Hikvision launches new generation of intelligent video surveillance systems

SMART SOLUTION 2.0, Hikvision’s new generation of intelligent video surveillance systems focuses on increased performance, functionality, usability and business productivity, includes enriched smart features across its entire range of industry-leading IP cameras, Smart NVRs and video management software. These tailored applications are specially designed to meet the individual requirements of key vertical markets, including the retail, banking, hotel and industrial sectors.

“As the number of sites multiplies, client requirements and expectations vary more than ever, and IP is increasingly accepted as the de facto standard, a new generation of intelligent video systems is needed to address the critical requirements facing all CCTV systems”, says Keen Yao, International Marketing Director of Hikvision. “SMART SOLUTION 2.0 recognizes that users need help to differentiate the real threats from the background noise and ways to efficiently retrieve this information amid the explosion in stored data. SMART SOLUTION 2.0 also recognizes that CCTV surveillance has made the jump from an assurance system to a key driver in many businesses and this convergence of security and productivity is set to accelerate.”

Hikvision’s SMART IP cameras combined intelligence, efficiency, ease-of-use and high performance when they introduced Smart technologies such as Smart Codec, Smart Detection and Smart Control to modern video surveillance. Now, SMART SOLUTION 2.0 enriches the Smart features with Region Entry/Exit, Object Counting/Removal/Exit, Target Cropping and ANPR (automatic number plate recognition). Region Entry/Exit detects people, vehicles or other objects entering or exiting from a pre-defined virtual region, triggering an alarm which may also generate further actions. The ‘Object’ tracking features build upon this to allow users to define an area of interest and count objects entering or leaving, with objects including people and vehicles. In a further refinement, Object Left/Removal can detect and prompt an alarm if an object is left in or removed from a pre-defined region.

Rounding out the solution, the on-board ANPR analytics further help to detect and recognize a vehicle’s license plate and send ANPR info to a Smart NVR or video management software for access management. It allows users to systematically manage videos and locate each individual vehicle in a given period of time, greatly accelerating post-event investigation.

From its inception, SMART IP has offered professionally-focused, high-performance cameras and NVRs. In line with the enriched Smart features, SMART SOLUTION 2.0 offers an exceptional range of advanced CCTV equipment to suit any application. As well as the original Smart IP and Smart PTZ ranges, the new cameras include Hikvision’s DarkFighter and LightFighter series, the 6MP Ultra HD series, the 4K IP series, 8MP and 12MP real-time-video Smart IP cameras and the newly-launched 3MP WDR series. Each boasts the full SMART feature set, making it the industry’s richest Smart product offering available.
