The FD9165-HT-A is the new flagship indoor dome network camera from VIVOTEK, equipped with a full HD sensor capable of 1920 x 1080 resolutions at 60 fps. With the most updated VIVOTEK SNV and WDR Pro technology, the FD9165-HT-A is capable of capturing the highest quality images in both low light and high contrast environments.

The FD9165-HT-A also offers the best in night time surveillance technology. By adopting Vari-angle IR technology from VIVOTEK speed domes, the FD9165-HT-A IR illuminators now align with the remote focus lens’ focus angle to provide the best IR image quality at any lens setting. This feature optimizes IR intensity, reduces IR hotspots, and increases the IR effective range up to 50 meters. For indoor applications, the FD9165-HT-A also includes a PIR sensor as well as a built-in microphone, enabling further detection of unexpected events.

Additionally, these series employs VIVOTEK’s Smart Stream III technology and H.265 compression codec, reducing bandwidth up to 90 % while still maintaining excellent image quality. Furthermore, the VIVOTEK VADP (VIVOTEK Application Development Platform) allows users to add customized programs for various applications and user scenarios.

The FD9165-HT-A also now includes a new wave of advanced Video Content Analysis (VCA) – Smart VCA, including intrusion detection, loitering detection, line crossing detection, unattended object detection, missing object detection, face detection. These features are the next steps in elevating surveillance cameras from image capturing devices to advanced notification instruments, allowing users to see more in smarter ways.
