Eutecus 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. MVE is a solution to enable embedding an entire high-performance video analytics event detection application on a single low-cost FPGA, the Spartan 3A DSP from Xilinx.
Stephen D. Hester, CEO of Eutecus said, “A significant barrier to increased use of Video Analytics is the effort required during installation and set up / adjustment of the cameras. This translates into real dollars. Eutecus' 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, which we demonstrated at the Electronica 2008 Trade Show in Munich as a Xilinx Alliance Partner, embedded our advanced image processing technology into a FPGA. MVE Evaluation Kit 2.0 embeds our extensive know-how about how to use advanced image processing technology into the same platform. This release continues our objective of providing improved, robust Video Analytics for the real world at a lower cost point through integration at the edge of the network”
Eutecus designed MVE for OEMs wishing to implement a ready-made video content analysis solution into their product lines at a lower price point and higher performance than existing offerings on the market. MVE provides numerous advantages over DSP and PC-based solutions, including multiple event detectors running in parallel, 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 image processing solutions, such as object classification.
