Description

Texas Instruments offers multiple highly optimized reference designs based on the DM36x, DM38x, DM812x, and DMVAx DaVinci™ video processors for the IP camera market to enable developers to speed through the design process as well as reducing overall bill of materials costs.

These reference designs:

  • Reduce development time by up 90%
  • Deliver higher quality video, up to 10 megapixel at reduced frame rate
  • Optimize electronic bill of materials
  • Empower customers to design sub $100 HD IP cameras

These solutions reduce development time by including:

  • Complete and optimized schematics
  • Gerber files
  • Free Linux application source code
  • Video Content Analysis (VCA) capability

 

Business Model

  1. Buy one IPCamera reference design kit from Appro Photoelectronics following one of the links below
  2. After purchase of reference design kit, ONVIF compliant IPCamera application software (in source and includes GUI), schematics, gerbers and BOM are available through Appro, free of any additional NRE or royalty due to TI
  3. First 8 hours of free support available through Appro

IP Camera Reference Design Vs DVSDK

Digital Video Software Development Kit (DVSDK) is a software development kit provided by TI which can be used for developing multimedia applications. It provides all the components required in developing multimedia applications and provides some demo applications. DVSDK runs on the DVEVM and is part of the software supplied with the EVM.

IP Camera Reference Design is an application developed to address IP Camera market. It has all the components which are optimized for use in the IP Camera application. IP Camera software runs on the BOM and form-factor optimized hardware specific for the IP Camera. IP Camera software is developed based on the DVSDK software components.

The table below summarizes the key differences between IP Camera and DVSDK application with respect to a IP Camera product.

Features / Components IP Camera Reference Design DVSDK / DVEVM
Codecs, Framework Components, Codec Engine Yes Yes
Linux kernel, drivers Yes Yes
Network stack (TCP/IP, RTP/RTSP, FTP, SMTP) for IP Camera application Full Partial
BOM Optimized and Form factor ready hardware Yes No
IP Camera application Yes No
Advanced IP Camera features (Video Stabilization, Video Noise Filter) Yes No
Basic Video Analytics (Face detection/recognition, Motion detection) Yes Partial (Face detection)
Advanced Video Analytics Supported with VA card plugin No
Auto Exposure and Auto White-balance Yes No
Lens distortion / shading correction Yes No
Image Tuning support Yes No
