DeepStream SDK 6.1

Download DeepStream 6.1 here.

DeepStream 6.1 Highlights:

  • Graph Composer UI has a new look and feel (extension type icons, extension metadata search, graph auto-layout, better subgraph UI, and other ease-of-use updates)
  • (Alpha) Graph Composer adds Windows 10 support (with remote execution only)
  • Support for RealSense 400 Series stereo cameras.
  • New post-processing plugin makes it easier to use custom models.
  • Support for NMOS (Networked Media Open Specifications). AI workloads can now be easily integrated with IP-based infrastructures.
  • Integration with NVIDIA Rivermax SDK. Now supports reception and transmission for compressed and uncompressed streams.
  • Support for Unified Communication - X Framework (UCX)/RDMA for data transmission across distributed DeepStream pipelines and nodes (x86/dGPU only).
  • New metadata serialization/deserialization plugins; allows metadata to be embedded within and extracted from encoded video streams (x86/dGPU only).
  • Gst-nvstreammux (new) plugin: Adds audio support and better tuning control enhancements for video conferencing
  • Jetson Tesla GPUs(x86)

    Product Advisory

    To ensure compatibility with TensorRT versions (as shown in the table on the top of the page), users planning to use models developed with TAO Toolkit (formerly TLT) 3.0-21.08 or earlier MUST re-generate the INT8 calibration cache before using them with DeepStream 6.0 or 6.1.

    Those who are using models and the INT8 calibration cache from previous versions of TensorRT will also need to re-generate the cache.

    You can find details regarding regenerating the cache in the Readme First section of the documentation.

    For new DeepStream developers or those not reusing old models, this is NOT an issue.

    Ethical AI

    NVIDIA’s platforms and application frameworks enable developers to build a wide array of AI applications. Consider potential algorithmic bias when choosing or creating the models being deployed. Work with the model’s developer to ensure that it meets the requirements for the relevant industry and use case; that the necessary instruction and documentation are provided to understand error rates, confidence intervals, and results; and that the model is being used under the conditions and in the manner intended.
