iDS NXT Ocean version 2.0
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. With no predefined rules it lets you apply knowledge to new data with Deep Learning.

iDS NXT Ocean simplifies Deep Learning with the help of the IDS NXT Lighthouse cloud software, for users with limited AI expertise who can now easily work with images to train individual neural networks it now offers both classification and object detection.

The iDS NXT inference camera can apply AI models developed with iDS NXT Lighthouse to new data. With a special AI core the iDS NXT Ocean camera is hardware-accelerated so that inference models can run directly on the device - enabling inference times of just a few milliseconds.

The iDS NXT Ocean industrial camera is available with different sensors and protection classes. It features C-mount, robust housing, GigE network connection with RJ45, or M12 connectors, RS232 interface and REST web interface.

New features provided in iDS NXT Ocean version 2.0:

- In addition to classification, you can now train neural networks for object detection.
- Use the advanced project configuration to select whether a data set is used for training, validation or testing.
- Accelerate and simplify the development of your training database with the improved project and data management.
- Read in images that have already been labelled.
- Easily create backups of your important data sets and training projects with the new import/export functionality.

So, why choose the iDS NXT ocean before typical industrial cameras?  
  Cost Efficiency  

Simplicity of use


With traditional programming techniques a well-qualified professional is required to develop rules for classification or object detection. This is time-consuming and expensive. With the iDS NXT Ocean, the task of developing models for classification and object detection is simpler, quicker and easier and requires far less expertise.

The iDS NXT Ocean package provides all the components needed to create train and run a neural network, it is easy-to-use and ready-to-go.




  Time Efficiency  

With the iDS NXT Lighthouse system all customer data is stored in highly secure servers using the Amazon Web Server cloud. iDS customers benefit from a data center 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.


With the iDS NXT Ocean, all the components you need to train and run neural networks are bundled into one easy and quick-to-use package.






Ease and flexibility for a wide variety of quality assurance applications


With the IDS NXT Ocean, training and running neural networks is simple and can be applied to a wide variety of applications. You only require images and the ability to label those images and you can apply this AI technology to almost any application that requires classification or object detection.
What the iDS NXT Ocean kit 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, this 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 1.6 MP 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.

The iDS NXT Ocean also includes:  

High quality 16 mm

Gigabit Ethernet


Camera power supply
with necessary adapters

Camera tripod

As an inference camera for AI based image processing:
- With self created neural networks (expert level)
- Networks created with IDS NXT lighthouse
+ Anomaly detection, surface analysis, defect detection, classification tasks
