On the morning of 9th January, 2017, Dahua announced the cooperation with Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications (BUPT) in building a Joint Laboratory of Intelligent Video Systems Engineering. Both parties will contribute their technological and business resources respectively, to drive technological innovation of intelligent video content in the civilian security field. The Executive Dean of the School of Computer Science at BUPT, Mr. Ma Huadong, and Mr. Yang Yinchang, General Manager of the Dahua R&D Centre, attended the ceremony and signed the agreement.
Advanced video surveillance solutions
BUPT is one of China’s foremost universities, and is well-regarded in scientific research and technology development. Key research areas include communication software, multimedia technology, Internet of Things, information security, artificial intelligence, and data mining. Being a provider of advanced video surveillance solutions, Dahua has made significant contributions in the advanced video surveillance field. In the last year, Dahua served in the Rio Olympic Games, G20 Summit, as well as other considerable domestic and international security projects.
With Dahua and BUPT agreeing to commit to an initial three-year term, the joint laboratory will be focusing on talent development, apprenticeship, academic exchange, overcoming key technological barriers, and development of industry standards. Dahua will fund the research activities of the joint laboratory. Research results will be shared by Dahua and BUPT.
Intelligent video system
In 2017, Dahua is committed to the promotion of scientific competition, scholarships, talent introductions, and other forms of cooperation.
"The BUPT laboratory is the first joint laboratory Dahua has set up cooperating with other organisations"
Elaborating on the cooperation, Yang Yinchang stated: “Dahua is an application-oriented enterprise. The BUPT laboratory is the first joint laboratory Dahua has set up cooperating with other organisations. Our hope is that with the advantages of academic resources and theoretical research in BUPT, we can promote the technical research of the intelligent video joint laboratory by striving to create the autonomously developed intelligent video system technology solutions. We also see training highly-skilled individuals in intelligent video system research and operation to be of great importance as this will make the joint lab a benchmark for school−enterprise cooperation in the future."
Promoting safety and security
The school−enterprise cooperation provides significant benefits to both Dahua and BUPT. It offers a more effective way to promote technological development in the field of intelligent video surveillance. The security industry is upgrading to a new era of video+. Based on video-centric IoT information service, the era of video+ features multi-dimensional senses and applications. Dahua believes that the school−enterprise cooperation with BUPT will enable Dahua to achieve better performance in the video+ era, and so provide its customers with more advanced products, and services of better quality.
With ongoing commitment to promoting safety and security, Dahua will continue to invest in innovation, contribute to the development of the security industry, as well as continue to enhance safety for the betterment of society.
