BusinessWire: Ambarella introduces the S5 SoC for 4K and multi-imager IP camera designs. The S5 offers 4K multi-exposure HDR fusion, 360° de-warp and ultra-low light processing. Maximum performance is 4Kp120 or 8Kp30 of H.264/AVC and 4Kp60 frames of H.265/HEVC, while supporting multi-streaming, rate control and transcoding functions. The S5 supports the high-quality Main10 HEVC Profile (10-bit H.265) and Ambarella’s SmartHEVC technology to reduce 4Kp30 video bitrates to between 512 Kbps and 4 Mbps. The S5 image sensor interface and its advanced 1-Gigapixel/s ISP can be configured as up to four independent sensor inputs to allow high resolution multi-imager cameras.
“The S5 will play a critical role in the industry’s shift to 4K and H.265," said Fermi Wang, President and CEO of Ambarella. "With it, our partners gain a leading-edge image processor that delivers low power consumption, superior image quality, smart H.265 compression and a powerful quad-core CPU.”
Ambarella low-power architecture combined with 14nm FinFET process enables 4Kp30 encoding, including DDR, at less than 1.4 Watts
