A ‘step-change’ in tracking and monitoring

Issue 8 2020 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Products

A camera solution that can view an overall scene while monitoring a specific person or vehicle, and a second one that also provides a panoramic view while being able to zoom in and track particular scenes or targets, have been launched by Dahua Technology.

Next Generation PTZ is all about combining dual PTZ and multiple panoramic and PTZ cameras into two distinct solutions, all integrated into the same easily installed and calibrated units. By needing fewer units to cover a site, this range of Next Generation PTZs can also save on having to install additional cameras and the associated cabling costs.

First is the Hunter series – which incorporates a dual PTZ system – which enables the user to monitor a typical PTZ camera scene, while at the same time closely tracking a person or vehicle of interest. The unit features smart tracking with simultaneous overview and detailed monitoring, deep-learning based AI delivering a false alarm rate of less than 2%, a capture rate of 98% and more than 27 supported attributes.

The Hunter is also quick and easy to install by one person and has one-click auto calibration. Once the target triggers in the overview camera, the detail camera will track it automatically. The deep-learning based algorithm produces metadata which captures and extracts the attributes of a face, body or vehicle, so that a user can quickly and accurately locate a target in a mass of recorded footage.

Dahua’s Hubble series, the second of the two new solutions, uses a series of integrated fixed cameras to deliver a panoramic 270o or 360o view, while its integrated dome camera can zoom into specific parts of the overview scene. With Ultra HD resolution of up to 24 megapixels, Hubble also features crowd number and density detection, as well as vehicle counting and density monitoring, plus augmented reality mapping. Typical applications are for major road junctions, large urban areas, airports or other vantage points.

“With Dahua’s Next Generation PTZ cameras, you can literally be in – or at least see – two places at once,” says Thomas Tian, Dahua’s UK and Ireland product director. “Dual or multi-camera technology enables you to closely track a target while simultaneously monitoring an overview of the bigger picture. This delivers the ultimate in situational awareness. Together with the powerful features offered by deep-learning based AI and other smart features, the cameras represent a step-change in wide-area automated monitoring and tracking.”
