The solution includes Eutecus’ Multi-Core Video Analytics Engine (MVE) intellectual property (IP), which performs the analytics functions in the FPGA.

Because this solution can be integrated into HD Internet protocol cameras, it could be ideal for a variety of applications, including traffic surveillance that monitors accident detection, vehicle counting, lane-exit detection, stopped traffic, red-light violations and vehicles moving in the wrong direction.

Altera and Eutecus’ FPGA-based video analytics solution is the first and only solution capable of delivering the processing power required for full HD 1080p/30fps real-time video processing.

The greater performance allows the user to track dozens of user-defined rules. For example, the user can define rules, configure alerts and remotely update rules for events they want detected, such as a person entering a room or a restricted area in an airport terminal or a building entrance.

The IP combines massively parallel algorithms and specialized coprocessors with multiple Altera Nios II cores integrated into a Cyclone IV FPGA. It also comes with a software GUI that allows designers to customize the event-detection parameters and rules for their specific applications. Eutecus’ IP includes a robust application programming interface (API) that allows customers to interface with their own video management systems or develop their own custom GUI.

Altera offers a single-vendor source model for the video analytics solution. The IP and FPGA can be purchased directly from Altera, a purchasing model that eliminates the need to work with multiple vendors for licensing fees, NRE charges, or royalties.

"With Altera’s FPGA’s unprecedented video processing capabilities coupled with Eutecus’ MVE analytics technology, customers can track multiple objects with multiple rules in varying weather conditions in real time, giving customers a more powerful and flexible solution compared to existing technology. This solution can also be leveraged for other applications such as automotive driver assistance which includes rear view and surround view cameras," said Arun Iyengar, vice president of the military, industrial, and computer, consumer, and storage business units division at Altera.

"Altera’s one-stop shop approach for the FPGA and IP reduces the barriers for customers looking to expand their analytics capabilities." said Csaba Rekeczky, CEO and president of Eutecus.
