Hikvision Reports Biggest-Ever IFSEC Visitor Numbers

hikvision ifsecVideo surveillance giant Hikvision showcased several new products at IFSEC as it enjoyed its greatest ever number of visitors to its stand.

Taking centre stage was the latest 16MP PanoVu Series camera. Designed for wide-area security monitoring applications, the PanoVu combines 8x sensors with a high-powered PTZ camera, allowing end-users to replace or support multiple cameras with just one 180 or 360 degree view PanoVu camera, delivering a highly detailed panoramic display.

Hikvision says the PanoVu’s advanced functionality, which incorporates video analysis and multiple target-tracking algorithm, was shown to deliver highly-effective alarm indication of intrusion detection, line crossing and region entrance and exiting.

The Turbo HD 3.0 Solution, which upgrades an analogue system to 5 MP-resolution, purports to make high-definition surveillance systems possible without the costly replacement of existing coaxial cables. Engineered with high-calibre H.264+ compression, Turbo HD 3.0 technology reduces bitrates by up to 50% while maintaining high-quality video.

A new thermal camera range was also on display. Offered in static and PTZ versions, thermal only, or thermal and video imaging with 36x optical zoom, their thermal imaging capability extends to up to 1200m at resolutions up to 640 x 512 pixels, regardless of light level or weather.

Hikvision, which recently acquired intrusion specialist Pyronix, pitched itself to IFSEC attendees as an end-to-end system solutions provider rather than just a network camera and DVR manufacturer.

Visitors to Hikvision’s stand also heard that standard Hikvision cameras were now adapted for Licence plate recognition (LPR) applications via free-to-download software.

New intercom systems, which included intercom door stations with vandal-proof and built-in biometrics/face detection models, were also showcased alongside a range of new access control readers.

Hikvision also introduced a series of security solutions for specific vertical markets, including retail, transportation, construction. For instance, the company introduced a PTZ camera designed or deployment on buses, trains and other vehicles. This mobile CCTV solution boasts a magnetic base, 3G/4G control and built-in WiFi, eight-hour on-board battery and two SD card slots.

“We are really pleased with the record numbers of visitors to the Hikvision stand at IFSEC 2016,” said Cynthia Ho, vice president at Hikvision.

“As an end-to-end security solutions provider, we were delighted to demonstrate our expanded range of security products to our UK and international customers, and look forward to supporting their business growth throughout another successful year.”

Channel sales manager Justin Qu offered pointers as to what can be expected for IFSEC 2017: “Next year we hope to have a new access control system, intercom and intruder alarm.”
