Develop Multiplatform Computer Vision Solutions

Explore the OpenVINO™ toolkit (formerly the Intel® Computer Vision SDK)

Make your vision a reality on Intel® platforms—from smart cameras and video surveillance to robotics, transportation, and more.

Your Computer Vision Apps...Now Faster

Develop applications and solutions that emulate human vision with the Open Visual Inference & Neural Network Optimization (OpenVINO™) toolkit. Based on convolutional neural networks (CNN), the toolkit extends workloads across Intel® hardware and maximizes performance.

  • Enables CNN-based deep learning inference on the edge
  • Supports heterogeneous execution across computer vision accelerators—CPU, GPU, Intel® Movidius™ Neural Compute Stick, and FPGA—using a common API
  • Speeds time to market via a library of functions and preoptimized kernels
  • Includes optimized calls for OpenCV and OpenVX*
