“Todays security solutions ask for a new international network & knowledge event!”

 Dahua Technology – world leading manufacturer and supplier of video surveillance products- is Founding Partner of the Amsterdam Security Convention. Bill Zhou, Technical Support Manager of Dahua Benelux-: “Dahua is honored to be Founding Partner. For us the Amsterdam Security Convention is an international knowledge and networking event, bridging the gap between IT and Security. We are excited to meet all kind of potential partners in terms of security solutions. Todays security solutions are expected to have strong openness and interoperability. Therefore Dahua will showcase a fully networked and integrated range of cameras, access control, applications and software solutions. We attend the Amsterdam Security to communicate more, learn more and cooperate with more partners in the industry.”

“Technology is changing at an unprecedented pace”

What does Dahua see as the most important current global developments regarding security? Bill Zhou: “Hi-definition, network and intelligence are 3 major trends for global video surveillance industry. We’ve started testing fields like automation, and IoT. Security industry has been connected to almost all vertical industries like public sector, government, education etc. We will expand more applications for a smarter society leveraging our expertise on video technology. Technology is changing at an unprecedented pace, and product life cycle is getting shorter. Security players have to invest heavily to catch up with technology development. Meanwhile, the change drivers may be coming from a new dimension such as AI, IoT and Data Technology.”

Building a learning organisation

Dahua has therefore been investing about 10% of annual sales in R&D the last years. Bill Zhou: “We have built a learning organization that cherishes innovation. With more than 5,000 engineers, we are developing 1 new patent every 3 days on average. We made very good progress on Face Recognition with the application of AI technology. We just set a new record for LFW Facial Recognition, beating the record set previously by Baidu, Tencent, Google and others. We are working harder and harder to stay competitive and to deliver better value to customers.”

IT & Security

The main theme of the convention is Bridging the gap between IT and security, how does Dahua relate to this theme? Bill Zhou: “Today, with the development of IoT and AI, security industry is migrating to a new era of having big data processing and artificial intelligence in everyday video surveillance. Dahua created a four layers technology architecture to face the new era: semiconductor chipset, big data, artificial intelligence and advanced application. Through this new architecture, Dahua can deploy faster and more precise awareness of IOT, intelligent data collision analysis and reliable data services. Does it sound more like IT than security?  It is quite a reality that IT and Security are converging!”
