Hikvision Canada will showcase its latest security technology, including its award winning thermal-optical DeepinView turret camera, at the 7th annual Manitoba Building Expo taking place on Tuesday, Oct. 29 in Winnipeg at the Victoria Inn and Convention Centre in Manitoba, Canada.

At Booth #121 in the exhibit hall, the Hikvision Canada team will showcase its latest security technology including AcuSense cameras, which 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. The Hikvision DS-2CD2346G1-I/SL 2.8mm lens Indoor AcuSense Fixed Turret Camera will be highlighted at the booth, which supports H.265+ video compression for bandwidth and storage savings, as well as smart features such as line crossing and intrusion detection. The SL model also features strobe light and an audio alarm message to enhance deterrence. Once a potential intruder has been accurately detected, the AcuSense camera triggers the built-in strobe light and audio alarm designed to warn the intruder before they act.

The team will also showcase the Hikvision DS-2CD2347G1-L(U) ColorVu Outdoor Fixed Turret Camera that features an ƒ/1.0 lens aperture for maximum light gathering to provide full color imaging in extremely dark settings. Hikvision ColorVu imaging technology delivers 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.

Hikvision’s DS-2TD1217-6/V1 Thermal-Optical DeepinView Network Turret Camera with 6 mm lens will be on display. The 3 mm lens version was a winner of the recent 2019 ESX Innovation Award. This thermal-optical series is a low-cost, small, thermal-optical (160×120, 1920×1080 resolution) turret camera system, available with 2/3/6 mm thermal lens options, 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.

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.
