Hikvision, the global leader of video surveillance products and solutions, launches a new series of low-light network cameras – the X55 series – that enables users to achieve impeccable vision of meticulous details in extremely dark environments. There are four models in the series: the DS-2CD755F-E(I)(Z) indoor dome camera, DS-2CD7255F-E(I)Z(H) outdoor dome camera, DS-2CD855F-E network box camera and DS-2CD8255F-EI(Z) bullet camera. Each offers super low light technology (up to 0.05 lux/f1.2, with AGC on), and boasts of a full high-definition output and an industry-leading noise reduction technology (3D DNR).
“We created this series of cameras to fill a niche in the market. Currently, the most advanced security cameras typically fail to reach their potential in very dark conditions. With the X55 series, we resolve this issue and top it off with world-class camera resolution,” said Keen Yao, International Marketing Director of Hikvision.
The super low-light capability is the hallmark of the X55 series, making the cameras well ahead of their time in technological advancement. With a minimum illumination of 0.05 lux @ F1.2, these cameras have a level of sensitivity that allows users to discern colors, shapes, sizes, and of course movements in near complete darkness. Coupled with a wide range, the most meticulous details can be brought to life and captured with extreme clarity.
Each of the models in the series captures images of up to 2 megapixels and provides full HD 1080p real-time video recording. The DS-2CD8255F-EI(Z) and DS-2CD7255F-E(I)Z(H) both incorporate a weather proof rating of IP66 and operate effectively in a wide range of weather conditions, including a temperature range of -10°C to 60°C (14°F to 140°F) and humidity of up to 90%.
The DS-2CD8255F-EI(Z) bullet camera, DS-2CD755F-E(I)(Z) indoor dome camera and DS-2CD7255F-E(I)Z(H) outdoor dome camera all offer optional infrared LEDs and provide an IR range of up to 30m (98.4 feet), as well as motorized Vari-focal lens that facilitates quick and easy lens installation. Besides, the DS-2CD7255F-E(I)Z(H) even supports a built-in fan and heater.
These cameras can be incorporated into a larger networked surveillance system where alarms are triggered automatically in the event of a security breach. Among the many networking features, network connection errors and IP address conflict alerts allow users to quickly resolve potential networking issues to ensure the maximum uptime in the system. “In today’s context, we cannot afford to have any downtime in security. It only takes a minute or two for a breach to occur,” commented Keen.
