Apical, a leading provider of imaging technology for cameras and displays, announces that its ISP core is integrated into the latest surveillance camera processors by Hisilicon, a subsidiary of Huawei, Inc.
Hisilicon's Hi3516 is a System-on-Chip (SoC) device combining a powerful ARM core, a video encoder subsystem and an imaging subsystem based on Apical's latest-generation Image Signal Processor (ISP) core. The Hi3516 delivers full HD video at 30fps and supports sensors up to 16 Megapixel resolution.
Apical's ISP cores are unique in that they combine high-performance image processing at low power with native support of high dynamic range (HDR) capture technology. This combination addresses the central requirements of the emerging surveillance IP camera market more effectively than the approaches adopted by other manufacturers.
Says Michael Tusch, CEO of Apical: "We're very pleased that Hisilicon selected our technology as the basis for the Hi3516 imaging subsystem. Apical ISPs of course leverage our industry-leading high dynamic range technology but I am equally satisfied that we have been able to combine this with state-of-the-art noise reduction, color management and other key elements to obtain the best possible images under the widest range of conditions, from high contrast to low light."
Says Mr Yangfengguo, Director of Hisilicon surveillance PL: "In designing our new generation of surveillance camera processors, we recognized that the ISP is one of the most important parts of the system. We like working with Apical because they aim to deliver the best technology in the market and are ready to work closely with us to achieve the best possible results for our customers."
