Ambarella Announces DSC Processor with 1080p60 Video, 16MP/30fps Stills and HDR Support

Ambarella announced availability of the A7L SoC for HD video enabled DSCs. The A7L supports full 1080p HD H.264 video at 60fps and can capture up to thirty 16MP still images per second. A7L features multi-frame high ISO image capture, HDR processing, lens distortion correction, hardware support for real-time panorama sweep photography, and 3D Motion Compensated Temporal Filtering (MCTF). The A7L is fabricated in 32nm process, and requires only a single 16-bit DDR3 DRAM.

The A7L offers a unique combination of outstanding still image quality and full 1080p60 HD video for the next generation of hybrid digital still cameras,” said Fermi Wang, Ambarella CEO. “We believe the chip’s incredibly low power consumption will not only extend battery life but inspire innovation in new camera form factors.

"The Digital Still Camera market is forecasted to grow to over 150 million units in 2012, as new models offer both high still image quality and full HD video,” said Chris Chute, Research Manager, Worldwide Digital Imaging Solutions and Services of IDC.
