OpenVINO Toolkit - DL Streamer repository

Overview

This repository is a home to Deep Learning (DL) Streamer. DL Streamer is a streaming media analytics framework, based on GStreamer* multimedia framework, for creating complex media analytics pipelines. It ensures pipeline interoperability and provides optimized media, and inference operations using Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO Toolkit Inference Engine backend, across Intel® architecture - CPU, iGPU and Intel® Movidius VPU. DL Streamer prebuilt binaries can be installed with the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO Toolkit installer.

Here's the canonical video analytics pipeline consturctued using DL Streamer. It performs detection and classification operations on a video stream, using face detection and emotion classification deep learning models. The results of this pipeline are demoed in the above video clip:

gst-launch-1.0 filesrc location=cut.mp4 ! decodebin ! videoconvert ! gvadetect model=face-detection-adas-0001.xml ! gvaclassify model=emotions-recognition-retail-0003.xml model-proc=emotions-recognition-retail-0003.json ! gvawatermark ! xvimagesink sync=false

The complete solution leverages:

  • Open source GStreamer* framework for pipeline management
  • GStreamer* plugins for input and output such as media files and real-time streaming from camera or network
  • Video decode and encode plugins, either CPU optimized plugins or GPU-accelerated plugins based on VAAPI
  • Deep Learning models converted from training frameworks TensorFlow*, Caffe* etc. from Open Model Zoo And, the following elements in the DL Streamer repository:

In addition, the solution uses the following Deep Learning-specific elements, also available in this repository:

  • Inference plugins leveraging OpenVINO Toolkit for high-performance inference using deep learning models
  • Visualization of the inference results, with bounding boxes and labels of detected objects, on top of video stream

Please refer to Elements for the complete DL Streamer elements list.
