What Is a Software-Defined Camera?

The security industry has entered the intelligent era. Cameras have evolved from devices that simply process images to those with multi-dimensional awareness; they can now handle and analyze video streams, and they are even able to foresee trends.


Conventional cameras bind software together with hardware, making a convenient device but with limited applications. However, Huawei's innovative Software-Defined Cameras (SDCs) decouple hardware from software and support the continuous online upgrade of algorithms, enabling sustainable development of algorithms throughout the hardware lifecycle with one-time hardware investment.


SDCs also adopt an open-ended software architecture that integrates industry-leading algorithms provided by partners, promoting an inclusive AI ecosystem for both business and everyday life.


Huawei's innovative SDCs adhere to three mission-critical standards: professional AI chips dedicated to SDCs, open-ended operating system specially for SDCs, and open-ended and prosperous algorithm and application ecosystem.

Omni-Data Structuring Cameras

This type of cameras are smart cameras that can simultaneously capture and recognize motor vehicles, non-motor vehicles, and pedestrians. The cameras support concurrent running of multiple algorithms and can meet video structuring requirements in complex scenarios such as backstreets and urban roads.

    I am the operations director of a national scenic spot.

    In peak season, over 100,000 tourists visit our scenic spot every day. Our main aim is to make sure that everyone enters safely and efficiently. Meanwhile, to ensure safe and enjoyable tourism, we need to intelligently reconstruct the legacy facilities, but on a limited budget.

    Huawei SDCs can replace some cameras on the existing network and connect to the common legacy cameras, using the existing computing power and transforming the legacy cameras into intelligent ones. This helps maximize our ROI and operational efficiency.
