Intelligent video processor

29 April 2009 DSP, Micros & Memory

The TMS320DM365 from Texas Instruments aims to provide designers with the means to deliver pixel-perfect images in their digital video designs without concerns for video format support, network bandwidth or system storage capacity limitations. Based on DaVinci technology, the digital media processor includes production-qualified H.264, MPEG-4, MPEG-2, MJPEG and VC1 codecs, an integrated image signal processing (ISP) solution for intelligent video processing capabilities and a suite of onboard peripherals.

Video designers of media playback and camera-driven applications, such as video doorbells and portable media players, can expand their product portfolio on one platform with the ability to select the right HD video codec for multiple product designs (1080p MPEG-4 at 24 fps or 720p H.264 and MPEG-4 at 30 fps). The DM365 is optimised for video security applications by supporting 1080p H.264 at 10 fps to provide high-quality video with greater compression efficiency. As a result, developers attain increased video storage without straining network bandwidth.

By having a built-in ISP with capabilities including face detection, developers can focus on differentiating their products with unique smart video features, such as enabling intelligent digital signage to detect its viewers and display relevant advertising or video doorbells to instantly recognise family members and automatically unlock the door.

The device’s ARM926EJ-STM core delivers up to 300 MHz while offloading the video encode/decode functions to the integrated HD video accelerators. Integrated peripherals include EMAC, USB 2.0 Phy, 16-bit DDR2, voice codecs, realtime clock and three 10-bit DACs.
