MunichSeiko Epson Corp. has developed the S2S65P10 I/P converter IC for multi-video input that is aimed at surveillance and vehicle-mounted cameras.
The S2S65P10 converts interlaced signals to progressive format. By using this product in combination with Epson's S1S65010 network video camera or S2S65A00 dual camera compatible image controller IC, NTSC/PAL signals from a video decoder can be converted to JPEG. Since the product comes equipped with a large volume of SRAM, external RAM is not required.
In addition, the product supplies four channels for video input and supports a wide variety of display output formats, including stationary display output, automatic scan display output, and 4-input merged display output. This product is also equipped with a motion detection function. Motion detection allows users to conserve system power through host CPU interruption.
Epson has also developed and plans to begin marketing the S2S65A00 dual camera compatible image controller IC. Utilizing the S2S65P10 in a chipset together with the S2S65A00 will make it possible to connect up to eight camera sets (camera modules plus NTSC/PAL decoders).
Alternatively, by using the S2S65P10 in a chipset with the S1S65010 network camera IC already on the market, customers will be able to connect up to four camera sets (camera modules plus NTSC/PAL decoders).
