TI announces low power, high speed, HD IP camera reference design
News Release from:
29 October 2009
Texas Instruments has announced a new Internet Protocol (IP) camera reference design that provides low power, high definition (HD) video processing for the video surveillance market. The DM368IPNC-MT5 IP camera reference design with H.264 main profile 1080p at 30 frames per second (fps) offers industry-leading compression in a full HD solution, with the complete camera utilizing only three Watts. Based on a new DaVinci video processor, the IP camera reference design provides 30 percent more host processing performance over the previous generation.
This overall performance boost allows the camera to support 720p at 60 fps for multiple video formats including H.264 and MPEG-4, as well as MJPEG at five Megapixels (Mp) at 15 fps. It also supports multi-streaming video processing at various frame rates (www.ti.com/1080p-ipcamrd-prprod).
Additionally, the IP camera reference design includes a complete Linux application software package to help customers differentiate their end camera. This application software package includes an Image Signal Processing (ISP) Tuning Tool 1.0, a hardware-accelerated AES encryption module and support for the Physical Security Interoperability Alliance standard (PSIA, www.psialliance.org) for easier adoption and deployment. When combined, this enables customers to quickly create cost-sensitive products with full HD video, such as IP cameras or IP modules for closed-circuit TV cameras, in greatly reduced development time.
