What is an EXIR Technology | Meaning | Definition

EXIR technology is the latest technology for security cameras that is the most innovative in terms of levels of night-time surveillance that you can buy on the market today. The improved illuminators allow for any dark environment to increase visibility.

Hikvision have now recently introduced this EXIR infrared technology into their network security cameras. In comparison to ordinary security cameras, these new Hikvision EXIR security cameras are the most advanced cameras available on the marketplace today.


Conventional cameras use LEDs which do not focus primarily on the lens patterns. This results in a picture which has brightness with illumination in the centre of the image. The new EXIR system by Hikvision allows for a much more evenly dispersed illumination which creates a rectangular pattern.

There are some main benefits of EXIR technology which include:

Objects will appear more evenly illuminated than in conventional cameras. This will ensure there is light on the edges of the frame and not just in the centre.

The EXIR technology allows for a 30% increase in illumination efficiency, which is a much more efficient light source along with enhanced LED light strength. Another added benefit is EXIR offers 1050mV compared to 750mV in regular light extraction. This means stronger light and further range of visibility.

The new rectangular shaped lenses mean better overall light usage. Hikvision EXIR includes a LED light in the shape of a rectangle that fit’s a normal screen size. This reduces light pollution and improves utilization efficiency.
