by Akshay Bhat

UI Screenshot

Deep Video Analytics is a platform for indexing and extracting information from videos and images. With latest version of docker installed correctly, you can run Deep Video Analytics in minutes locally (even without a GPU) using a single command.

For installation instructions & demo please visit




We provide instructions for developing, testing and deploying DVA.

  1. deploy/compose/dev contains docker-compose files for interactively developing DVA by using host server directory mapped as a volume.

  2. deploy/compose/test contains docker-compose files for testing cloud filesystem (s3, gcs) support.

  3. deploy/compose/cpu contains docker-compose files for non-GPU single machine deployments on Linode, AWS, GCP etc.

  4. deploy/compose/gpu contains docker-compose files for GPU single machine deployments on GCP, AWS etc.

  5. deploy/kube contains files used for launching DVA in a scalable GKE + GCS setup, with and without GPUs.

Code organization

  • /client : Python client using DVA REST API
  • /configs : ngnix config + defining models + processing pipelines (can be replaced by mounting a volume)
  • /deploy : Dockerfiles + Instructions for development, single machine deployment and scalable deployment with Kubernetes
  • /docs : Documentation, tutorial and experiments
  • /tests : Files required for testing
  • /repos : Code copied from third party repos, e.g. Yahoo LOPQ, TF-CTPN etc.
  • /server : dvalib + django server contains contains bulk of the code for UI, App and models.
  • /logs : Empty dir for storing logs
