Delivering an integrated intelligent video processing platform for video surveillance, Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) and MangoDSP Inc. announced recently the availability of the Mango IVS (Intelligent Video Server) running on TI's digital media processor powers Axis video products" target=_blank>tms320dm642 digital media processor (DSP).

With this offering, said the press release, TI and MangoDSP afford video designers a development solution capable of running one to four streams of video combined with video analytics from ObjectVideo, giving customers a low-cost solution when developing video security applications.

The Mango IVS, based on the Raven board family, allows integrators and security OEMs to build feature-rich video surveillance systems by combining many cutting edge technologies onto one compact programmable device. Utilizing the advanced video processing capabilities of the DM642 DSP, the Mango IVS combines video and audio compression and streaming with ObjectVideo OnBoard, ObjectVideo's intelligent video software optimized for operation with TI's DSP-based digital media processors. With this solution, the video, audio and networking functions have been combined on a single DSP, creating a cost effective embedded platform for video surveillance products, added TI.

"This video server solution enables security system developers a high performance, comprehensive product that can be used to convert an ordinary analog camera to an intelligent digital IP surveillance camera which provides remote viewing capability and video content analysis options," said Yvonne Cager, video surveillance business manager at TI.

Based on the DM642 digital media processor, the Mango IVS software runs on Mango's entire line of Raven video processing boards supporting one, four and eight channel solutions. The IVS can perform multiple video surveillance tasks such as full resolution, 720 x 480 video acquisition, 16-bit audio acquisition, MPEG4 or H.264 baseline video compression, and JPEG compression for low bitrate networks. Raven boards feature a small form factor, power consumption as low as 5W, and a ruggedized build suitable for mobile and field solutions.

Joel Rotem, director of technical sales at MangoDSP, added, "The high performance of the DM642 DSP running up to 720MHz has allowed us to combine multiple video surveillance technologies such as full resolution video compression with video analytics on the same DSP. This technology allows us to replace the use of a PC server with a compact, rugged cost-effective solution."
