What’s ColorVu Technology?

When it comes to ensuring security and safety, seeing every detail is critical – especially in low light conditions.

 

Hikvision’s industry-leading ColorVu technology captures high-quality, full-color video 24/7 which enables businesses and homeowners to protect people and property at night with the same sharp rendering as in daylight.

 

For a broad range of security scenarios, ColorVu technology empowers a diverse set of products and solutions to meet users’ growing needs. Read on to learn more. 

How does ColorVu technology work?

ColorVu technology’s powerful ability to capture details in low lighting emerges from three specific breakthroughs:

What does ColorVu make possible?

The whole scene in vivid color

Hikvision’s panoramic cameras with ColorVu harness pioneering pixel-level image registration technology with Hikvision’s image fusion algorithm to stitch together a 180-degree horizontal field of view, delivering brilliant and seamless panoramas with more lively details. Wide-area security footage helps improve situational awareness and reduces the number of cameras required for comprehensive monitoring, aiding cost efficiency.

Zoom in with vivid color

Varifocal cameras adapt to various scenarios by changing the camera’s focal length. Hikvision’s Varifocal Cameras with ColorVu are designed with a large, fixed F1.0 aperture, which guarantees image brightness while the camera zooms in or out. 

Capture richer, more colorful details

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:

 

  • F1.0 Super Aperture – Capturing as much light as possible for the sensor
  • 1/1.2” Large Sensor – Maximizing the use of available light
