Ambarella introduced the A7 IP Camera SoC for video surveillance applications. The Ambarella A7 features an ARM CPU, multi-streaming 1080p60 H.264 encoder, up to 500 MHz pixel capture rate (equivalent to 8 Megapixels at 60 frames per second), and power consumption of less than 1.5 Watts. The chip’s 3D motion compensated noise reduction eliminates the motion smearing and ghosting artifacts that are commonly associated with motion adaptive 3D filtering. The Ambarella A7 IP Camera SoC is sampling now.
Ambarella introduced the A7 system-on-chip (SoC) for advanced hybrid still and video cameras. The A7 delivers features 528-MHz ARM11 CPU, full HD 1080p60 or 4Mp30 H.264 video recording, high-speed 500Mpixels/second capture capability, smooth slow-motion replay, high dynamic range (HDR) processing, image stabilization, both DIS and EIS, and rolling shutter correction for CMOS sensors. The A7 can simultaneously encode a full HD stream while encoding a second stream for upload to the Internet or for streaming over WiFi. The Ambarella A7 SoC and hybrid camera reference design kit and SDK are available now.
