Imaging Devices Ride On The Edge

Taiwan-based digital imaging company Altek Corp. is introducing three technologies: Vision AI chips, AI commercial surveillance cameras, and 3D depth image sensing modules. These are the focus of the theme of “Bringing Vision AI to The Edge.”  The company’s vision AI chip and AI commercial surveillance cameras enable high-resolution smart surveillance by supporting AI human/object detection, event detection and behavior recognition.

 

The entire AI process is conducted in the camera and corresponding alerts are sent out according to the detection results. It reduces the network bandwidth for data transmission to the cloud and improves the AI detection speed. This technology can be utilized in multiple use cases, including in retail, restaurants and hospitals.

In partnership with CyberLink, Altek’s 3D sensing solution has been integrated with CyberLink’s AI facial recognition engine FaceMe. The integration strives to enhance the anti-spoofing capabilities of smart security systems, enabling them to accurately detect facial images and videos apart from live human faces.

 

With Qualcomm, Altek has co-developed a commercial AI surveillance IP camera. This camera is powered by the QCS603 platform with distributed edge AI computing power to enable AI detection of humans and objects within the recognition area in the camera. It also supports Amazon KVS so that users can leverage the AWS cloud platform to access, process and store streaming video with ease for further analysis by deep learning.

With Microsoft and Qualcomm, Altek also co-developed a Visions AI Developer Kit. By supporting Microsoft Azure IoT Edge and using Qualcomm AI Engine, it strengthens Azure’s deep learning service and delivers ultra-high-resolution video quality, creating optimal capability for processing vision AI at the edge for various markets and applications.
