Image Processors – Milbeaut®

Milbeaut® is Socionext’s generic name for a range of image processing products intended for use across the entire application spectrum from high-end digital SLRs, through smartphones to industrial applications, such as security and surveillance. The product range is already in its 8th generation and will continue to evolve to stay ahead of the market. Our image processing technology is aimed at the highest possible quality and supports a wide range of software platforms, including Android™.

roadmapSince its introduction in 2000, Socionext’s Milbeaut® series has been adopted in a wide variety of digital imaging systems, ranging from single-lens reflex, compact and smart phone cameras. With its specialist camera technology knowledge, Milbeaut®, now focusses on the video centric and digital imaging market. A market which includes Drones, Action Cameras, Unique Multi Array Cameras, as well as the mobile or DSC markets.

 

 

digitalIn the video centric imaging market, currently, image resolution is required to be much higher quality, for example from Full HD to 4K resolution and frame rate also become from 30fps to 60fps. In order to process such high resolution and frame rate, a very sophisticated image pipe line is required with low power architecture. Moreover, the market requires products which are unique, such as supporting multi-streaming input from several sensors simultaneously to make stereoscopic images for VR. To cater for this sector, Socionext has developed a new generation of powerful Image Signal Processors for video centric imaging.

4-Camera Stitching

It’s possible to stitch the video captured from at most 4 cameras (Max:4K 30fps). When using a fish-eye lens, it’s possible to capture a video by the wider field angle by correcting the distortion in real time.SC2000

Slow Motion (Full HD 240fps video)

High frame rate video capture is possible. The captured video can be enjoyed as slow motion video using an application that can change the playback frame rate.
