HikVision Terminologies



HikVision Terminologies

Have you ever wondered what some terminologies mean when we’re talking about HikVision products and features?

Why not take a look at our guide into what HikVision are talking about when it comes to these deciphering these terminologies:

What is HikVision ColorVu technology?

HikVision’s industry-leading ColorVu technology enables quality full-colour videos 24/7 so that it can view details at night the same way as they look in daylight. ColorVu technology’s powerful ability to capture details in low lighting comes from three specific breakthroughs:

  • Advanced hardware
  • Cutting-edge image processing
  • Reliable quality

What is HikVision ColorVu+X Technology?

HikVision’s ColorVu technology helps users protect people and property by capturing high-quality, full-colour video 24/7 with the same sharp rendering at night time as in daylight. Now, combine ColorVu with other Hikvision’s advanced technologies shown below to create: ColorVu + "another HikVision technology", hence 'ColorVu + X'.

ColorVu + Panoramic

Panoramic cameras that use integrated ColorVu technology to provide vivid and full-colour video imaging for a wide field of view in light conditions as low as 0.0005 lux: nearly total darkness.

ColorVu + Varifocal

Hikvision’s Varifocal Cameras with ColorVu are designed with a fixed F1.0 large aperture, which guarantees image brightness while the camera zooms in or out.

ColorVu + 4K

4K, also called 4K resolution, refers to a horizontal display resolution of approximately 4,000 pixels. With up to four times higher resolution than standard HDTV 1080p resolution.

ColorVu + Live Guard

Models equipped with Live Guard deter trespassers with visual and auditory warnings while sending notifications to users remotely. 

ColorVu + Deep Learning

AcuSense-powered Motion Detection 2.0 distinguishes human beings and vehicles from other objects in any given environment, focusing on real security threats, and enables efficient video searches.

Cameras powered by these technologies render clear imaging with vivid details for video evidence, improved alarm accuracy for real security threats, and video search efficiency. Versatile products and solutions are introduced with optimised performance to tackle more common security concerns in residences, office buildings, parking lots and many more.

What is HikVision DeepinMind?

HikVision DeepinMind Series NVR’s boast up to 90 percent accuracy in false alarm reduction and intelligent facial recognition technology, human intervention can be reduced to the bare minimum. Depending on your application, you can choose a single-purpose NVR for perimeter protection or facial recognition scenario (6700, 7700, and 9600 series), or one that can do both (96000 series). 

The perimeter protection NVRs feature smart analysis (line crossing/intrusion detection), false alarm reduction based on perimeter protection, and quick target search capabilities. The facial recognition NVRs play a key role in advanced biometric solutions with high recognition accuracy. The 96000 series, the most advanced model to date, offers all the above features with much higher capacities.

What is HikVision DarkFighterX?

In 2013, HikVision launched cameras with DarkFighter technology, featuring a larger sensor and a larger aperture. Years later, HikVision set the industry benchmark with DarkFighterX highlighted by an innovative dual-sensor design. Based on the process human eyes use to perceive colour and brightness, it employs two sensors — one for IR imaging, guaranteeing brightness and sharpness, the other for visible light, guaranteeing vivid colour reproduction. These signals are then combined into ONE BRIGHT, FULL-COLOUR image.

What is HikVision HeatPro?

HeatPro Series thermal cameras boast perimeter protection with unparalleled accuracy and fire detection with superlative sensitivity. Featuring deep-learning video analytics in all weather and light conditions, these cameras hit the target in both cost and performance for a variety of residential, commercial and industrial applications.
