Intel Movidius Targets Video Surveillance Market

By: Brian Karas, Published on Oct 25, 2016

The most commonly used chips in IP cameras come from Ambarella, Hisilicon or TI.

Now, Movidius, who Intel announced acquiring in September, is ramping up their video surveillance sales. In particular, they have announced a partnership with Hikvision.

However, the question is: Who is Movidius, what do they do and how do they compare to what video surveillance devices already use? In this report, we share findings from speaking with Movidius about what they aim to do.
