I'm Stephanie Essin, and you're watching the Intel Developer Zone update. This time, we jump ahead to the year 2019 to take a look at the newly released Intel System Studio. We see Intel and VR working in an unlikely realm-- architecture-- like buildings and houses, not like Intel architecture. And we see how Intel is helping turn video data into smart city decision-making. 

The new Intel System Studio 2019 is out and ready to download. Let's jump right in and take a look at some of the new features. You'll have rapid insights into platform-level performance, code vectorization, and threading with the new Intel Advisor tool. 

OpenCL tools can assist offload compute to Intel processors. You can improve debug with Intel Processor Trace, and you can even create a cloud project. See the links provided to see how Intel System Studio 2019 will help accelerate development of smart connected devices, and click that download button to experience it yourself. 

It's no surprise that a lot goes into designing an architecturally-sound building. Designers have to get it right, both for style and function. It can be hard to effectively show your vision on just a blueprint or in a computer program, mapping how the structures would look and feel. And that's where VR can help. 

Intel partnered with InContext Solutions and developed something called Project Mall to see how VR could be helpful in this space. It's a proof of concept to demonstrate the commercial potential of VR in the architectural realm. As more and more retail spaces seek out ways to engage customers through virtual and augmented experiences, opportunities expand for innovative VR developers. 

Imagine being able to control every detail, down to the lighting conditions that change with the time of day. On a more practical level, having a virtual walk-through of your vision can cement logistics, from restroom location to emergency management. When all parties can visualize the setup, complete with a human element in a virtual setting, there's no telling what you can bring to life.

And if there were ever a real problem, how would you begin to solve it? With new smart city technology, that challenge could get a lot easier. Think about how video data gathered by smart cameras could offer a rich, time-based record of urban environments. With the right analysis, it could give you insights into how a city moves, and changes, and that could open up wild opportunities. 

Videonetics is a company that is leaning into this growing industry, and it offers a suite of video solutions. The Videonetics open platform, together with Intel architecture-based solutions, works with a wide range of cameras and network video recorders to turn rich video data into actionable insight. 

With Videonetics and Intel, cities can help improve citizen safety, law enforcement, emergency response, and even traffic management. Check out this solution brief to get an idea on some key features, including some other use cases. Maybe it'll spark your next idea for smart cities. 

Thanks for watching. Next month will be our last episode of IDZ update. It's been a heck of a two-year run for us, but you can still catch me on the IDZ Weekly every Monday. We'll see you next time
