Berkeley, Ca. – Eutecus, Inc. has released a new version of its Multi-core Video Analytics Engine (MVE) Evaluation Kit, featuring an easy-to-use Graphical User Interface, among other improvements.
According to Eutecus CEO Stephen D. Hester, MVE is the first tool to enable embedding an entire high-performance video analytics event detection application on a single low-cost FPGA, the Spartan 3A DSP from Xilinx.
“A significant barrier to increased use of Video Analytics is the effort required during installation and set up / adjustment of the cameras,” he said. “This translates into real dollars.”
The tool's new GUI provides a simple, easy-to-learn and easy-to-use interface for the integrator and the end user.
The first version of the MVE Evaluation Kit embeds the company's proprietary advanced image processing technology into a FPGA. It is designed for developers of security camera, DVR and other device manufacturers wishing to implement a ready-made video content analysis solution into their product lines at a lower price point and higher performance.
MVE incorporates multiple event detectors running in parallel (“all the rules, all the time”), processing of HD video streams at a 30 fps video frame rate, as well as greater reliability and stability. MVE can also be used in conjunction with Eutecus' other advanced image processing solutions, such as object classification.
The MVE Evaluation Kit 2.0 is a fully-configurable test environment for experimenting and demonstrating MVE technology. Its features can also be used as prototypes for real-world video analytics solutions.
The MVE Evaluation Kit runs on the Xilinx Xtreme DSP Video Starter Kit (VSK).
