System Health Monitoring displays a system’s health status and helps support teams respond to customer issues more quickly. New embedded Chromium browser is compatible with most web pages and applications. Operators can now combine web-based interfaces with a system for ‘soft integrations’ of devices and services. “With mobile push notifications, every time the camera sees someone not wearing a face mask, it can send out a notification to a mobile app user,” comments Cooke. “Using the combined power of our AI cameras allows us to do very powerful analytics on lower cost processors like those inside an NVR.”
Hanwha Techwin America, a supplier of IP and analogue video surveillance solutions, will debut its next generation Wisenet 7 SoC (System on Chip). Built from 30 years of innovation in video surveillance solutions, the highly anticipated announcement sees the continuation of the Wisenet line of custom-built SoCs designed specifically to address the unique challenges of the security market. New key features include cybersecurity features, clear images in all lighting conditions, improved lens distortion correction and more. High levels of protection “Hanwha Techwin concentrated on image quality and cybersecurity when developing Wisenet 7. This enables us to make the smartest and most secure video cameras on the market today while giving us a platform for further innovation as we react to these challenging times,” said Ray Cooke, Vice President - Products, Solutions, and Integration, Hanwha Techwin America. Hanwha Techwin established its own device certification issuing system to embed certificates Wisenet 7 offers end-to-end cybersecurity with high levels of protection including secure boot, OS, storage, and JTAG, plus a signed firmware/open platform app and more. Hanwha Techwin established its own device certification issuing system to embed certificates and encryption keys into the product during the manufacturing process. When firmware is installed and a certificate is verified, it uses these encryption keys which can never be reprogramed. Forensic-level image quality This creates a trusted platform module that separates the end-user side of the camera application from the network (Linux). This OTP (One Time Program) feature provides a unique level of cybersecurity that is secure by default and only possible when utilising a custom chip. Wisenet 7 offers forensic-level image quality by utilising multiple combined technologies. Digital Overlap and Scene Analysis technology reduces motion artifacts and improves picture quality in low light conditions. Dynamic Range is maximised and noise is reduced when composing multi-frame images captured at varying exposures by processing line by line vs. each frame. This minimises motion blur and improves edge and colour definition of objects, making them easier to identify when viewing live video and during forensic review. Hybrid motion detection Temporal filtering removes or attenuates frequencies within the raw signal that are not of interest XCE (eXtreme Contrast Enhancement) technology is utilised to analyse the back-light area of the image and enhance contrast by analysing nearby pixel colour values in the surrounding area. Wisenet 7 employs motion history-based temporal filtering to analyse the motion data of moving objects in low-light environments. Temporal filtering removes or attenuates frequencies within the raw signal that are not of interest. A new Noise Adaptive Hybrid Motion Detection algorithm significantly reduces sensor noise. These clearer images improve the results for object recognition performance in low light and offer maximum performance for machine and deep learning algorithms. Demanding security applications Wisenet 7 corrects barrel distortion common with wide angle lenses up to 100% at all resolutions. The correction is done in-camera to provide a video output more closely representing how humans perceive images across a wide field of vision. “The first Hanwha Techwin Wisenet SoC was released in 2010 in response to the unique requirements of security professionals. Our focused development efforts have continued as technology and business needs have evolved to where we are today. Our most powerful SoC ever, Wisenet 7, delivers a new level of quality, performance and cybersecurity to our industry,” concludes Cooke. The first Wisenet 7-based cameras (XNB-9002/8002, XND-9082RV/8082RV, XND-9082RF/8082RF, XNV-9082R/8082R, XNO-9082R/8082R) offer up to 4K high-resolution video providing clear and vivid images suitable for the most demanding security applications.
Hanwha Techwin America, a global supplier of IP and analogue video surveillance solutions, announced a line of 4K AI cameras. Part of the Wisenet P series, the new AI-based cameras capture pristine images at up to 4K resolution while including powerful, in-camera deep learning algorithms for advanced object detection, classification and error-free analytics. Utilising object recognition versus motion detection all but eliminates false alarms while also providing valuable business and operations insight. AI cameras analytics “Our new AI cameras have solid performance in both analytics and deep learning applications,” said Ray Cooke, Vice President - Products, Solutions, and Integration, Hanwha Techwin America. “The included, licence-free analytics detect and classify a range of objects including people, vehicles, licence plates, and faces. This technology will provide more reliable edge based intelligence, and open new opportunities in security as well as business and operations intelligence.” Unique attributes of the objects are also stored as metadata alongside the video information including: Colours of people’s clothes for both top and bottom People’s clothing length for both top and bottom People wearing of glasses or not People wearing or carrying a bag Age group Gender Vehicle types Vehicle colours Hanwha’s plugin for Video Management Software This metadata can be read by a VMS server and used in post-event forensic search to significantly reduce time spent investigating specific events. Wisenet P series AI cameras offer integration with Wisenet WAVE and other popular VMSs from Milestone and Genetec using Hanwha’s plugin. As businesses re-open with new policies regarding social distancing and occupancy limits, it’s never been more important to accurately count customers and employees as they enter and exit the premises. Unlike traditional, imprecise methods of people counting with dedicated overhead cameras, the Wisenet P series AI cameras deliver the accuracy with people counting based on the camera’s AI object detection algorithm. Reducing Server bandwidth for analytics Wisenet P series AI cameras are equipped with a ‘BestShot’ feature which ensures that only the most suitable image of classified objects is sent to a backend server. The full video image can be up to 4K resolution to see details of objects, along with tagged attributes metadata. Users have the option to set the image resolution to less than 4K for full video streaming or use BestShot to minimise bandwidth and storage requirements for server-based analytics. Additional key features include: Digital auto-tracking: provides two simultaneous streams of video, enabling operators to see the camera’s full field of view, whilst simultaneously viewing a Full HD digital PTZ auto-tracked image of a person or vehicle Upgraded Business Intelligence: integration with Wisenet Retail Insight providing gender and age group counting 12V DC power supply (50mA max): provides power for external sensors including LEDs, PIR sensors, and glass break detectors, eliminating the need for an additional power supply AI Dome cameras series The new Wisenet P series AI cameras are available in the following configurations: PND-A9081RV – 4K AI dome camera with built-in IR illumination PND-A9081RF – 4K AI flush-mount AI dome camera with built-in IR illumination PNV-A9081R – 4K AI vandal-resistant dome camera with built-in IR illumination PNO-A9081R – 4K AI bullet camera with built-in IR illumination PNB-A9001 – 4K AI box camera

At GSX 2019, Hanwha Techwin America, a global supplier of IP and analog video surveillance solutions, will announce a line of AI cameras. The new cameras recognise humans versus vehicles, faces, license plates and more, greatly enhancing the accuracy of video analytics over previous generations. The PNO-A9081 series features 4K resolution while the PNO –A8081 series features 5MP resolution. Both camera models include 2.2x zoom with motorised varifocal lenses (4.5~10mm, F1.6). The new AI algorithms can discern human beings as distinct objects separate from their surroundings because they have been exposed to thousands of images of humans. With this additional data, the cameras can support advanced rules about the movement of cars and the movements of people within the same image. “Analytic alerts can be more useful when we can be selective about the objects that matter to you,” says Ray Cooke, Vice President - Products, Solutions, and Integrations at Hanwha Techwin America. “For example, trucks passing by in either direction near a loading zone might be expected behaviour, so in this case you do not want motion from trucks to trigger an event. But we are now making alerts more selective, so if a person enters the area, an analytic event would be triggered.” With deep learning and neural networks, we have achieved a new level enhanced analytics and data gathering.” Quick and efficient installation The new AI cameras also tell users more about the objects they detect. They recognise types of vehicles such as a bus or car and the colour of a vehicle as well. This additional metadata reduces the time to search video for objects of interest to minutes instead of hours. “When speaking to end users about analytics, many still don’t take full advantage of them,” says Cooke. “Often, this is because of the false-positives with previous generation technology, or previous generation alerts not being selective enough for what they need to know from their cameras. With deep learning and neural networks, we have achieved a new level enhanced analytics and data gathering.” The new cameras utilise Hanwha’s modular design, which enables quick and efficient installation and future maintenance. Highlighted features and models: PNO-A9081R, PNV-A9081R, PND-A9081RV, PND-A9081RF: 4K, 2.2X M-V/F (4.5~10mm, F1.6), AI, PoE+ PNO-A8081R, PNV-A8081R, PND-A8081RV, PND-A8081RF: 5MP, 2.2X M-V/F (4.5~10mm, F1.6), AI, PoE+
