Targeting growing demand in the AI retail and safety markets, Advantech, a leading industrial edge AI solution provider, is pleased to announce its collaboration with NVIDIA to integrate NVIDIA Metropolis Microservices for Jetson into the latest Advantech AI Network Video Recorder (NVR), the MIC-717-OX, which is based on NVIDIA® Jetson Orin™ NX system-on-modules.

The MIC-717-OX is equipped with multiple video inputs, video storage, Metropolis Microservices integration, iService cloud solution, and Over-the-Air (OTA) service. Developers can easily adopt AI on the MIC-717-OX through simple API calls, saving both time and costs on AI development and deployment.

NVIDIA Metropolis Microservices for Jetson: Simplifying AI with Visualized Results and Streamlined Deployment

NVIDIA Metropolis offers robust and accurate AI models, including detection of people and animals, posture changes, occlusion, low lighting, crowded spaces, shadows, and outdoor scenarios—making it an ideal choice for smart city applications. The Metropolis Microservices empower developers to modernize their application stack, streamline development and deployment, and future-proof their apps by offering the latest generative AI capabilities through straightforward API calls.

In conjunction with the NVIDIA Video Storage Toolkit, which manages on-camera sources, video storage, and metadata, this suite of services provides powerful reference workflows, pre-built vision AI inference pipelines, system monitoring, and cloud connectivity. These features enable developers to start working immediately, with visualized AI inference results and microservices such as system monitoring, IoT gateways, and cloud connectivity services that aid in solution maintenance and customization.

MIC-717-OX: AI NVR Solution for Retail & Safety

Advantech previously offered customers the NVS-960 AI NVR embedded with the NVIDIA Jetson Orin NX module. To provide an easy-to-use platform for end users, Advantech has now introduced the MIC-717-OX AI NVR solution, combining NVS-960, the integration of NVIDIA Metropolis Microservices, iService, and OTA remote management services.

The MIC-717-OX is compact and compatible with any connected video stream, supporting 8x PoE, 2 x 1 GbE RJ-45, and 1 x 3.5" SATA HDD for efficient video streaming and storage. Additionally, based on NVIDIA accelerated computing, Advantech’s iService bridges the MIC-717-OX and Metropolis stack, allowing the management of all AI inference results at the edge. This solution is ideal for the retail and safety and security industries, particularly for AI edge deployments with advanced analytics.

Recognizing the need for large-scale device deployment in these industries, Advantech has collaborated with Allxon to provide remote management services to overcome maintenance challenges such as OTA updates, AI model updates, and board-support-package (BSP) management.
