The past couple of years has been undoubtedly challenging for everyone. With the pandemic still looming everywhere, people have somewhat learned to adjust to the new normal. And with it, a wave of new technologies have emerged. According to an IEEE study, Artificial Intelligence (AI), machine learning, cloud computing and 5G are just some of the technologies set to take centre stage in 2022.
As a video-centric smart IoT solution and service provider, Dahua is constantly innovating and developing its product and service offerings, paying close attention to the latest and emerging technologies in the industry. With the new year just around the corner, let’s check out some technology trends that are expecting to lead the year of the tiger:
- Accelerated adoption of AI-powered video analytics and entry-level products
By embedding AI into end, edge and cloud scenarios, more and more AI-based devices will be widely applied in various fields and industries. It’s likely that technologies related to AI analytics – such as AI-based forensic search, business intelligence, object detection and bandwidth – will drive a large part of video surveillance innovation in 2022 and beyond.
Next year, Dahua’s WizSense, a wide-ranging series of AI products and solutions that recognise human and vehicle with high accuracy, is set to release upgrades in its AI Scene Self-adaptation(AI SSA) , AI Coding, and QuickPick functionalities. Additionally, WizMind – a collection of Dahua’s high-end AI solutions that offer early warning and real-time alerts, advanced analytics, and data statistics – is also on track to update its portfolio that includes wide-angle cameras, parking lot management, thermal imaging cameras, and more.
According to the 2021 Video Surveillance & Analytics Database Report from Omdia, demand for recording devices – especially entry-level equipment – with embedded deep learning analytics is expected to increase. The Dahua Cooper-I series XVR, for example, is the first entry-level intelligent analog recorder and storage device that offers AI features such as SMD (smart motion detection) Plus and AI coding. Likewise, the Dahua Eureka series is also composed of entry-level thermal cameras powered by AI. Designed for end-users, it’s an ideal choice for small- and medium-sized perimeter intrusion detection and early fire detection in various scenarios (e.g. waste recycling sites).
- Cloud-based video surveillance continues to grow and evolve
The demand for cloud computing among organisations is expected to continue in 2022 as a result of remote working and growing trend in digital transformation due to COVID-19. The adoption of cloud-based video surveillance solutions like VSaaS (Video Surveillance as a Service) is also set to accelerate in 2022.
Due to its numerous advantages such as cost-effectiveness, remote data access, secure data storage, high reliability, etc, it sees increasing popularity in the SMB sector that cannot independently build and maintain video surveillance systems.
