Reference Framework 5 (RF5) for eXpressDSP Software provides a fast ramp to DSP application development using DSP/BIOS and the eXpressDSP Algorithm Standard (XDAIS). The RF5 adaptation for the Network and Video Developer’s Kit (NVDK) provides starterware with which to develop network and video specific applications.

This application note uses this adaptation to develop a motion detection system. Motion detection is done by comparing the current video frame to a specified reference frame. Using a pixel-by-pixel comparison, unequal portions of the current frame are colored. This application note guides you through the steps needed to transform the original generic architecture into the desired system.

The target audience is anyone who wishes to develop a video-based multichannel application using RF5. This application note covers all necessary steps—from adding channels and cells to implementing control messages.
