Hikvision has won the PSI Premier Awards ‘CCTV Product of The Year’ for the third year running. The Hikvision product honoured this year was the Panovu Mini series IR network PTZ camera (DS-2PT3326IZ-DE3), which integrates four cameras into one to provide both panoramic video images for general observation or detection, and close-ups of any areas where more detail is required.
The Hikvision DS-2PT3326IZ-DE3 was chosen by PSI readers – mostly surveillance systems designers and installers – who voted online. With more than 1,000 surveillance professionals voting each year, PSI’s CCTV Product of the Year category is strongly contested, making Hikvision’s achievement even more gratifying. Gary Harmer, Sales Director for Hikvision UK & Ireland, said, “Thanks to everyone who voted for Hikvision and to PSI for running and hosting the awards. We’re constantly innovating to create surveillance products that provide installers and end customers high performance, industry leading features, and excellent value for money. With a keen balance of wide-angle video, close-up footage, and 3D positioning, the DS-2PT3326IZ-DE3 offers all of these benefits – a fact that was recognised by PSI’s readers this year.”
The DS-2PT3326IZ-DE3 offers a range of innovative technology features that are likely to have appealed to PSI’s informed readership. These include 3x fixed lenses that capture panoramic views and 1x central PTZ for capturing more zoomed in views, which collectively support both wide-angle and close-up video. All cameras that are integrated into the product feature crystal-clear video imaging. In addition to these features, the Hikvision DS-2PT3326IZ-DE3 provides a range of industry leading security features that installers and customers value. These include user authentication and IP address filtering, and protection against voltage surges. Finally, but of equal importance, the Hikvision DS-2PT3326IZ-DE3 supports highly efficient audio and video compression. This helps customers minimise their data transmission and storage costs, and lower their overall operational expenditure
