The launch of 5 new Wisenet P ultra-high definition 4K AI cameras from Hanwha Techwin can offer new benefits to control room operators and securty personnel, because in addition to capturing effective quality images, the new feature rich cameras are equipped with deep learning video analytics, offer a high level of detection accuracy, helping to minimise false alarms.
The license-free deep learning video analytics simultaneously detects and classifies various object types, including people, vehicles, faces and license plates and is supported by Wisenet AI algorithms unique to Hanwha Techwin which are able to identify the attributes of objects or people, such as their age group, their gender or the colour of the clothing a person is wearing.
The attributes are saved as metadata alongside the images captured by the new Wisenet P AI cameras, enabling users to quickly search for specific objects or incidents. The algorithms are even able to recognise if a person is wearing glasses or is holding a bag.
To further increase operator efficiency, as well as minimise network bandwidth and data storage requirements, the new Wisenet P AI cameras have a Bestshot feature which, as its name suggests, is able to select the best images which have been captured of a person or object, and only send these together with the associated metadata, to a storage server.
Operators are able to take advantage of VMS from leading software developers such as Genetec and Milestone, as well as Wisenet Wave and Wisenet SSM, to forensically search for specific objects or people, by filtering the recorded metadata.
The analytics can be configured to ignore video noise, waving trees, moving clouds and animals, all of which might normally be the cause of false alarms when standard motion detection technology or sensors are being used to detect activity. This ability to minimise time wasting and costly false alarms means control room operators and security personnel are able to focus on responding to real incidents and emergencies.
People counting to help businesses to reopen
Thought is no doubt being given in many businesses now as to how they will be able to safely reopen. Inevitably, social distancing rules will have to remain in place, and this is likely to mean only a specified number of people will be allowed to be in a controlled area at any one time.
With this in mind, the Wisenet AI algorithms built into the new Wisenet P 4K AI cameras can be utilised to accurately count the number of people entering and leaving a premises. The data can be displayed to provide managers with information on the number of people present.
The new Wisenet P AI cameras are likely to be of particular interest to the retail sector as they have been integrated with Wisenet Retail Insight (v2.0), which enables retailers to gain a greater understanding of customer behaviour and buying patterns.
With the exception of the Wisenet PNB-A9001, all models come supplied with a 4.5~10mm (2.2x) motorised varifocal lens which facilitates auto-tracking and allows operators to zoom into a camera’s field of view to see close up detail of any activity and functionality.
“We are proud of all the new innovative products and solutions we have launched over recent months, but this new camera range is a particularly good example of how Hanwha Techwin is continuing its 30 year journey of innovation and adding real value to video surveillance solutions,” said Uri Guterman, Head of Product & Marketing for Hanwha Techwin Europe. “By harnessing the power of Deep Learning AI, we are providing security personnel with an extremely powerful and accurate tool to help them keep one step ahead of intruders and we are also able to provide businesses with information which could help them be more productive.”
