Hanwha Vision launches the industry’s first dual sensor BCR camera

□ Combines barcode recognition and video capture of logistics center in a single device

□ Improves operational efficiency & lowers installation and maintenance costs compared to conventional systems

□ Fully-integrated Logistics Solution available with ‘Vision Logistics Tracking Software’

Providing logistics companies with a convenient way to reduce costs, minimize losses, and improve efficiency, Hanwha Vision is introducing the first dual lens Barcode Reader (BCR) camera, which combines barcode recognition and video capture all in a single device.

The AI-enabled BCR camera accurately tracks and recognizes parcel barcodes on high-speed conveyors at a speed of 2m/s. The image sensors for barcode recognition and video monitoring offer 4K resolution and a wide Field of View (FoV) with a 25mm lens. The camera can also be integrated with Hanwha Vision’s innovative Vision Logistics Tracking Software (VLTS).

As a single device, the unit can help lower installation and maintenance costs compared to conventional systems that require barcode readers and surveillance cameras to be installed independently.

«As a global vision solution provider, Hanwha Vision technologies are relied on by a number of the world’s leading logistics and package delivery service companies,» said Woowon Ra, Solution Planning Team Leader, Hanwha Vision. «Having the industry’s first dual lens BCR camera is just another example of Hanwha Vision’s commitment to innovation and ability to deliver market-specific solutions that help our customers to maximize productivity, reduce costs, and achieve their business goals.»

Powering productivity with AI-enabled VLTS (Vision Logistics Tracking Software)

Integrating the BCR camera with Hanwha Vision’s VLTS, can help companies boost productivity, improve efficiency, and reduce theft or damage.

With an integrated logistics system (WMS) and CCTV system (NVR), the Hanwha Vision VLTS enables operators to easily track a package and access video playback by simply scanning the invoice barcode.

By comparison, with logistics and CCTV systems typically operating separately, employees are forced to check the last location and time through a barcode search every time an event occurs. Then, they must revert to the surveillance system to view a recorded video to see what happened at that precise time and location.

The power of a fully-integrated Logistics Solution set

The new dual lens BCR camera is just one part of Hanwha Vision’s complete range of edge-based AI offerings that make up Hanwha Vision’s comprehensive and fully-integrated Logistics Solution set, covering every part of inbound and outbound package delivery, receiving, handling, shipping, and tracking.

Other management systems within the company’s Logistics Solution set, which can be integrated with the VLTS, include:

  • Packing Video Management: Quickly matches videos with work history and helps operators respond effectively to customer claims for errors, omissions, or damage throughout the packing process.
  • Dock Safety Management: Edge-based AI camera oversees the safety of dock loading and unloading, helping operators to minimize hazards and easily document and report on compliance with all safety and industry regulations.
