Support

Details

The Hikvision iDS-7208HUHI-M2/S/A DVR is a modern device for recording video from high resolution cameras (up to 5MP). It has universal channels for video recording in HD-TVI AHD, HD-CVI, CVBS and IP standards. The maximum recording resolution is 8 MP at 8 fps. Other supported resolutions: 5 MP at 12 fps, 3 MP at 18 fps and 1080p/720p/VGA/WD1/4CIF/CIF recording at 25 fps
Key features:
  • HD-TVI signal recording with 8 MP resolution at 8 fps, 5 MP at 12 fps, 3 MP at 18 fps, 1080p and below at 25 fps,
  • AcuSense video analytics based on Deep Learning in 4 channels,
  • Face detection function for one channel (interferes with AcuSense),
  • Support for 4 HD-TVI, AHD or CVBS and 4 IP cameras (max. 6 MP Hikvision cameras or others via Onvif),
    • Analog channels can be replaced with IP channels in a 1:1 ratio (up to 8 channels when the analog ones are off),
    • Enhanced IP mode (interferes with VCA functions): 8 IP channels (up to 16 with analog channels switched off),
  • H.265+/H.265/H.264+/H.264 video compression,
  • Parallel HDMI/VGA output up to 1920 x 1080 pixels,
  • Independent CVBS output,
  • HikConnect cloud support.
Support for a variety of video systems
By default, the DVR supports 8 analog cameras (HD-TVI, AHD, or CVBS signals) and 2 IP cameras (up to 8 MP). If an analog channel is unused, disabling it in the menu adds support for a new IP camera. When all analog channels are disabled, 10 IP cameras can be connected.
Enhanced IP mode
By activating the Enhanced IP mode, the number of supported IP channels is increased. 8 IP cameras up to 4 MP (max. 16 when all analog channels are switched off) are supported, but smart event support on analog channels is disabled and resolution on HDMI/VGA video outputs is limited to 1080p. It can be started only while having a direct access to the DVR menu.
H.265 / H.265 video compression+
The DVR can record one or two video streams (primary and/or secondary) from each channel. The video can be compressed using the H.265 method. Compared with its predecessor (H.264), H.265 can reduce the data stream by half, which translates into proportional disk space savings and extended data retention time. H.265+ can further minimize the streams in typical video surveillance scenarios.
Intelligent image analysis
Each channel can be independently set up for motion detection and VQD (video quality detection, which e.g. can send e-mails or notifications to alert the user whenever the image is out of focus, too bright, or discolored).
Two analog channels can be selected to detect virtual line crossing (and its direction) and intrusion within a rectangular area.
Users can also opt for the Enhanced VCA mode, in which virtual line crossing and intrusion detection are available in four channels. If the mode is switched on, the CVBS output will be disabled.

Sophisticated client software
The iVMS 4200 client software enables users to manage Hikvision devices in IP networks. The software enables the configuration and management of NVRs/DVRs, IP and analog cameras in hybrid systems. The iVMS 4200 utility can remotely manage up to 256 devices on up to 4 monitors. One monitor can display images from up to 64 cameras. Aside from system configuration and live monitoring, the utility can be used for remote playback, notifications, two-way audio transmission, and multi-level e-maps.
The control panel of the iVMS-4200 application
Hik-Connect is a mobile application intended for smartphones with the Android and iOS operating systems. It can be used for the remote live viewing of footage from DVRs, NVRs, network cameras via Wi-Fi, 2G, or 3G networks, as well as the playback of recorded video files. The application connects to the devices by IP addresses and/or through the P2P cloud service.

Working in the cloud
Hik-Connect is also the name of a network service intended for Hikvison devices. The service relies on P2P cloud computing for remote viewing via smartphones and tablets, and provides extensive monitoring and basic configuration options: live viewing (multiple channels), PTZ control, digital zoom, acoustic monitoring, playback of archival video, and alarm notifications (intrusion, line crossing, etc.).
Main features of the Hik-Connect service:
  • only basic network configuration is required,
  • no external IP address or port forwarding are needed,
  • p2p connection via the cloud or smartphone client application Android, iOS,
  • image encryption.
Advanced applications for organizing and operating CCTV systems
Various applications intended for the installers and operators/users of video surveillance systems based on Hikvision devices are described in our library.

The main window of the SADP software
SADP (Search Active Device Protocol) is a free, easy-to-use utility designed to search for Hikvision IP cameras and DVRs/NVRs in the local network. The network device search tool can also be used to modify device network parameters, e.g. to change or recover default passwords. Detailed information on the software, its use and password recovery (par. 8) can be found in the following article: SADP application - LAN tool for organizing CCTV systems based on Hikvision devices.
