The MathWorks, a developer of technical computing software, recently unveiled its new video and image processing blockset. The new product allows engineers to rapidly build models and verify designs within the Simulink environment.

The image and processing blockset has a customizable framework for designing, simulating, implementing and verifying video and image processing algorithms and systems. Its library includes 2D filters, conversion, geometric transformations, morphological operations and transforms for rapid algorithm and system specification development.

The blockset enables engineers to use model-based design for embedded systems development that increases user productivity and faster time-to-market. "The new video and image blockset eliminates many of the work flow pains that imaging designers are experiencing," said Charles Poynton, a noted digital video processing author and consultant.

"We are working on real-time image processing with TI DSPs as the target processors for a retinal prosthesis project," shared Dr. James Weiland of the Doheny Eye Institute at the University of Southern California. "The video and image processing blockset makes the task of creating designs and working prototypes much simpler," he added.

Using the new blockset, engineers can now simulate and automatically generate floating- and fix-point C code, easily migrating from floating- to fixed-point data types within the same model. The video and image processing blockset accelerates the design stage so engineers can focus on developing their ideas instead of debugging the code.

MathWorks' new product is available for Microsoft Windows, Unix/Linux and Macintosh platforms.
