In the vast field of AI applications, AI computer vision plays a pivotal role in helping industries to transform and achieve intelligent automation. Using computers to replace human eyes, machine vision, and image processing can be used for object recognition, tracking, measurement, and more. Research reports indicate that the AI computer vision market will reach $27 billion by 2030. Recognizing the massive opportunity in AI image processing, Innodisk, a global-leading AIoT solution provider, officially launched a new series of intelligent camera modules, expanding its AIoT peripheral product line and enhancing the overall layout of Innodisk’s AI solutions.
Compared with existing products on the market, Innodisk’s new camera modules have three significant advantages: customized development, platform compatibility, and ISP adaptation. The camera modules are fully customizable to suit the varied needs of integrators while being compatible with all major operating systems and software with the ISP technology that can be adjusted according to the customer’s application.
At the same time, quality and longevity are guaranteed to the same high standards as all Innodisk products and are backed up with 3 years of warranty.
Camera modules are used in a wide variety of applications, from ATMs to hospital bedside infotainment systems. Innodisk’s optimized cameras will meet the varied requirements of these applications, including AI image recognition, where a small MIPI camera may need to fit into a parking meter or smart charging station to detect number plates or into a production line to detect defects automatically. Alongside Innodisk’s other video recording technologies, such as InnoREC for SSDs, the company creates a complete solution for integrators’ video capture needs.
Johnny Wu, Director of Innodisk’s International Intelligent Peripheral Application Division, said, “Innodisk AI is the complete integration of software and hardware solutions, in addition to key technologies such as platforms and algorithms. The recently launched camera module series will blossom in various emerging AI and intelligent applications worldwide, and are expected to achieve outstanding results in the increasingly prosperous field of AI computer vision applications.”
Innodisk has released its USB 2.0 and MIPI (ISP integrated) series camera modules, including models EV2U-RMR2, EV2U-SGR1, and EV2U-RMR1. The company will continue to optimize and enrich its product line up and aim to release 4K cameras with auto-focus functionality.
Besides releasing camera modules, Innodisk also launched its FPGA Machine Vision Platform. Powered by AMD’s Xilinx Kria K26 SOM, which was designed to enable smart city and smart factory applications, Innodisk’s FPGA Machine Vision Platform is set to lead the way for industrial system integrators looking to develop machine vision applications. It will become a perfect combination with the company’s camera modules.
Moreover, customers can take advantage of AMD’s Xilinx Kria K26 SOM’s ability to market applications quickly, thanks to the full support of Innodisk’s AI Suite SDK. The suite includes an FPGA Model Zoo and Innodisk’s in-house software solutions, such as iCAP (Innodisk Cloud Administration Platform) and iVIT (Innodisk Vision Intelligence Toolkit). iVIT, for example, provides a deep learning environment for the efficient development and deployment of “no-code-operation” solutions.
Innodisk hopes its latest expansion into the camera and FPGA market, alongside its new AI focus, will help customers build an intelligent world.
