Security distributor Norbain is to offer the Wisenet X-series of affordable artificial intelligence (AI) cameras for Hanwha Techwin Europe.
Hanwha Techwin Europe launched a new NDAA compliant range of cameras with built-in AI in April.
Surveillance product provider Hanwha feels its price point will add value to businesses.
The 28 camera range can enhance video surveillance with deep learning, helping firms reduce false alarms and to work more efficiently.
Norbain said AI embedded in the X-series range makes video more manageable, notifying operators about events when needed and enabling them to find relevant incidents and objects quickly through forensic search.
Irrelevant motions such as waving trees, moving shadows and animals are ignored, reducing false alarms.
AI-based analytics also bring a wealth of actionable data to operations, marketing and sales departments providing highly accurate people counts, queue management data and heat maps showing detailed patterns of behaviour.
WiseNRII allows for noise reduction, Extreme WDR provides clear images while WiseStreamIII minimises bandwidth and storage, compressing all video except objects and areas of interest.
The new AI enhanced X-series range offers dome, vandal dome, bullet, and box camera options with each device featuring metal outers and, in the case of dome cameras, highly resistant dome bubbles.
It is divided into X-core and X-plus cameras with the X-plus range offering a modular magnetic design to simplify installation.
The X-plus also comes with tele focal length to zoom into a scene with a 29mm angle of view.
Hanwha Techwin Europe’s Head of Product and Marketing Uri Guterman said: “We’ve witnessed deep learning AI becoming increasingly vital to security as the amount of video they’ve had to manage has grown.
“I’m delighted that Hanwha Techwin Europe is bringing false alarm reduction, edge-based business intelligence, and AI-enhanced image quality to a broader range of cameras.
“These improve operator efficiency for both real-time event notification and post-event search.
“It also makes AI more affordable and accessible to organisations who might previously have been under the impression that the technology is too expensive to be deployed for anything other than high-end applications.
“This move heralds the future of video in security.”
