Digital Barriers has announced a development for wireless surveillance streaming which can be deployed with connected cars and smart cities. The solution uses EdgeVis Live running on the NVIDIA Jetson TX1 AI supercomputer.
The Jetson TX1 features NVIDIA Maxwell architecture, 256 NVIDIA CUDA cores, 64-bit CPUs and a power-efficient design. It also includes the latest technology for deep learning, computer vision, GPU computing and graphics, making it ideal for embedded AI computing.
EdgeVis Live delivers high-definition video over cellular networks, overcoming the challenges of low or constrained bandwidth. It is claimed to deliver near-zero latency live streaming with advanced edge analytics in an embedded solution for vehicles and public safety surveillance.
Developed for military surveillance where losing video feeds for even a few seconds can have life and death consequences, EdgeVis Live has been adapted for defence, law enforcement, transportation, energy and public safety applications in more than 30 countries worldwide.
EdgeVis Live transforms any HD-IP cameras into secure wireless surveillance assets, streaming at ultra-low bandwidths with near-zero latency, anytime and anywhere.
By incorporating the Jetson TX1 with EdgeVis Live, the system can stream mission-critical video from 4K UHD cameras over cellular networks and run analytics at the edge without impacting the video streaming quality.
Robert Lambert, chief scientist at Digital Barriers started, ‘The current trend in video surveillance is towards analytics at the edge, and NVIDIA’s advanced GPU technology allows us to push the boundaries on edge capability. The NVIDIA Jetson TX1, combined with EdgeVis streaming and SmartVis analytics, will support a new generation of solutions for law enforcement and smart city applications that demand high performance at an affordable running cost.’
Eddie Seymour, EMEA embedded sales director at NVIDIA, added, ‘NVIDIA Jetson is the ideal platform for companies like Digital Barriers, which is working with NVIDIA as a Metropolis AI city partner. Using Jetson’s GPU/DL capabilities, Digital Barriers can extend its experience in defence and national security to provide security solutions to the automotive industry and for smart cities.’
