Hikvision Launches New DarkFighterX PTZ Security Camera

February 21, 2018


Hikvision launched its new DarkFighterX camera, a 2 MP Outdoor DarkFighterX IR Network Speed Dome surveillance camera with 25 times optical zoom.

The DarkfighterX PTZ camera (model DS-2DF8225IH-AELW) features a revolutionary new design and industry-leading low light capabilities, producing full-color images down to 0.001 Lux. It employs two 2 MP 1/2.8" progressive scan CMOS sensors that separately collect IR and visible light. Hikvision's patented Bi-Spectral Fusion Technology then combines the signal from each sensor to produce a bright, colorful image.

The DarkfighterX is equipped with smart functions that improve scene filtering to reduce false alarms and improve auto-tracking, and smart detection such as line crossing, intrusion and region entrance/exit detection.

The camera also has electronic image stabilization, IR up to 655 feet (200 m), and an IP66 protection rating.
