Texas Instruments’ Video Processor Performs Smart Analytics


Texas Instruments (TI) has introduced the DaVinci DMVA2 video processor, a megapixel IP camera system-on-chip (SoC) equipped with smart analytics.

Video surveillance and other security applications can make use of integrated smart analytics that run on TI’s first generation vision co-processor incorporated on the DMVA2 SoC. People counting, trip zone, intelligent motion detection, camera tamper detection and streaming metadata analytics are all possible while streaming up to 1080p resolution, according to the company.

Previously, the company had launched the DMVA1 video processor that supports resolution up to 720p. The DMVA2 SoC offers three times the video performance over the earlier version, according to the company.

The DMVA2 is both pin and software compatible with the DMVA1, DM365 and DM368 DaVinci video processors. In addition to the chip itself, customers can accelerate their time-to-market with a complete IP camera reference design and free Linux IP camera application software with source code.

Among other attributes, TI says the new chip provides support for H.264 in high, main or base profiles 720p at 30 fps or 1080p at 15 fps, plus secondary CIF stream. Multicodec support (MPEG-4, MPEG-2 MJPEG and VC1) enables up to two-megapixel IP camera designs.
