Altera and Eutecus Single-chip, FPGA-Based Solutions “See” and Provide Intelligent Vision for Smart Cities.
San Jose, Calif.,—March 24, 2015—Altera Corporation (NASDAQ: ALTR) and strategic IP partner Eutecus announce the availability of the ReCo-Pro Multi-Channel High-Definition (HD) Video Analytics platform based on Eutecus’ MVE video and fusion analytics technology and Altera’s Cyclone® V SoC and Enpirion® PowerSoC devices.
Available from Eutecus, the ReCo platform has been chosen bySensity 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 NetSense platform extends the capabilities of the applications, enabling greater operational awareness, effectiveness and security.
“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,” said Dan McNamara, Vice President of the Industrial, Automotive and Broadcast Business Unit, Altera. “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 offers reconfigurable, scalable and remotely upgradable FPGA-based computing platforms—the eyes that see and detect instantly, ready for future upgrades and innovation,” says Csaba Rekeczky, CEO and President of Eutecus. “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.”
