ColorVu is on of Hikvision’s most important innovations to date, but what is it and how is it better than normal CCTV or Darkfighter technology.
For years home owner’s, small businesses and even the council have depended on CCTV to deter crime; and if it should still occur, record high-quality images to apprehend a perpetrator. However, a limitation of CCTV is its effectiveness during nighttime.
Most crime prevention experts agree that poorly lit conditions attract crime. In such conditions, people, vehicles, or other important objects are blurry and blend into the background, making it difficult to identify details.
Designers have used infrared technology to overcome poor images during darkness however still to date, most cameras produce a greyscale image at around 0.8 lux.
Camera’s equipped with ColorVu technology produce high-quality colour videos even in poorly lit conditions.
Hikvision ColorVu Cameras’ ability to capture images in low light levels is a result of two specific innovations in hardware technology: a supperior lens and high-performance sensor. Coupled with a small supplemental light for extremely dark scenarios, ColorVu cameras produce high quality images when you need them.
