Hikvision days

by Mark Rowe

Security installers across the UK and Ireland had the latest preview of developments from Hikvision at the company’s Autumn Insight events last month. Days in Glasgow, Bristol, London, Birmingham and Dublin, and two in Leeds, drew almost 1500 to talks and demonstrations.

Hikvision detailed its Artificial Intelligence-powered Deep Learning products, which include human body detection, facial recognition, queue detection and management, and illegal parking detection. Now well branched out from video surveillance, Hikvision’s Access Control range has card and fingerprint readers, time and attendance and facial recognition terminals, and controllers.

New additions to the Smart IP – 5 Series cameras; Easy IP and Turbo Analogue HD products were demonstrated, alongside HikCentral video management software, and PTZ kit. New products in the analogue Turbo HD 5.0 range include the AcuSense Turbo HD DVR, designed using Deep Learning algorithms to aid object detection, and ColorVu Turbo HD cameras, which provide bright colour video images 24/7, even in the lowest-light conditions.

The EasyIP 4.0 range introduces AcuSense and ColorVu. The integration of AcuSense into EasyIP 4.0 cameras and NVRs helps to reduce false alarms, offering faster reaction times the makers say. EasyIP 4.0 ColorVu cameras use supplemental lighting to deliver colour video images, even at night, the company says.

Also introduced was the company’s Thermal Bi-spectrum bullet camera, as another product to harness Deep Learning algorithms in its behaviour analysis. This enables it to deliver smart alarms like line crossing, region entrance/exit and intrusion, for perimeter security,

And the manufacturer’s new expanded and updated range of Video Intercom systems are designed with a variety of options in technologies and components, including IP, 2-wire, analogue and standalone wi-fi doorbell versions.

Hikvision UK and Ireland marketing director, Justin Hollis, said: “Our Insight events enable us to introduce these new ranges and technologies to the people who will be working with them every day. Technology in the security industry is developing at a faster rate than ever before, so providing our partners with the first chance to get hands-on experience and technical understanding allows them to make the very most of the latest functionality, and to deliver those benefits to their end user customers.”
