DeepStream SDK

NVIDIA DeepStream for Tesla is an SDK for building deep learning-based scalable intelligent video analytics (IVA) applications for smart cities and hyperscale data centers. It brings together NVIDIA TensorRT optimizer and runtime engines for inference, Video Codec SDK for transcode, pre-processing, and data curation APIs to tap into the power of Tesla GPUs. On Tesla P4 GPUs, for example, you can simultaneously decode and analyze up to 30 HD video streams in real time.


The Most Advanced AI Inference Platform

Tesla T4 powered by NVIDIA Turing Tensor Cores delivers breakthrough performance for deep learning training in FP32, FP16, INT8, and INT4 precisions for inference. With 130 TeraOPS (TOPS) of INT8 and 260TOPS of INT4, T4 has the world’s highest inference efficiency, up to 40X more compared to CPUs. Tesla T4 can analyze up to 39 simultaneous HD video streams in real time using dedicated hardware-accelerated video transcode engines. Developers can offer new levels of smart, innovative functionality using inference that facilitate video search and other video-related services. And bringing all this performance in just 70 watts (W) makes Tesla T4 the ideal inference solution for scale-out servers at the edge.
