Dragonfruit Announces Technology Integration with Hanwha Techwin

BENGALURU, India—Dragonfruit, a global provider of the industry’s first massively scalable video AI platform, is pleased to announce its partnership with Hanwha Techwin, a global provider of intelligent video surveillance solutions.

The two companies help solve real-world problems such as liquid spill, fire and smoke detection, and safety equipment by combining Dragonfruit’s cloud VMS and advanced AI platform with Hanwha Techwin’s cameras.

Introduction and purpose of the integration

The combined Hanwha Techwin and Dragonfruit solution covers the entire edge-server-cloud setup for physical security. Dragonfruit integrates with Hanwha Techwin P, X, T, Q, L series of Wisenet cameras via a transparent auto-discovery mechanism. The cameras are connected to the Dragonfruit AI-powered Frontier M1 base station, and the data is ingested into the Frontier platform for video management and advanced AI analysis.

Challenges

Together, Dragonfruit and Hanwha Techwin were able to solve complex AI challenges for customers. Here are some recent examples:

  • A retail chain wants to understand traffic patterns around newly installed kiosks.
  • A large distribution company wishes to protect its external inventory.
  • A national retailer must monitor liquid spills to prevent customers or employees from being injured.

Solutions

Hanwha Techwin and Dragonfruit’s end-to-end solution helps customers solve these and other challenges:

  • Hanwha’s XNF-9010RV fisheye camera provided data to Dragonfruit’s occupancy management suite to calculate traffic patterns around kiosks, including occupancy metrics, dwell times, counts and heat maps.
  • Hanwha’s strategically placed XNO-6120R bullet cameras combined with an advanced AI model from Dragonfruit solved the difficult challenge of detecting and alerting on outdoor smoke and fire to protect inventory.

Installing Hanwha’s PNB-A9001 cameras in store aisles allowed Dragonfruit to detect liquid spills and send real-time alerts to store employees for prompt cleanup.
