Advantech announced its AI Network Video Recording (NVR) platform, MIC-720IVA, with the NVIDIA Jetson Nano, a small, powerful AI computer that delivers 472 GFLOPS of compute performance and consumes as little as 5 watts.
Given Jetson Nano’s powerful performance, MIC-720IVA provides a cost-effective AI NVR solution for a range of smart city applications. MIC-7200IVA supports 8-channel 1080p30 decoding, encoding and AI inference computing. With 8 x PoE LAN ports, IP cameras can be easily deployed. It has storage space for 8 channels of 24/7 video recording for up to 30 days. MIC-720IVA also supports 4 x hot-swappable 2.5″ HDD trays. This highly integrated system allows AI application developers to rapidly develop unique AI solutions based on Jetson Nano.
“NVIDIA Jetson is an energy-efficient and high-performance AI platform. It fits compute-intensive embedded applications on the edge,” said Linda Tsai, president of Advantech Industrial IoT Group. “By closely collaborating with NVIDIA and our software partners, we’re able to develop new AIoT edge solutions for smart manufacturing and smart city applications.”
With MIC-720IVA and Jetson Nano, NVR applications can adjust video monitoring from, “post-reaction support” to “reaction on the edge.” Advantech expects AI NVRs will encourage a revolutionary transformation in smart city applications.
