VATICS keeps investing on advanced SoC process node, providing leading-edge SoC architecture design and implementation to achieve high performance and low power consumption.
Combining powerful ARM Cortex™ CPU and CEVA DSP for massive computation
Low power consumption enables the development of small form-factor and energy saving cameras
Smart HEVC Encode
VATICS Smart HEVC Encoder makes significant reduction of useless or unimportant data wherever possible and maintains high-quality video without abrupting the network bandwidth.
Featured with latest developments of Dynamic ROI, GOP, FPS and Noise Reduction for smartly detecting regions of interest especially the amount of motions in dynamic scenes; applying noise reduction with disparate strengths; and adjusting group of pictures and frame rate accordingly for achieving outstanding bit-rate saving without losing every important details
Smart HEVC Encoder achieves extremely low bit rates to save up to 60% on network bandwidth and local storage costs compared to H.264 Encoder in video surveillance applications
VATICS the 5th generation ISP is involved with the mainstream lens and sensor roadmaps to continue to pursue the fidelity of conversion of light captured by the sensor, so image and video can be recorded with perceptible details, authentic tonal layering, and lower noise.
"Color Consistent" technology dynamically compensates to reduce color discontinuous and intensity
"HDR" technology provides more discernible details in high-contrast scene and brings out ampler and accurate color presentation, making a more lifelike visual experience of the real world.
"Smart Edge Enhancement" technology improves the image blurriness (out of focus) locally due to slightly misaligned of lens and sensor
"Multi-Lens & Sensors ISP" technology compensates color and luminance deviations of video stitched and/or fused from sources of multiple lenses and sensors due to their production variations
Fisheye Dewarping, Stitching, Blending
VATICS 180°/360° multi-channel fisheye dewarping engine introduces an innovative way that incorporating a high-performance hardware-accelerated fisheye dewarpper, allowing real-time dewarping process for significant CPU loading saving, and flexible supporting geometry corrections for a diverse of fisheye/wide-angle lenses to provide industry-leading quality of panoramic video formation.
Supporting up to 4-channel video-ins
Algorithmic optimization for pixel/block-based transformations
Stitching and Blending
Feature based matching
Geometric model stitching
Compensate color bias for different sensors
Intelligent Video Analytics
VATICS provides intelligent video analytics on-device (esp. on edge-device) so that permitting end-customers to have greater privacy protection, data locality and lower latency of data accesses in response to tasks operated on device site. VATICS "AI On-Device " is NN-based design analyzing visual features in real time from live video, classified against a trained list of persons (esp. faces), pets, cars, and any objects of interest for target detections as well as recognition.
Seamless tailoring up integrations with internal ISP and dewarping engines for high accuracy of detection & recognition rate even using wide-angle/fisheye lenses
