Dahua Technology has recently launched its Cooper-I Series XVR. As the first entry-level XVR to offer AI functions, this series allows customers to avail AI-enabled XVRs without spending a fortune. AI has been a common feature in today’s monitoring industry, which paved the way for the AI era. With its continuous innovation and development, AI has become part of Dahua’s standard configuration, even for entry-level products. With the combination of HDCVI 6.0 PLUS innovation and cutting-edge AI technology, Dahua has realised the AI upgrade of its complete HDCVI recorder product line, continuously making breakthroughs to lead the industry’s HD-over-Coax development.
“AI has penetrated into every aspect of our lives. Its value in improving efficiency and saving time and manpower costs has gradually been acknowledged, especially in terms of alarm accuracy and quick target search. However, the price of AI products might not be economical for budget-conscious customers. That is the major reason why we released the Cooper-I Series – to equip all HDCVI recorders with AI capabilities, making AI accessible to everyone,” said Nicole Liu, XVR Product Manager of Dahua Technology.
The Cooper-I Series XVR brings great convenience and value to both installers and users, especially with its AI functions that include SMD Plus and AI Coding. These intelligent features are enabled by default and do not require extra configuration, making the whole installation process significantly easier and faster.
The Smart Motion Detection Plus, or simply SMD Plus, can accurately identify people and vehicles and filter out false alarms triggered by irrelevant objects such as leaves, animals, light, etc., eliminating the hassle caused by repeated false alarms. During evidence collection, instead of manually screening a massive amount of videos after an event, users can search the target using target types (human and vehicle), which helps improve investigation efficiency and accelerate case closure.
The SMD Plus function of Cooper-I Series XVR works smoothly with an HDCVI TiOC camera in preventing possible crime thanks to its Active Deterrence feature. The camera’s built-in siren together with its Smart LED lights can effectively warn off and deter intruders. This device is also integrated with the Dahua DMSS mobile application that users can use to monitor their surveillance operation anytime, anywhere. Moreover, it also supports customisation of alarm ringtones that can be played by the front-end camera when the target is detected. Users can record their own voices based on different scenarios and upload it to the camera through the DMSS app. For example, a greeting like “Welcome!” can be set at the entrance of a supermarket, while warning prompts such as “No trespassing” and “No parking” can be set respectively in private villas and areas where parking is forbidden.
Another advantage of the latest Cooper-I Series XVR is its AI Coding function. Compared to conventional H.264/H.265 coding, it saves more than 50% of bandwidth and storage space while maintaining complete images of people and vehicles and without compromising image quality. Thanks to CBR (Constant Bit Rate), AI Coding ensures compatible integration with third-party devices and platforms, as well as stable operation of the system.
Overall, the Dahua Cooper-I Series XVR is indeed an intelligent recorder and storage device that offers convenience, ease of use, cost-effectiveness and other technological advantages. It is suitable to a wide array of application scenarios such as retail shops, parking lots and private villas. Equipped with amazing AI features including SMD Plus and AI Coding, this series makes AI inclusive and available for everyone without breaking their budget.
