Hikvision develops the core technologies of audio and video coding, video imaging and associated data storage, as well as advanced technologies such as cloud computing, Big Data and Deep Learning. Over the past years, Hikvision has expanded its knowledge and experience in meeting customer needs in various vertical markets, including public safety, transportation, education, healthcare, financial institutions, energy and smart buildings.
Accordingly, the company offers professional and customized solutions to meet the different market requirements. In addition to the video surveillance industry, Hikvision has expanded its business into smart home technologies, industrial automation and automotive electronics, all based on video intelligence technologies to build channels for sustainable development. Each year, 7-8% of revenues are invested in research and development to ensure ongoing product innovation. Hikvision has established a complete, multi-tiered R & D system that covers all steps from research, design, development, testing, technical support and service
Hikvision | Thermal imaging cameras with temperature screening
With advanced detectors and algorithms, Hikvision's temperature screening thermal imaging cameras can detect elevated skin surface temperatures in moving crowds with an accuracy of up to ±0.3°C, making them suitable for office buildings, factories, train stations, airports and other public places. In addition to temperature screening solutions, Hikvision also offers other products that can provide support tailored to individual scenarios.
Hikvision | The advantages of the solution at a glance
Fast measurement | The measurement time per person is one second. This helps to prevent rapid action and long queues in front of entrances and exits - another source of infection.
Measurement of several people | The body surface temperature can be checked on several people at the same time. It does not matter whether they are standing still or moving. Ideal for scenarios such as platforms or terminals.
Non-contact measurement | No matter whether using permanently installed cameras or the handheld device, the measurement of the body surface temperature can take place from a distance of several meters. This not only increases safety for everyone involved, but is also less invasive into the measured person's intimate sphere.
Hardly any false alarms thanks to AI | The temperature measurement only takes place after the deep learning algorithm has identified the structure of a face in the video image. This effectively prevents false alarms triggered by hot objects such as coffee cups or smartphones. Masks, as they are often worn for illnesses, do not irritate the algorithm.
AcuSense | Higher alarm accuracy
Hikvision AcuSense products use an improved deep learning algorithm. It analyses the live video material and categorises it as "human", "vehicle" and "other event". Events in the "human" and "vehicle" categories trigger alarms. Other events such as raindrops, animals, or leaves flying around are categorically sorted out. This drastically reduces false alarms - with an accuracy of almost 98%. Security personnel can thus concentrate on real, security-relevant events and intervene efficiently. The corresponding videos are automatically categorized to facilitate searching through the image material.
AcuSense | Improved motion detection with differentiation between man and vehicle
The AcuSense technology is also convincing in motion detection. Hikvision has responded to the needs of users in the development of AcuSense products and has realised a distinction between people and vehicles in motion detection. In motion detection, the system analyzes whether a person or a vehicle is involved and can use this analysis to make a differentiated decision as to whether an alarm should be triggered. This enables a variety of specified solutions for many scenarios.
AcuSense | flashing light and intercom
If real-time detection and deterrence are required, the Hikvision AcuSense range also offers camera models with flashing light and sound that are triggered when an alarm event is detected. At the same time, security personnel can communicate with the person who triggered the alarm via the camera's built-in intercom system to verify access authorization. The latest AcuSense cameras can also play back specially recorded audio files that are adapted to the specific application scenario.
