HANGZHOU, China /December 14, 2017 Dahua, a leading solution provider in the global video surveillance industry, has announced another breakthrough giving integrators, resellers and users unprecedented levels of access to its newly launched DHOP(Dahua Open Platform), which allows third party applications to be downloaded and installed on Dahua Network Cameras (currently only available on the Ultra series IP cameras but in the future will be available on all new models).

DHOP is user-friendly in several ways. For third party partners, it eliminates some of the previous restrictions from Dahua, allowing them to develop their own applications. They can also develop their own webpage/web clients to manage their applications. For integrators, resellers and end users, it provides them with choices for the most suitable add-on applications developed by third party partners, which have been comprehensively tested and verified by Dahua, thus their interoperability and reliability have been guaranteed.

Cooperation with Dahua through DHOP will bring wider benefits in the long-term. Strong support is guaranteed not only during development but also during the later stages. Verified and tested applications will be released on Dahua's website, boasting access to a global user base. DHOP partners have the potential to participate in various marketing activities and be promoted via the Dahua global partner networks. End users can purchase licenses directly from DHOP partners, for whom Dahua will help to release the license in cameras.

AxxonSoft Ltd.was the first one to develop a solution based on the Dahua Open Platform. An application installed on the camera collects information about moving objects in the frame, including coordinates, direction of movement, size, speed, color, and so on. This metadata is transmitted to the Axxon Next VMS server along with the video stream. The data is then:

used for powerful scene analytics in the Axxon Next VMS.
saved in the archive for instant criteria-based video search.

The joint solution by Dahua Technology and AxxonSoft has multiple advantages over systems with server-side video analytics, since it allows the server to process about 10 times more video feeds. And passing raw metadata (instead of events) makes the system very flexible. Users are not limited to the detection tools available on a camera, since they can use any of the Axxon Next VMS video analytics tools — detection of line-crossing, motion and stopping in a restricted area, loitering, abandoned objects, etc.

The AxxonMomentQuest fast video search system is also based on metadata and does not require pre-configuring detection tools. The video search criteria are set on the fly (for example, find a red car in the parking lot), which makes it truly interactive.

AxxonSoft Developed the First DHOP-based Solution

"Our joint solution, without exaggeration, brings smart video surveillance systems to a new level of accessibility and cost-effectiveness. Initial investments are reduced due to significantly lower equipment costs. At the same time, the system stays current for a long time due to the continual development of Axxon Next video analytics and free updates," notes Alan Ataev, AxxonSoft Global Sales Director.

"We believe this Open Platform will gather all sorts of exciting new ideas and innovative solutions in the field and by combining our strengths we will benefit the industry as a whole and the world in general," said James Wang, Deputy General Manager of Dahua Overseas Business.

Openness, an essential element for modern collaboration and enhancing the surveillance industry, has always been a concept held dear to Dahua and is now being realized via DHOP. With a mission of "Enabling a safer society and smarter living", Dahua will continue to focus on "Innovation, Quality, and Service", to serve its partners and customers around the world.
