What WizMind panoramic surveillance offers

Issue 5 2022 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Designing an effective monitoring solution for a large-scale scenario is never an easy task, and often faces many challenges. Ordinary cameras are not enough to accommodate the needs of large scenarios, resulting in extensive camera coverage that increases installation, wiring and maintenance costs.

It is impossible for traditional cameras with subpar zoom capabilities to be able to accurately detect human and vehicle targets on the scene, or filter out false alarms caused by irrelevant objects. Decentralised management and lack of substantial statistical data for business analysis have also been one of the downsides of traditional monitoring systems.

The Dahua WizMind Panoramic Surveillance solution is designed for applications that require a 360°, 270° or 180° panoramic view for situational awareness, such as crowd maps and vehicle density. Its high-speed PTZ camera and EPTZ technology can quickly and automatically track moving targets without missing target behaviour details. It can replace multiple conventional cameras, reduce monitoring complexity and save costs.

Wide coverage and cost-effective implementation

WizMind Panoramic Surveillance provides an all-in-one design consisting of one device, one cable and one power supply. With a PTZ camera, users can easily zoom in for close-up details. One panoramic camera can efficiently replace multiple conventional cameras, greatly reducing installation wiring and maintenance costs.

Smart Tracking is basically the linkage between the panoramic camera and a PTZ camera; only panoramic cameras with PTZ support this feature. It can track one target at a time, supports up to 45x optical zoom, and can quickly auto-track a moving target from a distance without missing any details.

On the other hand, an electric PTZ, or simply EPTZ, is only available in panoramic cameras that don’t have PTZ cameras. When the alarm is triggered, an EPTZ camera can simultaneously zoom in and track multiple human and vehicle targets. It can focus on up to five important areas when there is no alarm. With high-speed positioning, this intelligent camera can quickly track the moving target that triggered the alarm until it disappears from the scene.

AR Panorama

The Dahua AR Panorama adopts augmented reality technology, and combines enhanced real-time sensing data and information data. It allows a single system to achieve a visual, controllable and dispatchable new command mode, which makes surveillance more visual, convenient and efficient, and offers a better user experience.

Crowd density and vehicle density

Equipped with a deep learning algorithm, the Crowd Density function of Dahua’s WizMind Panoramic Surveillance provides early warning when the real-time crowd density exceeds the pre-set threshold to protect public security. It can detect up to 1024 human targets with an accuracy rate of over 92%, and cover up to eight areas with a radius of 30 m. What’s more, it can also generate crowd reports for BI analysis.

Moreover, the Vehicle Density function of this solution analyses the real-time vehicle situation in the monitored scene, such as the number of vehicles in an area (maximum 8 areas) and vehicle congestion in selected lanes. It offers a detection radius of up to 125 m and detection accuracy rate of over 95%. When the number of vehicles exceeds the pre-set threshold, the system will promptly raise an alarm and generate vehicle reports for BI analysis.

Scenario applications

WizMind Panoramic Surveillance is a comprehensive solution suitable for various large scenario applications. Here are a some of examples:

Squares: These are often places with heavy foot traffic and large numbers of people. With restrictions still in place due to the pandemic, a lot of squares are still implementing strict measures to avoid people gathering. Using a Dahua panoramic camera like the IPC-PFW8 series, operators can easily monitor the number of people in the scene, allowing them to respond in time when the number of people has reached the prescribed limit.

City roads: Public roads like urban roads, viaducts and toll gates are prone to traffic jams. The Hubble series can be deployed in such scenarios to efficiently monitor the number of vehicles in the scene, providing timely alarms and statistical data to aid traffic management departments in their decision-making.

Overall, the Dahua WizMind Panoramic Surveillance solution ticks all the boxes of an effective and efficient monitoring solution for large scenarios. It meets the fundamental requirements for large scene monitoring, smart tracking, resource integration and cost saving. It also provides intelligent analysis of targets in large application scenarios such as public squares, urban roads, entrance and exit areas, enterprise campuses and parking lots.
