NEW PRODUCT PRESS RELEASE
CogniVue Unveils World's Smallest, Lowest Power, Smart Camera Development Module
CogniVue Corporation, a pioneer of a new class of programmable processors for low power, small form factor embedded intelligent vision processing, has announced CV2201 Prototype Design Kit (PDK) – the smallest and lowest power smart camera module demonstration and development platform in the market today. CV2201 PDK, a programmable 1-inch cube camera designed with OmniVision's OV7962 advanced CMOS image sensor and CogniVue's CV2201 Image Cognition Processor (ICP), enables a multitude of embedded vision applications executing real-time image processing and scene analysis for markets where size and power matter.
The CV2201 PDK reference module provides developers with a proof-of-concept design to showcase algorithms and applications early in the development cycle, accelerating time to market and reducing risk. CV2201 PDK enables a number of markets, including:
# Advanced driver assistance systems for automotive
# Consumer appliance control using gesture recognition
# Audience measurement using face/people detection and tracking
# Asset monitoring and smart video monitoring
# Occupancy sensing in smart buildings
# Military/law enforcement using mobile/body-worn cameras
CV2201 PDK launches with a comprehensive software suite, including the Image Cognition Processor Software Development Kit (ICP SDK), OpenCV-based Imaging Tool Kit, application tool kits, and code development tools, making programming straightforward and practical. A growing number of sophisticated embedded vision functions such as moving object detection/tracking, gesture recognition, face detection, lane departure warning, blind spot detection and smart back-up camera are available on CV2201 PDK.
"The CogniVue CV2201 PDK camera module is a key component for the next generation of smart image sensing applications," said Mario Heid, marketing manager at OmniVision. "The CV2201 PDK camera module represents a significant advancement in terms of performance, size and power. OmniVision is pleased to be part of this device and looks forward to developing new industry solutions for a wide range of markets."
"CV2201 PDK is a catalyst to enabling the adoption of embedded vision systems in several emerging markets where excellent image quality and best-in-class low light sensitivity are critical. OmniVision's OV7962 is the ideal single-chip camera solution to meet these requirements," said Tom Wilson, Director of Product Management at CogniVue. "With CV2201 PDK, customers have the basis for a production-ready camera design that can be tailored to their specifications and manufactured in volume with our ODM partner, Zorg Industries."
CV2201 PDK is designed and manufactured by China-based ODM, Zorg Industries and sold through CogniVue's global sales and distribution partner, Future Electronics.
