Aimetis Helps Accelerate Adoption of Intelligent Video Management for Embedded Systems

Aimetis Ports Video Analysis Algorithms to Texas Instrument's DM64x™-based Digital Media Processor

Waterloo, Canada - 2004-12-20

Aimetis Corp., the leader in intelligent video management software (IVS) today announced that Aimetis' video analysis algorithms run on Texas Instruments Incorporated (NYSE:TXN) digital media processors. Porting the Aimetis' algorithms to TI's DM64x digital media processor makes IVS more scalable and affordable to the mass market.

Using TI's high performance DM64x digital medial processor, Aimetis' computer vision algorithms can be embedded directly on the edge devices, such as video cameras, recorders and encoders. Having Aimetis intelligence reside directly on video hardware will reduce the need for a centralized server and reduce the hardware requirements for an intelligent security system. End users benefit from higher performance and better bandwidth utilization.

"Several video hardware manufacturers have expressed a high level of interest in our intelligent video management software applications" said Marc Holtenhoff, CEO of Aimetis. "With our innovative algorithms running on TI's powerful digital media processors, Aimetis now makes it possible for them to bring intelligent video management capabilities to the mass market."

Aimetis' award winning technology, which is based on artificial intelligence called "computer vision", analyzes incoming video against user-defined security policies or rules. When an event violates a policy, for example, a person enters a restricted area or a vehicle parks in a forbidden area, Aimetis can alert a security agent via email or SMS or take automated action such as sound an alarm, lock a door or automatically control a zooming camera to focus on the perpetrator.
