HDCVI 4.0 cameras and recorders at this year’s ISC West in Las Vegas. Bringing six new 4K camera models to the market, the cameras will offer the highest over-coax resolution on the market. Incorporating the latest technology advancements, the HDCVI 4K camera provides numerous benefits by combining superior image resolution and functionality with simplicity of installation and implementation. These cameras feature a new generation of ISP chip technology, developed by Dahua Technology and optimized for video surveillance applications. The in-house chip coupled with leveraging existing coax infrastructures serve to lower the total cost of ownership for the consumer (TCO).

HDCVI 4K cameras have four times the resolution of 1080p with an approximate 16:9 aspect ratio, which represents the highest over-coax imaging resolution in the industry. Our latest advancement of the HDCVI 4K line of cameras features Starlight Technology that produces color images in low light applications (down to 0.005 lux). This is a powerful draw for any application looking for high-resolution video, such as financial and various facilities with mission-critical operations that demand high-resolution video over coax infrastructure.

Key Benefits

Long-Distance Video Transmission

The use of network-based 4K technologies presents a challenge for applications that are not equipped to transmit large amounts of data over conventional IP infrastructure at long distances. Fortunately, the HDCVI Standard enables analog video transmission at impressive distances without requiring the use of repeaters – and enables the transmission of video, audio, and data all over a single RG6 coax cable. The technology enables transmission of 4K-quality video over coax of distances up to 700m (RG6), 500m (RG-59), or 300m using CAT6 cabling.

Wide Coverage Area and Improved Audio

Available in bullet, dome, and eyeball form factors, the new A82A Series of HDCVI 4K cameras are ideal for surveillance of large areas, capturing video with wide-angle overviews and multiple focus points while maintaining the ability to digitally zoom and focus on fine details. The A82A series is equipped with broadcast quality audio. Plus, the Eyeball and Bullet models offer a built-in microphone.

Lower Cost and Flexibility

HDCVI 4.0 technology lowers total cost of ownership (TCO) by leveraging existing infrastructure. By simplifying system design and mitigating rip-and-replacement costs to install new IP infrastructure, HDCVI 4.0 4K cameras can increase performance at a lower overall cost. Plus, the cameras feature a convenient multi-format video output cable on the camera’s pigtail to make switching between AHD, TVI, and CVBS as well as existing HDCVI systems easy.

Data Security

HDCVI cameras do not transmit data over a network, allowing the video feeds from these devices to be better protected against hacking. For organizations that require a hardwired system to ensure data security, HDCVI 4K cameras deployed over coax infrastructure offer the ideal high-resolution surveillance solution.

Storage Solution with HDCVI 4.0 XVR, Offering 4K Recording on All Channels

Dahua Technology is the first to market with an 8-channel and 16-channel recorder that records 4K video on each channel. This Penta-brid recorder supports HDCVI, AHD, TVI, and CVBS video signals and automatically detects the incoming format for easy setup and configuration. The recorder also supports IP video signals, up to 8 MB per channel, and its Smart H.265+/H.264+ video compression ensures efficient storage management. Users can enjoy greater system functionality than would otherwise be possible on an analog system. Some other intelligent features are intrusion detection, virtual tripwire, detection of missing and abandoned objects, and detection of a scene change.  The addition of these smart analytics can dramatically improve overall surveillance and security for virtual application at any facility location.

HDCVI 4.0 Brinks First to Market Total 4k Solution

Dahua ePoE IP systems support a range of up to 800 m (2624 ft) between the ePoE camera and the ePoE network switch or ePoE NVR. This surpasses traditional Ethernet and PoE limitations (both restrict cable distances to 100 m (328 ft) between network ports) and eliminates the need for Ethernet extension devices or additional network switches. This significantly lowers costs as less cables and repeaters are required, and the system takes less time to install.

The Dahua ePoE system is an eco-friendly surveillance system that uses only one cable to connect from front-end to back-end devices. With an EoC Passive Converter (LR1002) which connects to the Ethernet port of an IP camera or network switch on one end and a coaxial cable on the other, analog systems can be easily upgraded to use IP devices while reusing existing coaxial cables. This is a simple and effective solution that delivers seamless plug and play installation, significantly reducing the cost of upgrading from analog to IP.

New Installation Advantages

Dahua’s proprietary ePoE technology provides a lower cost of ownership to users who want longer transmission distances without interruption. Transmitting up to 800 m (2624 ft) without repeaters, ePoE technology makes applications with long distance requirements more affordable. Additionally, ePoE devices are backwards-compatible with standard Ethernet devices, giving you flexibility no matter what your system requires.

Enhanced PoE network camera devices extend connectivity beyond the IP standard distance of 100 m (328 ft) while providing integrated power to the device.

Retrofit Advantages

Dahua’s ePoE technology has the ability to convert coax cabling to a full IP solution. Users who want to migrate to IP don’t have to rip and replace cables. Additionally, longer distances can be achieved compared to standard IP devices.

Power over Coax (PoC) simplifies installation, eliminating the need for a separate power supply cable when reusing coax.

Two LR1002 Passive Converters directly converts between Ethernet and coaxial signals to transmit power and data over a coaxial cable between two ePoE-enabled devices, leveraging existing analog infrastructures.
