From today (12.12.2015) all new orders of the Hikvision Digital IP Dome CCTV range will receive the new 4MP Hikvision model camera at no additional cost.
Previously, the Hikvision Digital Dome cameras we supplied were DS-2CD2132-I and rated at 3MP. Hikvision are constantly pushing the boundaries of new technology and as such, they have replaced this camera with the new and improved DS-2CD2142FWD which is 4MP.
We’re pleased to be able to offer this new upgraded model camera for you at no extra cost compared to the existing 3MP model.
A brief summary of the differences :
DS-2CD2132-I (Older 3MP Hikvision) Maximum resolution : 2048 x 1536 (3MP) Wide dynamic range : Digital WDR Video compression : H264
DS-2CD2142FWD (New 4MP Hikvsion) Maximum resolution : 2688 x 1520 (4MP) Wide dynamic range : 120db Video compression : H264 / H264+
As you can see, the main difference in the two cameras is the resolution and the ability to use the new proprietary Hikvision H264+ codec with these cameras and NVR’s (firmware dependent)
