Hikvision Introduces HD-TVI Technology with Turbo HD Product Line

Hikvision USA is proud to announce the launch of Turbo HD, a line of cameras and recorders that utilizes High Definition Transport Video Interface (HD-TVI) technology. This revolutionary technology allows users to send uncompressed, high-resolution video over coaxial cable. The Turbo HD product family is comprised of full HD cameras and DVRs that offer seamless compatibility with multiple video formats, from standard definition analog to HD-TVI to megapixel IP. Other benefits of HD-TVI include absence of video delay in live viewing, bi-directional signaling, and highly efficient storage, adding up to an incredible breakthrough in the evolution of analog transmission.

Where previous HD video over coax methods were limited by cable type and distance, reliability, lack of bi-directional communications, and total system cost, Turbo HD addresses these challenges effortlessly. Supporting up to 1080p resolution at distances over 1500 feet, the HD-TVI signal is especially immune to electromagnetic interference. Live video can be viewed in high resolution with zero latency because the video stream is uncompressed. Bi-directional signaling allows for PTZ control and setting camera functions remotely.

Turbo HD technology is ideal for migration from standard definition to high definition, maximizing return on investment because existing infrastructure doesn’t need to be replaced. Turbo HD cameras such as the 2CE56D5T-VFIT3 1080p EXIR Varifocal Turret and the DS-2CE16C5T-IT1 720p EXIR Fixed Lens Bullet provide high-definition megapixel video that installs as easily as standard analog CCTV cameras.

“I absolutely have not had a single issue installing Turbo HD,” proclaimed Peter Saar, who has been President of Safeside Security in Woodland, CA for 31 years. “I’ve installed Turbo HD in a retirement home, several warehouses, and in a retail chain of five drive-through coffee shops. I’ve got a lot of exciting projects ahead, including a hardware store chain and a credit union with several branches. I can go back to my customers who have poorly-performing analog systems—some of whom may not have the budget to upgrade to IP—and offer Turbo HD as the answer to all their problems. Once they see the high performance of Turbo, they’re hooked,” he added. “The level of detail that can be captured now could never happen on an obsolete analog system: you can make out license plates now. The smart search feature is another key selling point, as is the incredible ‘tribrid’ technology.”

“Tribrid” DVRs are hybrid recorders that make up another key component of Turbo HD. They can save data from standard definition analog cameras, IP cameras, and HD-TVI cameras simultaneously. Aside from the innovative technology, the open HD-TVI platform is another remarkable characteristic of Turbo HD.

“We want to ensure that integrators and end-users are not hindered by proprietary solutions doled out by individual manufacturers,” explained Hiro Kozato, president of Techpoint, the San Jose, CA-based developer of the HD-TVI technology. “We believe the security industry will benefit the most from an open standard, and we’re pleased that Hikvision is leading the way with Turbo HD.”

“Hikvision is committed to manufacturing highly scalable, versatile products that easily adapt to the ever-changing security landscape,” remarked Bob Germain, senior product leader of Hikvision USA. “We are the largest video surveillance manufacturer in the world using HD-TVI. While it’s clear that IP will continue to lead the video surveillance market in terms of technological benefits, we understand that it’s not always a realistic option for our customers. Turbo HD bridges the technology gap by providing a high-quality HD option to for those who want to maximize their existing infrastructure.
