New Dahua AI Camera Can Identify Faces by Facial Expressions, Age
Dahua Technology says its new facial recognition technology is designed for places with high throughput traffic and risk of theft.
Dahua Technology USA, a provider of video surveillance products and services, unveiled new AI-based solutions at ISC West earlier this month.
The IPC-HF8242F-FR AI network 2MP box camera is a standalone front-end intelligent solution that performs complex facial recognition without additional licenses or servers, according to the company.
The AI camera features backwards compatible H.265 / H.264 smart codecs, Starlight technology for low-light applications and true wide dynamic range (120dB) for high contrast scenes.
Dahua says by interpreting video data at the source, the camera dissects and learns data for easier processing and higher efficiency. Analytics are done on-board.
The camera includes human facial feature extraction, real-time facial snapshots and a comparison database of up to 10,000 face images and five libraries that are stored on-board, according to the company.
Dahua says this feature creates a proactive way to identify persons of interest before an incident occurs, due to the possibility of adding profiles of known criminals, prior offenders, suspended students, sexual predators or disgruntled persons to the database. When a suspect is detected on the camera, an alert will be sent to the end user.
The IPC-HF8242F-FR is also said to offer accurate, real-time facial analysis that includes six types of facial features: age, gender, expression, glasses, mouth mask and mustache, as well as five types of expressions including jolly, normal, surprised, sad and rage.
Dahua AI 4K NVR
The IVSS7016 all-in-one 16-channel AI NVR supports 4K ultra HD resolution for recording, live viewing and playback, and combines video management functions with traditional video storage, video decoding and deep learning in one device.
With its integrated, high performing GPU module and Dahua’s advanced deep learning algorithms, the device can perform a powerful video structure analysis using metadata and achieve high precision facial analysis, according to the company.
The IVSS7016 features an Intel Dual-core processor and the AI NVR can store up to 100,000 faces in the image database and a maximum of 10 million face metadata or face images. The device offers RAID 0/1/5/10, redundant power and backwards compatible H.265 / H.264 smart codecs. It is said to be compatible with any ONVIF camera.
Dahua says its new facial recognition technology is designed for places with high throughput traffic and risk of theft, such as casinos, and works equally well in preventing the admittance of known offenders into other venues such as education facilities, restaurants and sports arenas.
