Many developers and users of security solutions are looking for ways to get more out of their surveillance systems by deploying intelligent edge computing platforms. UP Xtreme, from AAEON’s UP Board division, is being deployed along with technology from partners including Intel®, Milestone and SAIMOS® to bring Smart Surveillance to these customers with the UP Xtreme Smart Surveillance kit.
With the ever-increasing importance of on-site security, surveillance cameras are installed virtually everywhere, recording footage passively. Smart surveillance takes things to the next level by adding intelligent processing of data that’s already being gathered to analyze traffic with heatmaps, monitor areas with virtual fences, or reacting to data in other ways to allow for automated control or alerting staff on premises. UP Xtreme Smart Surveillance provides all the technology needed to power these applications in one box, working as an AI-enabled NVR solution to proactively monitor video streams supporting up to 32 cameras simultaneously (Intel® Core™ i7 model with Milestone XProtect® Express+).
Working with technology partners Intel, Milestone, and SAIMOS, AAEON’s UP team is deploying the UP Xtreme Smart Surveillance solution to overcome the challenges present in traditional security camera systems. UP Xtreme Smart Surveillance works by integrating video management software (VMS) from Milestone with video analytic software from SAIMOS, then adding a deep learning AI edge inference through the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit, to provide a total package solution that saves deployment time and cost for end users, as well as overcoming challenges such as storage issues. The AI inference is also accelerated with two Intel® Movidius® Myriad™ X VPUs, helping provide even more power alongside the 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processor that comes with the UP Xtreme system.
