Over the past decade or so, the camera has changed dramatically. When first introduced to the public, the camera was very simplistic and only capable of providing black and white imagery. Today, cameras are more impressive than ever before and camera technology continues to improve at a record pace. Of course, it is no secret that these products are not completely flawless. This was very evident when cameras all around the world were commandeered and utilized to launch a major cyber-attack on some of the Internet most popular sites, including Twitter and Amazon.
Due to the revelation of the attack and the hacker’s methods, the Chinese technology firm, Hangzhou Xiongmai Technology, has been forced to recall some of their earlier products. According to the recent report, it is believed that the Chinese firm will recall more than 4 million Internet connected cameras from the United States market. The company intends to recall four specific models of cameras, while citing potential security vulnerabilities that make them easy to hack. Of course, the real reason for the attack may not originate with the company. Instead, the company specifically noted that the biggest security problem was caused by consumers failing to change the camera’s default passwords. Due to the lack of action on behalf of consumers, attackers were able to easily gain control over the cameras.
And of course, this led to last week’s massive cyber-attack on Dyn. The attack’s impactful was widely felt and left many major websites offline for several hours. In order news, photo booth rental Toronto has exploded to new levels. More and more Canadian consumers have decided to rent a booth for a social event, such as weddings and birthday parties. The drone camera has also been improved in dramatic fashion. DJI has created a brand-new drone camera with a 30X zoom. The camera has already been attached to many commercial aerial vehicles throughout the country. Of course, consumers shouldn’t get their hopes up.
Unfortunately, the new Zenmuse Z30 camera is specifically designed for industrial and governmental applications. Therefore, the average individual will likely never get the opportunity to experiment with it. According to the company, they want their Z30 camera to survey situations when it could be too risky for humans to do so. DJI has become very popular thanks to its selfie stick, but the company’s cameras are far more impressive.
Have you ever thought about technology that could determine whether or not drivers are wearing their seatbelt? Well, Movidius, an American company that produces processor chips for deep learning and computer vision is joining forces with Hikvision to create a smart-connected security camera. This camera will be able to detect suspicious packages and drivers, who aren’t wearing seatbelts. Smart cameras currently do not store artificial intelligence software, because they are too energy hungry. Cloud storage is utilized to store motion-detected event clips, which is a result of suspicious activity.
Hikvision’s smart cameras will be able to classify a specific car model and identify a potential intruder. Cloud storage will be ditched and the smart alert system will be embedded into the camera, so all of this is possible. Cameras, with the embedded Movidius chip are currently being displayed at the China International Exhibition on Public Safety.
