Existing Solutions

Hardware

Edge-AI Platform

Edge AI platform machine
  • Edge-AI Platform is a low size, weight, and power versatile hybrid hardware solution that ingests 6 different types of video inputs in the visible and/or Infrared, mitigates multiple concurrent degradations and corrects for jitter and atmospheric distortions for long range horizontal paths
  • Edge-AI Platform then applies optimized AI for the detection of people, vehicles, maritime vessels, and airplanes also in the visible and Infrared bands. Edge-AI also matches and recognizes faces, license plates, hull numbers, and tail numbers.
  • Edge-AI Platform provides an FTP service and streams out AI-driven smartly encoded video in H264 and H265, accommodating bitrates as low as 64kbps while preserving high quality regions of interest.  
  • Edge-AI Platform is modular, scalable, and customizable to smaller targeted systems like Crystal Edge and 5K-TVS Edge.

5K-TVS Edge

5K Tv edge machine
  • 5K-TVS Edge is a small form, hardware solution (FPGA) that accepts video signal as input and returns a corrected version for long range (up to 5 km) visual threat detection and subsequent processing
  • 5K-TVS Edge merges two dozen different functions to intelligently correct a spectrum of video quality issues, concurrently and in real-time, adding to Crystal atmospheric stabilization for long range video
  • 5K-TVS Edge provides an accompanying tablet and GUI for minimal interaction
  •  

Crystal Edge

Crystal edge machine
  • Crystal is a plug-n-play, small form, hardware solution (FPGA) that accepts video signal as input and returns an enhanced version for viewing or processing
  • Crystal merges a dozen different functions to intelligently correct a spectrum of video quality issues concurrently and in real-time
  • Crystal requires no configuration as it moves across different environments
  •  

Software

AI platform app Interface

GPU-accelerated Windows and Linux applications that perform the following functions in the visible and Infrared bands:

  • Accepts and sends multi-protocol uni- and multi-cast streams
  • Accepts USB cameras
  • Accepts still images and pre-recorded video sequences
  • Mitigates multiple concurrent video degradations
  • Corrects of Atmospheric Distortions and Jitter
  • Detects of People, vehicles, boats, and airplanes
  • Recognizes faces, license plates, hull numbers, and tail numbers
  • Adaptively encodes outgoing streams to accommodate low bandwidth while preserving quality in important regions
  • Records video upon detection
  • Saves and FTPs stills upon detection

5K-TVS App

5K Tv app interface

GPU-accelerated Windows and Linux applications that perform the following functions in the visible and Infrared bands:

  • Accepts and sends multi-protocol uni- and multi-cast streams
  • Accepts live USB cameras
  • Accepts still images and pre-recorded video sequences
  • Mitigates multiple concurrent video degradations
  • Applies Super-resolution
  • Corrects of Atmospheric Distortions and Jitter

Crystal App

Crystal App Interface
5K Tv app interface
  • Crystal App is a standalone GPU-accelerated desktop application (Linux, Windows, and Android) that accepts live and pre-recorded videos and still images
  • Crystal App performs automatic hands-off enhancement, mitigating low light, extreme contrast, washout, backlighting, fog, haze, dust, and pollution
  • Crystal App performs super-resolution and denoising
  • Crystal App is also an API plug in that integrates with existing video viewing systems to automatically enhance images, video clips, and video streams in real-time
