The PanoVu series is designed for large-scale security monitoring
applications such as stadiums, city centres, and airports

Hikvision, supplier of innovative video surveillance products and solutions, introduces its new PanoVu Series Panoramic Cameras. The cameras provide 180- and 360-degree, distortion-free, ultra-high-definition video, seamlessly integrating video from multiple sensors in one unit. Add to this the PanoVu's powerful Smart Tracking abilities, linkage to PTZ and zooming into images at up to 36x optical and 16x digital, its user-friendly installation and configuration, and its ultra-low light performance, and the result is the best equipped high-end panoramic solution on the market.

Powerful all-in-one design

Designed for large-scale security monitoring applications such as stadiums, city centres, airports and parking lots, the PanoVu series allows users to replace multiple cameras with one multi-sensor unit - curtailing costs and reducing technical complexity. The traditional surveillance solution for this type of large 180- or 360-degree scene would require several cameras and server-level video stitching software to blend the images and create a single panoramic picture. Hikvision's PanoVu Series is an all-in-one solution which integrates multiple sensors into the one unit, eliminating the need for video stitching software.

The PanoVu Cameras' all-in-one design allows only one Ethernet and one power supply cable, providing for easy installation and simple configuration

The PanoVu Cameras' all-in-one design allows only one Ethernet and one power supply cable, providing for easy installation and simple configuration. The cameras have also been designed to offer easy preview images to further aid in set-up, and to dramatically reduce maintenance times and costs.

Superior low light performance

Hikvision's low-light colour-imaging leads the industry in performance, and the PanoVu Series Cameras are no exception. The units all incorporate Hikvision's DarkEye super-large aperture lens, sharing the same ultra-low-light performance with Hikvision's DarkFighter Series. They are able to capture highly detailed, high resolution colour images in as little light as 0.002 Lux, meaning around-the-clock, 360-degree monitoring is available - critical for high-risk locations like open public spaces in city centres.

Smart tracking and smart functions

Smart Tracking means the PanoVu Cameras support a link to an additional PTZ tracking camera, enabling PanoVu's powerful zoom capabilities to magnify tiny details in the panoramic image. Smart Tracking allows the simultaneous tracking of multiple targets, in both auto and manual tracking modes. The cameras also feature a wide range of Smart functions including intrusion detection, line crossing detection, and region entrance and exit detection.

Application-specific models

The PanoVu Series Cameras are available in 8 MP, 180-degree and 16 MP, 360-degree variants, allowing users to select the ideal model for their specific surveillance application. The 16 MP 360-degree models use 8 x 1/1.9" Progressive Scan CMOS sensors to create their panoramic images, while the 8 MP models incorporate four sensors to generate their 180-degree images. All of the PanoVu Series Cameras are IP66-rated for use in a wide variety of weather conditions and applications.
