AxxonSoft is among the first companies to join the Dahua Integration Partner Program (DIPP) which focuses on creating comprehensive and integrated solutions with 3rd party partners for wider customer and end-user base. DIPP benefits partners on both technical and business sides, including in-depth marketing, project and technical support.
AxxonSoft was the first to develop a solution based on the Dahua Open Platform (DHOP). 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:
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.
Metadata is essential for tracking an object with digital zooming or multiple cameras, and for TimeCompressor video synopsis technology. The Axxon MomentQuest 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.
