Hikvision

Hikvision, a supplier of innovative video surveillance products and solutions, has created the next level of night surveillance with the latest upgrade of its Darkfighter technology – the DarkfighterX series. The technology can provide colourful, sharp images right down to the lowest light levels – in fact to 0.001 lux.

Taking inspiration from the human eye

This series takes colour to the max by taking inspiration from the way the human eye works. Eyes use different cells to collect colour and brightness information, which the brain then merges. The DarkfighterX cameras take information from an IR sensor (for brightness) and information from a visible light sensor (for colour) and combines them to provide the best of both worlds – one bright full-colour image.

Traditional cameras could either provide bright images that were blurry, or images in monochrome. The new technology seamlessly melds the two, so neither will be an issue for image quality again.

 The cutting-edge of security technology

It’s a fact that 70% of crimes happen at night, but with DarkfighterX, that’s no problem”, says Peter Guan, Hikvision’s Channel Sales Director. “Faces are sharper and easier to recognise and the surroundings much clearer to see, even in the lowest light. All of this makes images much more valuable for evidence collecting and case solving.”

The DarkfighterX series includes a PTZ and bullet camera. Both come with optical defog, 25X optical zoom, 2MP resolution and smart detection. They also boast the new H.265+ codec and are weatherproof to IP66 standard.

They are at the cutting-edge of security technology and are particularly useful in applications that require 24h full-colour images, such as cities; streets, squares and parks, outdoors; rivers and forests, and transportation; railways and ports.
