The New Hikvision R6 Family of 4MP IP Cameras

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

Hikvision have recently released a new range of 4MP cameras – the R6 family line – which expands upon their existing 2-line range with better WDR resolutions and support for their new H.264+ video compression codec.

We gave the new DS-2CD2742FWD-I (4MP) model a test in the office against the older DS-2CD2732F-I (3MP), and the results are dramatic as you can see here for yourself! It performed far better at all WDR settings and provided a much clearer picture of our strongly back-lit subject.

This new range also supports Hikvision’s new H.264+ Smart Codec which provides a much better compression rate of high definition footage than the previous H.264 Codec. As shown in a recent video, this improvement can save you up to 66% space when compared with the previous iteration, which can obviously go a long way to help reduce the cost of on-going data storage.

The full range of 4MP Hikvision R6 cameras are now available at our webshop. Be sure to check out our YouTube channel for more regular content including product demonstrations, testing, and unboxings!
