Matisse onboard H.264 encoding for DaVinci technology

Texas Instruments : 13 May, 2008  (New Product)
Stabilised H.264 encoding for cameras using TI's DaVinci based processors
Human Monitoring (HM), a leading provider of advanced video and image processing solutions for embedded platforms and PCs, announces the introduction of a stabilised-H.264 main profile encoder solution with interlaced support for security applications based on Texas Instruments' (TI) DaVinci technology digital media processors.

HM's high quality Leonardo Video Stabiliser is now fully integrated with HM's Matisse H.264 encoder, supporting full frame rate, D1 resolution, IBP slices and progressive and interlaced (field frames) coding on TI's DaVinci processors, including the TMS320DM644x and TMS320DM643x devices, or any C64x+ core. The solution is XDM compliant for DaVinci digital media processors.

Existing DM644x and DM643x designs and applications can be easily enhanced and upgraded using HM's MP D1 H.264 solution (with or without stabilisation). HM's Leonardo Video Stabiliser solution supports ultra-wide jerkiness cancellation, scalable-range of jerkiness frequency, and configurable latency starting from a single field. Leonardo offers real time stabilisation while completing the cropped parts of the stabilised stream temporally, avoiding the need for up-scaling.

HM's Matisse H.264 MP encoder is based on the company's patent pending technologies of ultra-wide motion estimation differential quantisation strategy and accurate CBR/VBR rate-control algorithms.

HM's Matisse H.264 MP encoder and Leonardo video stabiliser will be demonstrated as separate and integrated solutions at IFSEC at TI Booth # 19132, in the Developer Network section.

'This solution offers the opportunity to enhance large installed base of video servers and IP-cameras, not only by shifting them from MPEG-4 to new industry standard of H.264, but also allowing the addition of integrated stabilisation to such platforms, using the existing DaVinci devices. Both the Matisse H.264 encoder and Leonardo Video Stabiliser are high-end video processing products and generate the highest quality achievable on a DSP platform. Stay tuned, as we are expanding the solution to support High Definition (1080p) on the DM6467, as well' said Ira Dvir, Vice President R&D, Human Monitoring. "We are excited about how the Matisse Video Encoder will assist our DM64xx processor customers to enhance their products with the main profile H.264 encoders. Texas Instruments is committed to helping solve our customers' application challenges and with this new video technology they do not need expensive stand-alone boxes. The integration of a stabiliser and an encoder on a single chip leverages the overall performance of the devices," said Philippe Marchay, EMEA Security Business Development Manager, Texas Instruments. "HM's Matisse turns H.264 encoding into an even more affordable feature, saving substantial costs for a single system by also offering it on the DM6437."

'Matisse H.264 encoder utilizes efficient algorithms to handle wide range motion estimation in C64+ cores. HM's quantization strategy produces refined processing of macro-blocks, generating superior subjective quality at lower bitrates. The ability to integrate between the two products eliminates performing the same functions twice, and removes jerkiness and interference before encoding process. All this translates into effective video processing and a significant cleaner image quality,' adds Dr Nitzan Rabinowitz, Human Monitoring, Chief Technology Officer.

Both Leonardo Video Stabilizer and Matisse H.264 MP Encoder as well as the integrated solution are available now from Human Monitoring.
