Develop Multiplatform Computer Vision Solutions

Explore the New OpenVINO™ toolkit (formerly 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*

Discover the Capabilities

Hardware Acceleration

Harness the performance of Intel®-based accelerators: CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs, VPUs, and IPUs.

Who Needs This Product?

Software developers and data scientists who:

  • Work on computer vision, neural network inference, and deep learning deployment capabilities
  • Want to accelerate their solutions across multiple platforms, including CPU, GPU, VPU, and FPGA

What's New?

  • A new cross-hardware approach deploys pretrained deep learning models from popular frameworks such as Caffe*, TensorFlow*, and MxNet.
  • The Model Optimizer imports and converts pretrained models, optimizes topologies, performs horizontal fusion, eliminates batch normalization, and uses quantization.
  • The inference engine delivers heterogeneous, inference solutions on a CPU, GPU, VPU, or FPGA.
  • FPGA support enables CNN workload acceleration through the Intel® FPGA Deep Learning Acceleration Suite.
  • A library of computer vision functions and preoptimized kernels is available through OpenCV.
