ColorVu Cameras


View in Color, even in Darkness – ColorVu Technology enables cameras to produce colorful videos even in extremely dimly lit environments

Darkness provides cover for theft, trespassing, and other crimes.

When using a conventional camera with infrared lighting for night monitoring, people, vehicles, or other important objects are blurry and blend into the background, making it difficult to identify details.

Color-related information is crucial for many scenarios and are a great asset for data and analyses. However, conventional cameras often lose important details when rendering only black and white images. ColorVu Technology is our solution to this common challenge faced by many security system users.

Hikvision launches 4MP DarkFighterX with even higher resolution and AI


The new DarkFighterX camera employs 1/1.8” 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.

Deep Learning technology

To detect suspected events effectively, intelligent cameras armed with Deep Learning technology, can now offer more than ever before. Since smart event detection has become prevalent throughout security systems – such as intrusion detection and line crossing detection – it is essential to make sure that cameras receive more details before triggering an automatic response. And all of the information depends on how many pixels the image can provide, therefore the more pixels the better.

35x Zoom

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 – enough to observe the object clearly. 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
–    Rapid focus
–    Up to 250m IR distance with Smart IR
–    IP67

The DarkFighterX series cameras come into their own in exterior dimly-lit environments that need 24/7 full-colour footage, such as streets, rivers, forests, roads, railways, ports, squares and parks.

“We know that night time surveillance can be a real challenge for security professionals, especially in large outside areas”, says Peter Guan, EU Channel Sales and Marketing Manager at Hikvision. “We have further developed our DarkFighterX series to include a more powerful camera to support them in their ‘fight against the darkness’.”
