    • ProcImage500-G3

    • High speed camera dedicated to real time embedded processing for images shot in high speed

      The ProcImage500-G3 is a smart camera with a high speed CMOS sensor, 505 fps in 1280 x 1024 pixel!
      Based on a motherboard including a Virtex5 FPGA, SRAM and, DDR2 memory, it allows to use results of high speed embedded image processing from videos shot in high speed on the fly.

      It is possible to process the images as fast as they are generated, this gives for instance at 505 fps full resolution, a processing time ≤ 2 ms.

      Image processing can be simple: inversion, binarization, convolution by matrix... or more complex: centroid, target tracking, compression, object recognition,...

      The implementation in the FPGA can be done using our services, or by the user (option) through VHDL development.
      These innovationswill give the opportunity to reduce the amount of data to be transmitted and also increase the processing speed without compromise.

  • IP - (Embedded image processing)

  • In smart camera mode, our cameras allow embedded image processing in real time. Image processsing can be divided into 3 categories:
    • Image Processing : image A → image B
    • Image Analysis : image A → data
    • Image understanding : image A → high level description output from images or data.

    The result, supplied in images or data; in each case either recorded to the camera storage memory or directly to the computer's hard disk.
    For Data, they can also be provided on the fly.
    Standard or optional IP depending on the camera type
