Peter Pan, Global Technology Partner Alliance Director at Dahua Technology, believes that there are no limits on video analytics solutions. “The industries are interested in comprehensive solutions that respond to specific use cases. Dahua Technology wants to listen to the market and add value together with technology partners. This flexibility and customer-oriented approach is possible thanks to our Dahua Hardware Open Platform Community.”

Classic image analysis

The debut of the platform dates back to 2018. Since then, significant technical adaptations have been made and the camera performances have been optimised. A team of engineers has also managed to enable most of the recent Dahua cameras with 3rd party embedding options and this will be standard in the future. The Belgium based video analytics company ACIC was one of the DHOP partners.

Christophe Parisot, Chief Technology Officer of ACIC, looks back on this partnership. "ACIC is a global player in the VCA solutions sector. Our solutions, based on classic image analysis coupled with artificial intelligence, are at the cutting edge of technology. Our customers entrust us to provide their projects with ACIC's cost-effective solutions of various verticals embedded on Dahua cameras.
