8 MP High Definition
Can deliver 4K (4096 × 2160 resolution) footage at up to 25 fps for highly detailed CCTV surveillance in wide spaces with challenging recording conditions

Tilt & 36x Zoom
Features full pan & tilt functionality. Offers 36x optical zoom so you can capture incredible subject detail over large open areas. Ideal for large venues, roads, railways and stations, airports, recreation grounds, campuses and industrial sites, which would otherwise need multiple cameras

Smart Detection and Tracking
Supports edge recording and alerts with configurable smart detection methods including Hikvision's latest triggering options like movement, intrusion and line crossing detection

Smart IR
Automatically reduces intensity for closer subjects, preventing them from becoming overexposed and losing detail

200m Night Vision
Powerful IR LEDs are mounted behind a special anti-reflective screen and illuminate a distance up to 200m, providing huge night vision range. Perfect for unlit outdoor spaces and enabling 24-hour footage of exposed areas

Low Lux Sensor
Advanced imaging chip can record pictures in conditions as dark as 0.005 Lux before having to switch to night vision, helping you record in colour for more hours of the day. Low-light images have less noise and require less bandwidth with 3D noise reduction

Wide Dynamic Range
WDR technology retains the level of clear detail across images in challenging lighting conditions thanks to high contrast lighting

Easy Remote Control
Camera movements can be controlled using a PC or smartphone app, via a recorder, or with a dedicated hardware controller through Hikvision's iVMS-4200 Video Management Software

High Power over Ethernet
Camera draws power from the network connection via Hi-PoE, so you don't need to run multiple cables to the camera

Full Description

Keeping a highly detailed watch over wide open spaces such as roads, railways and stations, airports, recreation grounds, campuses, industrial sites and large event venues, usually requires the tedious installation of lots of different CCTV cameras everywhere. Not with this dapper DarkFighter!

With its many incredible features, this is most definitely not your average camera. Hikvision’s DarkFighter can deliver a whopping 8 megapixel quality of video footage at up to 25 frames per second. Add some flexible pan, tilt and 36x optical zoom functions, and you won’t miss a thing.

No matter how large or far the exposed area of interest, you are sure to get clear, seriously detailed images. Besides, Smart IR automatically reduces intensity for closer subjects, preventing them from becoming overexposed and losing detail.

Challenging lighting conditions? No problem, thanks to wide dynamic range technology and 3D noise reduction. This round-the-clock DarkFighter boasts true day/night functionality with Smart integrated infrared LEDs providing up to 200m of night vision.
What’s more, with the Low Lux sensor and advanced imaging chip, you’ll get full colour recordings for more hours of the day, as this camera can fight darkness to as low as 0.0005 Lux before having to switch to night vision.

Harsh weather conditions or other kinds of demanding external factors don’t scare this fierce fighter either. The camera is housed in a strong, metal IP67-rated casing, complete with built-in wiper for self-cleaning! It doesn’t stop there. How about some added Smart Defog technology, EIS (Electronic Image Stabilisation), and hammerproof IK10-protection, withstanding the boldest of vandals? This nifty thing has it all.

For ultimate scene awareness, you can configure Hikvision’s latest Smart Detection methods, including motion, intrusion, and line crossing trigger technology. It supports edge recording and real-time alerts which can also be set up as email notifications.

Any more smart functions? Yup. This evolved PTZ camera also features Audio I/O, face detection, audio exception, and Smart Tracking, which enables the camera to detect and follow any progressively moving object. Surveillance just raised its Top Security game.

Recordings can be stored on-board with an in-built card slot supporting MicroSD cards up to 256GB (cards not included). Very handy as a storage backup, plus, you won’t need an external recorder. The system also offers NAS and ANR storage options.
Oh yes, and the latest H.265+/H.265 video compression technology allows storage of more and better quality footage in the same space.

Moreover, this mega camera features High Power-over-Ethernet (Hi-PoE), and easy remote access via free Hikvision iVMS-4200 video management software.

We can go on about it some more, but the DarkFighter PTZ cam with all its benefits really speaks for itself. If you need to easily record more detail over larger areas, with all the clever functions imaginable, this dazzling device will rock your socks off.

Please note: Hikvision’s DarkFighter has a 1 week lead time, and is not provided with a power supply, so you can contact our sales team to discuss which power supply options best suit your needs.
