High-Performance Deep Learning

OpenVINO Runtime automatically optimizes deep learning pipelines using aggressive graph fusion, memory reuse, load balancing, and inference parallelism across CPU, GPU, and more. You can integrate and offload to accelerators additional operations for pre- and post-processing to reduce end-to-end latency and improve throughput.

Model Quantization and Compression

Boost your model’s speed even further with quantization and other state-of-the-art compression techniques available in OpenVINO’s Post-Training Optimization Tool and Neural Network Compression Framework. These techniques also reduce your model size and memory requirements, allowing it to be deployed on resource-constrained edge hardware.

Local Inferencing & Model Serving

You can either link directly with OpenVINO Runtime to run inference locally or use OpenVINO Model Serving to serve model inference from separate server or within Kubernetes environment

Improved Application Portability

Write an application once, deploy it anywhere, achieving maximum performance from hardware. Automatic device discovery allows for superior deployment flexibility. OpenVINO Runtime supports Linux, Windows and MacOS and provides Python, C++ and C API. Use your preferred language and OS.

Minimal External Dependencies

Designed with minimal external dependencies reduces the application footprint, simplifying installation and dependency management. Popular package managers enable application dependencies to be easily installed and upgraded. Custom compilation for your specific model(s) further reduces final binary size.

Enhanced App Start-Up Time

In applications where fast start-up is required, OpenVINO significantly reduces first-inference latency by using the CPU for initial inference and then switching to another device once the model has been compiled and loaded to memory. Compiled models are cached improving start-up time even more.

Supported Devices

OpenVINO is supported on a wide range of hardware platforms.

Visit the Supported Devices page for a full list of OpenVINO-compatible platforms.

Check the Performance Benchmarks page to see how fast OpenVINO runs popular models on a variety of processors. OpenVINO supports deployment on Windows, Linux, and macOS.
