Prama Hikvision has been leading the Indian security industry in the Video Security segment through innovative products and solutions. The company has recently introduced its all new ColorVu Cameras powered by the new Hikvision ColorVu Technology. ColorVu Technology enables cameras to produce colorful videos, even in extremely dimly lit environments.
When using a conventional camera with infrared lighting for night monitoring, people, vehicles, or other important objects are blurry and blend into the background, making it difficult to identify details. Color-related information is crucial for many scenarios and are a great asset for data and analyses. However, conventional cameras often lose important details when rendering only black and white images. ColorVu Technology is our solution to this common challenge faced by many security system users.
Hikvision ColorVu Technology
Hikvision ColorVu Cameras’ powerful ability to capture details in low lighting comes from two specific breakthroughs in hardware technologies: advanced lenses and high-performance sensors. Coupled with a supplemental light for extremely dark scenarios, ColorVu cameras guarantee video with colorful details when you need them.
The Key Benefits of Full-color Video
- True Color Information
– Accurate color rendering
– Excellent performance in low-light environments
- More Details
– Clearly captured color information and richer details compared to black and white imaging
- Better Visual Experience
– Balanced brightness
– F1.0 super aperture and advanced sensor guarantee realistic rendering
Residential: Residential buildings, whether townhouses, multi-family homes, or apartments, often have several low-light areas that become potentially risky and difficult to navigate in darkness, such as walkways, stairwells, and other outdoor areas. ColorVu cameras provide unmatched surveillance where incidents or accidents occur, and illuminates areas to reduce risk and improve safety for tenants and visitors. Better quality imaging improves suspect identification when needed, providing a safer environment for residents.
Small Businesses: Users can monitor entrances and exits as well as dimly-lit interior and exterior areas where theft or other crimes occur, such as dark hallways and walkways, dumpster areas, and loading docks. Enjoy better illumination with ColorVu cameras while they protect your employees, customers and assets, helping them to feel safe around and within your property.
Parking Lots: Parking lots are difficult to protect for many reasons. But ColorVu uses sophisticated supplemental lighting to make parking areas easier to secure; this means there is no need for additional lighting to capture high-quality, full color images. ColorVu’s environmentally-friendly natural light will not interfere with a driver’s vision, as opposed to harsh, bright, or discolored lights. All these features reduce costs and ensure high-resolution, detailed imagery—such as the color of a person’s clothing or the color of a car—and everything is recorded for forensic review when necessary.
Parks and Recreation Areas: Strategically placed ColorVu Cameras illuminate areas with limited lighting that pose risks for accidents or other incidents such as walkways, play areas, entrances to the restrooms, and exercise areas. Better evening and night time illumination keeps members of the community feeling safe and comfortable.
Enriched ColorVu options with 4K and Varifocal cameras: The latest ColorVu cameras offer enriched options to the market with having covered both Turbo HD (DF8T series/DF3T series/DF0T series) and Network products. The enriched ColorVu series can satisfy a multitude of customer needs, from high performance products to budget friendly choices and smart solutions.
Hikvision has now included 4K ColorVu cameras in its product range, which brings color imaging to ultra-high-definition levels day and night. With better image quality and richer detail, 4K ColorVu cameras can be applied across an even wider range of scenarios, including stadiums, airports, harbors, and parking lots, where clear and high-resolution images are necessary.
In addition, Hikvision has also added Varifocal cameras (the DF8T-Z series) to the new ColorVu models to create 24/7 color imaging in all focal lengths. With 2.8 – 12 mm motorized lenses, ColorVu Varifocal cameras will allow users to zoom in on colorful images at night.
Enhanced colorful imaging with AA manufacturing technology: The latest ColorVu camera lenses have kept the F1.0 super-aperture design, allowing four times more light to enter the lens than conventional cameras (that have F2.0). Focusing high definition cameras with large F1.0 apertures is extremely technically for the industry, requiring very strict and accurate manufacturing. Hikvision has applied its advanced Active Alignment (AA) Technology in the production of ColorVu cameras to bring the adjustment accuracy to within 4 pixels, even smaller than 1/30 hair diameter.
Meanwhile, with optimized sensors, night time color imaging of ColorVu camera renders much brighter than conventional cameras. A new 3D dynamic noise reduction (DNR) algorithm helps the cameras record additional remote details clearly and deliver sharper images. In addition, ColorVu cameras are equipped with a soft and warm supplemental light that illuminates to guarantee color imaging even in zero-light environments.
Quick target search with AcuSense technology: Most security camera users only need to focus on alarms triggered by human and vehicles, especially at night. These newly released ColorVu cameras can integrate Hikvision’s cutting-edge AcuSense technology to help users focus only on events that matter to security. Empowered by deep learning algorithms, ColorVu cameras can distinguish people and vehicles from other moving objects such as rain, leaves and animals. Alarms will only be triggered when the pre-set intrusion type takes place. With this solution, video clips are sorted by human and vehicle categories, and object classification vastly improves search efficiency.
