Ambarella H3 SoC delivers 8K Ultra HD at 30 frames per second and
4K Ultra HD at 120 frames per second
SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Ambarella, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMBA), a leading developer of low-power, HD and
Ultra HD video processing semiconductors, today introduced the H3
System-on-Chip (SoC) for high-end drones and a new generation of video
cameras, including 360-degree and virtual reality cameras. The H3 video
SoC enables 8K Ultra HD H.264/AVC video at 30 frames per second, as well
as multiple video streams with equivalent performance, including
360-degree cameras with dual 4KP60 sensor video capture.
8K videos played on large 8K displays provide a better viewing
experience to the end user, as pixels at this resolution are
indistinguishable to the human eye at any reasonable distance. The
combination of 8K video capture together with Ambarella's advanced
oversampling and image stabilization also enables higher video quality
4K video recording.
"With the introduction of H3 we believe we provide the highest video
performance and best image quality solution for high-end drones and
multi-sensor video cameras," said Fermi Wang, president and CEO of
Ambarella. "H3 delivers 8Kp30 video performance to match the next
generation of displays, such as 8K televisions and high resolution
H3 includes a powerful multi-channel ISP for 360 degree video capture
and multi-sensor drone applications. Its 10-bit HEVC High Dynamic Range
(HDR) video processing handles high contrast and wide color range
scenes. It also features Ambarella's advanced Electronic Image
Stabilization (EIS), capable of generating a smooth 4Kp60 video output
under challenging conditions, including during high winds and with high
degrees of rotation. The integration of a quad-core ARM® Cortex®-A53 CPU
with floating point and NEON™ provides significant processing power for
customer applications including computer vision, wireless networking,
and multi-sensor stitching algorithms. The H3's hardware de-warping
engine supports wide-angle panoramic camera designs and fish-eye lenses.
Ambarella will demonstrate the new H3 SoC at a private, invitation only
event held during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas,
January 5 - 8, 2017.
