In a bid to keep up with the increasing demand for quality network-based IP
video recording, NICE Systems has chosen Texas Instruments (News - Alert) (TI) for their TMS320DM6467 digital media processor.
NICE will use TI's processor, based on DaVinci technology, for its next-generation NiceVision Net edge devices.
The technology will be included as part of NICE's complete end-to-end solution for IP video surveillance.
DM6467, a digital signal processor (DSP)-based SoC that is "tuned for real time, multi-format high-definition video transcoding," is also programmable and includes video streaming and analytics to a central location as well as performs advanced encoding and compression
With the ability to program the processor, and its flexible design, it makes for an easy solution that customers can use to keep up with changing solutions in video codecs and to provide updates and new features to field-deployed units.
According to the company, the processor makes devices that are more intelligent and functional possible as the DM6467 combines both "an ARM (News - Alert) and a DSP core, along with a High-Definition Video and Imaging Co-Processor (HDVICP), as well as PCI bus
and Ethernet among its connectivity peripherals."
"The rapid proliferation of IP video surveillance is promoting the use of distributed surveillance architecture with intelligence migrated towards the edge of the network, now allowing our customers an even more cost-effective solution," said Igal Dvir, CTO for NiceVision, NICE Systems (News - Alert).
"Intelligent edge devices, such as in the NiceVision Net portfolio support advanced compression and streaming capabilities, as well as video analytics on board. TI's leadership in the video surveillance market and its clear roadmap were among the main reasons for taking the decision to further enhance our relationship and implement our intelligent edge devices using this technology."
