1080p HD, 5MP HDTVI and 4K video performance

Analog CCTV users can now enjoy 5MP HDTVI and 4K video resolution while safeguarding their investment in existing cabling infrastructure.  Hikvision Turbo HD cameras make High Definition video possible without upgrading to IP cameras or even replacing existing cabling structure. Based on HDTVI (High Definition Transfer Video Interface), Though the example in this blog post happens to be at the country’s largest school district, it is easy to see how it would apply to many commercial/industrial situations.

Product features:

  • Send uncompressed, high-resolution video over coaxial cable
  • HD-TVI promises absence of video delay in live viewing, bi-directional signaling, and efficient storage
  • Turbo HD supports up to 1080p resolution at distances over 1500 feet, the HD-TVI signal is especially immune to electromagnetic interference
  • Live video can be viewed in high resolution with zero latency because the video stream is uncompressed.
  • Bi-directional signaling allows for PTZ control and setting camera functions remotely
  • Turbo HD cameras such as the 2CE56D5T-VFIT3 1080p EXIR Varifocal Turret and the DS-2CE16C5T-IT1 720p EXIR Fixed Lens Bullet provide high-definition megapixel video that installs as easily as standard analogue CCTV cameras
  • The smart search feature is another key selling point, as is the ‘tribrid’ technology
  • Tribrid DVRs can save data from standard definition analogue cameras, IP cameras, and HD-TVI cameras simultaneously

A major metropolitan school district found a way to capitalize on existing infrastructure while rolling out a new HD surveillance system. Schools are increasingly turning to video surveillance as a way to promote safety and protect their students, faculty, and physical assets. But installing a new surveillance system, or upgrading an aging one, is a daunting task for any large school district.

To help manage costs, the school district wanted to maximize use of its existing infrastructure. But district officials also wanted the ability to monitor activity in high definition, and its police department needed quick access to footage should an incident occur.

The district began addressing its needs by installing a TurboHD™ surveillance system from Hikvision at one of its high schools. The TurboHD line of products has a foundation in high-definition transport video interface (HD-TVI) technology, which retains the simplicity of analog systems while offering HD video output. Specifically, this technology supports latency-free 1080p HD over up to 1,500 feet (500 meters) of coaxial cable and offers seamless compatibility with traditional standard-definition cameras, HD-TVI–compatible cameras and DVRs, and Hikvision IP cameras. 

This high school is using the TurboHD 1080p PTZ outdoor IR camera (DS-2AE7230TI-A) to cover the parking areas. With an infrared range of 120 meters, this camera is highly suited for nighttime environments and picks up fine details even at a distance. Plus, the camera offers up-the-coax control — revolutionary technology in video surveillance that allows users to control the camera’s pan, tilt, and zoom functions through signals transmitted via coaxial cable. The flexibility afforded by a PTZ camera also makes it an appropriate choice to cover the school’s quad area, which was previously monitored using a fixed camera that provided limited coverage.

The cameras have proven to be cost-effective and better quality than what was being used before, and the first complete installation showcases a mix of standard-definition analog and HD analog equipment working in concert to protect staff and students alike. This system, based on exceptional hybrid technology available from Hikvision, also enables the district to safeguard other critical assets — and to do so remotely.
