Dahua Technology, a video-centric smart IoT solution and service provider, hosted a webinar on 6 May, 2020 with Omdia. The webinar was centred on the question: How can thermal cameras help prevent the spread of COVID-19?
Omdia is the new global technology research powerhouse, established in 2019 with the combination of the Informa Tech’s research brands (Ovum, Heavy Reading and Tractica) and the acquired IHS Markit technology research portfolio. Collaborating with Dahua Technology, the comprehensive webinar attracted a total of 1,684 registrations.

They ended with a live Q&A.
“With rich experience accumulated from its early participation in China’s anti-pandemic measures, Dahua Technology’s body temperature monitoring solution has been successfully applied to numerous scenarios overseas, such as the Ministry of Health in Malaysia, IFEMA Hospital in Spain, Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport in Lebanon, Ankara Central Railway Station in Turkey, Seoul Railway Station in South Korea and Foxconn factory in Vietnam. Using the robust thermal body temperature monitoring system, we will continue to assist local users to better prevent the spread of COVID-19 and lower the possibility of re-occurrence, safeguarding the public health,” said Simon Nash.
“This virtual event will highlight the pivotal opportunities and technologies Omdia sees in the market. Specific to the coronavirus pandemic, thermal body temperature monitoring technology will be discussed as a keystone solution which has emerged in response to COVID-19 and will likely play a more common role in many surveillance systems in the future,” said Josh Woodhouse.
Thermal cameras can be a crucial tool for organisations and public facilities that seek to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Dahua Technology has actively participated in the early stages of the domestic anti-pandemic measures and accumulated a lot of valuable experience. In various countries and regions of the world, Dahua Technology will assist local users to use thermal body temperature monitoring technology based on local situations to better prevent COVID-19 and safeguard the public health.
