Company’s Low Power, Low Profile Image Processor to be Featured at Booth 523 in Demonstrations of Simulated Drone Technology for Professional and Advanced Hobbyist Applications
SUNNYVALE, CA, Nov. 17, 2015 - Socionext America Inc., a leader in sate-of-the art image processing technology, will demonstrate its innovative IC technology for drone applications at the second annual International Drone Expo in Los Angeles Dec. 11-12.
In booth 523 at the Expo, Socionext will demonstrate a drone simulation using the company’s Milbeaut imaging technology, along with a video presentation that provides a side-by-side comparison of drone video capture with and without EIS. Socionext’s MB86S27-“M-8M” device from its Milbeaut™ family combines with drone technology developed by FotoNation’s EIS technology to deliver outstanding video image stabilization and dramatically extended drone flight-times with far lower power consumption than competing solutions.
The company will also show a video of a drone with fisheye lens in flight using Socionext’s 360-degree Wrap-Around Video Imaging Technology, which utilizes three-dimensional-algorithms to smoothly combine images from dual cameras, delivering a seamless and clear 360-degree view.
M-8M from Socionext
The M-8M Milbeaut features a powerful codec engine delivering high-resolution 4K image, with 16M pixel images at 30 frame per second (fps), noise reduction, shading correction, and 3A (AE / AF / AWB) detection. Power consumption is only 1.3W at 4K 30fps.
