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.
