Nvidia is making a big push into the security market, claiming more than 50 partners, investing heavily in industry events, positioning their GPUs as the workhorses of deep learning applications.
However, Nvidia offers multiple product platforms, including Tesla, Jetson, etc., based on different GPU architectures such as Pascal or Maxwell. It can be difficult to understand how these components are used in video surveillance systems (e.g., what to use in a camera vs server vs the cloud, etc.).
In this report, IPVM reviews Nvidia's products related to surveillance, including where the various Nvidia product lines are most applicable, how they compare to alternative products, and their limitations.
