Hikvision’s DS-2CD2T87G2-L ColorVu Gen2 fixed bullet camera with 2.8mm lens (there’s a 4mm option), 60 metres of white light and 8MP resolution has arrived at SEN for testing.

This camera is a step up from the ColorVu Gen1 with an all-alloy body rated to IP67, as well as the ability to handle strong backlight thanks to 130dB of WDR. Other features include H.265+ compression, a 102 degree field of view and an operating temperature of -30 to 60C.

ColorVu Gen2 features Acusense technology, which is a deep learning algorithm able to distinguish pedestrians, vehicles and objects and report events based on rules around what they do. Video clips are sorted into categories – people and vehicles. Users click one of these categories and use time or location data to quickly locate the clip they need, making searches faster, as once set up, an Acusense camera filters events automatically.

Smart features include motion detection (human and vehicle), video tampering alarm, exception (network disconnected, IP address conflict, illegal login, HDD full, HDD error), Smart Event Scene change detection, deep learning function, face capture, line crossing detection, intrusion detection, region entrance detection, and region exiting detection.
