See more with Hikvision's expanded 6MP Ultra HD SMART IP Camera Series
Hikvision's SMART IP camera range is boosted with four newly added 6 megapixel Ultra HD camera series that provide a total resolution of 3072 x 2048 at full frame rate to deliver spectacular images.
This immense field of view means that one 6MP camera covers an area usually requiring several conventional cameras.
Like the DS-2CD4065F-(A) SMART IP box camera that launched last year, all four of the new models feature industry-leading specifications and are powered by Hikvision's signature SMART technology. This includes SMART Codec, SMART Focus, SMART IR, SMART Facial Recognition, SMART Line Crossing Detection, SMART Voice Recognition and SMART License Plate recognition, which helps to deliver a unique smart experience of unparalleled image quality and customer convenience.
See more with Full Frame Rate in real-time
Unlike the majority of Full HD cameras that can only transmit a 2 megapixel image (1920 x 1080) at their full frame rate, all the Hikvision 6MP SMART IP cameras are capable of transmitting a full 3072 x 2048 6 megapixel image, even at full frame rate. This capability will be especially well suited to applications requiring highly detailed surveillance, capturing the fine detail of license plates, clothing and faces to help law enforcement and monitoring cash handling areas, for instance.
The 6MP resolution combined with user-defined ROI's and SMART detection technology also means a single camera from this new family could monitor an entire area that would previously have required a group of low resolution units. At the same time, the ultra-low light capability and Smart IR built into the new range adjusts IR strength to maximize image quality in less than ideal lighting conditions. Finally, all four cameras are capable of streaming three simultaneous and independent HD video streams.
Smart Solution 2.0
The 6MP IP cameras deliver a complete Smart Solution when combined with Hikvision Smart NVR and comprehensive video management software. With front-end cameras providing Smart Detection, Backend Device for Smart Playback/backup and video management software for Smart management, Hikvision Smart range combines intelligence, efficiency, and ease-of-use into modern video surveillance, and provides maximum security efficiency for operations and post-event investigations etc.
Expanding Customer Choice
"As the global CCTV market continues to move towards HD as the de facto standard, Hikvision is leading the way towards an HD+ future with the 6MP SMART IP family," says Keen Yao, International Marketing Director at Hikvision. "Their enhanced imaging capabilities demonstrate the cutting-edge that our investment in R&D brings to customers worldwide."
