Ambarella A7 IP Camera SoC for Surveillance Applications

Business Wire: Ambarella announced the A7 IP Camera SoC capable to deliver 1080p60 H.264 video for surveillance market. The A7 integrates an image sensor pipeline with up to 500 MHz pixel capture rate (equivalent to 8MP at 60fps) with a multi-streaming 1080p60 H.264 encoder and power consumption below 1.5 Watts.

The A7 supports 3D motion compensated noise reduction with no motion smearing and ghosting artifacts that are commonly associated with motion adaptive 3D filtering and digital WDR.
