Hikvision Wins Twin Accolades

Prestigious Innovative Achievement Award at the 2019 Detektor International Awards

Hikvision has been awarded the Innovative Achievement Award for its thermal and optical network Turret camera at the 2019 Detektor International Awards in Sweden.

The award was given in the category of Alarm and Detection. About the Hikvision camera, the jury said, “Through a combination of smart analytics, and thermal and optical technologies, Hikvision succeeds in offering an impressive solution for early detection and optimum performance.”


Marcel Wiechmann, Thermal Products Manager at Hikvision Europe was present at the ceremony to receive the award. He said, “Hikvision is excited to receive this accolade. Our innovative thermal and optical network Turret camera was launched in July to empower security teams to stop a fire before it’s truly started. It’s also very cost-effective with such advanced fire detection. We’re delighted that this product has been so well recognized by the security industry.”

The award winning Hikvision camera DS-2TD1217-2/ V1 enables rapid indoor fire detection through bi-spectrum technology, which captures images using both thermal radiation and visible light. By displaying optical and thermal images together through image fusion or picture-in-picture, the camera helps safety personnel to quickly pinpoint the source of a fire. Importantly, the camera also triggers an alarm once the temperature goes higher than a user-set limit – potentially allowing personnel to prevent ignition or combustion.

In addition, the camera contains a built-in GPU for running the Hikvision deep learning algorithm in order to support indoor monitoring and advanced intrusion detection. Equipped for double duty – both fire detection and intrusion detection – this camera is highly recommended for indoor solutions, especially in application scenarios such as warehouses, museums, data centers, and offices.

Explosive Performance of Hikvision Smart Thermal Camera at GIT Security Awards 2020

Hikvision also won the GIT Security Award for its thermal explosion proof camera (DS-2TD2466T-25X). In a vote by GIT’s security professional readers, the product was hailed as the winner in the ‘Fire and Explosion Protection’ category of the popular annual awards.

One focus of the awards is innovation in products – and the Hikvision camera does not disappoint. It uses a vanadium oxide uncooled focal plane sensor to deliver enhanced thermal image quality. It also uses a smart fire detection algorithm to identify potential fire risks by monitoring irregular temperature rises in a sensitive area.

The camera adopts 316L stainless steel material to meet the requirements of environments that have a risk of explosion, like chemical plants, oil depots and gas stations.

Allen Xue, Hikvision DACH Area Manager said, “We are honoured to receive this award from GIT Security. The fact that this is the result of voting from GIT readers – representing our customers – makes it even more poignant. It’s also interesting that video surveillance cameras do not usually win in the fire prevention category, and we believe this reflects the innovative nature of our products. We pride ourselves on using our innovation to solve customer problems, and this award is testimony to that goal.”
