Hikvision ColorVu Cameras’ powerful ability to capture details in low lighting comes from two specific breakthroughs in hardware technologies: advanced lenses and high-performance sensors. Coupled with a supplemental light for extremely dark scenarios, ColorVu cameras guarantee video with colorful details when you need them.
Hikvision’s ColorVu technology helps users protect people and property by capturing high-quality, full-color video 24/7 with the same sharp rendering at night time as in daylight. Now, combine ColorVu with (“+”) other Hikvision’s advanced technology (“X”) and amazing possibilities emerge. In other words, as one plus one equals amazing!
That’s how “ColorVu+X” works, delivering unmatched value to the security market with more options than ever. Cameras powered by these technologies render clear imaging with vivid details for video evidence, improved alarm accuracy for real security threats, and video search efficiency, taking your security above and beyond what was previously possible. Versatile products and solutions are introduced with optimized performance to tackle more common security concerns in residences, office buildings, parking lots and many more.
Hikvision’s panoramic cameras with ColorVu harness pioneering pixel-level image registration technology with Hikvision’s image fusion algorithm to stitch together a 180-degree horizontal field of view, delivering brilliant and seamless panoramas with more lively details. Wide-area security footage helps improve situational awareness and reduces the amount of cameras required for comprehensive monitoring, aiding cost efficiency.
Varifocal cameras adapt to various scenarios by changing the camera’s focal length. Hikvision’s Varifocal Cameras with ColorVu are designed with fixed F1.0 large aperture, which guarantees image brightness while the camera zooms in or out.
ColorVu-enabled cameras render vivid color images in dim light, even down to 0.0005 lux – that’s the same lighting as a moonless, starlit night. This incredible capability to intensify minimal ambient light is achieved through two advanced features:
Combining ColorVu technology with AcuSense, cameras are able to capture human & vehicle targets with vivid color. Connected to Hikvision’s back-end products, users will enjoy improved details in video playback and more efficient footage searches.
AcuSense-powered Motion Detection 2.0 distinguishes human beings and vehicles from other objects in any given environment, focusing on real security threats, and enables efficient video searches. Models equipped with Live Guard deter trespassers with visual and auditory warnings while sending notifications to users remotely.

From townhouses to multi-family homes to apartments, residential buildings often have several low-light areas that can be potentially risky as they are difficult to monitor in the darkness. This includes narrow walkways, stairwells, and other outdoor areas. Cameras with ColorVu provide unmatched monitoring where incidents or accidents occur and illuminate dark areas to reduce risks and improve safety for tenants and visitors. Higher quality imaging improves suspect identification when needed, providing a safer environment for residents.
Users can monitor entrances and exits as well as dimly-lit interior and exterior areas where theft or other crimes occur – dark hallways and walkways, dumpster areas, and loading docks. Enjoy better illumination with ColorVu cameras while they protect your employees, customers and assets, helping them feel safe around and within your property.
Parking lots are difficult to protect for many reasons. But ColorVu uses sophisticated supplemental lighting to make parking areas easier to secure. This means there is no need for additional lighting to capture high-quality, full-color images. ColorVu’s natural, supplemental lighting will not interfere with a driver’s vision, as opposed to harsh, bright, or discolored lights. All these features reduce costs and ensure high-resolution, detailed imagery – such as the color of a person’s clothing or the color of a car – and everything is recorded for forensic review when necessary.
Strategically placed cameras with ColorVu illuminate areas with limited lighting that pose risks for accidents or other incidents such as walkways, play areas, entrances to restrooms and exercise areas. Improved illumination during the evening and nighttime helps members of the community feel safe and comfortable.
