Hikvision unveils Turbo HD 4.0 Solution



Hikvision has launched its Turbo HD 4.0 range which has essential features and functionalities like ultra-low light performance and the ability to send power as well as 8MP video images over the conventional coaxial cable. The Turbo HD 4.0 products also take advantage of Hikvision’s revolutionary H.265+ video compression technology, which provides significant savings on both bandwidth usage and storage requirements.


The Turbo HD 4.0 products include 8-megapixel box and varifocal bullet cameras, and DVRs with 4K UHD HDMI outputs. The 8MP cameras offer the highest resolution available in an analog surveillance system. Models equipped with Hikvision-patented Power over Coax 2.0 (PoC) capabilities also allow users to transmit both UHD video and power over the same coaxial cable. As with previous Hikvision Turbo ranges, Turbo HD 4.0 products support IP, analog, Turbo HD, and third-party AHD cameras, providing a highly flexible upgrade path.


The Turbo HD 4.0 range not only supports the latest generation H.265 video compression standard, but also offers Hikvision’s revolutionary H.265+ video technology. H265+ dramatically improves encoding efficiency: reducing bandwidth requirements by up to 75% compared to H.264, and taking up half as much storage space for the same amount of video footage. Bitrates are reduced but transmission quality remains high. It brings Hikvision’s ultra-low light recording capabilities to cameras using coaxial cable.
