using the NCS VPU for openCV offload

Hello, I would like to use the VPU for offloading my openCV code

here https://www.movidius.com/solutions/software-development-kit you mention that: "Over 180 kernel functions supported with similar functionality to OpenCV"

how can I use them with the Movidius™ Neural Compute Stick?

if I can not do that with the NCS, how can I get access to the https://www.movidius.com/solutions/software-development-kit ? there is no buy / order / contact etc link anywhere at the MDK / SDK page

Thanks
Ivan

    I want to add a little to your question:
    How much would the NCS be considered a development board for the Myriad™ 2 VPU?

  • Hi @vania,

    The Movidius Neural Compute Stick (NCS) relies on the NC SDK/API. This is simpler in comparison to the MDK, which as you mentioned contains over 180 kernel functions that provide OpenCV-like functionality. At this time the NC SDK/API doesn't contain functionality for offloading OpenCV functionality. Instead it provides the means to offload inferences for a compiled network.

    You can take a look at the API documentation that is attached to this post for more details:
    https://ncsforum.movidius.com/discussion/94/movidius-nc-sdk-1-07-06#latest

    If you would like more information on purchasing the MDK send me a private message on here with your contact information and I can have someone contact you with details.

    Hope that helps.

  • Hi @pkrush,

    The NCS shouldn't be considered a full blown development board for Myriad™ 2 VPU. Its intended to provide an easy introduction to what the technology can do and a relatively quick way to realize a hardware and software solution for a particular application.

    Thanks,

    Neal
