Image processor enables high-speed processing of image data

An image processing IC has been introduced by Socionext, the SC2000, which is designed for drones and action cameras. The SC2000 is a new product from the M10V series, an eighth-generation version of Socionext’s Milbeaut Image Processors. It features the latest improvement in Socionext's proprietary Milbeaut image processing algorithm and achieves the optimum combination of high performance and low power consumption at the same time.

Since its first release in 2000, the Milbeaut series of image processors has established a track record in a broad range of applications from digital SLR cameras to smartphones, as well as industrial equipment. In recent years, video shooting using drones or action cameras has become more popular, and requirements for higher definition and video image quality are growing rapidly. High-speed processing of increased image data at low power is now an essential for these applications.

The new SC2000 has been developed to meet the challenge by incorporating the latest improvement in Socionext's proprietary Milbeaut image processing algorithm. Equipped with a digital signal processor optimised for computer vision, it also features advanced functionalities such as 360° real-time panorama stitching with four cameras, image stabilisation without mechanical gimbals, and rolling shutter correction.

The image processing rate is 1.2 gigapixels per second, three times faster than the company's previous processor, while the power consumption is as low as 1.7W in typical operating conditions.

Socionext will continue on its evolution and growth of the Milbeaut processors to provide solutions for various camera and imaging applications.
