AWS Panorama is a machine learning Appliance and Software Development Kit (SDK) that allows organizations to bring computer vision (CV) to on-premises cameras to make predictions locally with high accuracy and low latency. With AWS Panorama, you can automate tasks that have traditionally required human inspection to improve visibility into potential issues. For example, you can use AWS Panorama to evaluate manufacturing quality, identify bottlenecks in industrial processes, and monitor workplace safety and security - even in environments with limited or no internet connectivity.
The AWS Panorama Appliance is a hardware device that allows you to add CV to your internet protocol (IP) cameras that weren’t built to accommodate computer vision. AWS Panorama Appliance turns your existing cameras into smart cameras that can run CV models on multiple concurrent video streams.
The AWS Panorama Device SDK is a software kit that enables third-party manufacturers to build new cameras that run more meaningful CV models at the edge for tasks like object detection or activity recognition. AWS Panorama-compatible cameras work out of the box with AWS machine learning services.
Manufacturing quality control
AWS Panorama enables CV at the edge to detect manufacturing defects and deliver alerts so you can take immediate corrective action. With AWS Panorama, you can identify and resolve issues faster to help improve product quality and decrease costs.
Reimagined retail insights
With AWS Panorama, you can leverage CV to uncover insights about your retail environment to improve operations and customer experience. For example you can use AWS Panorama to count customers, generate heat maps, and calculate the length of queues.
Industrial sites can use AWS Panorama to identify when workers or vehicles are straying into dangerous, off-limit zones. It can integrate with your safety systems to sound an alert to the individual on the ground, or even send a signal that shuts off machinery.
Supply chain efficiency
AWS Panorama can provide critical input to supply chain operations by tracking throughput, recognizing bar codes or labels of parts or completed products, and optimizing freight operations in transport yards.
AWS Panorama Appliance
Add computer vision to your existing onsite cameras with no modification by using the powerful AWS Panorama Appliance. You can analyze video feeds from multiple cameras in parallel, generating highly accurate predictions within milliseconds. The Appliance is dust proof and water resistant, giving you the flexibility to install it in different environments without compromising functionality. Learn more »

Learn more »
Add ML to your existing cameras
Plug the AWS Panorama Appliance in, connect it to your network, and the device will automatically discover your existing fleet of IP cameras. The AWS Panorama Appliance also seamlessly works alongside your existing video management systems (VMS).
Make decisions in real time
You can analyze video feeds within milliseconds from a single management interface across a variety of locations. This enables real-time visibility into operations and fast decision making with AWS Panorama enabled devices or the AWS Panorama Appliance.
Enable CV in limited connectivity environments
AWS Panorama removes the heavy lifting from each step of computer vision-based process improvements by integrating with familiar AWS services, such as Amazon SageMaker, to build and train your CV models. This enables you to run those CV models directly on the device (at the edge) and allows you to access real-time predictions in remote and isolated places where network connectivity can be slow, expensive, or intermittent.
Meet data privacy and governance requirements
AWS Panorama is ideal for organizations with data governance rules that require on-premises processing and storage of video. By acting locally on the data (at the edge) the images remain onsite, enabling compliance with data privacy and governance requirements.
Get started quickly with CV applications
CV applications combine ML models and business logic to address a specific use case. AWS Panorama gives you the flexibility to build your own CV applications or choose from a range of production-ready CV applications, like PPE detection, retail queue length, or crowd counting, from AWS and third-party developers.
Fast development in a familiar programming environment
AWS Panorama integrates seamlessly with familiar AWS Services and tools, such as Amazon SageMaker, AWS Lambda, and Amazon CloudWatch, enabling faster development.
Turn your existing onsite cameras into powerful edge devices with the AWS Panorama Appliance.
The AWS Panorama Appliance is easy to set up
Step 1: Unbox
Say hello to AWS Panorama Appliance!
Step 2: Plug in and detect devices
Log in to your AWS account, and install one or more AWS Panorama Appliance devices on the same network as your on-premises cameras. Provision your AWS Panorama Appliance for connection to the AWS Cloud and for automatic discovery of network cameras that support the ONVIF standard.
Step 3: Run CV on camera streams
You can use your own custom CV applications on the Appliance, or download third party CV applications for use cases such as retail analytics, license plate recognition, and detecting faults in an assembly line. The inference results can be displayed on a monitor, or sent through MQTT messaging to a variety of local or cloud-based endpoints or systems.
The AWS Panorama Appliance has one HDMI port for connecting to a video monitor to see inference output, and two GigE Ethernet ports to provide redundancy, to connect to two subnets, or for load balancing. The device is about a half rack unit wide, meaning two units can be placed side by side on a standard rack shelf on a server rack and fastened to the rack using the included screws.
The AWS Panorama Appliance is ruggedized and IP62 rated (i.e. dust proof and water resistant), making it suitable for operating in harsh environmental conditions.
The AWS Panorama Appliance will be available soon. Until then, get started now building and testing your applications with the AWS Panorama Appliance Developer Kit, by signing up for the preview here.
