NVIDIA Holoscan SDK
NVIDIA® Holoscan is a domain-agnostic AI computing platform that delivers the accelerated, full-stack infrastructure required for scalable, software-defined, and real-time processing of streaming data running at the edge or in the cloud.Join the Forum
Holoscan supports camera serial interface and front-end sensors for video capture, ultrasound research, data acquisition, and connection to legacy medical devices.
Use the NVIDIA Holoscan SDK’s data transfer latency tool to measure complete, end-to-end latency for video processing applications.
Reference AI Pipelines
Access AI reference pipelines for radar, high-energy light sources, endoscopy, ultrasound, and other streaming video applications.
Accelerate Sensor Data Processing
NVIDIA Holoscan includes optimized libraries for network connectivity, data processing, and AI, as well as examples to create and run low-latency data-streaming applications using either C++, Python, or Graph Composer. Using the SDK, developers can build pipelines for sensor data processing that meet latency requirements and scale from the data center to the edge.
NVIDIA Holoscan for Medical Devices provides domain-specific capabilities for medical device developers for the clinical edge. It allows companies in the medical device industry to explore new AI-powered capabilities, accelerate time to market, and lower development and maintenance costs for medical-grade devices.
