Texas Instruments Inc. and ObjectVideo have a response to the growing need to assist security camera system designers in improving image quality and adding intelligence while minding overall system costs. The companies are bringing to market an optimized IP network video camera reference design with high-definition (HD) image quality and ObjectVideo's award-winning intelligent analytics technology.

The DM355 Intelligent IP network camera reference design is the result of close collaboration between TI, ObjectVideo, Zero One Technology (ZOT), Aptina Imaging (a division of Micron) and Appro Photoelectron Inc. The reference design is based on the DM355IPNC-MT5IP security camera reference design that TI and Aptina Imaging introduced in March.

The new DM355 Intelligent IP network camera reference design builds on the existing solution, which includes TI's DaVinci TMS320DM355 digital media processor and Aptina's 5Mpixel HD security image sensor, with the addition of a video content analytics (VCA) daughter board. This board implements an embedded solution running ObjectVideo intelligent video analytics software on TI's DaVinci TMS320DM6435 digital media processor. The camera delivers high-quality HD images, producing a field of view of 1280 x 720 pixels, whereas traditional surveillance systems typically use two D1 cameras each seeing 480 x 720 pixels to capture the same scene (over 2.5 times the resolution as a standard camera). The reference design also provides simple monitoring and notification of security events through a Web browser and enables differentiation via royalty-free Linux IPNC application source code and schematics.

Sample units will be available in early Q4 for $995.
