Hikvision aims to provide solutions that meet the challenges of an evolving business environment to enhance security with innovative and cost-effective solutions. And we provide solutions such as mask detection and temperature screening to help dealers and end users protect employees, customers and assets.

The Fall catalog overviews some of our most popular and well-known product lines and solutions such as our Smart Pro IP Cameras, deep learning technology that fuels accurate video content analytics, and affordable thermal technology. Visit the content summary on page five of the catalog to find the solution that meets your project needs.

Highlights of the catalog include:

  • ColorVu: Hikvision’s ColorVu imaging technology provides crisp, full color, full-motion video in complete darkness, by using a high-performance sensor, a large iris, and gentle supplemental lighting. A selection of Performance cameras and Value PTZs include DarkFighter technology (Powered by DarkFighter) to enhance performance in low light conditions. And Value Series cameras are now available in 8 MP (4K UHD) resolution.
  • Access Control: Hikvision has a complete lineup of access control devices from multi-door control panels and card readers to standalone, fingerprint, video, time and attendance, and temperature screening terminals. These products are compatible with Hikvision’s free iVMS-4200 Client Software.
  • TurboHD: Hikvision’s TurboHD provides HD video and imaging over coax (HD-TVI technology) designed for analog users who want an HD surveillance system without the cost and time of upgrading to IP or replacing existing cabling structures. TurboHD products provide HD video up to 4K over coaxial cable at distances up to 2,600 feet (792 meters). Check out page 70 of the catalog to learn more about the range of TurboHD options.
  • Thermal: Our thermal imaging cameras pack thermal and optical cameras together with thermal imaging-based fire detection, temperature monitoring, cigarette smoking detection, DeepinView intrusion detection and abnormal sound detection. New features included in the PA models include a white strobe light, speaker for automated voice alarms, and improved deep learning algorithms and hardware, all with a further reduced price.

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 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.
