Benefits of Intel® Technology in AxxonSoft Products
How Intel® technology will help you build value-added solutions with Axxon software.
Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ Toolkit
OpenVINO™ is a toolkit for computer vision applications which extends workloads across Intel® hardware (including accelerators) and maximizes performance.
Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit is applied for neural network inference in the AxxonSoft AI analytics tools that help to detect:
- dangerous behavior by a specific pose (Behavior Analytics);
- fire and smoke, e.g. forest fires;
- suspicious items left in public areas;
- specific types of objects, such as humans or vehicles.
According to the test results obtained by AxxonSoft, neural network inference performance rises by 8.3x when using OpenVINO™ toolkit on an Intel® Xeon® E5-2630 v3.
Intel® Vision Accelerator Design Products
AxxonSoft boosts AI performance even more using Intel® Inference Engine High-Density Deep Learning (HDDL) plugin and Intel® Vision Accelerator Design products with Intel® Movidius™ VPU and Intel® Arria® 10 FPGA:
- Neural Compute Stick 2
Intel® Quick Sync Video
Intel® Quick Sync Video is a technology available on Intel® processors that provides hardware acceleration for H.264 or H.265 video decoding. Intel® Quick Sync Video is integrated in Axxon software for live and recorded video.
Using Intel® technology along with AxxonSoft products leads to:
- Reduced footprint on server CPU performance, especially when decoding H.265 video feeds.
- Dramatically improved decoding times.
- Servers can handle more concurrent video streams at HD resolution and even higher.
- More cameras can be connected to a single server, reducing hardware expenses and support issues.
- You can show more video channels on the client computer or use client computers with lower performance specs.
