Business Wire: Ambarella introduces S2L, a family of Full HD camera SoCs for consumer, small business and professional IP-camera security applications. The S2L’s Smart-AVCTM H.264 low bitrate streaming technology reduces network bandwidth requirements, lowers cloud storage costs and supports the use of multiple cameras in home environments. Its flexible ARM Cortex-A9 CPU provides the performance required for intelligent video analytics such as intrusion detection, or audio analytics such as breaking glass detection. Additionally, the S2L dewarper can correct images captured from wide angle lenses to enable cameras that cover a wide viewing area.
"The S2L family brings advanced professional features to mainstream and consumer IP cameras, including Full HD video, High Dynamic Range (HDR) image processing, advanced analytics and wide angle viewing," said Chris Day, VP of Marketing and Business Development at Ambarella. "Designed in an advanced 28nm process, S2L enables a new generation of intelligent, ultra-low power and small form factor IP cameras with outstanding video quality."
The S2L family includes a series of software-compatible SoCs that range from 720p30 up to 1080p60 H.264 video and up to 5 MP resolution. The S2L chips feature multi-exposure HDR and Motion Compensated Temporal Filtering (MCTF) noise reduction. Power consumption for 1080p30 encoding is under 500mW including DRAM.
