The Wisenet XNF-9010RV and XNF-9010RVM 12 megapixel fisheye cameras are the latest additions to the range of Wisenet X cameras equipped with Hanwha Techwin’s proprietary Wisenet7 chipset.

The ground-breaking Wisenet7 chipset, which boasts an impressive list of technologies that significantly improve the cyber security credentials of Wisenet cameras, is UL Cybersecurity Assurance Program (UL CAP) certificated. It therefore enables Hanwha Techwin to provide users with peace of mind in knowing their confidential data will be kept safe from hackers.

Video surveillance solutions

In addition to setting a new standard for IP network video surveillance solutions in respect of cyber security, the feature-rich Wisenet7 also ensures the two new fisheye cameras, which have built in IR illumination, are able to capture superb quality images, regardless of the lighting conditions. A new ‘extreme’ Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) feature, for example, utilizes new Local Contrast Enhancement and Scene Analysis technologies to capture ultra-clear images from scenes containing a challenging mix of bright and dark areas.

The two cameras share a long list of other real-life practical features, with the mobile XNF-9010RVM having the addition of an M12 connector. Built to withstand vibrations, the EN50155 certificated XNF-9010RVM is designed to offer a robust solution for monitoring activity on buses, trains, trucks and other forms of transport.

Potential video evidence

A digital PTZ allows users to electronically pan, tilt and zoom in on specific areas for a more detailed view

Both cameras have on-board dewarping and offer a variety of alternative viewing modes, including single panorama, double panorama and quad views. A digital PTZ allows users to electronically pan, tilt and zoom in on specific areas for a more detailed view, whilst at the same time, continuing to monitor the whole 360⁰ view. It also offers privacy masking, a 12VDC and PoE capability.

In the event of network disruption, video is automatically recorded to on-board SDXC storage to ensure that potential video evidence is not lost. In addition to providing a powerful tool to deter and detect criminal activity, the two cameras are equipped with specialist business intelligence applications which enable users to achieve so much more from their video surveillance systems.

Improving customer experience

Collectively, the heatmap, people counting and queue management video analytics are able to assist businesses, and the retail sector in particular, with identifying opportunities to improve productivity, gain a greater understanding of customer behavior and improve the customer experience.

The two new cameras support H.265, H.264 and MJPEG compression formats, as well as WiseStream II, a complementary compression technology which dynamically controls encoding, balancing quality and compression, according to movement in the image. Bandwidth efficiency is improved by up to 75% compared to current H.264 technology when WiseStream, which is unique to Wisenet cameras, is combined with H.265 compression.

Intelligent video analytics

Other key features include the following:

  • 1.08mm fixed lens.
  • Stereo graphic type lens enhances resolution within the peripheral regions of an image.
  • Simple Focus: A single push of a button located at the back of the camera is all that is needed to automatically focus the camera via the Simple Focus feature, which can also be remotely accessed via the network.
  • A suite of Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA), which includes defocus detection, directional detection, motion detection, appear/disappear, enter/exit, loitering, tampering, virtual line, audio detection.
  • Sound classification: An audio analytics feature which recognizes critical sounds such as raised voices, screams, broken glass, gunshots and explosions, and generates an alert to enable security personnel to quickly react to any incidents.
  • Vandal resistant hard coated dome cover.

Cyber security credentials

A single fish-eye camera will quite often offer the most efficient and cost-effective way of monitoring a large area, and particularly so when a number of standard cameras might normally be required to avoid any blind spots.”

They also offer a compact option for environments where aesthetics or space limitations might be an issue,” said Uri Guterman, Head of Product & Marketing for Hanwha Techwin Europe. “Whilst there is no shortage of fish-eye cameras on the market, the cyber security credentials and image enhancing features of the XNF-9010RV and XNF-9010RVM, ensures they stand out from the crowd.”

Visual AI Company AnyVision Changes its Name to Oosto
Visual AI Company AnyVision Changes its Name to Oosto

AnyVision announced today that the company will change its name to Oosto. The new name reflects the company’s evolution and vision for the future which is shaped, in part, by a new collaboration with Carnegie Mellon University’s (CMU) CyLab Biometric Research Center. The CMU partnership will focus on early-stage research in object, body, and behavior recognition. Vision AI Oosto CEO, Avi Golan remarks, "Historically, the company has focused on security-related use cases for our watchlist alerting and touchless access control solutions. With the launch of Oosto, we’re looking beyond the lens of security to include ways our solutions can positively impact an organization’s safety, productivity and customer experience.” AnyVision pioneered Vision AI to automate watchlist alerting, identifying security risks as well as valuable customers in real-time to personalize customer experiences and enhance physical security. The rebranded Oosto will leverage the power of Vision AI to enhance the safety of customers, guests, and employees. Solutions include touchless access control, video analytics, and new flavors of video-based recognition (object, body, and behavioral recognition), which deliver the insights and alerts to protect pivotal stakeholders from bad actors and security threats. Partnership with CyLab Biometric Research Center The company’s research partnership with Carnegie Mellon University’s (CMU) CyLab Biometric Research Center will focus on advanced object classification and behavior recognition algorithms for commercial use cases. This collaboration will help Oosto address a broad range of safety-related use cases, including object detection (e.g., weapons on school grounds) and behavioral analysis (e.g., when someone falls down). As part of the partnership, Marios Savvides, a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and founder and director of the Biometrics Center at CMU, will join Oosto as the Chief AI Scientist to expand Oosto’s AI team led by CTO, Dieter Joecker. “We were impressed by Oosto's commitment to the fair and ethical use of the technology, preserving user privacy, and creating safer spaces for everyone,” said Professor Marios Savvides. “These shared values make Oosto an ideal research partner for CMU to advance object, body, and behavioral recognition and to positively impact our collective safety.” Long histoy in artificial intelligence Over the past 10 years, more than 400 startups linked to CMU have raised more than $7 billion in funding. CMU has a long history in artificial intelligence including the creation of the first AI computer program in 1956 and pioneering work in self-driving cars, facial recognition, and natural language processing. ECE Professor Marios Savvides was named one of the “2020 Outstanding Contributors to AI” awards from the former U.S. Secretary of the Army. His research has been focused on developing core AI and machine-learning algorithms that were successfully applied for robust face detection, face recognition, iris biometrics, and most recently, general object detection and scene understanding. Savvides has generated over 35 patents and patent publications, and over 50 unpublished patent applications to date. "Under the leadership of Prof. Savvides, CMU’s CyLab Biometric Research Center has an impressive track record of successfully transferring AI research out of a lab environment and into reliable and scalable solutions," added Golan. "Visual intelligence is in its infancy and there is so much more work yet to be done. With this partnership, we now have an elite U.S.-based AI research center that will work in concert with our existing AI teams to accelerate the development of advanced deep learning algorithms and exploration of new safety-related use cases, markets, and industries, including medical, payments, and smart cities.” As part of these corporate rebranding efforts, the company is also renaming its products to OnWatch (formerly A Better Tomorrow), OnAccess (formerly Abraxas), and OnPatrol.
