Hanwha Techwin, a global supplier of IP and analogue video surveillance solutions, has expanded and updated its line-up of P series AI cameras with five new 2 MP HD models. A follow-up to the premium 4K P series AI cameras announced in 2020, the new cameras present a cost-effective entry point into the powerful world of AI-based camera technology. Hanwha P series AI cameras Hanwha P series AI cameras include licence-free video analytics based on deep learning that can detect various object types, such as people, vehicles, faces and licence plates, as well as identify unique object attributes, such as a person’s age group, gender and clothing colour, or a vehicle’s type and colour. The cameras offer enhanced people counting, queue management and heat-map functionality, with no requirement for overhead mounting, making sure faces are seen and footage is always useful for identifying persons of interest or delivering business intelligence. Digital auto-tracking provides a second video stream, which features close-up detail on objects being tracked. AI-based Preferred Shutter technology Wisenet AI cameras can significantly reduce the false alarms generated from irrelevant movement Wisenet AI cameras can significantly reduce the false alarms generated from irrelevant movement, such as moving trees, shadows and animals. Additionally, new enhancements to the line include WiseNR II noise reduction, which utilises AI (Artificial Intelligence) to identify object movement and reduce blur in noisy and low light or dark environments. AI-based Preferred Shutter technology automatically adjusts the shutter speed, based on classified objects in motion and the lighting condition in a scene, in order to reduce motion blur and deliver the clearest images. AI-based bandwidth reduction with WiseStream III As the size of video data continues to increase, it’s important to develop technologies to minimise network bandwidth. By utilising the results of AI-based object detection, WiseStream III technology adjusts the video encoder to focus maximum video quality on the detected objects in a scene, while at the same time, scaling back encoding on the rest of the scene. Adjustable by the end user, this technology can provide data reduction of up to 80% depending on the environment. Further data reduction is achieved with the BestShot feature, which ensures that only the most suitable image of a detected object is sent back to the server. VMS Metadata Compatibility AI object and attribute metadata (color, type, age, gender) is stored alongside the video image data for use during forensic search. VMS systems from Genetec and Milestone, as well as Wisenet WAVE and Wisenet X NVRs enable users to filter and search using this enhanced metadata.

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.

At GSX 2019, in booth 251, Hanwha Techwin America, a supplier of IP and analogue video surveillance solutions, will announce its new 32 megapixel 8K network camera. The TNB-9000 utilises a full size 35mm CMOS sensor to deliver true 8K performance at up to 12fps. The TNB-9000 covers large areas with sufficient pixel density to allow operators to zoom in digitally and investigate image details in real time or forensically and still retain a clear image. Operators can even adjust the field of view. Highest resolution camera The TNB-9000 represents our highest performing, highest resolution camera to date" The camera is ideally suited for stadiums, airports and similar large spaces where installing multiple cameras may be impractical or cost prohibitive. Support for EF (Electro Focus) mount lenses, with remote focus, gives customers exceptional flexibility in lens options and low light performance. “The TNB-9000 represents our highest performing, highest resolution camera to date,” says Ray Cooke, Vice President - Products, Solutions, and Integration at Hanwha Techwin America. “The ability to digitally zoom in to any area of an image without losing detail provides a powerful alternative to traditional multi-camera installations.” Focal length and aperture The TNB-9000 EF lens mount accommodates any Canon EF mount lenses, allowing for a wide variety of options for focal length and aperture. The TNB-9000 camera view angle can be remotely adjusted, both vertically and horizontally, without reducing pixel density.

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+

If a queue gets backed up, an event can be triggered to alert the end-user to assess and take action. Shock Detection – Introduced in the Wisenet X series PLUS line of cameras, gyro sensors can detect when a camera is shaking or enduring physical shock. This can trigger an alarm or custom event in WAVE 4.0. Temperature change detection from thermal cameras – When working with the recently released Wisenet thermal cameras, change in temperature above or below a threshold can trigger an alarm in WAVE. Remote access For remote access, a new WAVE mobile app version 19.3 features smart motion search from within the mobile client For remote access, a new WAVE mobile app version 19.3 features smart motion search from within the mobile client. Users simply press and drag on a region from within the camera’s field of view and motion slices pop up in the timeline showing any motion that occurred within that region within any time period. In WAVE 4.0, the system architecture has been revamped to ensure every moment is captured and recorded with minimum downtime while providing increased scalability. The previous 50 server limit has been doubled to support up to 100 servers in a unified site (each server can support 128 camera streams). Multi-server failover is built into the software and ready to be activated with only a few clicks, and without requiring any extra failover licenses. Additional highlighted features in WAVE 4.0: Improved support for Wisenet Q series NVRs with integrated PoE Improved PTZ support and functionality on NVRs and SPE encoders Encrypted video and HTTPS communications provide the ability to force the system to use HTTPS and to encrypt video traffic When using WAVE Sync, users can easily merge systems over the internet that are registered to the same user account Metadata SDK A metadata SDK allows for the integration of object metadata (coordinates, tags) Additionally, a metadata SDK allows for the integration of object metadata (coordinates, tags) generated by third party computer vision applications. This allows for the integration of several functions including the ability to overlay bounding boxes and object paths within video tiles, as well as integrate custom actions and events. Wisenet WAVE supports all major operating systems including Microsoft Windows and Linux Ubuntu for server application; Microsoft Windows, Linux Ubuntu and Apple MacOS for the client application; and Apple iOS and Google Android for the mobile application and web clients. Hanwha also includes an API package accessible by developers directly within the server application enabling easy third party integration with Wisenet WAVE. Software integration “Small and medium businesses range from one or more large sites, to several campuses or a small chain of sites. These organisations, and their public sector counterparts, demand end-to-end simplicity that is friendly to their budget upfront, and for the long term,” said Cooke. “Wave 4.0 provides just that, with features and solutions for these environments as their needs expand.”
