💡 This article highlights the latest major release in DeepStream 6 and is intended to overview its new features briefly. In addition, we have previously published technical tutorials on how to use DeepStream and its Python bindings. We encourage you to explore our technical articles for more information on DeepStream.

NVIDIA introduced DeepStream SDK in May 2017 and has since been actively developing it with new features and capabilities. Over the past few years, the company has released multiple new versions of DeepStream, each with more advanced capabilities than the last. This rapid development has made DeepStream an increasingly powerful tool for developers and businesses alike.

Since our previous series of articles on NVIDIA DeepStream in the past year (2022), DeepStream has undergone some exciting changes by adding new features and enhancements to this software development kit (SDK). There are two significant upgrades that stand out in DeepStream SDK’s recent development (6.0 version). One is the extensive library for object tracking, which allows for more precise tracking of objects in real-time. The other is the Graph Composer GUI application, which provides an intuitive and user-friendly graphic interface for creating AI application pipelines. These improvements make DeepStream even more powerful and accessible to developers who want to create cutting-edge AI applications. Now, it’s time to delve into the specifics.

Upgraded Object Tracking

Object tracking is a crucial aspect of computer vision and is gaining significance in various industries such as surveillance, retail, healthcare, and automotive, among others. With the latest DeepStream object tracking library, developers can easily integrate tracking into their applications, reducing both development time and costs. The library supports multiple tracking algorithms and provides robust tracking capabilities, such as appearance modeling, re-identification, and multi-object tracking. These features make it easier for developers to build sophisticated AI applications with efficient object tracking capabilities.

Introducing Graph Composer GUI

The Graph Composer GUI is another significant enhancement to the DeepStream SDK. This application enables developers to create complex AI application pipelines through a drag-and-drop interface without the need for advanced programming skills. This graphical interface significantly reduces application development’s complexity, thus reducing time to market. The Graph Composer GUI also offers an extensive library of pre-built components, making it easy to create complex pipelines for different use cases.

Overall, the new features and enhancements in the NVIDIA DeepStream SDK demonstrate the company’s commitment to making AI application development more accessible and efficient. The addition of the object tracking library and Graph Composer GUI make it easier for developers to build applications that leverage the power of AI and deep learning. With the continued growth of AI and computer vision, Nvidia DeepStream is well-positioned to help developers create innovative solutions for a wide range of industries.
