Hikvision launches 4 MP DarkFighterX

July 2019 Products, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Hikvision has released its new 4 MP Network IR PTZ camera, doubling the resolution of the previous model for even more clarity in dark places.

The new DarkFighterX camera employs 1/1.8-inch sensors to raise resolution to 4 megapixels. This ‘beyond-HD’ image carries twice the amount of information as 2 MP models. The camera can also deliver full colour images at light levels down to 0.0005 Lux. This also means that, in the future, facial recognition could be possible, even in dim light, thanks to powerful imaging ability and beyond-HD resolution.

The zoom on the new DarkFighterX camera has increased to 35x. This means the new camera is able to identify a one-metre-long object at 260 metres at a resolution of 250 pixels.

It has an optical zoom of 16x.

The camera has been equipped with an auto wiper to guarantee a better image on rainy days. This function is secured by a rain-detecting sensor on the head of the surface.

Other features include:

• 120 dB WDR, 3D DNR, chromatic defog.

• Supports H.265+/H.265 video compression.

• Up to 250 m IR distance with Smart IR.

• IP67.
