What Is a Software-Defined Camera?

The video surveillance industry has entered the intelligent era. Cameras have evolved from offering mere visibility — today, they provide multi-dimensional, intelligent awareness, where images are understandable and analyzable, and trends are foreseeable.


The software used in traditional cameras is coupled with the hardware, severely limiting their application. Conversely, Huawei’s innovative Software-Defined Camera (SDC) — supported by advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) chips, an open-ended Operating System (OS), and a future-proof ecosystem — decouple intelligent algorithms from hardware, in turn supporting the continuous, nearly instantaneous online upgrade of algorithms and self-learning. This enables the sustainable development of algorithms throughout the hardware lifecycle, requiring just a one-time hardware investment.


Huawei SDC adopts an open-ended software architecture that can integrate more advanced algorithms from ecosystem partners, achieving inclusive AI. Additionally, an open hardware architecture allows — indeed, even encourages — connections to various third party sensors, helping to create additional social and business value for customers in diverse sectors.


To adapt to varied security demands and process massive amounts of information and data, AI-based computing power has become an important basis for intelligent video products. Quite simply, Huawei SDC directly overcomes the security limitations that traditional cameras face.


In Huawei’s comprehensive range, there are three main series of SDC: the X (eXtra) series, the M (Magic) series, and the C (Credible) series — all are equipped with advanced AI chips, able to load different algorithms, and meet diversified intelligent requirements.


X (eXtra) series: Equipped with superior AI chips and a full algorithm set, driving intelligence to new levels.

M (Magic) series: Intensive AI-powered cameras featuring lightweight computing power and intelligence, providing intelligence for dedicated scenarios.

C (Credible) series: Ultra-simplified Operations and Maintenance (O&M) achieves high-level video quality diagnosis, ensuring an optimal viewing experience for ultra-High Definition (HD) footage.

Vehicle Cameras

This type of camera supports license plate recognition, vehicle type recognition, vehicle color recognition, and classification of motor vehicles, non-motor vehicles, and pedestrians, applicable to vehicle detection and capture in multiple scenarios such as urban roads, inter-city roads, and city gates.

  • eXtra (X) series

    X series cameras support four major intelligent applications: license plate recognition, in-vehicle attribute recognition, vehicle capture, and traffic flow statistics.
