HDCVI has been around for years. First introduced by Dahua in 2012, its primary focus was to deliver high definition video over coaxial cable. The range of HDCVI cameras and recorders has since expanded to include a host of advanced technologies.
HDCVI cameras are available in fisheye, PTZ, multisensor and covert options, as well as traditional fixed models, and some include options such as Starlight technology, True Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), or 4K resolution. Some HDCVI hybrid recorders are equipped with Smart H.265 +, which allows more data to be captured with less impact on the unit's storage. Penta-brid technology makes HDCVI recorders compatible with the five most commonly used video formats (HDCVI, TVI, AHD, CVBS and IP) offering increased flexibility. The latest innovations in HDCVI products are intelligent motion detection and night color.
Intelligent motion detection for HDCVI
Intelligent Motion Detection (SMD) is now available in our penta-brid HDCVI 4K recorder (X82A3A). The most interesting feature of SMD is its false alarm filter for perimeter protection. It uses a deep learning algorithm to differentiate the classification of humans and vehicles, while reducing false alarms caused by animals, camera shake, plants and trees moving in the wind and others irrelevant objects. SMD also includes quick target search. This categorizes and extracts people and vehicles from the video database, allowing users to find and analyze historical information quickly and easily. Alarm viewing is also greatly improved with SMD, showing a more accurate tracking box around a moving subject.
Other advantages of this recorder are a maximum storage capacity of 2 hard drives of 10TB each and compatibility with any HDCVI camera.
Night color for HDCVI
Two new 4MP HDCVI cameras (A42BJAZ and A42BJA2) have night color for optimum light sensitivity in low light environments. Night color is exactly what it looks like - nighttime images are captured in vivid colors with as little as a lux of ambient light. Remarkably, the images remain in color without a cut filter or infrared illumination. By using a large aperture, the 1/1.79" CMOS lens filters a greater amount of absorbed light and produces up to twice the brightness of a standard infrared camera.
Night color also saves a lot of energy. The power consumption of a normal surveillance camera is around 8-12W due to the IR LEDs turning on, while the maximum power consumption of a Night Color camera is less than 4W.
Night Color is extraordinary because it allows users to rely on clear and detailed images in dark conditions. Even with minimal lighting conditions such as street lights, Night Color cameras provide color images beyond the point where other cameras produce monochrome images. This means Night Color cameras deliver relevant video 24/7. Our 4MP, HDCVI, Night Color cameras are available in an "eyeball" form factor with a fixed or vari-focal lens.
What are you waiting for?
With no dearth of options and features, HDCVI day in the sun is long overdue. Combined with its attractive price and flexible options to maximize use of existing infrastructure, users don't need to settle for the second rate when choosing HDCVI over IP.
