iDS NXT ocean






The iDS NXT Ocean is an all-in-one solution that provides you with everything you need to create your own AI inference camera. The iDS NXT ocean allows you to focus on your application without having to worry about the technicalities of AI. With no pre-defined rules, it lets you apply knowledge acquired through deep learning to new data.

iDS NXT Ocean simplifies deep learning usage and with the help of the IDS NXT Lighthouse Cloud software, users without AI expertise can work with images to train individual neural networks.

iDS NXT inference cameras can apply their "knowledge" acquired through deep learning to new data. With a special AI core, neural networks in the iDS NXT are hardware-accelerated and run directly on the camera – enabling inference times of just a few milliseconds.

The iDS NXT offers familiar features for easy integration: C-mount for lenses, robust housing, GigE network connection with RJ45, or M12 connectors, RS232 interface and REST web interface. The iDS NXT fully-fledged industrial cameras are available with different sensors and protection classes.


Typical industrial cameras can be used to complete tasks which rely on identification of unique object characteristics. This requires a PC connected, a programmer with the relevant expertise in coding and software maintenance to create image processing software with pre-determined rules. This approach an present issues that are tricky, time consuming and extremely expensive.



So, Why choose the iDS NXT Ocean before typical industrial cameras?  
  Cost Efficiency  

Simplicity of use




Typically programming rules-based software is time consuming and requires a professional with the relevant expertise and so is typically time consuming and expensive. However, with the iDS NXT Ocean, tasks relying on identification of unique characteristic's is simply a matter of training a neural network and requires little expertise. Simplifying your task saves you time and money.



With all the components needed to create train and run a neural network, the AI ore enables interference tasks to be implemented directly on cameras with no acompanying comouter hardware or software.










  Time Efficiency  

With the iDS NXT Lighthouse system all customer data is stored in highly secure German servers. By using the Amazon Web Server cloud, iDS customers benefit from a data centre and network architecture specifically designed to meet the highest standards of data protection and security. While being highly secure, the AWS infrastructure provides sufficient power and server space to complete the training process of a neural network very efficiently and quickly.


Tasks which use rule-based identification of unique object characteristics requires a connected PC, image processing software with pre-determined rules, plus a programmer with the relevant expertise in coding and software maintenance. This can involve complex programming. Thus, extremely time consuming. With the iDS NXT ocean, all the components you need to train and run neural networks are bundled into one easy to use package.







Ease and flexibility for a wide variety of quality assurance applications


With the IDS NXT ocean, training and ultimately running neural networks is simple. You know your application, and with the iDS NXT Lighthouse system, you can easily upload images so you can easily implement rules to make your iDS system highly accurate and time efficient.

What it includes?  

iDS Rio camera with
1.6 MP
Sony colour sensor


iDS NXT Rio is a fully-fledged standard industrial camera that can execute neural networks with hardware acceleration giving inference times of a few milliseconds thanks to the integrated, specially developed AI core ("deep ocean core"). Thanks to features such as C-Mount, GigE network connection with RJ45 connector, a serial RS232 interface and REST web interface, the model is ideally suited for use in industrial environments.

With the Sony global shutter CMOS sensor the camera is suitable for customers with high demands on image quality, dynamic range and sensitivity. It provides a resolution of (px) at 3.45 µm pixel size. The iDS NXT rio GS29016 is available in monochrome or colour.


6 Month license for
iDS NXT Lighthouse


The iDS NXT Lighthouse Cloud software allows those without expertise in the area of artificial intelligence or camera programming to train an AI classifier with their own image data.
As a web application, the necessary means to create the neural network are immediately available, meaning you wont have to initially set up your own development environment.

Subsequently you can start on your own neural network straight away. Image processing can take place entirely or partially on the camera FPGA – this reduces bandwidth and computing load.
