nVision from dPict Imaging is a multi-format intelligent video acquisition device for mobile or remote capture. nVision digitizes and transmits high-quality, full-resolution video over TCP/IP networks in real time. nVision’s compact size allows it to be installed anywhere a network connection exists. Designed with a powerful TI DM642 video processor, nVision is perfect for video analysis applications.
nVision is a fully integrated device for remote video streaming over Ethernet. Its compact size allows it to be installed anywhere a network connection exists, whether a laptop or server.
Digital Video Processor
nVision is equipped with a powerful Texas Instruments DM642 Video Processor, making it perfect for video analytics applications. Image processing functions such as image enhancement, stabilization, advanced motion detection, noise filtering, frame de-interlacing, image rotation, video overlay, or license plate recognition can be accomplished.
High-Quality Video Capture
nVision accepts RGB or YPrPb component, S-Video, or Composite video inputs from NTSC or PAL video sources. nVision’s 10-bit video digitization assures the highest-quality image possible. Video streaming is fully configurable. Transfer can be in uncompressed, motion JPEG, or in programmable dual streaming mode. Video can be digitized up to 720×480 and scaled to any arbitrary size.
For analog video monitors, nVision can decode networked digital video streams and convert the digital video for output on it’s video output port. A programmable overlay can be applied to the output video for on-screen display.
nVision contains extensive camera and I/O control to make application development simple. By utilizing an integrated microcontroller and 64 MB frame buffer, nVision provides reliable image transfer to prevent dropped images. nVision also supplies a dual UART serial interface to control cameras and six programmable general-purpose I/O triggers for event notification. nVision is also available with up to 32 MB of flash memory for boot load options, presets, or integrated web interface.
nVision API and Developers Kit
The nVision API is a comprehensive board support package that comes complete with drivers and samples and is compatible with TI’s Code Composer Studio. For ease in application development, the nVision Developer’s Kit also supplies an nVision I/O Carrier board (pictured below) and power supply. The nVision I/O Carrier board provides for standard connections for video, communications, and trigger I/O.
