Enhanced image clarity and enriched AI functions

Issue 1 2023 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Products

To kickstart the new year, Dahua is launching the latest IPC WizMind S series that offers stronger computing power. The IPC WizMind S series takes user experience to a new level in terms of image effect that meet the requirements of various application scenarios. It is equipped with multiple intelligent functions, offers adaptability, and comes in plastic-free packaging, enabling better image performance, promoting environmental sustainability, and providing global clients with smarter vision with a stronger surveillance shield.

The IPC WizMind Series realises optimum image quality through an array of image-enhancing technologies that meet the complex challenges of security scenarios.

AI-Powered Image, as its name suggests, is created through AI and provides full-image clarity in various environments. The overall brightness of the footages under low-light conditions is more balanced, and key targets can be focused intelligently through deep-learning algorithms to remove noise and restore details. In addition, this series is equipped with WDR technology that automatically adjust overexposure or underexposure and even make moving objects in the image clear and recognisable. It also has time-division exposure technology for clearer snapshots when intelligent functions are being used (e.g. video metadata).

Deeplight, which is an upgraded low-illumination image effect from Starlight and Starlight+, uses deep-learning algorithms to process images, thus reducing image noise and achieving optimal images with higher clarity and better colour details at night.

Another unique feature of the IPC WizMind S series is Image Distortion Correction that adopts distortion correction algorithms to capture more natural and more realistic video footage. Compared with previous products, activating this feature significantly reduces loss in the field of view of the scene.

Multiple intelligent functions

The new IPC WizMind S series offers various intelligent functions such as video metadata, which detects human, vehicle and non-motor vehicle targets, takes snapshots, and performs accurate attribute analysis. It is also equipped with smart sound detection, which distinguishes between different sounds, such as screams and glass breaking. An upgraded Heat Map is also available and can be used in conjunction with people counting. Other intelligent functions include face detection, smart object detection of abandoned or missing objects; enhanced perimeter protection to better recognise specific activities of human and vehicle targets, such as intrusion, tripwire, fast-moving targets, parking, loitering and gathering; and more functionalities for different applications.

In situations where continuous 24/7 monitoring is essential, or where there is an unreliable power supply, the IPC WizMind S series provides operational flexibility in the field with dual power backup. This allows automatic switching to another power source (without restarting the IPC device) if one of the power supplies fails, ensuring continuous operation of the camera.

The H models of this series are also equipped with: P-iris precise lens aperture control, providing more accurate light input control; dual mics for longer sound pickup distance; anti-corrosion coating for use even in harsh coastal areas; and a heater that enables operation in temperature environments as low as -40°C.

The WizMind S series is suitable for application scenarios such as sports stadia, transport hubs, busy urban settings and retail premises, as well as large remote sites that need continuous surveillance.
