CHELMSFORD, Mass. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Axis Communications, the market leader in network video, announces the next generation of its market-leading system-on-chip specifically designed for network video cameras and video encoders. The new ARTPEC-5 (Axis Real Time Picture Encoder) is based on dual core multiprocessor architecture, features a larger cache size and higher memory throughput. More processing power and performance provide increased capabilities for intelligent video processing and video analytics applications.
The new ARTPEC-5 chip features support for the H.264 High Profile video compression standard and high frame rate (60 fps) encoding in full 1080p HDTV resolution. This resembles twice the frame rate and resolution offered by conventional HDTV video surveillance solutions today. High frame rates capture quick movements in detail such as the license plates of fast moving vehicles. With full HDTV resolution, large overview areas can be monitored without compromising image detail when an incident occurs.
With the ARTPEC-5, Axis introduces an optimized design resulting in reduced power consumption of network video cameras and video encoders. The new chip can handle more video streams simultaneously than previous generations, features a faster SD-card interface for edge storage and allows Axis to design cameras with advanced image processing capabilities to address the most demanding video surveillance challenges.
With its dual core multiprocessor architecture, larger cache size and higher memory throughput, the new ARTPEC-5 chip provides more processing power and performance for intelligent video processing and video analytics applications. With AXIS Camera Application Platform, users can download intelligent video applications to run inside Axis network cameras and video encoders. A large portfolio of applications is available offering advanced functionalities such as recognition, people/object counting, detection and tracking.
AXIS Camera Application Platform also enables third party software providers to develop applications that can be downloaded and installed on Axis cameras. Application developers can sign up for the Axis Application Development Partner (ADP) program. Axis provides a software development kit (SDK) and a compatibility tool to ensure that applications run on all Axis cameras.
The first product incorporating the new ARTPEC-5 chip is the AXIS Q7436 Video Encoder, a new high performance 6-channel video encoder blade.
