Advantech Launches New MIC-720IVA Platform with NVIDIA Jetson Nano for AI NVR Applications
Advantech, a leading provider of industrial automation solutions, today launched its new AI Network Video Recording (NVR) platform, MIC-720IVA, with the NVIDIA Jetson Nano, a small, powerful AI computer that delivers 472 GFLOPS of compute performance and consumes as little as 5 watts.
Advantech has been deeply involved with NVIDIA products since it transformed into an AIoT provider. Advantech has long adopted NVIDIA’s GPU cards for servers and edge systems in AI inference and deep learning. Now, Advantech has developed its first Jetson Nano product, the MIC-720IVA, aimed at the intelligent video analytics and NVR market.
Given Jetson Nano’s
powerful performance, MIC-720IVA provides a cost-effective AI NVR solution for
a wide range of smart city applications. MIC-7200IVA supports 8-channel 1080p30
decoding, encoding and AI inference computing. With 8 x PoE LAN ports, IP
cameras can be easily deployed. It has storage space for 8 channels of 24/7
video recording for up to 30 days. MIC-720IVA also supports 4 x hot-swappable
2.5" HDD trays. This highly integrated system allows AI application
developers to rapidly develop unique AI solutions based on Jetson Nano.
“NVIDIA Jetson brings
intelligence to IoT solutions,” said Murali Gopalakrisha, head of product
management of Autonomous Machines, NVIDIA. “Through our collaboration with
Advantech, we’re making huge steps forward in making AIoT a reality.”
With MIC-720IVA and
Jetson Nano, NVR applications will be able to adjust video monitoring from,
“post-reaction support” to “reaction on the edge.” Advantech expects AI NVRs
will encourage a revolutionary transformation in smart city applications.
will be shown in the Advantech booth at GTC 2019 from March 18 to
