Hikvision expands HiWatch IP portfolio
Hikvision, the global provider of video surveillance products and solutions, is proud to unveil three new HD network products into its expanding HiWatch product portfolio. These include Hikvision’s DS-2CD2012-I 1.3MP IR mini bullet camera, DS-2CD2112-I 1.3MP IR mini outdoor dome camera, as well as a recording device – Hikvision’s DS-7600NI-SE(/P) plug & play embedded NVR. Hikvision’s HiWatch series is geared towards a broad portfolio of surveillance solutions for small-to-medium-sized enterprises. These newly introduced HiWatch IP products are cost-effective, yet still benefit users with high-quality monitoring, ease of use, and ease of installation – a perfect choice for home and business monitoring.
Both cameras, the DS-2CD2012-I and DS-2CD2112-I, feature compact designs, enhanced low-light performance and efficient encoding capability. Equipped with 30 IR LEDs, both cameras are able to deliver outstanding video images with long-range visibility of up-to 30 meters in a completely dark environment. Images are further enhanced with 3D DNR, which works to greatly reduce noise and motion blur, as well as WDR functionality to ensure image clarity in strong lighting contrast environments. Additionally, these two new IP models are developed based on Hikvision’s latest platform for network cameras that offer higher compression efficiency (approximately 30% to 50% above traditional network cameras). This significantly reduces the transmission burden for both video information and storage on IP surveillance systems. In addition, these two new cameras are both IP66 rated for outdoor applications, while the DS-2CD2112-I also incorporates vandal-proof housing.
These two new HiWatch IP cameras are both PoE equipped, while the DS-7600NI-SE(/P) NVR supports up-to four independent PoE network interfaces and auto-discover the connected IP cameras for IP address auto-allocation. Through the simple act of plugging a cable into a network interface, the front-end cameras’ IP address is automatically configured to transmit a live view and store video. Moreover, this NVR supports HDMI and VGA output at up-to 1920x1080p resolution, which benefits users with high-definition video image viewing. Incorporated with customization of tags for video information, this NVR further allows users complete control over their systems to locate key events more efficiently. The DS-7600NI-SE(/P) supports HDD quota management for video storage optimization, and 2 SATA hard disks are equipped with capacity of up to 4TB each.
As well, the three new HD network products all support open protocols to expand integration with other devices. The DS-2CD2012-I and DS-2CD2112-I are both ONVIF, PSIA and CGI conformant; while the DS-7600NI-SE(/P) supports third-party network cameras, to provide versatile solutions for different surveillance needs.
