AUCKLAND, New Zealand–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Teknique, the solutions provider for vision-enabled products, is
exhibiting at this month’s Embedded
Vision Summit with new integrated camera modules that help device
makers get their products to market faster. The company is demonstrating
two Ambarella-based SoMs (System on Modules) and offering engineering
and business advice to delegates at the Summit, being held May 20-23 in
Santa Clara, CA.
The Oclea range of ready-to-go SoMs from Teknique accelerate the design
process by allowing cameras to be integrated into a new system within
6-12 weeks – in contrast to a custom-camera approach which can take up
to 12 months.
At booth 613, Teknique will exhibit the Oclea SoMs and Evaluation Kits
with a number of demonstrations showcasing some of their advanced
features including hardware accelerated CNN processing, cloud
integration, video analytics, and easy-to-use Software Development Kits.
In addition to the technical demonstrations on the stand, Teknique
executives will share best practice in the business and technology
tracks, drawing on the company’s more than 15 years’ experience in
camera and vision development.
In the Business Insights Track, Teknique’s CEO and founder Ben
Bodley will describe using a systems approach to product
development from proof of concept validation through to scaling up
manufacturing in large volumes.
In the Enabling Technologies Track, Teknique’s Quality Assurance
Manager Ian Billing will demonstrate how developers using modular
components can quickly integrate a camera into a product and spend more
time focussing on user experience and less on details such as image
tuning and camera sensor drivers.
Teknique, which in April appointed Macnica Americas as its North
American distributor, is targeting Oclea SoMs at manufacturers wanting
to achieve more powerful image processing capability directly in the
camera. Because processing video ‘on the edge’ of the network requires
no external on-premise or cloud data processing, operating costs are
lowered, and the reduced latency is an advantage for products requiring
real-time decision making such as autonomous vehicles, industrial and
commercial automation and professional security.
“Bringing a vision system product to market using traditional processes
is costly and time-consuming but this is changing with the arrival of
ready-to-go SoMs,” says Ben Bodley, CEO, Teknique. “At the Embedded
Vision Summit we will show how the Oclea range embodies our more than 15
years development experience with off-the-shelf camera modules, allowing
customers to reduce the time and costs of integrating complex SoCs and
peripherals into their next product.”
Teknique is a member of the Embedded
Vision Alliance, a worldwide industry partnership that brings
together and supports technology providers who are enabling innovative
and practical applications for computer vision.
Teknique specializes in systems integration for camera and vision
solutions, using the Ambarella range of advanced imaging and computer
vision SoCs. Teknique’s deep manufacturing know-how and solutions-based
approach extends from ideation to finished product and support
Teknique produces the Oclea range of System-on-Module (SoMs), based on
Ambarella’s SoCs and supported by Teknique’s 15+ years’ experience in
vision enabled product technology. Oclea SoMs represent a faster way to
get to market, with reduced time and risk and features such as advanced
ISP functionality and CVFlow CNN acceleration.
To support its off-the-shelf and bespoke camera solutions, Teknique
offers Sensee.ai, an IoT video intelligent platform providing safe and
secure cloud and mobile connectivity, device management, video
streaming, and analytics functionality.
