms, and exercise areas. Better evening and night time illumination keeps members of the community feeling safe and comfortable.
