FPGA-based solutions provide intelligent vision


Based on Eutecus' MVE video and fusion analytics technology and Altera’s Cyclone V SoC and Enpirion PowerSoC devices, Altera and Eutecus announce the ReCo-Pro Multi-channel HD Video Analytics platform for intelligent lighting, traffic monitoring and building security.

Available from Eutecus, the ReCo platform has been chosen by Sensity Systems as the foundation for adding intelligent vision processing to its high-speed, Light Sensory Network (LSN), which is currently being installed in several US metropolitan areas. The Sensity open, multiservice NetSense platform enables industrial lighting owners and operators to reduce energy costs while offering advanced networked services for smart city applications, such as environmental and weather monitoring, parking management, retail analytics and enhanced public safety.

The integration of Eutecus’ intelligent video and sensor analytics implemented on Altera FPGAs within the Sensity NetSense platform extends the capabilities of the applications, enabling greater operational awareness, effectiveness and security.

Dan McNamara, Vice President, Industrial, Automotive and Broadcast Business Unit, Altera, comments: "Eutecus leveraged the processing power, flexibility and small size of the Cyclone V SoC-based ReCo-Pro platform to develop intelligent video analytics solutions for smart city applications. Our SoCs with dual core ARM processors and programmable hardware combine to provide an optimal low-power platform with the right flexibility and processing power for a broad range of emerging IoT applications.”

"The Eutecus ReCo family of products are reconfigurable, scalable, and remotely upgradable FPGA-based computing platforms; the eyes that see and detect instantly, ready for future upgrades and innovation. The use of Eutecus’ MVE video and fusion analytics technology in intelligent city applications provides the benefits of increased operational efficiency and public safety, while also serving to protect individual privacy," adds Csaba Rekeczky, CEO and President, Eutecus.

The ReCo product family with video and fusion analytics solutions from Eutecus is now available for customers to enable dual and quad channel HD video processing systems. The embedded MVE IP cores are available on both the Altera Cyclone IV FPGA-powered ReCo-Duo and the Altera Cyclone V SoC-powered ReCo-Pro platforms. Both platforms are also supported by Altera’s Enpirion power solutions.
