While security camera manufacturers continue to seek simple technical functions to meet customers’ needs, the user flexibility for their own cameras offers a larger jump into higher product value. Hikvision recently introduced two vari-focal models into its PICADIS analogue camera family -- the DS-2CE15C2P(N)-VFIR3 720TVL IR Bullet camera and DS-2CE55C2P(N)-VFIR3 720TVL IR Dome camera, which are equipped with a 2.8mm~12mm adjustable lens allowing these models to operate at given focal distances to best suit a particular field of view.

New look for Vari-Focal

Of particular note is the DS-2CE15C2P(N)-VFIR3 IR bullet camera's incorporation of unique product design for focusing and zooming. Compared to traditional vari-focal models (which require users to use a screwdriver for focus and zoom adjustment), the DS-2CE15C2P(N)-VFIR3 is equipped with a detachable “Focus & Zoom Tool” to simplify these cumbersome steps. Users need only remove the cover from the camera and simply plug one end in until the desired zoom and clarity is achieved. It’s this easy! Moreover, the compact size and inconspicuous appearance of the “Focus & Zoom Tool” provides an additional discreet surveillance.

Excellent image delivery

The most noteworthy feature of Hikvision 720TVL cameras series is the 1.3MP (1280x960) image sensor incorporated into the cameras. This offers a detailed image quality of real 720TVL resolution. Both the DS-2CE15C2P(N)-VFIR3 and DS-2CE55C2P(N)-VFIR3 camera models also share the majority of features with Hikvision's previously released 720TVL PICADIS models. These features, such as ultra-high resolution, High Dynamic Range, Adaptive Local Tone Mapping, and excellent low-light performance, are optimised for imaging performance in varying lighting conditions.

Additionally, these two models are available in both colour and true day/night variants. Equipped with enhanced IR LEDs, the two cameras allow up-to 40m of vantage in complete darkness. Smart IR is supported to further address overexposure issues when the object draws closer to the camera.

960H solution

While Hikvision's 720TVL PICADIS cameras provide a clearer video option, the benefits of 960H technology is most fully realised in conjunction with Hikvision’s excellent line of DVR products. Pairing Hikvision’s WD1 embedded DVRs with the 720TVL analog camera series creates a truly vivid 960H world!
