Sighthound to bring advanced computer vision to the Intel® NUC
Intel® NUC Mini PC unleashes full power of Sighthound’s intelligent computer vision software for home and business security
Palo Alto, California - June 9, 2016 - Sighthound, Inc. today announced that it will bring Sighthound Video to the Intel® NUC line of personal computers. Sighthound Video is software that uses state-of the-art computer vision to differentiate between people and objects in real time in video streams captured by home or business security cameras.
Sighthound Video relies on the latest in computer vision research and yet is beguilingly easy to use. Sighthound automatically finds IP cameras or webcams connected to your network and starts to monitor them to find people. Users can set rules to alert them to intrusions with dramatically fewer false alerts than traditional systems which rely on simple motion detection. There are free iOS and Android apps to monitor the application remotely. Over half a million people have now downloaded Sighthound Video.
The Intel® NUC Mini PC is a new paradigm in personal computing that re-imagines the desktop PC into a 4 x 4 form factor. With 6th Generation Intel® Core™ processors and Intel® HD Graphics 520 or Intel® Iris™ Graphics 540, the combination of power and small form factor are an ideal pairing for the Sighthound Video surveillance software. The Intel NUC unleashes the full power of computer vision in a device that can be hidden on a shelf or in a closet. See more at www.intel.com/NUC
“When we started Sighthound over three years ago, we did so in the knowledge that it takes a lot of processing power to run complex computer vision algorithms,” said Stephen Neish, CEO of Sighthound. “We’re thrilled to work with Intel and to help expand the Intel® NUC line into Digital Surveillance. As a discrete yet powerful device ideally suited to home and business surveillance, the Intel® NUC is hard to beat.”
“We are delighted that our reseller partners will, thanks to Sighthound Video, be able to leverage the flexibility and power of Intel® NUC devices for Digital Surveillance,” said Joel Christensen, General Manager, Intel NUC. “We designed the Intel NUC for tasks like these – where users require the power of a traditional desktop in a small and flexible form factor.”
In addition to Sighthound Video, Sighthound markets the Sighthound Sentry suite of computer vision capabilities, used by OEMs to add intelligence to products and services, and Sighthound Cloud, a set of computer vision APIs for developers.
Sighthound is the easiest way to add state-of-the-art computer vision software to your products and services.
