HD streaming video in wide-area surveillance systems: A reconfigurable hardware processor approach - Story

August 26, 2010
The demand for higher-quality video imagery in surveillance systems requires an advanced link between the sensors and the usable video data. An image processing system consisting exclusively of software processing isn't capable of meeting these demands, and an ASIC-based system doesn't provide the needed flexibility. Because of the compute-intensive nature of pixel processing, an FPGA-based imaging processing design using JPEG2000 encoding provides a powerful and flexible methodology.
