Hikvision Canada is a national sponsor of Security Canada Central, taking place October 23-24, 2019 at the Toronto Congress Centre in Ontario, Canada. The Hikvision team will showcase its 4K solutions, ColorVu, AcuSense, and its award-winning thermal-optical DeepinView network turret camera in the exhibit hall.

Security Canada Central is one of six annual security conferences hosted by the Canadian Security Association (CANASA), a non-profit that supports Canadian security professionals. The conference includes an expo hall, keynote session and multiple Education Flash Sessions on relevant security topics. 

In the exhibit hall at booth #814, the Hikvision Canada team will highlight Hikvision’s 4K (8 MP) Outdoor IR Network Turret Camera (DS-2CD2383G0-I) and the 8 MP Outdoor IR Fixed Dome Camera (DS-2CD2183G0-I). Both camera models provide high definition network output, support H.265+ video compression technology to save on bandwidth and storage, and feature EXIR 2.0 range up to 30 meters (100 feet).

Other newly-launched specialty solutions will be featured at the booth. Hikvision ColorVu imaging technology provides vivid, full-color images and video around the clock, even in zero-light environments, by using a high-performance sensor, a large iris, and gentle supplemental lighting. AcuSense cameras precisely sense human and vehicle movement versus non-human objects such as rain, animals and leaves, providing effective intrusion detection and a reduction in false alarms.

Winner of the 2019 ESX Innovation Award, the Hikvision DS-2TD1217-3/V1 thermal-optical DeepinView turret camera will be on display at the show. The camera is a low-cost, small, thermal-optical (160×120, 1920×1080 resolution) turret camera system, available with 2/3/6 mm thermal lens, including deep learning and GPU-powered video content analysis for efficient perimeter defense, fire prevention, and predictive maintenance with best-in-class image quality at half the price of the Hikvision predecessor.

Other Hikvision performance series thermal cameras will be featured, including the Hikvision DS-2TD2617-3/V1 thermal bi-spectrum network bullet camera equipped with built-in GPU for intelligent behavior analysis, high precision VCA detection, and a real-time alarm.

IMPORTANT! This model requires non-standard firmware. Do Not Install standard firmware (e.g. v.4.1.xx) on this model. Doing so will permanently damage your system. You must use custom firmware v.4.1.25 from the iDS-9632NXI-I8/16S product page.

The I-series NVR (such as the DS-7716NI-I4) is one of Hikvision's most popular and feature-rich recorders. As such, many firmware revisions have been introduced over the years to continually ensure the product is compatible with the newest technology available. Due to the many revisions, we recommend that the user closely follows the instructions below in order to reduce the amount of time spent as well as the chance of failure.

 

Database Optimization and Repair

As more affordable IP cameras are introduced over time with greater video resolution and data sizes, more efficient database management also becomes necessary. The introduction of firmware v4.0 brought about a new database architecture in order to be futureproof.

 

After upgrading to v4.X, the recorder database will need to be converted and optimized. If you are experiencing issues where playback is expected but not found, make sure "Database Repair" is performed as indicated in the procedures and scenarios below.

 

Preparing the Upgrade

Before proceeding with upgrade, it is recommended that NVR configuration file is exported from the NVR over the network or on to a local USB drive.

 

Upgrading from v3.4.92 build 170518 or Older

  1. All recorders must reach v3.4.92 before proceeding further. Upgrading from versions before v3.4.92 directly to any version of v4.X will likely cause the recorder to fail.
  2. If the recorder is already at v3.4.92, a full factory default is highly recommended before upgrading to any version of v4.X. There is a high chance of unit failure (requiring RMA) if the unit is not defaulted before upgrade.
  3. After reaching v3.4.92 and performing a full factory default, an upgrade directly to v4.50.00 is acceptable.
  4. After the upgrade is completed and the recorder is reprogrammed, it may be beneficial to perform a Database Repair. For details, refer to the section "Database Optimization and Repair" above.
  5. To verify repair progress, you may refer to the HDD status, or search the recorder log for repair started and stopped entries. Note that while the HDD is repairing, new recordings are still being made, but some existing recordings may not be searchable until repair is complete.
  6. If you continue to observe playback issues after database repair, ensure there are no power, network, or motion detection issues. Should the problem persist, contact technical support.

 

Upgrading from Any v4.X Build to v4.50.00.

  1. Any v4.X build can be upgraded directly to v4.50.00.
  2. Export configuration is highly recommended before performing the upgrade.
  3. If upgrading from any v4.X version that was not v4.22.005, a Database Repair is recommended. Refer to Step 4 and onwards in the previous section.

 

Downgrading

Downgrading is not recommended. Due to new features and parameters constantly being added, downgrading may cause the NVR to factory default itself or require a manual default to operate properly.
