SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GEO Semiconductor Inc. ("GEO"), the industry leader in programmable, high performance, video and geometry processing IC solutions, today announced the availability of its new security camera reference design jointly created by GEO Semiconductor and Aptina. Code-named Janus, the reference design features GEO’s AnyView technology and will be demonstrated at the International Security Conference 2012 (ISC West 2012) being held in Las Vegas, Nevada from March 28th through 30th 2012.
Janus is a complete Full HD (1080p60) camera system that integrates GEO’s AnyView technology targeted at security and surveillance applications. Combining Aptina’s AR0331 high dynamic range sensor and Image Co-Processor ICP-HD with GEO’s sxW2 IC and Janus enables designers to implement advanced capabilities and features in security cameras not previously available in the marketplace. These features collectively referred to as AnyView, include:
- Elimination of multiple cameras by the selection and display of multiple (1-8) views of any size from the fish eye input view while performing real-time full HD De-warping with independent dynamic pan tilt and zoom capabilities in each of the windows;
- “Zero Pixel LossTM” panoramic views of the fish eye input at full HD (1080p60) resolution;
- Ability to auto calibrate and correct for lens distortions;
- Stitching together of multiple sensor image streams, to provide ultra-wide panoramic views;
- Reduction of system cost by use of inexpensive optics and plastic lenses; and
- Maximization of image capture area through the use of elliptical and custom lenses.
Additionally, these unique capabilities allow designers to reduce the weight and cost of camera systems as well as enhance the reliability of cameras by eliminating motors for mechanical pan, tilt and zoom. The open, self-configuring architecture of the platform permits designers to use multiple ICs to target systems of higher resolutions. A demonstration of these capabilities can be viewed from March 28th through March 30th, 2012 at GEO Semiconductor’s exhibit #6141 on the show floor in Sands Expo and Convention Center during the exhibit hours as follows:
|Wednesday||March 28, 2012 10:00am - 5:00pm|
|Thursday||March 29, 2012 10:00am - 5:00pm|
|Friday||March 30, 2012 10:00am - 3:00pm|

About GEO Semiconductor
GEO is the industry leader in programmable, high performance geometric processor ICs focused on smartphones, smartphone peripherals, automotive cameras and surveillance markets. GEO's highly patented eWARPTM platform technology features the lowest power and silicon cost for performing unlimited pixel transformations such as de-warping wide-angle, fisheye and 360 degree video streams and enabling all digital ePTZ (electronic pan/tilt/zoom). In addition, eWARPTM processors can simultaneously correct for optical distortion and stitch together multiple camera video streams. These capabilities result in lower optical system costs as well as reduced manufacturing costs through digital calibration. eWarp also enables new product and feature categories hitherto not economically feasible using conventional approaches. GEO's Emmy Award winning Realta™ (real-time processing of video algorithms in software, trillions ops/sec) platform technology enables ICs that can perform Hollywood-proven video processing in software and in real time on a single device. It is anticipated that at 40 nm and below, this superior approach will become fully competitive with conventional hard-wired video processing approaches. GEO is focused on the rapidly growing sensor-based camera markets and has in excess of 30 customers in production or design with its existing ICs. GEO also has the next generation eWARPTM IC device in design. GEO is headquartered in Santa Clara, California with offices in Toronto and Orlando, and sales channels around the world. www.geosemi.com
