Ambarella Presents Artificial Intelligence Image Signal Processor (AISP)

GlobeNewswire: Ambarella announces an Artificial Intelligence Image Signal Processor (AISP). The new AISP will become available across Ambarella’s entire CVflow SoC portfolio at resolutions up to 4K. The applications of this technology encompass all of the company’s target markets, where low-light and HDR processing are critical. This includes security and automotive cameras, where full-color night vision is a key operating point, and where better low-light and HDR enable reductions in external illumination, the use of lower cost sensors, and cleaner video for both human viewing and analytics processing.

A good example of this new technology in action is a typical security camera trying to identify a license plate at night. With noisy video, the text on the license plate would be unreadable, even to the best AI algorithm. And with black and white video, all color information on the car would be lost. By using Ambarella’s AISP technology and restoring colors at the source before AI processing, the license plate can be clearly read and the color of the car identified.

  1. It would be really interesting to learn more exactly what their neural networks are actually doing in their ISP...
