The DM365 / DM368 has a unique hardware resizer. The resizer can accepts a single video frame and performs two independent color space conversions and resizing operations at the same time. The resizer is part of the Image pipe (IPIPE) in the Video Processing Subsystem (VPSS) in the Video Processing Front End (VPFE) and the documentation for the resizer is contained in the VPFE documentation (sprufg8b).
These products are focused on video capture and playback applications which can range from IP Network Cameras to medical and industrial video capture / playback applications. The first product RidgeRun is introducing today is an Auto White Balance library - LibRRAEW. LibRRAEW allows camera sensor applications to have clear images and avoids lost of important information from different scene planes.
DM36x Image processor includes hardware for video stabilization, and TI provides a library for using it on the reference platforms they design (but not in a very generic way to be re-used outside them, since requires low-level access to the hardware and doesn't integrates well with the kernel). So being RidgeRun the GStreamer fans we are, we decided to enable support for it from GStreamer :) The way
RidgeRun announces professional support for Spectrum Digital DM8168 EVM, DM8168 Z3 RPS and Mistral DM8148 EVM, enabling support for RidgeRun SDK on these platforms, leveraging powerful capabilities for developing multimedia products thanks to GStreamer framework. RidgeRun SDK leverages Texas Instruments™ EZSDK framework and extends it providing RidgeRun's proven platform for embedded Linux products:
RidgeRun constantly sponsor student internships from Costa Rica Institute of Technologyto develop technologies for embedded systems. Michael Grüner is a EE senior student who did a very nice graduation project by putting together two BeagleBoard XM to create 3D anaglyph video. The systems works using GStreamer multimedia framework, so Michael had to develop some gstreamer elements to make it work:
