Creation of system center for design of highly integrated microchips with 65-nanometer and finer technology norms; manufacturing of web cameras and intelligent network video surveillance cameras

ELVIS NeoTech is the domestic developer and manufacturer of high-technology, competitive solutions in the safety and business monitoring systems.

The Company created VIP-1 processor with 40 nanometer transistors for the first time in Russia. Computer vision and analytics systems using such processor can independently recognize and analyze any objects - people, animals, baggage, handwriting, cars. Areas of application: antiterrorist actions, safety of strategic transport communications, oil and gas pipelines (implemented in Transneft, Lukoil, Gazprom), electric power industry facilities (implemented in Rushydro OJSC) and communication, as well as calculation of number and monitoring of preferences of buyers in retail sector.

Areas of Application

  • Design and construction and installation companies for security systems
  • Video surveillance system manufacturers

Market

  • Solutions in safety and business monitoring systems

Competitive Advantages

  • Low production costs
  • Excellence of technical and consumer-oriented characteristics both of intermediary and final products in the world market
  • Conceptually new approaches in products solve a range of problems in target application segments and open new markets

The design center created within the frameworks of the project develops integrated microchips and places contracts for their production on the basis of fabless scheme. The innovative product line was created on the basis of new chips: video surveillance and video analytics systems with the artificial intelligence elements used in very different fields of economy.

End devices and video analytics (set of algorithms implementing artificial intelligence function inside the electronic devices) of ELVIS NeoTech are at the level of the best world analogs and sometimes exceed them. Main advantage of the Company’s cameras is ability of their video analytics algorithms to see and distinguish practically everything: people faces, car numbers, inflammation, perimeter crossing, count of people in cinema, public events and in stores. This feature makes the ELVIS NeoTech’s products of high-demand among companies of various fields.

One more outstanding feature of the project products is combination of “vision” and “intelligence” functions in one device, i.e. directly in the video camera where video stream is processed and required information is selected. This approach allows avoiding load on data transfer networks and does not require the use of large computation powers.
