Hanwha Releases Dual-Lens Barcode Reader Camera

Surveillance company Hanwha Vision has released the first dual-lens barcode reader (BCR) camera, combining barcode recognition and video capture in a single device. The company says the new technology provides logistics companies with a convenient way to reduce costs, minimize losses, and improve efficiency.
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 with a 25mm lens. The camera can also be integrated with Hanwha Vision’s logistics tracking Software.
As a standalone 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.
“Hanwha Vision technologies are relied on by a number of the world’s leading logistics and package delivery service companies,” said Hanwha’s Woowon Ra. “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.”
Hanwha says integrating the BCR camera with Hanwha’s Vision logistics tracking software can help companies boost productivity, improve efficiency, and reduce theft or damage. It will enable operators to easily track a package and access video playback by scanning the invoice barcode.
By comparison, when logistics and CCTV systems operate separately, employees 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.
Other management systems within the company’s logistics solution set, which can be integrated with the logistics tracking software include packing video management and dock safety management.
