HDCVI was first introduced in 2012 with the purpose to provide high definition video over coaxial cable. This line of cameras and recorders has expanded since then in order to include a host of cutting-edge technologies.
HDCVI cameras are available in fisheye, PTZ, multi-sensor and covert options as well as traditional fixed models. Some also include options such as Starlight technology, True Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) and 4K resolution. Certain hybrid HDCVI recorders have Smart H.265+ which allows more data to be captured with a lower impact to the unit storage. Penta-brid technology makes HDCVI recorders compatible with the five most commonly used video formats which are HDCVI, TVI, AHD, CVBS and IP, which provides added flexibility. The latest innovations in HDCVI products are Smart Motion Detection and Night Colour.
Smart Motion Detection
Smart Motion Detection is available in the HDCVI 4K penta-brid recorder X82A3A. SMD’s most exciting feature is its false alarm filter for perimeter protection. It uses a deep learning algorithm in order to differentiate human and vehicle classification, while it also reduces false alarms caused by animals, camera shaking, plants and trees moving in the wind and other irrelevant objects. SMD also comprises Quick Target Search. This classifies and extracts people and vehicles from the video database, letting users find and analyze historical information quickly and easily. The alarm visualization is also greatly improved with Smart Motion Detection and displays a more accurate tracking box around a moving subject. This recorded has a maximum storage capacity of 2 HDD at 10 TB each and is compatible with any HDCVI camera.
The two 4MP, HDCVI cameras which are A42BJAZ and A42BJA2 both have Night Colour for optimal light sensitivity in low-light environments. Night-time images are captured in vivid colour, in as little as one lux of ambient light, this means that the images remain in colour without a cut filter or IR illumination. The 1/1.79” CMOS lens filter a higher amount of absorbed light and results in up to two times the brightness of a standard IR camera. Night Colour saves a lot of energy as the maximum power consumption of a Night colour camera is under 4W while the power consumption of a normal surveillance camera is around 8-12W due to IR LEDs turning on. Night Colour provides users with clear and detailed images in dark conditions, even with minimal lighting conditions such as streetlamps. Night Colour cameras deliver full-colour images beyond the point where other cameras produce monochrome images, which means that Night Colour cameras provide relevant video 24/7. Our 4MP, HDCVI Night Colour cameras are available in an “eyeball” form with a fixed and vari-focal lens.
