Hikvision launches thermal cameras for hazardous areas

Hikvision has launched a new range of thermal cameras for hazardous areas which will capture vivid, high-resolution HD video of moving objects at resolutions up to 640 x 512 pixels, unhindered by either darkness or inclement weather.

The cameras also feature three innovative functionalities for image quality enhancement: Auto Gain Control, Digital Detail Enhancement, and 3D Digital Noise Reduction. The Auto Gain Control (AGC) adjusts the dynamic range of the image to make the picture retain helpful permeability; Digital Detail Enhancement (DDE), based on an algorithm for a region of interest, renders more detail in the on-screen image; and 3D Digital Noise Reduction (DNR) further minimizes the influence of “hot pixels,” making images even sharper.

Equipped with onboard video analytics, Hikvision thermal cameras boast a full quiver of “smart” features, including line crossing detection and intrusion detection for perimeter protection. Additionally, temperature-anomaly and fire detection effectively help prevent fires, structural hazards, and many other threats to persons and property.

The cameras are available in single and dual-lens models. The dual-lens models add optical cameras alongside thermal cameras, providing thermal and standard images at the same time. This enables security personnel to better identify target objects. The optical lens helps to capture images at up to 1920 x 1080p resolution day and night. The Smart Tracking function is also available in Speed Dome model cameras.
