Stereoscopic Hikvision IP camera with intelligent image analysis and people counting function
Ceiling IP Camera with People Counting: Hikvision iDS-2CD6810F/C (2mm)
K1705 - Hikvision iDS-2CD6810F/C camera with people counting function
Hikvision iDS-2CD6810F/C K1705 is an IP camera with specialized people counting function based on intelligent video analytics. The camera should be mounted over the monitored passage where it counts the number of people moving in each direction (entering and leaving a zone and passing by). High accuracy has been achieved by using the stereoscopic effect (two lenses). The counting data is collected on the built-in flash memory. The camera can provide statistics on daily, monthly and yearly basis, in the form of graphs and raw data (xls). Integration of the camera with external software (via ISAPI) allows for increased functionality, as well as access to the statistics.
Key features:
  • separate counting of people entering, exiting, and passing by
  • high accuracy thanks to dual lens, dual CPU, support for stereo views
  • built-in flash memory storing counting data
  • microSD card slot for video recording
  • manual or automatic statistics (on daily, monthly and yearly basis)
  • possibility to integrate with external software e.g. for analysis of statistics (via ISAPI)
  • compatibility with iVMS-4200 and iVMS-4500 apps
  • power: PoE or 12 VDC
With the K1705 camera with special function implemented for people counting we monitored visitor numbers at our stand. The local monitor showed the video from the camera, total number of visitors and quantities of people going in opposite directions (the data was collected by the external program), graph of the number of people by time, and the live view of the website banner.

  • the busiest traffic was recorded in the middle of each day and amounted to a maximum of 550 people per hour
  • the number of visitors coming from the left side was higher by more than 80% than from the right, except for the third day when the rate dropped below 40%
  • the observations can be used for:
    • designing next year's stand so that it should be directed towards those coming from the left side
    • matching the number of staff to the changing numbers of visitors during each day
HDTVI 5 MP systems - unparalleled quality of analog video monitoring
High definition (HD) systems have become standard solutions in video surveillance. HD-TVI (High Definition Transport Video Interface) and AHD (Analog High Definition) systems can offer high resolution video (up to 5 MP) for costs comparable with the obsolete analog solutions based on CVBS equipment. The key to the success of these systems have been the connection of advantages of analog video technology (ease of installation and configuration, high compatibility of devices of different manufacturers) with high resolutions characteristic for IP systems, along with increased resistance to interference.
The latest version 3.0 of HD-TVI system supports 5 MP image resolution. Thanks to higher resolution of such systems, they can either employ a fewer number of cameras (each camera with wide viewing angle can cover a larger area) or provide more detailed surveillance information. The live video is not compressed (compression is necessary only for recording), so it is more crisp compared with IP cameras, as well as has no latency.
Key features of HD-TVI 3.0 systems:
  • image resolutions up to 5 MP at 20 fps
  • compatibility with AHD cameras
  • maximum transmission distance longer than in the case of CVBS (RG-59 cable: 800 m for 1080p video)
  • HDTVI 3.0 DVRs support efficient H.264+ codec (lower bit rates minimizing disk space consumption)
  • HDTVI 3.0 DVRs are equipped with a range of video outputs:
    • CVBS - compatibility with legacy CVBS monitors and TV systems
    • HDMI - support for monitors/televisions with resolutions up to 4K
    • VGA - support for VGA monitors with resolutions up to 2K
  • all varifocal lenses of HDTVI 3.0 cameras are of motozoom type

M75771 - compact camera Hikvision DS-2CE16H1T-IT3Z with 5 MP video resolution and motozoom lens
Taking into account industrial applications, the big advantage of the HD-TVI and AHD devices is the use of coaxial cables as the transmission medium. Many facilities are equipped with such wiring (all having older analog video surveillance systems), and the migration to systems based on computer twisted pair cables or optical fibers could be too costly or troublesome. In relation to IP systems, the new analog solutions allow for longer transmission links without intermediate devices (1080p, RG6 - up to 800 meters, compared to 100-meter-long Ethernet connections). Alternatively, the HD-TVI or AHD signals can also be transmitted via twisted pair cables over distances up to 400 meters (using passive transformers - baluns), or via optical fibers up to 20 kilometers - using dedicated video-converters.
DIPOL offers complete ranges of HD-TVI and AHD products. It means a wide variety of cameras with different parameters, placed in various types of housings, suitable DVRs, and multiple accessories, also for changing the transmission medium. The visitors at Energetab had the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the advantages of the new systems and to compare the quality of images from selected cameras.
New series of Hikvision IP cameras:
Easy IP 3.0 and Easy IP Lite
The new series of Easy IP 3.0 cameras provides high quality video for affordable price. Thanks to Dark Fighter (Ultra-low-light) technology, so far available only in special series, the devices are able to render colors and details in low-light environments much more accurately than other cameras at similar price level. The integrated VCA video analytics functions, such as face detection, detection of intrusion, line crossing, new (left) or disappearing objects, allow for implementations of very advanced projects.

K17593 Hikvision DS-2CD2035FWD-I
K17825 Hikvision DS-2CD2T55FWD-I5
Easy IP 3.0 cameras implement several video compression methods, H.265+, H.265, H.264+, H.264, MJPEG. Compared with H.264, H.265 standard can reduce by half the data stream, which translates into proportional savings of the disk space or extended data retention time. H.265+ and H.264+ are Hikvision standards based on the original systems and optimized for CCTV applications. They further minimize the streams in typical video surveillance scenarios.
EasyIP Lite series of Hikvision cameras also provides good performance for even lower price. The series supports motion detection and video tampering detection. The cameras from the series also provide corridor mode and possibility of defining one Region of Interest (ROI).

The both series are supported by Ezviz and Hik-connect services. Ezviz (EasyVision) allows users to access video from the cameras via the Internet, without forwarding router ports. Hik-Connect service provides remote access to the devices in the case of dynamic IP addresses, or allows for the use of domain names in web browsers.
We also presented IP CCTV devices dedicated to customers who seek the cheapest but proven and stable solutions. This group contains universal Signal IP cameras supporting H.265 video compression.
Sunnel ECO is a new budget series of cameras with continually increasing number of models with fixed and varifocal lenses, both in compact (bullet) and ceiling (dome) housings. Parameters of the cameras along with video enhancement functions ensure good results even in difficult lighting conditions. Thanks to corridor mode, they can effectively monitor areas with large disproportion between height/depth and width of the scene (corridors, very high rooms).
Optical fiber - the optimum transmission mediumin any kind of industry Signal Fire AI-7 fusion splicer
Fiber optic cabling is widely used in industrial plants, where there is a lot of electromagnetic interference from various machines, engines, high-voltage lines etc. Aside from the complete immunity to such interference, optical fibers guarantee galvanic insulation between connected devices - there is no risk of damages caused by voltage differences between network segments or by a transfer of voltage surges.
DIPOL is successively launching solutions for fiber optic systems that can be used both by large installation companies operating in this field and by installers who deal with fiber optic solutions occasionally. The latest offered product is Signal Fire AI-7 fusion splicer L5880 combining affordable pricing and technological solutions reserved for top-notch devices.

Industrial switches - equipment for all conditions!
ULTIPOWER industrial switches are capable of reliable operation in harsh environmental conditions typical for many industries, like increased dust levels, high or low temperature, high humidity. Such switches should also be mounted in hermetic enclosures installed on poles or other structures located outdoors. The ULTIPOWER switches are equipped with Ethernet ports (Fast Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet, depending on the model) for connecting IP cameras, computers etc. The industrial switches are protected by housings with IP40 ingress protection rating (against solid foreign objects greater than 1 mm in diameter). All the Ethernet PoE ports can power the connected devices (after supplying the switch with 48-50 VDC). Each of the industrial switches has been equipped with optical module or SFP port converting the transmission medium to fiber.
ULTIPOWER Ethernet industrial switches enable data transmission at rates of 10/100 Mbps or 1000 Mbps. Their RJ45 ports support auto-negotiation and Power over Ethernet (PoE) functions. The devices automatically discover PD devices (Power Device) compliant with IEEE 802.3af standard and supply power to them. This way, it is easy to power network devices located in places without access to AC lines, such as access points, IP cameras, IP phones etc. The switches have been equipped with optical converters or SFP slots for installing modules changing the transmission medium to fiber.
