Hikvision’s New DarkFighter PTZ Surveillance Cameras Offers Better Image Clarity, Help Reduce Security Concerns

Revolutionary DarkFighterX Delivers Bright Color Images In 0.001 Lux


Hikvision’s DarkFighter PTZ surveillance cameras offer excellent image clarity and rapid focus, as well as additional features that help to improve surveillance quality and reduce security concerns.

The series includes Hikvision’s newly launched DS-2DF8225IH-AELW DarkFighterX PTZ model, which hosts an innovative dual-sensor design with revolutionary ultra-low-light technology, including a 25x optical lens with rapid focus, and 200m IR capabilities for 0.001 lux environments. The camera also features advanced and improved smart tracking, the full PTZ suite of Hikvision analytics, and H.265+ compression technology. 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 combines the signal from each sensor to produce a bright, colorful image in scenes down to 0.001 lux. 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.

Industry-leading features of the other new Hikvision DarkFighter PTZ models include 4K resolution for full color images with greater detail, optical image stabilization to improve stabilization in every situation, and auto-tracking 2.0 for classified targets tracking.

Rapid focus on 8-inch surveillance models delivers instantly sharp image clarity, even after zooming in or following a sudden scene change. By focusing and zooming simultaneously, the camera provides rapidly-focused, highly-detailed imagery to help security professionals and end users reduce or respond to security concerns. Detailed information such as this can more quickly assist in identifying culprits in a breach of security or other incident.
