New TI DaVinci™ Video Processors Bring "true-to-life" Image Quality And Unparalleled Performance In Low-light Surveillance Conditions

Stocks in this article: TXN





BEIJING, Dec. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) unveiled its newest DaVinci™ video processors, underscoring the company's commitment to innovations that help make our world safer. The DaVinci™ DM385 and DM8107 video processors, announced at the China Public Security Expo (CPSE), offer customers quality video solutions through the use of exceptional low-light technology and high-efficiency compression. With TI's scalable DaVinci portfolio, developers can find an optimized solution to get to market quickly using one of the industry's highest performance video processor platforms for "true-to-life" image quality.   



"In today's society, it's vital that security cameras are equipped with first-class technology," said Yangzhong Hu, CEO, Hikvision. "With TI's DaVinci product offerings, Hikvision is able to tailor solutions to meet our customers' needs whether they are looking for superb low-light performance or high video efficiency. TI's DM385 noise filter technology enables us to achieve best-in-class video quality at half the light that competing technologies require."



Achieve quality video in low light conditionsThe DM385 video processor delivers superior low-light performance, which is especially useful for poorly lit environments, such as a parking garage or the doorway of a building where shadows are present. This level of performance is achieved by the video processor's ability to compress a four megapixel video stream with either the H.264 or the SVC-T high-profile codecs. Also integrated into the DM385 is 3D noise filtering and wide dynamic range (WDR) processing.  These two features combined help create the security industry's best-in-class low-light technology.

TI offers video security manufacturers the ability to differentiate their products with flexible features, such as:

  • 4Kx2K or higher resolution video
  • Simultaneous multi-profile (base/main/high) compression
  • Image signal processing technology like face detection, video stabilization and lens distortion correction

"TI's DaVinci video processors have long been providing crisp, clear image quality for IP cameras," said Jason Jacob, video security business manager, TI. "For example, when a security camera is placed in a dark parking garage, the camera picks up grainy images from the scene, making it difficult to see a clear picture, such as a license plate or a person's face. A DM385 IP-based camera would be able to produce a more distinct image and better help authorities solve a crime." 

Also unveiled at CPSE is the new DaVinci DM385 IP-based camera reference design, which empowers customers to quickly deliver new cameras to the marketplace while taking advantage of TI's sensor module library.  The sensor module library enables turnkey solutions with more than eight of the most popular sensors.
