The future of AI-inspired, feature-rich smart cameras is here. Combining powerful image processing and AI with machine learning, our camera solutions are designed to help you create a wide variety of intelligent IoT devices across consumer and enterprise applications, including home security, enterprise security, 360 cameras, portable cameras, wearable devices, dash cams, smart displays, and more.

Purpose-built for intelligent IoT devices.

It takes the most advanced technology to accelerate product development—while reducing costs—so you can stay ahead of user demands and maintain a competitive edge. Qualcomm® Vision Intelligence Platforms are purpose built for the unique requirements of the IoT and optimized in application-specific configurations for today’s smart camera and video solutions.

 

Our flexible, innovative hardware and software platforms are engineered to deliver a superior integration of audio, high-quality capture, cutting-edge connectivity, security, and exceptional power efficiency so you can create connected, intelligent IoT devices for consumer and enterprise use—all while enabling you to reduce costs by saving on the BOM.

On-device machine learning

Utilize on-device machine learning and support for neural networks to perform video analytics, such as object detection, facial detection and recognition, multi-object tracking, and object classification.

Enhanced camera features

Build cameras that support dual ISPs, capture, playback, and stream premium 4K High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), support for staggered HDR, Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS), low light noise reduction, dual-microphones, and machine learning applications.

Low power

Effectively manage data and increase battery life with our advanced, dual image signal processors (ISPs) and optimized hardware and software platforms.

Reduced bandwidth and costs

Data processed at the edge means lower network bandwidth requirements and cloud storage costs for customers using cloud-based only security services.

Heterogeneous computing

Deliver image processing and AI applications with optimum performance and low energy consumption using our system-on-a-chip (SoC) solutions with customized CPUs, GPUs, and DSP processing engines.

Camera-based analytics

Move users from expensive, server-based video analytics in the cloud to more reliable and efficient camera-based analytics on the edge.

Virtually seamless connectivity

Effortlessly connect camera products using our 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth connectivity solutions.

Vision Intelligence Platforms
