Hikvision reveals Tandemvu PTZ cameras

Hangzhou, China

Hikvision has launched its new Tandemvu PTZ camera range, which integrates PTZ and bullet camera capabilities into a single unit. This means that Tandemvu PTZ cameras can monitor large areas and zoom in on specific security incidents while maintaining focus on both ‘viewpoints’ simultaneously. These cameras eliminate the need to deploy separate PTZ and bullet cameras in pairs.

With this new camera type with cutting-edge features, operators can zoom in on details without losing the overview picture, providing the ‘best of both worlds’ for maximum security.

The Tandemvu technology features Hikvision’s next-generation camera design, integrating multiple lenses in one unit to provide big picture and small details in tandem. The new Tandemvu PTZ cameras offer a range of benefits vs. deploying stand-alone PTZ cameras, or pairs of PTZ and bullet cameras mounted together.

They offer various advantages including 100% security coverage with no ‘blind spots.’ Tandemvu PTZ cameras allow security teams to continue monitoring large areas with no interruptions, while simultaneously zooming in to monitor specific security incidents that occur. This ensures that there are never security blind spots related to PTZ zooming, tilting, or panning.

In addition, the cameras are designed to provide high-definition imaging with 2 x 4MP lenses and a super-wide view of 180°, with no image distortion (i.e., no curving of the image at the edges). Specifically, its bullet unit features Hikvision’s signature Colorvu technology, which promises crystal-clear, full-colour imaging 24/7; while its PTZ unit employs Hikvision Darkfighter technology that enables excellent HD colour images down to 0.0005 Lux – engineered to ensure that every security incident is recorded in fine detail.

The new cameras also offer optimised security based on smart automation as they are engineered with intelligent AI, allowing the cameras to differentiate between real security threats and innocent moving objects such as falling leaves, heavy rain, or animals moving. They can also differentiate vehicles and people and use smart linkages to check on trespassers as they move within the PTZ coverage, which is extremely useful for perimeter protection applications.

Customers can also deploy Tandemvu PTZ cameras for more advanced security, thanks to its leading AI chipset that facilitates massive computing power. This allows more advanced deep learning algorithms available for complex scenarios, including automatic number plate recognition (ANPR), facial recognition, multi-target-type detection, and others.

Tandemvu PTZ cameras incorporate a Live-Guard solution using sound and light alarms that warn would-be trespassers before they enter a site or building. This can help to prevent security incidents, helping organisations to protect their people and assets.

Combining the PTZ and bullet capabilities in one unit also allows for more efficiency and cost savings. Tandemvu PTZ cameras significantly reduce installation, configuration, and maintenance costs vs. separate PTZ and bullet cameras. Procurement costs compared to deploying PTZ and bullet cameras side-by-side can also be reduced dramatically.

The new Hikvision TandemVu PTZ cameras are now grouped into two product families that are suitable for different application and scenarios.

Top of the range SF8C series provide two bullet lenses for maximum coverage with 180° panoramic view and imaging quality powered by Hikvision Colorvu technology. They further incorporate top-notch AI algorithms for advanced intelligence. The cameras offer 42x optical zoom capabilities to focus on security incidents close-up. SF8C cameras are suitable for highways, airports, railway stations, city squares, scenic places, and important infrastructure facilities such as power plants.

There are also SE7C series featuring one bullet lens that offers the image performance and intelligent functions available with Hikvision Colorvu and Acusense technologies. The cameras support up to 32x optical zoom, and are ideal for streets, industrial parks, farmland, and car parks.
