Hikvision ColorVu Tech Offers Full Color Video in Complete Darkness
ColorVu cameras combine high-performance imaging sensors, advanced lenses, a large iris and on-board supplemental lighting.
CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif. — Hikvision recently introduced its ColorVu imaging technology, which is billed as providing high-resolution color images in virtually any lighting condition, including zero-light environments.
The technology is said to incorporate a combination of high-performance imaging sensors, advanced lenses, a large iris and on-board supplemental lighting. ColorVu cameras are available in PT (pan, tilt), turret and bullet indoor and outdoor configurations.
“Hikvision ColorVu technology provides users with the three features today’s security professionals demand most – high performance color surveillance imaging, cost-efficiency and reliable operation,” says John Xiao, vice president marketing, Hikvision USA. “In addition to their competitive price point, ColorVu cameras eliminate the need for additional lighting products and all of the costs associated with installation and long-term maintenance – while providing all of the inherent benefits associated with color surveillance imaging.”
ColorVu cameras are also equipped with self-adapting 3D Digital Noise Reduction (DNR) to ensure high-quality, full motion video and imaging for a wide variety of applications, according to the company. The cameras are available in 2 MP and 4 MP resolution with H.265+ video compression technology to conserve bandwidth and storage.
The latest addition to the Hikvision ColorVu camera lineup is the PT (pan, tilt) DS-2DE3A400BW-DE, which features a 3-inch 4mm fixed lens with a minimum illumination requirement of only 0.0005 lux. The camera’s advanced processing includes object detection to decipher between human and vehicular movements versus false alarm indicators such as animals, rain or falling leaves.
Additional features include a built-in microphone and speaker to deter intruders, and an IP-66 outdoor rated housing. The new ColorVu PT’s video and audio features can also be remotely accessed and controlled using Hikvision’s Hik-Connect App.
