Intel Movidius Myriad chip powers Avigilon h5 CCTV cameras.

AVIGILON H5 cameras, powered by the latest Intel Movidius Myriad X VPU, feature Avigilon’s next-generation AI and video analytics technology.

“We are developing our H5 smart camera platform to run sophisticated deep neural networks on the device itself, providing it with powerful new abilities to learn, detect and notify operators of events that may need further investigation,” says Dr. Mahesh Saptharishi, Avigilon’s chief technology officer.

“Like Avigilon, Intel is at the forefront of AI technology innovation and Intel Movidius VPUs will help us further expand the application and use of AI and video analytics to solve real-world challenges.”

“Intel Movidius VPUs enable power-efficient hardware acceleration for deep neural networks. The collaboration on this technology with Avigilon will usher in a new generation of video analytics capabilities with deep learning approaches,” says Jonathan Ballon, vice president, Internet of Things group at Intel.

“The H5 camera line’s utilization of AI facilitates sophisticated event detection and automatic notification, providing an excellent showcase of the compute capabilities of Intel acceleration technologies, which allow for high performance deep learning applications at the network edge.”
