Socionext Develops New Milbeaut Processor for Security Camera Applications

Provides Optimum Image Processing Using Very Low Power

SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 30, 2017 /CNW/ -- Socionext today introduced the new SC2002, the latest addition to its lineup of the Milbeaut® family image signal processors. Samples of the new processor, which is targeted for security camera applications, are now available.

The new SC2002, Nicknamed "M11S", is designed to meet the needs of security cameras, which are becoming increasingly popular. Equipped with the ARM® Cortex-A9 Dual 600MHz CPU, it delivers the needed performance for today's security camera applications.

The new IC offers the latest functionalities for capturing high-quality images under low light conditions such as the 3DNR (Three-Dimensional Noise Reduction) and the WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) technology. The WDR synthesizes two images taken with different exposures and achieves the dynamic range of 120dB or better, which is essential when an image contains areas of different levels of light. The IC also features a high-performance DSP with built-in intelligence configured for a function-rich network camera system with video analysis capability. With its unparalleled performance and unique functionalities, the SC2002 provides solutions suitable for various security cameras applications, ranging from professional use to home security.

The SC2002 also comes with a built-in HEVC encoder which allows H.264-quality images to be transmitted at half the bit-rate. This reduces the number of video streams and required network bandwidth, enabling faster transfer of long video recordings to portable media like hard disk drives and SD memory cards. Utilizing the Socionext proprietary low-power design methodology, the IC achieves exceptional performance while consuming only 1.5W in typical operating conditions.

Socionext will demonstrate its high-quality image capturing capability at Computex Taipei, May 30 to June 3.
