Dual-Lens IP Camera for People Counting
Hikvision has introduced a dual-lens IP camera for people counting. The innovative technology behind the iDS- 2CD68 10F/C, developed in-house by Hikvision, allows for customized solutions for various commercial sectors.
The Hikvision iDS-2CD6810F/C is equipped with two lenses, making it even more accurate than its predecessor, which was already highly successful in mapping the number of visitors with only one lens.
The dual lens enables the camera to create a three-dimensional image of each object. The innovation mainly lies in the camera’s capability to map the height of a person on the Z-axis, thus excluding any confusion with, for example, shadows or objects, such as baby carriages.
The smart software in the camera allows for effortless counting of everyone present; even the smallest distance between people's heads suffices for the camera to count them as separate persons. In addition, the Hikvision iDS-2CD68 10F/C has the capability to continue monitoring people who change walking direction, so that everyone present in a certain space is counted only once. This makes it the perfect solution for busy commercial spaces such as supermarkets, department stores, shopping centres, railway stations, museums and tourist attractions.
The Dual Lens IP camera reaches an accuracy of more than 97%, is very easy to configure and is very small and compact, measuring only 20 cm in length and 3.5 cm in thickness.
- Image sensor: 1/3" Progressive Scan CMOS
- Maximum resolution: 640 x 960
- Shutter time: 1/25 s – 1/10,000 s
- Available with a 2 mm or 2.8 mm lens
- 3D DNR digital noise reduction
- DC 12V/PoE
- Dual lens, dual CPU, supports stereo views
The camera features the so-called ANR function (Automatic Network Replenishment), which automatically stores data on the flash card of the camera in the event of a network failure, so that no information is lost. Once the network is operational again, the connected Network Video Recorders (NVRs) will retrieve the stored information from the camera.
The camera is equipped with internal storage capacity for over 400 days.
Tonko de Wit, Product Marketer Europe at Hikvision: “Besides excelling in ease of use, our new camera also makes downloading and interpreting stored data easier than ever before. Users can export the information to Excel and can display all information on a daily, weekly, monthly or annual basis, according to their needs. This provides them with a highly detailed overview of the number of people entering, leaving or passing by the premises over a certain period of time."
