One of the major developments in the security surveillance market is the introduction of HD smart IP cameras, where video analytics are moving from a centralized server to the edge and cameras communicate to the control center through Ethernet protocols. This allows for a more flexible, highly scalable network topology for security installations. However, incorporating all of the required functions into a high performance, small form factor camera with minimal power consumption is a growing challenge for designers.
Zynq™ 7000 SoCs are the ideal platform for building today’s “smart” surveillance cameras with the highest levels of integration and flexibility. Unlike typical multichip implementations which require a co-processing solution and leave little room for differentiation, Zynq 7000 devices enable a single-chip integrated signal processor (ISP) with wide dynamic range image sensor support and customizable video algorithms.
