Advancing from traditional analog cameras to those with the next-generation processing power of digital technology has been a central trend in the industry for several years. Digital video surveillance enables high-quality, intelligent systems that feature remarkable functionality, providing a higher level of security. New Internet Protocol (IP) camera technology based on digital signal processors (DSPs) is driving the digital video surveillance market today. Networked cameras supporting multiple formats and offering highresolution images enable video content analysis at an unprecedented level with the added benefit of the functions being controlled remotely and stored securely both on the network and locally within the camera. Designers focused on this market can keep up with its demands by using TI’s flexible TMS320DM644x processors based on DaVinci technology for quality networked video and the Digital Video Evaluation Module (DVEVM) to get to market quickly with a variety of products that will help further develop this market.
