In a move designed to support system specifiers and designers, Hikvision, a supplier of innovative video surveillance products and solutions, has partnered with CCTV design software supplier, JVSG. Hikvision distributors, systems integrators and installers will now be able to use the JVSG’s IP Video System Design Tool, to select any of Hikvision’s 2 Series EasyIP camera range, 4 Series and 6 Series smart network cameras, for inclusion in video surveillance system planning, design and efficiency analysis.
Now available with Hikvision camera parameters such as resolution and focal length embedded into the software, this solution allows designers to easily enhance the level of a planned system’s security and efficiency – using 2D and 3D modelling of an end user’s premises. The solution helps identify optimal camera locations and potential blind spots, the required network bandwidth for any number of IP cameras, and the required HDD storage space needed for video archives.
“We’re glad to offer a quick and easy way for our customers to design their video surveillance systems,” said Greg Luo, Overseas Technical Director at Hikvision. “Helping to visually portray to customers how a particular system specification will fulfill their surveillance requirements, the new software with Hikvision camera selections, is set to provide a new level of design support, to help users optimise imaging performance and overall equipment costs, while providing improved security solutions.”
Max Shumeyko, founder of JVSG said: “I am pleased to announce that IP Video System Design Tool now supports new Hikvision camera models. Hikvision’s solid year on year growth in the video surveillance industry speaks volumes about its commitment and dedication to technology and quality, at the same time keeping the products within affordable range. Along with the easy to use IP Video System Design Tool, the customers would benefit from this excellent combination of security equipment and well-designed projects.”
Hikvision IP cameras come in various resolutions ranging from 2MP to 12MP. Network Bullet Network Dome, Network Turret and Varifocal models can be selected and designed in, and their versatile mix of features, such as choice of fixed lenses, built-in IR, Smart analytics, onboard storage and 12v or PoE, can all be utilised to tailor system performance
