Hikvision is proud to announce the release of its EXIR infrared technology for Hikvision network cameras. Compared to conventional IR network cameras, Hikvision’s high-performance EXIR series delivers the most advanced levels of night-time surveillance available on the market today – with best-in-breed illuminators for any zero-dark environment, indoors or out.

Below are some of the benefits that EXIR technology brings:

1. Highly efficient light source and enhanced LED light strength:

By employing the most advanced thin-film, light-emitting technology, Hikvision’s EXIR allows an up-to 30% increase in illuminant efficiency over traditional LED array technology. Furthermore, compared to a traditional light extraction of 750mV, EXIR offers 1050mV, resulting in stronger light for long-range visibility usage.

2. Evolutionary rectangular-shaped lenses for better light usage:

To make the most out of IR LED light, Hikvision EXIR allows cameras to produce LED light in the form of a rectangle in order to fit a screen’s normal size (4:3 or 16:9). This additionally helps improve LED utilisation efficiency and reduce light pollution in the surrounding environment.

3. Better luminance uniformity:

Hikvision’s EXIR technology permits uniform IR illumination. This eliminates traditional LED lens issues, such as over-exposure at the centre of images, and darker areas at corners.

In addition, excellent heat dissipation, longer lifespan, and greater energy savings are but a few of the benefits that Hikvision EXIR brings.

Models available with EXIR technology:

DS-2CD2212-I (1.3MP) / DS-2CD2232-I (3.0MP) EXIR Bullet Camera

DS-2CD2312-I (1.3MP) / DS-2CD2332-I (3.0MP) EXIR Turret Camera
