Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) announced the DMVA1 SoC. With DMVA1, engineers can deploy smart analytics functions such as people counting, trip zone, intelligent motion detection, camera tamper detection and streaming metadata. By coupling the vision co-processor with smart analytics all on a single chip, designers can reduce the cost of video analytics-enabled IP cameras by an order of magnitude. The DMVA1 video security camera SoC will begin sampling in the second quarter to early adopter video security customers.
The PNX5130, from NXP Semiconductors, a video co-processor for enabling 3DTV, frame-rate conversion (FRC), and local backlight dimming in a single chip. The PNX5130 eliminates the need for external FPGA devices to support 3DTV. The PNX5130 enables conversion of all popular 3DTV formats to both line and frame interleaved displays, and is designed for maximum flexibility to support emerging 3DTV standards. Engineering samples of the PNX5130 are available immediately. The final software release will be available in Q1 2010.
