The security and surveillance industries cannot start looking to 2022 without acknowledging the importance of 2021: a year that has changed every aspect of our daily lives, including the way we act. behave, work, communicate, and collaborate. As the world emerges from an unprecedented global pandemic, companies in every industry must re-evaluate all aspects of their business, from how they interact with customers to how they manage their workforce. labor or market access.
This new business landscape has also created a new set of challenges for the security surveillance industry. Employees, customers, and partners must work remotely, share and collaborate across different online networks, and leave data vulnerable.
And Hanwha Techwin’s answer to these challenges is a range of products and solutions that integrate the latest technologies, from cloud computing, automation, to Artificial Intelligence/deep learning, all closely connected in a comprehensive range of services and solutions. Here are the top 5 Hanwha Techwin trends that will take place in 2022:
1. AI computing/analysis at the edge – Increasing data analytics efficiency
Security monitoring solutions increasingly integrate analytics to help protect and intelligently manage data. The use of edge AI, especially analytics based on deep learning algorithms, could become a key player in smart surveillance applications. This includes subject detection and classification, and the collection of attributes in metadata format, while reducing latency and bandwidth for the entire system and enabling real-time monitoring. and all the benefits from edge computing will now be possible only when there is a competitive advantage from the SoC.
Wisenet AI cameras P and X series using AI technology and deep learning technology will only focus on detecting data by filter to find accurate events and improve operational efficiency. AI and deep learning algorithms help to ignore the movement of unwanted objects such as shadows, animals, or the movement of trees, greatly reducing false alarms. Hanwha Techwin continuously invests in the development of AI SoC to enhance the AI computing capabilities of its products.
2. Subject tracking monitoring system integrated with AI technology
From simple monitoring devices, today’s security monitoring systems are becoming comprehensive solutions that can be applied in all industries, and the driving factor in this process is AI technology, a trend. is expected to continue to grow indefinitely.
The data obtained through AI monitoring and monitoring solutions helps businesses gain a deeper understanding of their customers and operational efficiency. Body temperature cameras in the lobby or entrance area with AI applications use AI algorithms at the edge to ignore non-human objects and reduce false alarms. Cloud application solutions use people counting algorithms to help store owners measure sales performance, come up with smart stall layouts, or use results from heat maps to measure customer volume. , avoid long waiting time at the checkout counter. And there are many other applications that help businesses improve the efficiency of security monitoring as well as make timely and accurate decisions to improve business results.
Powered by powerful AI video analytics, Hanwha Techwin’s newly developed AI solutions are solving challenges in multiple verticals. Solutions like the COVID-19 solution, the smart traffic management solution, and the retail solution all use edge-based AI video analytics for greater accuracy.
Hanwha Techwin will continue to strive to meet customer needs in many verticals by expanding projects that provide customized AI solutions according to customers’ needs.
3. Business model “As a Service” (providing service)
Surveillance services, cloud computing services, access control services are terms that are increasingly mentioned in the security surveillance industry. But what are the real meanings and benefits of providing a service instead of a mere sale?
With advancements in cloud-based services, video surveillance manufacturers can now transform into solution service providers by delivering solutions to customers. across cloud platforms, and then extend the model to every other area of security surveillance.
As the global market size of public cloud services is estimated to reach many billions of dollars by 2022, companies can easily realize the benefits of “bundling” all applications, infrastructure, business processes in a service package (aaS – “as a service”) for customers. They can thus react faster and more efficiently to changes in the market, launch new products and services more quickly, and optimize operational efficiency with intelligent analytics and insights. profound – all of which combine to create a unique competitive advantage.
Using the “aaS” model brings more accurate and tailored solutions to organizations’ practical needs, creating economies of scale, cost effectiveness, and improving operational efficiency. The application of “aaS” in security monitoring (to become “VSaaS”) will allow recording via cloud computing, thereby eliminating the need to use the server and helping organizations to use the system quickly. without complicated network configuration operations. All cameras and equipment will be centrally controlled and monitored, and many processes will be automated.
Hanwha Techwin is strengthening its “As a Service” model by investing in cloud-based platforms and services. Offers cloud-based storage, VMS analytics, device management, design/installation tools, and more. Hanwha Techwin is planning to release Wisenet Toolbox Cloud that will allow customers, and especially system integrators/designers/installers, to design video surveillance systems with the Wisenet Portal to manage devices on a single platform. And Hanwha Techwin will once again become the leading company in the application of the “As a Service” model.
4. Use surveillance technology responsibly and ethically.
The development of technology goes hand in hand with the increase in cybercrime. Concerns about information safety and security grow as organizations adopt more cloud computing models, while still having to ensure the trust of employees and customers.
The use of technologies such as AI-powered video surveillance to enhance the effectiveness of security surveillance offers a multitude of great benefits, but also raises concerns about invasion of privacy or network attack. Therefore, international organizations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and many others have very specific and strict standards and regulations on data protection and privacy; and manufacturers involved in international, government-related transactions or projects will need to comply with these regulations thoroughly across their products and processes.
Hanwha Techwin is developing technology that creates a security mask when using AI-based object detection technology. It will allow subjects’ faces and license plates to be covered in live view, eliminating privacy concerns.
Hanwha Techwin’s cybersecurity policies are applied not only from the very beginning in product design, but also in every step of the development and production process. Hanwha Techwin is doing its best to take full responsibility for the use of its technology by complying with the standards of world-renowned organizations.
5. Technology integration
Despite its widespread adoption, the use of networks and the Internet of Things (IoT) will continue to bring breakthroughs to the security surveillance industry, enabling developments in standard video transmission. standard HD even on mobile devices. These technologies will create more potential applications for audio & video analytics, as well as artificial intelligence. At a higher level, we are seeing a massive digital transformation, in which core technologies such as IoT, cloud computing, intelligent data, or artificial intelligence will play a key role. religion.
Hanwha Techwin has developed its own open platform that allows users to safely and simply add AI applications, increasing camera performance. This opens up the potential in using surveillance cameras to track subjects in AI application solutions incorporating AIoT technology. To further strengthen its global presence as a leading AIoT solution provider, Hanwha Techwin plans to introduce an AI box to provide customers with more hardware options. With the AI box, customers will be able to turn any Network Camera into an AI camera, allowing users to run applications that meet their specialized needs. The company also plans to strengthen relationships with various VMS partners through exchange programs and product introductions with a wider selection of integrated solutions.
