Hikvision expands DarkFighter Ultra-Low-Light CCTV camera range
Hikvision's range of industry-leading DarkFighter ultra-low-light CCTV cameras is expanded with six new models, including bullet, box, outdoor dome and PTZ variants.
At the same time, ultra-low-light performance is also boosted with the release of the 'DarkEye' SLA lens, which offers a consistent 'Super Large Aperture' of 0.95 across the entire focal range for supreme low-light performance from close-up to maximum zoom.
Quadrupling the DarkFighter Network IP range
All six new DarkFighter models boast industry leading low-light specifications, including large 2 MP progressive scan CMOS image sensors, full HD 1080p video at up to 60 fps, triple video streams, 3D DNR and 120dB WDR.
The result is crystal-clear color images down to as low as 0.001 Lux and B/W to 0.0001 Lux for sharp color images in conditions that would defeat conventional low-light models. The eight-strong DarkFighter range now consists of two box cameras, two bullet cameras, two outdoor dome cameras and a pair of 23X network PTZ dome cameras, five of which come with vandal-proof housings.
"DarkEye" SLA (Super Large Aperture) Lens
The DarkEye SLA lens HV0733D-6MP is the latest technological advance from Hikvision and significantly enhances DarkFighter performance to unrivalled levels. Featuring IR correction and up to 6 megapixel resolution, the DarkEye SLA lens is available on both DarkFighter box cameras and features a consistent aperture of f/0.95 across the entire 7-33 mm focal length range. It means that you can operate the camera at its large aperture at all times, and at any zoom setting, for maximum low-light performance.
Smart Solution 2.0
All DarkFighter cameras feature a host of Hikvision's SMART technologies, which combine intelligence, efficiency, and ease-of-use into modern video surveillance. SMART technologies include face detection, intrusion detection, line-crossing detection and object counting that enables the camera to detect any progressively moving object and follow it within the camera's area of coverage without fault. Besides, the on-board ANPR analytics further help to detect and recognize a vehicle's license plate and send ANPR info to a Smart NVR or video management software for access management. Smart Defog and EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization) are also offered in the DarkFighter range to improve image quality in challenging conditions.
Coupled with Hikvision Smart NVR and iVMS-5200 Professional video management software, the complete Smart Solution is set to accelerate the security demands in versatile vertical markets, including commercial /industrial sector, transportation, banking and much more.
The Hikvision DarkFighter series will be showcased at the upcoming IFSEC International trade show (16-18th June 2015). Please stop by Hikvision booth Hall 4, E800 to experience the intelligent and feature-rich products!
