The VATICS M5S, leveraged advanced technology node 28nm, is a new-generation SoC designed for a variety of professional and consumer IP cameras including security cameras, home cameras, video doorbell camera, battery camera, 180° and 360°panoramic cameras, as well as home appliance and robot cameras. The M5S empowers a fast development of high-quality and multi-lens camera applications, offering upto 4-channels video-input, independent advanced multiple ISP pipelines (incl. multi-exposure High Dynamic Range fusion) with dedicated video quality enhancements for multiple wide-angle lenses & sensors, plus on-chip dewarping, stitching, and blending, all together for high quality real-time panoramic camera video processing. Besides, M5S permits significant CPU loading saving while keeping still a high flexibilities of distortion corrections required for various fisheye and wide-angle lenses to provide industry-leading quality of panoramic video reproduction.
The M5S integrates a 720MHz ARM® Cortex™ A5 CPU and NEON™, a CEVA DSP and rich peripherals for tailoring up every needs for a wide range of camera applications. The M5S provides high efficient video encoding for 5M@30fps HEVC(H.265) and 2M@60fps AVC(H.264) where newly developed SmartHEVC encoding can save up to 60% on network bandwidth and local storage when compared to standard H.264. It grants greatly improved accessibility to most of IP camera applications and a great deal of bandwidth and/or storage cost saving.
The M5S SDK provides Linux-based and RTOS-based framework and development environment that includes tuning tools and a rich set of APIs, enabling easy product customization and differentiation in areas such as sensor and lens tuning, audio and video analytics porting and refining.
