Hikvision Launches Performance Series Thermal Brochure, Available Online: Overviews Thermal Imaging Features Made Affordable

May 15, 2020

Hikvision HikWire blog article Performance Series Thermal brochure

Hikvision has launched a full brochure available online detailing our Performance Series Thermal line. This series makes advanced thermal imaging features affordable, including thermal imaging-based fire detection, temperature monitoring and DeepinView thermal intrusion detection.

Unlike conventional security cameras, thermal video is effective in daylight, complete darkness, rain, fog, smoke, and with dazzling light and moving shadows. And, Hikvision’s proprietary DeepinView technology distinguishes humans and vehicles from other objects moving in or out of specified areas. Thermal imaging makes the technology more effective, and significantly reduces false alarms. Hikvision’s bi-spectrum thermal-optical models also provide full HD color video with IR illumination, combining the best detection and identification capabilities.

 

Specifically designed for short-range detection, our Performance Series Thermal Cameras are best suited and priced for residential, commercial and industrial areas. This groundbreaking camera series packs thermal and optical cameras together with thermal imaging based fire detection, temperature monitoring, cigarette smoking detection, DeepinView intrusion detection and abnormal sound detection.

This series features Hikvision’s outstanding thermal image quality all with a dramatically reduced cost. A few key features are summarized below:

  • Superior Visibility and Image Stability
  • Outstanding Intrusion Detection
  • Prevent Equipment Failure with Temperature Monitoring
  • Prevent Fires Before They Start with Temperature Monitoring
  • and Advanced Fire Detection
  • Reliable Alarms and Video Verification
  • Enable Efficient Allocation of Security Staff
  • Improve ROI with Disaster Avoidance, Reduced False Alarms and/or Predictive Maintenance

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.
