Share this content


2022 has been a year full of development and innovation for Dahua and the company has launched various upgrades to its existing product portfolio as well as an artillery of new products and solutions that address specific needs/problems in the society.

With key technologies such as AIoT, big data and software, Dahua solutions enable families and businesses to detect and respond to safety and security risks more quickly, accurately and effectively than ever before.

They also provide value beyond security, such as enabling cities, businesses and other organisations to incorporate the visual data captured by our cameras as part of their smart solutions for everything from alleviating traffic congestion, monitoring parks and wildlife, tracking waste streams, to enhancing sales at retail outlets.

Here are some of the technological innovation highlights this year:

Dahua Full-color

This year, Dahua showcased some of the integrations of Full-color technology that create more business value for customers and end users:

  • Full-color + TiOC: Provides Smart Dual Illuminators, Active Deterrence and AI. It can effectively warn off intruders with active deterrence and notify users in time with real time alarm, providing pro-active video surveillance to properties that require 24/7 security
  • Full-color + Panoramic: Features Dahua Full-color Dual Lens 180° Panoramic PTZ & IPC devices that are equipped with dual sensors that deliver a 180-degree field of view. It avoids warping and pixel loss using standardized image correction technology and utilises pixel-level metadata fusion algorithm to create a seamless 180° wide-angle image
  • Full-color + ZOOM: Offers approx. 5x optical zoom capability and auto-focus function, providing clear color details of the monitored scene even after zooming in. The camera can also capture clear full-color image even from far distances with its long-distance illumination capability
  • Full-color + 4K: Adopts 1/1.2” image sensor (currently Dahua’s best low-light IPC sensor) that provides 110% pixel size increase compared to common 8MP sensor. Its F1.0 large aperture can capture more available light and the maximum light energy that the sensor can receive is increased by two times


Dahua has continuously developed additional AI features for WizSense, a series of wide range AI products and solutions that include IPC, PTZ, NVR and XVR, in order to deliver accurate detection, quick target search, simplified operation and inclusive AI products for customers. This year’s two main upgrades include:

  • Quick Pick: A feature that allows searching based on extraction of clothing and vehicle color and comparison with those in our database. It significantly narrows down the search results to locate the footage of the target of interest
  • AI Scene Self-Adaption (AI SSA): Adopts deep learning algorithm that can identify various specific scenes (e.g. rain, fog, backlight, low light, flicker) and adjust the image parameters accordingly to ensure the best image quality


The Dahua WizMind, a full portfolio of solutions composed of project-oriented products including IPC, NVR, PTZ, XVR and thermal cameras that adopts deep learning algorithms, has also introduced new upgrades this year:

  • Human-based Applications: Includes the Dahua Panoramic System that is designed to capture situational awareness in scenarios that require a 360°, 270° or 180° panoramic view. The Human Metadata 2.0 is equipped with deep learning algorithm that can help operators locate targets more efficiently. It also includes PPE Detection technology that can detect compliance of wearing personal protective equipment in the workplace
  • Vehicle-based Applications: The Parking Space Management technology can detect parking space usage in each area of the parking lot and display parking space status in real time. The Illegal Parking Detection automatically takes snapshots of the detected vehicle and saves its metadata as evidence. The illegal parking PTZ can also send a warning voice audio through its built-in loudspeaker
  • Thermal Imaging Applications: the Industrial Temperature Measurement function utilises thermal imaging technology to realize all-weather, fast and online temperature measurement. Data reports are automatically stored online, making it easily accessible for users


2022 marks the tenth anniversary of Dahua HDCVI (High Definition Composite Video Interface). Over the past ten years, the HDCVI technology has been leading the analog technology into the high-definition era. Now, it is leading the Over-Coax technology into the AI era. Here are the four technological highlights of the Dahua HDCVI this year:

  • AI for all: Features Cooper-I series, the industry’s first entry-level AI XVR. Powered by AI chipset and deep learning algorithm, all Dahua XVR series today are equipped with cost-effective AI capabilities, such as SMD Plus, Perimeter Protection, AI Coding, etc.
  • Scheduled AI: Allows users to set different AI functions (available in XVR5000-4KL-I3 series) according to different time periods (up to six time periods a day). The system will automatically switch to execute each AI task at the corresponding time
  • Smart Dual Illuminators: Supports two kinds of supplementary lights: IR and warm light. In Smart Illumination Mode (default mode), the warm light will only turn on when a target is detected. When the target leaves the rule area, the warm light will turn off and the IR light will turn back on
  • Real 5MP 16:9: Is a leading technology in the HD-Over-Coax market that solves the image distortion problem caused by previous 5MP 4:3 cameras. The camera is also equipped with Super Adapt technology that can recognise and adjust to various monitoring environments such as indoor, outdoor or areas with intense lighting

Dahua DeepHub

The Dahua DeepHub smart Interactive whiteboard delivers a flexible, multimedia approach to teaching and conferencing, providing participants with an immersive, interactive and content-rich experience.

It features wireless projection, whiteboard writing, video conferencing and file management. When connected, it becomes a supersized screen which can be controlled using a stylus or your fingers.

What’s more, it also utiliSes Zero Air Gap Technology on the screen to reduce parallax for clearer image display. Ink signal latency is also optimiSed, providing approximately 50 pages or 1,500 strokes of continuous writing.

Other highlights

Wireless Alarm: Features the AirShield Wireless Security System that includes Alarm Hub, PIR Detector, PIR-Cam, Smoke Detector, Door Detector, Keyfob, Repeater, Input Expander, Internal & External Siren and more.

Thermal Outdoor & Handheld Thermography: Includes the Thermal Monocular Camera Series (M Series), which are handheld cameras tailored for outdoor scenarios such as hiking, wildlife conservation, search and rescue missions, hunting, etc. It also features the Thermal Handheld Thermography Camera (DH-TPC-HI20, a portable diagnostic instrument for daily inspections of small industrial scenarios.

PoE 2.0: Equipped with practical functionalities such as PoE Watchdog, BT 90W (Red Port), Intelligent PoE and Long Distance PoE Transmission, the PoE 2.0 introduced other intelligent features this year including Green PoE and Perpetual PoE.

Off-grid Solution: Integrates 4G network transmission technology and solar power into an intelligent surveillance system, creating a lightweight monitoring experience for outdoor environments with electricity and network shortages.

Future trends and product/solution line-ups

Digital-intelligent transformation has become the main theme of the industry today. In the future, with the help of AI, constant updating of intelligent monitoring products will become the main growth point of the security monitoring industry in developed cities around the world.

In fact, the “2023 Trends in Video Surveillance” ebook from Eagle Eye Networks mentions that businesses are budgeting for video surveillance platforms that are AI-ready and future-proof.

Here’s Dahua’s plans and product/solution line-ups for next year:
