To arm security cameras with the ability to capture high-definition colour images, Hikvision has developed and launched its ColorVu technology which gives superior quality images even in dark scenarios.
Hikvision has expanded its full-colour camera range with the ColorVu technology and it now includes 4K cameras for UHD experience, along with varifocal cameras for better clarity. According to Hikvision’s press release these “innovations allow organizations and local authorities to monitor outdoor or indoor spaces, identify breaches as soon as they occur, and react in real time to protect staff, employees and members of the public”.
With large apertures of F/1.0 and high-performance imaging sensors, the cameras with ColorVu technology are capable to use a new 3D dynamic noise reduction (DNR) algorithm to increase clarity at long range. Colorful images are produced through the warm supplemental light even in no-light environments.
Cameras with ColorVu can also integrate Hikvision’s AcuSense technology to distinguish between people, cars, and other moving objects such as rain, leaves, and animals. When preset intrusion types are detected, alarms are triggered thereby alerting the security to take adequate measures.
Hikvision lists out 4 different but key applications of the new ColorVu technology:
- Security for outdoor space – especially streets and parks: as dark areas do increase the risk of crime and threat to one’s safety. With ColorVu tech integrated, the cameras will be capable to record high-res full-colour video footages even in low-light situations.
- Improved perimeter protection for retail and logistic parks: Breaches can be identified with relative ease by the security teams through cameras with ColorVu. Hikvision’s AcuSense also helps in this scenario as well as its licence-plate recognition feature
- Asset protection for small businesses: Cameras with ColorVu technology can help protect assets of small businesses including vehicles left in driveways or on the street.
- Increased security at building entrances: as security teams can also chose to turn on the camera’s supplementary light as an additional deterrent to a break in or other incident.
