Video analytics open platform for the development of edge analytics

Videoanalytics.org : 16 October, 2008  (Technical Article)
AIT100 from Apollo Imaging enables the development of edge analytics capability on TI equipped cameras
Meeting the needs of Video Analytics developers for a standalone video acquisition and processing system, Apollo Imaging Technologies releases the AIT100 Intelligent Image Processing system. A fully featured open Video Analytics on the Edge (VAE) development platform, the AIT100 is suitable both for prototype development and production.

The AIT100 is based on the Texas Instruments TMS320DM642 720mHz DSP with a full complement of resources -- 256M SDRAM, 32M flash, 10/100 Ethernet, RS232/485, analogue video out, audio in/out, and general purpose I/O and IEEE 802.3af compliant Power over Ethernet. Image acquisition is either built-in MegaPixel sensors or external NTSC/PAL video.

To speed development of VAE applications, the AIT100 is available with an SDK that includes an IP Camera demo application with a Windows client, a complete Board Support Package (BSP), and a JPEG encoder. The IP Camera demo application is DSP/BIOS based and requires Texas Instruments' Code Composer Studio and a compatible emulator. The windows client application is a Microsoft .Net application and will require Microsoft Visual Studio if any modifications are required. Image processing algorithms written in C have proven to be readily ported to the platform.

'Video Analytics on the Edge (in the camera) offers a variety of advantages: full frame rate raw video is available to the image processing algorithm; information sparse video need not tie up the network bandwidth -- only video of interest need be transmitted. Additionally, system expansion and management is much simplified -- each camera comes with its own resources. Not only is the camera smaller, less complex and much more power-efficient than a conventional PC-based system, the VAE system enables high response rate/low latency solutions simply not possible in a networked environment,' said Richard McClellan, CEO of Apollo Imaging Technologies.
