Video Analytics Solution (VAS)


Based on our advanced real-time analytics platform, Megh Computing’s Video Analytics Solution (VAS) addresses critical use-cases throughout the retail supply chain.

Use case Description Business value
Fraud prevention Fraud prevention due to miss-scans at self checkout counters Decrease shrink at POS
Inventory intelligence Decrease inventory distortion due to fraud or misplacement Reduce inventory loss
Smart Surveillance Enhance access control systems with video surveillance Create a safe and secure retail environment

VAS implements the complete video analytics pipeline (consisting of the ingest, transform, and infer phases) inline in the FPGA, resulting in higher performance efficiencies and lower latencies. It delivers 4X better performance/$ compared to GPU-based video analytics solutions.

VAS is supported on the following platforms:

  • Servers:
    • Dell PowerEdge R740 and R640
    • HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen10
  • FPGAs:
    • Intel Programmable Accelerator Cards with Intel Arria10 and Stratix 10 FPGAs
    • Xilinx Alveo U200 and U250 Data Center Accelerator Cards
