Huawei’s Software-Defined Cameras Enable Intelligent Surveillance

See More. Think More. Care More

What Is a Software-Defined Camera?

Cameras controlled by software systems, known as software-defined cameras (SDCs), are becoming increasingly popular in the security industry. To meet the industry’s ever-changing needs, cameras are evolving to incorporate features such as multi-dimensional data integration and artificial intelligence.

Huawei’s software-defined cameras can be applied in a wide variety of security scenarios such as facial recognition checkpoints, situation awareness, vehicle checkpoints, and Intelligent Transportation Surveillance (ITS). They support the continuous development and evolution of algorithms and applications. The open-ended platform provided by SDCs enables AI to be applied in more security scenarios.

New Potential for Cameras

On-Demand Adaption

Software-Defined Cameras New algorithms are integrated online so that one camera can be used for multiple purposes, which maximizes ROI.

Vs.

Traditional Cameras Algorithms are bound to hardware, with separate cameras for each purpose, which results in wasted expenditure.

Layered Intelligence

Software-Defined Cameras Enable capability sharing: One smart camera connects to multiple standard cameras, making them intelligent.

Vs.

Traditional Cameras Single-camera intelligence has restricted capability and low efficiency

Continuous Evolution

Software-Defined Cameras Online algorithm upgrades, AI-enabled self-learning, can be operated even while upgrading

Vs.

Traditional Cameras Manual firmware upgrades on site, high reconstruction costs, and slow rollout
