eInfochips’ IPNetCam is one of the world’s first camera reference designs with dual streaming with multiple codecs and ObjectVideo(R) OnBoard(TM) robust analytics on Texas Instruments’ DaVinci(TM) technology. The camera establishes new standards in network-supported security and video surveillance technology. The reference design is a ready-to-go solution enabling original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to build a range of intelligent IP surveillance cameras quickly and with low development costs.
IPNetCam incorporates a highly sensitive three-megapixel, 1/2-inch progressive scan CMOS sensor with electronic rolling shutter and global reset release. The IPNetCam leverages advanced video and image processing features offered by DaVinci technology. The camera supports three compression formats: JPEG, MPEG-4 and H.264, allowing users to choose the appropriate combination of encoding to match the environment and monitoring applications. The camera supports QCIF, CIF, VGA and D1 resolutions with 30 fps performance for all the compression formats. With the triple streaming feature, one JPEG and two MPEG- 4 images can be streamed simultaneously.
The camera utilizes ObjectVideo OnBoard, the industry-leading technology for video content analysis that allows rule-based object detection, classification, tracking and real-time alerting. Equipped with two sensor inputs and two alarm outputs, the camera can be used for triggering external devices for ObjectVideo alerts. SD memory card support allows pre- and post- event recording. The camera hosts a user-friendly GUI accessible through a browser, which allows remote viewing and camera configuration, including the creation and management of ObjectVideo OnBoard rules.
The smart IPNetCam camera kit is available for $4995. The design can be licensed with source code and schematics.
