Hikvision Unveils 'LightFighter' Ultra-high WDR Camera Range
The LightFighter series delivers crystal-clear images with true color reproduction in brightly lit or high contrast environments.
Hikvision, the global leader in innovative video surveillance products and solutions, is set to reach new heights in extremely high contrast imaging with the launch of the LightFighter series of 2MP SMART IP cameras.
Each of the seven new LightFighter cameras incorporates Hikvision's ultra-high 140 dB WDR technology for exceptional, industry-leading visibility in brightly lit or high contrast environments. The result of this cutting-edge advance is clear, detail-rich images in lighting conditions that would defeat conventional WDR cameras.
LightFighter - new series of 7 cameras
The LightFighter series consists of seven 2 megapixel cameras featuring Hikvision's ultra-high WDR technology to overcome the pitfalls of imaging extreme backlight and high contrast scenes. The new models include a Smart IP Box camera, two outdoor Bullet cameras, two outdoor Dome cameras, and a pair of Network PTZ Dome cameras with 36X zoom. All seven LightFighter cameras are also capable of rendering Full 1920 x 1080 HD images at a consistent 60 frames per second, and boast low-light capability for night time surveillance needs.
140dB WDR overcomes extreme backlighting and high contrast
The key to the performance of the LightFighter cameras is the industry-leading WDR system that allows the camera to record greater scene details even where the intensity of illumination varies considerably, such as backlighting when very dark and very bright areas appear simultaneously in the field of view. Although a common feature in CCTV cameras for this reason, the 140 dB WDR in the LightFighter offers 100 times more powerful enhancement than the 120 dB WDR systems of conventional cameras. LightFighter is particularly suited to intense backlight situations, and is the ideal camera to point towards windows and entrance doors.
Smart Solution 2.0
The LightFighter camera range is equipped with Hikvision's full SMART feature set, including face detection, intrusion detection, line-crossing detection, ANPR and object counting that enables the camera to detect any progressively moving object and follow it within the camera's area of coverage without fault.
Coupled with Hikvision Smart NVR and iVMS-5200 Professional video management software, the complete Smart Solution is set to accelerate the security demands in versatile vertical markets, including commercial /industrial sector, transportation, banking and much more.
The Hikvision LightFighter series will be showcased at the upcoming IFSEC International trade show (16-18th June 2015). Please stop by Hikvision booth Hall 4, E800 to experience the intelligent and feature-rich products!
