Nx at the Edge

Build intelligent Edge / IoT ARM powered camera, server, and video analytics hardware that runs the Nx Server application natively to create full edge intelligent video solutions.

Advantages of Nx at the Edge

Feature Rich
  • Full Nx Server capabilities
  • Server Hive Architecture
  • Automatic Failover / Redundancy
  • Device Health Monitoring (even locally)
  • Automatic Discovery of other Servers
  • Merge locally or Via Cloud
ARM Friendly
  • Lightweight and CPU-driven – leaves GPUs for analytics
  • Installation Packages for leading developer boards like NVIDIA Jetson
  • Can be adapted to run on virtually any modern ARM chipset
Flexible Architectures

Combine Nx Edge capabilities with traditional “Trucks” to build the most redundant, snappy VSaaS solution out there.

Open for Development
Same great Powered by Nx developer tools available in the Server interface.
  • Server API
  • Metadata SDK

Edge Applications are enabled by the Nx Server

  • The Nx Server application is a lightweight application designed to run on both high and low-power computing hardware.
    • Intel Xeon platforms
    • ARM SoCs
    • Same exact feature set
  • Prerequisite requirements to install Nx Server on an edge device very small – compute, storage, RAM.
  • Existing installation packages for development boards – including Raspberry Pi and NVIDIA Jetson hardware.
