BYD Semiconductor, a BYD subsidiary that is preparing IPO, announced on October 14 that it has created a smart surveillance camera that can be used in multiple scenarios and has a wide range of functions.
The integration of AI has led to the rise of smart home appliances.and a new development route in the traditional security market that tends to be saturated. As the scale of domestic video surveillance systems becomes larger, the demand for security products and services in various industries has increased.
According to China IRN, the market size of China’s intelligent surveillance camera industry has reached 316.7 billion yuan ($44 billion), a year-on-year increase of 13.5%. The decline in costs has enabled video surveillance products to be deployed in a wide range of situations, from communities to security, from visual management to industrial manufacturing.
BYD Semiconductor, established in 2004, has systematically upgraded traditional smart surveillance cameras with its self-developed technology. The Q1 smart surveillance camera adopts a self-developed image sensor that achieves.high-quality real-time image signals with a resolution of up to 1920×1080.
The Q1 smart camera can be used in various types of residential areas, small and medium-sized shops, office areas of small and medium-sized companies, and others. The highly concentrated processor can reduce power consumption, ensure image quality and effectively reduce network bandwidth usage. A built-in microphone and speaker support audio and video intercom functions, call and monitoring functions, and provide a better method for recording storage.
After BYD acquired Ningbo Zhongwei Semiconductor’s fab factory in 2008, it began to develop the semiconductor business. At present, BYD Semiconductor has mastered self-controllable automotive-grade IGBT modules, and its products have achieved mass production, although its products are still only utilized in BYD’s vehicles so far. After passing the Shenzhen Stock Exchange’s listing review in April this year, the company’s the listing process was suspended at the end of September due to the expiration of the submitted materials.
The CMOS image sensor launched by BYD Semiconductor can be used on mobile phones, security monitoring products, and automotive. Meanwhile, the company’s vehicle-grade BSI 1080P and 960P image sensors have the advantages of low noise, high sensitivity, high image quality, and high reliability.
