UP Xtreme Smart Surveillance

UP Xtreme Smart Surveillance, powered by Intel® 8th gen processor and 2 Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ X VPUs, is a solution that reforms traditional CCTV into intelligent surveillance by applying deep learning and video analytics technologies.
Smart surveillance understands what it sees and reacts to it; it monitors an area by creating a virtual fence, generates heatmap and counts people flow to give insights. Data Interfaces with RESTful API makes the integration execute smoothly. All of these features come in one box — UP Xtreme Smart Surveillance.
With the right performance, cost, and power efficiency at every node, you can scale vision technology across your infrastructure and unlock new possibilities for visual data.
Being an AI-enabled NVR solution, it works proactively on the video stream and supports up to 32 cameras* simultaneously.

Milestone XProtect® VMS

Milestone is a global-leading pioneer within IP video surveillance technology.
Milestone designs, develops and delivers industry-leading IP-based video management software(VMS). They boast over 150,000 installations worldwide, 9,000+ supported devices and unlimited integration possibilities with an open-platform approach.


A market-ready solution with SAIMOS®

SAIMOS® is the expert in running Video Analytics on a VMS platform. By implementing SAIMOS® C3 CORE, it provides different algorithms for several use cases such as perimeter security, people counting and left/removed object detection.
Users can see real-time analytics and take action proactively by its power of extracting security, business and operational insights with snapshots across video surveillance systems.

Key Features

What can you achieve with this kit?

UP Xtreme Smart Surveillance automatically creates analytics events and alarms at the time users set the monitoring configuration, hence, it eliminates the need to constantly watch the footage.

For verticals such as banking, retail and hospitality industries, UP Xtreme Smart Surveillance is an ideal solution as it can:

  • Solve video storage issues
  • Process multiple IP-cameras at-the-edge from different locations
  • Reduce cost on video monitoring for service industries
  • Alarm users when objects are detected
  • Connect up to 32 cameras
    • Compatible with Core™ i7-8665UE CPU and upgrade to Milestone XProtect® Express+

The solution equips itself with data analytics at-the-edge and notifies users to take action proactively. For example,

To prevent intrusion, the solution can instantly send an alarm to operators when people enter a restricted area of a market.
To detect person by setting blacklist or whitelist, once the solution detects the marked person, it will send a notification straightaway.

Offering up, amongst other features, people counting and real-time occupancy statistics which provide clear insight of the live-status in supermarkets. With these stats, owners/ government can limit the number of people allowed in the shop. In-store traffic from occupancy statistics can also prevent citizens from entering into crowded stores.

Therefore, UP Xtreme Smart Surveillance is our answer to retail, banking, and small business surveillance.

Application Stories

UP Xtreme Smart Surveillance – An intelligent surveillance solution

The traditional approach to security monitoring involves a reliance on analog security cameras which record constantly, based on one-way information delivery. The following concerns arise when deploying the system:

  1. large amount of space required to store footage on network video recorders (NVRs);
  2. one NVR required per location considering the bandwidth usage for 24/7 streaming;

Cameras worldwide collect 2500 petabytes of data a day

Powered by 8th Generation Intel® Core™ CPUs and fully supported by the OpenVINO™ toolkit, it’s tailor-made to provide AI at the edge: capable of accommodating up to six Intel® Movidius™ Myriad X VPUs and boasting optional WiFi, Bluetooth, Long-Term Evolution (LTE), and Long Range (LoRA) connectivity.                  — Originally published at Intel
