Hikvision USA showcased technology specifically designed for small and medium-sized businesses (SMB) at the GSX conference in Chicago, Sept. 10-12.

“Deep learning, significant false alarm reduction, fire and temperature detection, and brilliant colour images in complete darkness are not the kinds of features normally included in video surveillance technology for SMB customers, but that is changing,” said Eric Chen, general manager, Hikvision USA, in a statement. “At GSX 2019, Hikvision is excited to launch our Performance Thermal Series, ColorVu and AcuSense technologies, which for the first time makes high-end advanced technology available to SMBs and other budget-conscious end users.”

Hikvision says its AcuSense makes deep learning technology affordable for SMBs. AcuSense cameras sense human and vehicle movement versus non-human objects such as rain, animals and leaves, providing intrusion detection and significant reduction in false alarms, according to the company.

Hikvision ColorVu imaging technology provides full-colour, full-motion images and video around the clock, even in zero-light environments, by using a high-performance sensor, a large f1.0 aperture lens, and supplemental lighting.

Hikvision’s Performance Series Thermal Cameras include deep learning and GPU-powered video content analysis for perimeter defence, fire prevention, and predictive maintenance with at half the price of the previous Hikvision release, states the company.

Hikvision also announced a new Hikvision Product Selector, an online tool to simplify product search and selection for Hikvision dealers and distributors.

“Hikvision has more than 200 SKU numbers in the IP camera category alone,” said Forest Liu, Hikvision senior director of product management and marketing. “We wanted to make it easy for our partners to see what all our cameras look like and quickly compare features so they can choose the best product for every project.”
