Texas Instruments has expanded its product line for video security IP cameras and recording systems with the releases of the DaVinci DM385 and DM8107 video processors. The chips feature low-light technology which enables cameras to capture crisp footage even if situated in very dark locations such as a parking garage or the doorway of a building where shadows are present.

This level of performance is achieved by the video processors' ability to compress a four megapixel video stream with either the H.264 or the SVC-T high-profile codecs. Also integrated into the DM385 is 3D noise filtering and wide dynamic range (WDR) processing, 4Kx2K or higher resolution video and image signal processing technology like face detection, video stabilisation and lens distortion correction.

The DM8107 video compression engine can achieve more than 200 per cent better compression efficiency to market standard. With this compression efficiency, half the storage is required to save data and half the bandwidth is needed to transfer the data without spoiling the quality of the image, which is essential when putting a video security system in place.

Additionally, the video processor gives customers the option of low-cost, low-power turnkey CIF/D1/960H DVR or a multi-channel 1080P NVR reference design with Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF) and ready-to-use video analytics, allowing quicker time to market.

Samples of TI's DaVinci DM385 and DM8107 are available now.
