Vimicro launches surveillance camera designs

Designs include SoC and ePTZ solutions

The MT9P031 showcases Micron's groundbreaking DigitalClarity technology, which enables brilliant, high-resolution color images that rival CCD-level image quality (based on signal-to-noise ratio and low-light sensitivity) without CCD-level power consumption. The MT9P031 superbly captures single frames as well as continuous video at up to 15 frames per second in full resolution or up to 60 frame per second at 720P HD resolution.

About VC0706 ePTZ solution

The Vimicro ePTZ solution is based on Vimicro's surveillance camera SoC VC0706 and the 5 mega pixel CMOS image sensor MT9P031 from Aptina Imaging to enable motorless Pan/Tilt/Zoom functionalities.

Vimicro's ePTZ solution can support up to 256X digital zoom and address any portion within the full view window. The ePTZ can be controlled through a keypad or a standard PTZ control protocol. The ePTZ solution supports embedded OSD image overlay function with logo, text, and date. With the OSD function enabled, the ePTZ solution further delivers a ''private zone'' feature. A portion of the view window can be designated and mosaic-ed as private zone, which automatically adjusts itself during PTZ.
