Brand PC and Ability partner to roll out edge AI cameras in Vietnam

Taipei, Taiwan

Ability Enterprise, a professional edge AI camera ODM/OEM provider in Taiwan, and Brand PC, a leading electronics distributor based in Hanoi, Vietnam, have entered into a partnership to introduce the latest edge AI cameras and solutions from Ability for various vertical market segments in Vietnam since early 2023.

Brand PC plans to roll out Ability’s full lineup of Intel-based edge AI camera and camera modules including the VS1NL70 AI-Vue 8MP ANPR bullet camera; the VS6NLB0 dome camera with embedded Intel Moviduis VPU and full support for Intel Distribution of Openvino Toolkit, Sony Starvis CMOS image sensor; and the VS12112 with the optional 4G LTE modem.

With the full support of Intel Distribution of Openvino Toolkit, these Intel-based camera platforms allow developers to quickly select a suitable AI model from the Public Model Zoo repository for immediate deployment, and later port their proprietary AI algorithm onto the Ability edge cameras for better deep neural network computing performance. This hybrid approach provides a faster development cycle for application developers and also reduces overall time to market.

As a result, Brand PC has been working with a number of image application specialists to develop AI-enabled software systems specifically for the vertical markets in Vietnam. In addition, Ability’s camera platforms have been retrofitted with more features and better customisation possibility. A number of functional modules like solar powered battery supply and 4G/LTE Wifi module are available to these camera platforms as an add-on optional module.

“Ability’s edge AI cameras represent the latest technology breakthrough in terms of enabling the traditional surveillance cameras with the most advanced AI features. These AI powered edge cameras are capable of performing highly complex image applications on its own such as smart traffic, smart retail, security and surveillance on public transportations and buildings, etc.”, said Jonny Wu, Senior Director of Ability Enterprise. “As edge cameras are finding their way into more applications, an easy and reliable management system of these remote IoT devices is also becoming more imminent and important”, he added. “We are very excited and delighted to be working with Brand PC for our edge AI cameras.
