The company's predictions suggest that artificial intelligence, open platform and cloud solutions, cybersecurity, data protection and privacy, will be the main technological trends 2021; regardless of whether these are complex projects or applications in small offices, factories or retailers.
As is already a traditional practice at this time of year, Hanwha Techwin announced what it believes will be the five key trends in the video surveillance industry during 2021. These encompass AI solutions based on the camera itself, open platform, the cloud, Cybersecurity, data protection and privacy issues.
Growing solutions with artificial intelligence and unlimited application potential.A key advantage of peripheral devices is that they have the ability to integrate and run specialized software applications. This improves resource efficiency, saves processing time and minimizes network bandwidth requirements.
With greater functionality, which is now included in deep learning artificial intelligence solutions integrated into the cameras, increase the number of installed devices that can process data internally.
In response to a trend in which field devices include, Increasingly, open platform solutions, Hanwha Techwin will strengthen its open platform based on artificial intelligence and work closely with technology partners to create ecosystems that are intuitive, easy to use, scalable and able to meet the ever-evolving demands of customers.
The extended open platform will facilitate the development of a wider range of custom end-user-specific solutions and vertical markets. Since end users want to make the most of their video solutions, software development cannot continue as an isolated process led by the internal software engineering team of a single company.
Hanwha Techwin is a founding member of Open Security & Safety Alliance (Ossa), an initiative that has brought together like-minded organizations with the aim of defining specifications for a common platform for security and protection solutions. During 2021, will work with other OSSA members to build a standardized and accessible framework, that will provide the flexibility to develop integrated solutions that address regional or user-specific requirements.
While collaborating with other OSSA members, Hanwha Techwin intends to improve the compatibility and interoperability of its open platform products within the video surveillance ecosystem. This will be achieved by encompassing specialized field applications, video management systems and cloud solutions developed by third-party technology partners, that will allow them to offer a wide range of optimized solutions that will deliver practical benefits in real life and add value to video surveillance systems.
The cloud will become an enterprise information tool. Currently, used as a system for updating product characteristics, as well as to install security patches. However, the increase in the number of peripheral devices being installed means that the cloud also has an important role to play as a means to securely manage devices and handle large amounts of data to provide business intelligence.
Hanwha Techwin plans to introduce a cloud solution that will allow users to easily manage Wisenet IP network products and monitor their status in real time. Equally important, the solution will generate reports that will allow for greater situational awareness and business intelligence, based on the results of the analyzed data that has been captured in each field facility.
Cybersecurity will become even more important with increased use of peripheral devices.With increased data capture, stored and secured more and more on the device itself as part of a smart factory, a smart office, a smart retail store or, on a larger scale, a smart city solution, the need for protection against cyberattacks has become an even more essential need.
However, cybersecurity is and will remain a major problem for an application, regardless of size or complexity.
In 2020, Hanwha Techwin included cybersecurity functionality within Wisenet7, your most powerful chipset to date. To give users peace of mind knowing that their sensitive data will be kept safe from hackers. Also, they also obtained certification from UL's Cybersecurity Guarantee Program (UL CAP) wisenet7 chipset.
Respect for data protection and privacy. GDPR in Europe and CCPA in the US have draw attention to the need for companies that capture personal data to have adequate privacy procedures.
In the video surveillance industry, the protection of personal identification contained in video data is an important issue. A balanced approach is needed to ensure compliance with privacy standards, while making the most of the latest advances in technology and data that helps capture.
Hanwha Techwin is aware of its corporate responsibility to help users comply with privacy regulations. Your SSM and WAVE video management software, smart Cover of Privacy video editing and masking (S-COP), and the video privacy management solution (Vpm), are designed to help comply with regulations, while getting the most out of Wisenet cameras and recording solutions.
"Market research reports, independently drafted, and customer feedback supports these predictions", Jeff says (Chae Won) Read, CEO of Hanwha Techwin Europe. "In this sense, our product roadmap and sales strategy take into account that, regardless of whether system integrators are involved in complex video surveillance projects, mission-critical or high-security, or include security in small office applications, factories or retailers, these trends will have a big impact over the next few 12 months and the near future".
