Hikvision H.264+ Smart Codec powers 4K total system

Product Profile

Hikvision, the global leader in innovative video surveillance products and solutions, introduces a complete range of 4K surveillance products to provide a true ultra-high-definition video solution for real world security applications. The 4K Total System features Hikvision’s H.264+ Smart Codec, which reduces bandwidth and storage requirements by 50% compared to standard H.264 codecs while maximising video resolution with its optimised high-compression technology.

The new 4K family includes ultra-high definition network cameras and network video recorders, all equipped with a variety of Smart functions. It is ideal for applications where clear, high-resolution images and smart surveillance of large areas are required. These include city surveillance, stadiums, parking lots, and crowd management scenarios.

H.264+ Smart Codec

The launch of Hikvision’s 4K Total System comes as concerns grow about the burden placed on the transmission system and storage when CCTV cameras and NVRs lacking dedicated 4K-compatible components are installed. This is not an issue with the 4K Total System, which incorporates H.264+ optimised compression to allow users to more efficiently manage ultra-high definition video footage. With features such as background-based predictive smart encoding, enhanced noise suppression, and optimised bitrate control, Hikvision’s H.264+ compression saves bandwidth resources and decreases storage requirements. The result is a complete system designed for immediate practical use, providing customers with genuinely useful end-to-end smart high-resolution security video.

4K output advantage

As a further refinement, the Hikvision 4K NVRs support the HDMI 2.0 output interface, allowing users to display 4K video for monitoring applications. As a result, Hikvision’s 4K family offers users a true end-to-end 4K ultra-high-resolution solution, providing users with 4K monitoring, recording, and playback.

Ultra-high definition = ultra-high quality analytics

The new 4K solution, which includes 4K IP dome, bullet and box cameras along with a variety of 4K NVR models, delivers ultra-high definition (UHD) images, providing 4K resolution in real time. The high quality images also improve video analytics performance, particularly in scenes covering large areas. Limited resolution has hindered video analysis in the past, but now the additional pixels in 4K technology allow for better resolution and improved image enhancement, which in turn allow for more information to be extracted from the scene. The result is an improvement in the accuracy and quality of video analysis and better value for users.

Smart features

As a part of the Hikvision Smart product family, the new 4K products are equipped with smart features that put intelligence, efficiency, and ease-of-use at the heart of this state-of-the-art video surveillance range. SMART technologies include face detection, intrusion detection, line crossing detection, and smart focus. Smart tracking capability enables the cameras to detect any progressively moving object and follow it within the camera’s area of coverage, while Smart video analytics includes region enter/exit, object left behind/object removed, and more.
