Hikvision is set to extend its PICADIS analogue product line with this new, latest offering: the DS-2CE15F5P(N)-VFIR3 720TVL Vari-focal IR Bullet Camera and the DS-2CE55F5P(N)-VFIR3 720TVL Vari-focal IR Dome Camera. Both of these models are aimed to set new standards for both image quality and low-light surveillance. These cutting-edge cameras are designed specifically to capture superior crystal-clear color images in extreme, low-light conditions. Both feature a 1/3” 1.3 MP PICADIS II image sensor and Hikvision’s 3D DNR (Digital Noise Reduction) technology.

An enhanced sensor for superior image performance

Similar to previous vari-focal PICADIS analog cameras, these two new models - the DS-2CE15F5P(N)-VFIR3 720TVL Vari-focal IR Bullet Camera and the DS-2CE55F5P(N)-VFIR3 720TVL Vari-focal IR Dome Camera - are now equipped with several new, advanced features. Among these improvements, the most noteworthy is this addition of Hikvision’s 1/3” 1.3 Mega PICADIS II image sensor. This sensor was specifically designed to be utilised along with Hikvision industry-leading 3D DNR (Digital Noise Reduction) technology to secure higher image quality under challenging lighting circumstances. Ultimately, this improvement results in unparalleled visibility in extremely bright and dark environments and provides a performance that easily surpasses conventional analogue cameras.

OSD Menu Control with an UTC (Up-the-Coax) advantage

This new camera line of is equipped with a BNC connector to transfer the video signal. When compared to conventional analogue cameras, this feature provides remote control of the camera’s OSD from the terminal (such as a computer monitor in the control room) to the camera, and vice-versa. This also facilitates faster and easier camera management, allowing for higher precision and control over camera functionality and imaging settings/adjustments from the monitoring room. The result is a substantial savings in configuration time and money.

Moreover, an IP66 rating protects against elements, such as rain and dust, making both cameras ideal choices for almost any application and installation – especially for those that are outdoors. Both new models are available in grey and white colour schemes.
