AWS Panorama is a new machine learning Appliance and SDK, both of which allow organizations to bring computer vision to their on-premises cameras to make automated predictions with high accuracy and low latency. With AWS Panorama, companies can use compute power at the edge (without requiring video streamed to the cloud) to improve their operations, by automating monitoring and visual inspection tasks like evaluating manufacturing quality, finding bottlenecks in industrial processes, and assessing worker safety within their facilities.
The AWS Panorama Appliance is a hardware device that you can install on your network to connect to existing cameras within your facility, to run computer vision models on multiple concurrent video streams. The AWS Panorama Device SDK is a Software Development Kit (SDK) for third-party manufacturers to run sophisticated computer vision models on their cameras, allowing hardware vendors to build new devices that are enhanced with computer vision for object detection or activity recognition. Using the Appliance, or cameras running the Device SDK, computer vision can help companies accomplish tasks like evaluating manufacturing quality, finding bottlenecks in industrial processes, or counting patrons in retail stores, even in environments with limited internet connectivity.
AWS Panorama is available in Preview in the US East (N. Virginia) and US West (Oregon) regions. You can get started building and testing computer vision applications with the AWS Panorama Appliance Developer Kit by signing up to the Preview.
