With technical improvements heading to a new level, the application scenarios of security and monitoring cameras are expanding. In Schwarze Berge Wildlife Park located in Rosengarten, Germany, the local wildlife population is protected by camera systems from Dahua Technology.
The park covers an area of about 50 hectares. Nearly a thousand animals are housed on these grounds covering over 100 kinds of native species that live in Europe. “A camera system performs many different tasks and we thought we would like to have a complete system.” Arne Vaubel, managing director of the Schwarze Berge Wildlife Park said. “We chose Dahua because it customised a complete solution to meet all our needs.”
“In this project, a series of cameras equipped with key technologies such as full-colour and thermal imaging were adopted. The park is able to monitor the living environment and health status of animals at any moment without disturbing them, which also helps the park realise efficient operation and management,” Kai Wockenfuß, pre-sales support technical engineer of Dahua Technology in Germany says.
For low-light environment, 8 MP full-colour fixed-focal warm LED bullet WizMind network cameras were installed to guarantee high image definition. With high-performance sensor and large aperture lens, the technology can display clear colour images in ultra-low illumination.
The Dahua PTZ WizMind network camera adopts advanced CNN deep learning algorithms to achieve high accuracy. This camera possesses wide monitoring range and PFA algorithms that can always present a clear and focused image while zooming. The model used in this project, the 8 MP 40x Starlight IR PTZ AI network camera, has a powerful 40x optical zoom capability and Dahua's Starlight ultra-low light technology, which contribute to clear images in dark environments. The advanced zoom lenses make it possible for audience to have a close-up view of the animals.
Adapting to the pandemic situation, zoos and theme parks are adopting Dahua’s surveillance solutions for crowd control as well. While the cameras are monitoring the number of guests and visitors, the Dahua Privacy Protection technology in its 4 MP IR bullet WizMind network camera can automatically make faces of the visitors unrecognisable in the surveillance image by pixelating them.
Thermal imaging cameras are used not only to observe animals, but also to protect them from danger. Thermal imaging cameras can measure environment temperature over a long range and warn of fires. The WizSense Thermal network bullet camera uses uncooled VOx sensor technology. Because of small size and better performance, it is a cost-effective solution for thermal security. They also can capture more image details and temperature difference information due to high thermal sensitivity (< 50 mK).
For protecting both wild animals and visitors in the park and speeding the entrance process of vehicles, access ANPR cameras were applied for accurate vehicle monitoring and number plate recognition in the campsite. The camera adopts high-performance CMOS image sensor and processor for in-depth extraction and analysis of vehicle information 24/7. Its AI-based algorithm ensures accurate recognition of vehicles.
