Hikvision HikWire blog article 2nd Generation DeepinView Cameras Help to Deter Crime, Enhance Service, and Improve Security

Hikvision’s DeepInView Camera Series hosts an AI chipset in each unit, with 6-in-1 switchable algorithms, stunning image performance, and cost-effective pricing. Business intelligence data and other applications help end users reduce costs, improve efficiency, and implement speedy and effective incident response.

The cameras include an AI chipset that supports six different Deep Learning algorithms in one housing. An algorithm can be enabled manually for dedicated use and changed to another one as needed for greater flexibility in any situation. One camera can deliver different features, and each is equipped with DarkFighter technology for clear images in low lighting or changing lighting conditions. DeepinView cameras also feature EXIR 2.0, H265+ video compression technology, support for metadata, five video streams, and up to five custom streams for easy third-party integration. Seamless streaming improves video quality across varying network conditions. IPCs can also smooth and complete videos through smooth streaming technology when the network bandwidth is insufficient, or when the network environment is not stable. Key benefits include:

  • Multi-Target and Multi-Type Detection Plus Attribute Search: Capable of detecting multiple targets and multiple types of targets at once using embedded deep learning algorithms, DeepinView cameras detect people in specified regions and outputs. The cameras use AI to recognize attributes such as clothing color, age, and if a person is wearing a backpack, hat, or glasses. Searching video for up to 15 different attributes is easy and effective for applications like malls, casinos, and crowded streets.
     
  • Perimeter Protection and False Alarm Reduction: Monitor specific areas with alarms triggered by human only, vehicle only, or human and vehicle to greatly reduce false alarm notifications, improve the video verification process, and enhance alarm response efficiency for alarm monitoring companies.
     
  • Queue Management: Helps businesses better understand customer wait times, optimize staff levels, and enhance customer experience and satisfaction. It is also capable of providing loitering detection.
     
  • Attribute Based People Counting: Supports people counting when entering and exiting a specified area within a certain timeframe. The camera sends a threshold alarm if people density becomes too high, alerting businesses to reduce occupancy to comply with social distancing and other safety requirements.
     
  • ePTZ Auto Tracking: Auto tracking of people or vehicles via ePTZ displays more event details of targeted objects under limited bandwidth. It also saves storage space by only storing video clips of important, tracked objects.

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.
