Hikvision Smart IP cameras are designed to fully meet all professional market requirements for efficient bandwidth and storage utilisation, as well as unparalleled image quality and customer convenience.

As video surveillance continues to incorporate IP technology into their products, security manufacturers are now considering how "SMART" technology can enrich their own product lines and strengthen product competitiveness. Hikvision is prepared to meet this latest trend. Notably, Hikvision's introduction of a professional 4-line IP camera range, which aims to revolutionise the surveillance market by offering a kit of “SMART” features, is its first answer.

"Smart is the latest concept which aims to bring video surveillance into every aspects of professional, intelligent, efficient, and convenient surveillance. Enriched with Smart technologies - such as Smart Codec, Smart Detection and Smart Control - Hikvision Smart IP cameras are specifically designed to deliver this concept to the market and convey the idea of smart security,” noted Keen Yao, International Marketing Director at Hikvision.

Smart on bandwidth and storage utilisation

Incorporated with an advanced codec algorithm, Hikvision’s 4-line smart IP cameras deliver images at a very low bit rate without compromising on image quality. Compared to traditional cameras, these Hikvision 4-line cameras can boost image quality up-to 30% when under a 2Mpbs bit rate / 720p resolution mode. This significantly minimises the system’s load and storage requirements.

4-line smart IP cameras also support ROI (Region of Interest) codec. This allows the cameras to decrease non-ROI’s image quality to save on maximum bandwidth and storage. Additionally, these regions of interest will be smartly transmitted with better detail and image quality under identical bit rate streaming conditions.

In vertically-shaped areas (such as corridors or hallways), the camera’s horizontal-shaped image may result in pixel waste. However, Hikvision 4-line smart IP cameras address this problem by utilising a "Rotate Mode," which creates a vertically-oriented video feed from the camera. This further maximises image quality while concurrently eliminating bandwidth and storage waste. As well, triple streaming is supported to perform live monitoring with up-to three independent streams.

Smart on image quality delivery

Hikvision 4-line smart IP cameras bring imaging to a new level with the help of defogging technology, high frame rate, smart IR, WDR technology, starlight-level low-light capability, and much more.

Through an image correction algorithm, defogging noticeably improves image clarity in poor weather conditions, such as rain or fog.

In order to meet various applications where image detail is critically important (such as the handling of cash and financial transactions) Hikvision's 4-line smart IP cameras offer an ultra-high frame rate of 60fps in HD or Full HD resolution. This results in detailed and excellent image quality. Meanwhile, the improved Smart IR function allows IR strength adjustment and better visibility for the specific requirements of an application.

Smart on user convenience

Hikvision 4-line smart IP cameras are equipped with various industry-leading technologies for user convenience. Of particular note is the Auto Focus feature which allows cameras to focus the image automatically and brings users maximum convenience since there is no need for them to adjust the focus when scene of surveillance changes.

These models come with Intelligent Video Analytics to detect activity by various means such as Facial Detection which enables the camera to accurately detect human faces, while Intrusion Detection helps the camera to detect moving objects within a predefined area of interest. However, both features make it possible to automatically trigger an alarm and event recording simultaneously, thereby allowing the user to take whatever proactive response they deem necessary. Audio Detection gives users another tool to analyse local sound and trigger an alarm based on these parameters. Additionally, this tool can also filter out background noise interference to help avoid false alarms.

Besides, in the event of an issue relating to storage, network connection, lens redirection, defocus, or tampering, built-in VQD (Video Quality Detection) technology allows 4-line cameras to automatically self-diagnose and trigger an alarm accordingly.

Smart solution

Hikvision's 4-line Smart IP cameras can be coupled with existing Hikvision Smart PTZ domes, storage devices, and video management software to deliver a truly vivid Smart solution for professional applications, such as casinos, banks, residential communities, airports, harbours, highways, and among others.
