San Francisco, June 6, 2023 – When it comes to video surveillance, having the right PTZ (Pan-Tilt-Zoom) camera can make all the difference. In the quest for the perfect PTZ camera, HIKVISION emerges as a leading innovator with their TandemVu PTZ series. These cameras incorporate Hikvision’s next-generation design, offering a seamless integration of multiple lenses within a single security camera. Let’s explore the exceptional features of the TandemVu PTZ cameras and why they are top picks for 2023.

One of the standout features of the TandemVu PTZ cameras is their ability to capture both the big picture and small details simultaneously. By leveraging multi-lens synergy, these cameras provide expansive panoramas while maintaining the ability to zoom in for intricate views. Whether you require a wide view of an expansive site or a close-up inspection, the TandemVu PTZ cameras have you covered.

With a panoramic channel supporting a 180° ultra-wide view, users can monitor large areas with ease. The smart linkage feature enables automatic target detection through the panoramic channel, instantly followed by target tracking via the PTZ channel. This seamless transition ensures comprehensive situational awareness, allowing users to stay one step ahead at all times.

When it comes to low-light environments, the TandemVu HIKVISION PTZ Cameras shine. Equipped with ColorVu and DarkFighter technology, these cameras conquer darkness and provide exceptional image quality. ColorVu technology enables the cameras to capture color images overnight, thanks to the fixed F1.0 lens that maximizes light intake. DarkFighter technology ensures vivid details even in low-light conditions, allowing users to pan, tilt, and zoom without compromising image quality.

Additionally, the TandemVu PTZ cameras offer switchable-intelligence, combining multiple powerful intelligent functions in a single camera. From perimeter protection to person and vehicle detection, and even ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) and traffic violation detection, users can easily select and activate the specific functions they require, ensuring a customized surveillance experience.
