Eye level camera can see faces clearly

July 19, 2017 Views:170

 

Hikvision, the world’s leading supplier of innovative video surveillance products and solutions, has launched the latest of its covert camera range - a Height Strip Camera. This can be easily adjusted to eye level, giving a clearer view of the face, even when a person is wearing a cap or hood.


The camera is ideal for scenarios like shops, hotels and banks where a fleeing person’s detailed facial image could be captured for post-search.


Traditionally, ceiling mounted cameras are used in these scenarios, but often, due to the viewing angle, facial features cannot be clearly seen. Having a covert camera mounted at eye level solves this problem. The camera pan angle can be adjusted to ±15 degrees, so that the optimum viewing angle can be found for every scenario.


The camera features also include:

• 1/2.7” Progressive Scan CMOS
• Max. 1920 × 1080@30fps
• WDR, up to 120dB
• DC 12 V, PoE
• Built-in micro SD/SDHC/SDXC card slot, up to 128GB.


A Hikvision Product Manager said: “Sometimes a scenario calls for small, covert cameras, either due to space, discretion or to remove the feeling that an area is dangerous. Our new camera is adjustable so that the camera can be placed at the right height for any application to capture unobstructed facial images.”


Uniting intelligence, wide range, effectiveness and ease of use, Hikvision’s IP Smart Covert Cameras are redefining video surveillance and setting new standards in the market. Thanks to their state-of-the-art technology and small size, they are able to deliver outstanding image quality even in circumstances where discretion or particular set-up requirements preclude the use of conventional video equipment, such as in the surveillance of cash machines and retail locations and control of critical access points.
