Texas Instruments expanded its DaVinci digital media processor platform by introducing the TMS320DM8168 and TMS320DM8148 video processors. The high-performance DM8168 DaVinci digital media processor offers three times the video streaming capability over competing solutions, according to the company with up to three simultaneous 1080p60 fps video streams, 12 simultaneous 720p30 fps video streams or a combination of lower resolution streams. This enables users to build video-centric systems that capture, encode, decode and analyze multiple video streams simultaneously on up to three independent displays. It also concurrently allows customers to differentiate their products with advanced analytics capabilities. It is appropriate for multi-channel HD video surveillance systems, video conferencing systems, media hubs and servers and video broadcasting systems. The lower-power DM8148 DaVinci digital media processor offers a single, high-performance, 1080p60 fps video stream, three simultaneous 720p30 fps video streams or multiple lower resolution streams at 3 W. It is suitablefor power-sensitive, consumer and medical video applications requiring fewer video streams.
