Easy setup (no analytics calibration)

DW’s Ai allows operators to choose what to detect and where; with a user-friendly and straightforward UI, users can set up multiple scenarios specific to their monitoring needs without complex calibration.

Object Classification

DW's Ai software processes video streams to detect and classify every object appearing in the detection zone. Our Deep Learning engines perform object detection (DL Object tracker), automatically classifying the objects in the scene: people, cyclists, cars, buses and vans, trucks, motorcycles, bicycles and bags.

Optimized Ai for the edge

MEGApix Ai's analytics engine is especially designed for the edge, working on the camera side to substantially reduce bandwidth consumption and accelerate response times.

Ambarella CV22 chip with CVflow®

Ambarella’s CV22S chip combines image processing, real-time 30fps 4K video encoding and CVflow® architecture to provide the deep neural network (DNN) processing required for the next generation of intelligent IP cameras.

Deep Learning

MEGApix Ai intelligent algorithms offer deep learning with better object detection and identification of environmental elements. The result is a substantial reduction in false alarms for control room operators and security personnel. Allowing only valid events to filter through increases efficiency and productivity, and reduces unnecessary costs.

Reduce false alarms

MGApix Ai accurately categorizes moving objects and people, distinguishing them from environmental items such as spiders, shaking shadows and moving lights. The result is a reduction in false alarm rates, saving storage and enabling more efficient monitoring.

Ai Analytics and deep learning

DW Ai solutions include all the Intelligent Video Analytics and advanced Video Content Analysis detection capabilities of the Ai engine. In addition, Ai servers empower users with deep learning objects and people tracking and color filters.

Star-Light Plus™ color in darkness technology

Star-Light Plus™ color in near-total darkness technology provides crisp, clear images in the absence of ambient light.

White light LEDs built-in

Create deterrence and provide crystal-clear images in color without the need for external illumination or the potential loss of color and detail from B/W images.

F1.3 Super Aperture Lens

The camera’s lens has an F1.3 wider-than-average aperture, allowing more the amount of light to enter the lens (compared to an F2.0 lens), resulting in brighter images.

Environmentally-Friendly Warm Light

The 3300 Kelvin warm White-Light provides ample lighting with no need for other sources of illumination. The warm White-Light is environmentally friendly, with minimal light pollution for residential areas while maintaining true color with no harsh discoloration in color images.

Back-Illuminated Sensor (BIS) Technology

Backside-illumination technology flips the position of the pixels and the circuitry to collect the light from the sensor's backside. This improves light capture from 60% to over 90%.
