The highly integrated video solution can help customers address the challenges of high resolution video processing in a cost efficient manner and enable abundant applications including live streaming and broadcasting, medical imaging, video surveillance, and machine vision.

Market Solutions

Live Streaming and Broadcasting

Application Requirements

Event organizers were looking for a robust and rugged system solution for indoor/outdoor event locations that would operate reliably in a wide range of environmental conditions for event broadcasting. And since streaming cloud platforms, such as YouTube, are becoming more popular, the system was also required to include video capture, processing and streaming capability to broadcast live events to any place in the world with Internet access.

Winning Factors

  • ARK-2230, Intel® Celeron® J1900 performance on a totally reliable embedded system
  • MOS-4140S - capture, edit and stream event video via SDI interface
  • Event streaming application software development kit (SDK)

Application Diagram

Medical Imaging

Application Requirements

Hospitals required systems with video processing capability that could capture medical imaging produced by medical equipment. The challenge was that most medical imaging had non-standard video profiles and the unique timing of the medical signal needed to be taken into consideration as well.

Winning Factors

  • ARK-1124, Intel® Atom™ E2940 QC SoC , palm-sized design with brilliant computing. Good fit with medical equipment.
  • MOS-4140D, capture and process medical images via DVI interface
  • Medical application software development kit (SDK)

Application Diagram

Video Surveillance

Application Requirements

To upgrade traditional analog CCTV systems, instead of continuously recording the video to local DVR system, this solution provider was looking for a system that could capture video from CCTV cameras, and conduct video analysis for different purposes. For example, in transportation, video analysis might be for License Plate Recognition (LPR).

Winning Factors

  • ARK-2250L, 6th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 performance featuring slim size and multiple-I/O embedded system
  • MOS-4140C, capturing video from two CCTV cameras simultaneously
  • Almost Zero Latency (< 50ms) to capture video for video analysis

Application Diagram

On Board Surveillance

Application Requirements

A supplier of fleet equipment was looking for an on-board vehicle surveillance solution that could monitor and record video footage of on-going events in and from the vehicle. With this setup, drivers should be able to see the current situation of passengers or assets located in different parts of the vehicle, and respond quickly to conditions or disputes. Most importantly, evidence needed to be available in the form of recorded footage for post-event analysis and possible dispute resolution.

Winning Factors

  • ARK-2250V, 6th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 Transportation Fanless System
  • PoE/PoE+ ports for supporting mainstream IP cameras, enabling in-vehicle and remote live-view of in-vehicle status
  • Shock resistant, video-grade 2.5” SSD with hot swappable function ensured reliable storage of video records and flexible storage exchange

Application Diagram

Machine Vision

Application Requirements

Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) systems are becoming the quality control method of choice to replace manual checks. Although AOI systems can be far more swift and accurate than visual checks that were previously performed by manual operators, the most intensive machine vision systems had been designed to inspect objects in fixed positions; this lack of flexibility narrowed the scope of inspections. That problem is now solved.

Winning Factors

  • ARK-3520, 6th Gen Intel® Core™ i7, extreme performance in a super-reliable embedded system
  • DVP-7011HE, quick, synchronous image capture
  • WebAccess/SCADA enables real-time factory monitoring, in-cloud production information, and data integration from sensors, HMI, to controllers
