Hikvision has been awarded the Innovative Achievement Award for its Thermal & Optical Network Turret Camera at the 2019 Detektor International Awards in Sweden.
The award was given in the category of Alarm and Detection. About the Hikvision camera, the jury said, “Through a combination of smart analytics, thermal and optical technologies, Hikvision succeeds in offering an impressive solution for early detection and optimum performance.”
The award winning Hikvision camera DS-2TD1217-2/V1 enables rapid indoor fire detection through bi-spectrum technology, which captures images using both thermal radiation and visible light. By displaying optical and thermal images together through image fusion or picture-in-picture, the camera helps safety personnel to quickly pinpoint the source of a fire. Importantly, the camera also triggers an alarm once the temperature goes higher than a user-set limit – potentially allowing personnel to prevent ignition or combustion.
