Hikvision unveils first ‘True 8K’ NVRs

Issue 7 2022 Surveillance, Products & Solutions

Hikvision has unveiled the security industry’s first ‘True 8K’ NVRs that support video recording, storage, transfer, decoding and output of up to 8K super-high-resolution images. The new M-Series NVRs can be used with a host of Hikvision cameras, and are ideal for environments where a wide field of view, and extremely high image resolution is needed.

After years of technical accumulation and innovation, Hikvision has comprehensively upgraded and optimised both the software and hardware of the M-Series NVR. These NVRs are equipped with an 8-core, 64-bit, high-performance SOC chip and high-capacity DDR4 memory kits, which full guarantees True 8K functionality.

• 8K video access and storage

The powerful hardware performance of the M-Series provides a stable guarantee for 8K video access. In the meantime, enabled by innovative dynamic cache technology, the devices are able to adjust the cache required by each channel to achieve a high-concurrency and high-bitrate video stream. Being able to effectively adjust the dynamic application, the entire device’s performance is improved, making it able to achieve efficient storage for an 8K video stream.

• 8K video transfer

The built-in high-frame-rate port forwarding optimisation technology not only ensures data integrity, but also improves the transfer efficiency of the 8K code stream, effectively reducing frame loss and delay.

• 8K video decoding

Featuring a high-performance codec core that supports up to 32 x 1080p @ 30 fps, the devices can efficiently decode 8K real-time streams for two channels at the same time, enabling smooth live-view and playback.

• 8K video output

The new series adopts the HDMI 2.1 interface, which supports an output resolution as high as 8K (7680 x 4320)/30 Hz.

With the launch of the M-Series NVRs, Hikvision is extending its True 8K solutions from front-end products such as cameras and LED displays to back-end devices, offering customers an extremely clear and detailed visual experience in all kinds of scenarios.

The True 8K NVRs can be used with a wide range of Hikvision’s cameras to meet users’ specific needs in various situations. Combined with fisheye cameras, panoramic cameras, TandemVu and many others, the devices are fit to be used in both indoor and outdoor spaces such as public halls, squares, stadiums, stations, etc., where a wider angle of view and sharper, more detailed images are required.

System stability and data safety

To ensure high-level system stability and data safety, the M-Series NVRs are equipped with an embedded file system that helps to increase productivity for data management tasks, a 1+1 redundant power supply to provide load balancing, reduce pressure and increase service life, as well as a ‘dual system’ to avoid data loss and guarantee the reliability of the storage system.

Ease of use and simple installation

To ensure ease of use and simple installation, the 2/4/8/16-bay models of the M-Series adopt 1U, 1,5U, 2U and 3U chassis designs. At the same time, the device’s hot-dip galvanised coating makes it highly durable, and its versatile modular architecture ensures deployment flexibility. These design features bring about a lightweight, hassle-free, efficiently heat-dissipating device which can easily meet users’ evolving needs.

Wenson Zhou, a product director at Hikvision, says, “The new M-Series NVRs showcase Hikvision’s industry-leading technologies and innovations by offering superior-quality images of up to 8K super-high-resolution through an easy connection with a wide range of Hikvision cameras. These True 8K devices will enable users from all kinds of industries with the capacity to zoom into large scenes to view exact details without quality loss.”
