UP Xtreme: Powering Intelligent Surveillance Solutions
Many developers and users of security solutions are looking for ways to get more out of their surveillance systems by deploying intelligent edge computing platforms. UP Xtreme, from AAEON’s UP Board division, is being deployed along with technology from partners including Intel®, Milestone and SAIMOS® to bring Smart Surveillance to these customers with the UP Xtreme Smart Surveillance kit.
With the ever-increasing importance of on-site security, surveillance cameras are installed virtually everywhere, recording footage passively. Smart surveillance takes things to the next level by adding intelligent processing of data that’s already being gathered to analyze traffic with heatmaps, monitor areas with virtual fences, or reacting to data in other ways to allow for automated control or alerting staff on premises. UP Xtreme Smart Surveillance provides all the technology needed to power these applications in one box, working as an AI-enabled NVR solution to proactively monitor video streams supporting up to 32 cameras simultaneously (Intel® Core™ i7 model with Milestone XProtect® Express+).
Working with technology partners Intel, Milestone, and SAIMOS, AAEON’s UP team is deploying the UP Xtreme Smart Surveillance solution to overcome the challenges present in traditional security camera systems. UP Xtreme Smart Surveillance works by integrating video management software (VMS) from Milestone with video analytic software from SAIMOS, then adding a deep learning AI edge inference through the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit, to provide a total package solution that saves deployment time and cost for end users, as well as overcoming challenges such as storage issues. The AI inference is also accelerated with two Intel® Movidius® Myriad™ X VPUs, helping provide even more power alongside the 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processor that comes with the UP Xtreme system.
“UP Xtreme Smart Surveillance offers video analytics combined with a modern video management system, integrating everything into a one-box solutions which can be deployed with both new or existing infrastructure,” said Jürgen Konetschnig, CTO of SAIMOS.
“The hardware and software are integrated to make deployment of smart surveillance applications easier and simpler for users in any field,” Jügen added.
The BOXER-8130AI is built to easily integrate into any environment. Featuring six MIPI CSI-2 interfaces, the BOXER-8130AI can support up to six MIPI cameras. The BOXER-8130AI is also built for easy maintenance, with an SD Card slot, USB OTG, remote ON/OFF and almost all of its I/O ports together on one side. The BOXER-8130AI also features two antenna ports, perfect for mobile or AIoT gateway applications.
Once UP Xtreme Smart Surveillance is installed, the platform is easy to use and provides intuitive analytic parameter settings for users to have a comprehensive overview of the entire surveillance installation. UP Xtreme Smart Surveillance provides key functions to support applications such as people/object counting, heatmapping, virtual fence and perimeter protection, dynamic blurring and object detection. The system uses data analytics and edge computing to provide real time analysis, and can provide proactive measures through alerting relevant staff as soon as an incident is detected.
UP Xtreme Smart Surveillance also provides users with a solution that is flexible and scalable from number of cameras to AI acceleration. UP Xtreme Smart Surveillance is helping to bridge the gap for modern security and surveillance systems. UP Xtreme Smart Surveillance is available through the UP Shop website or by contacting AAEON and UP Team representatives.
