Argon Design Ltd, a company specialising in digital video and multimedia technology, has signed up the first licensee for Argon360, hardware based intellectual property for real-time video stitching, addressing the rapidly expanding 360-degree panoramic video camera market.
Argon360 is designed to be incorporated into next generation SoCs for cameras, smartphones and other devices supporting 360° panoramic video acquisition. Argon Design CTO Steve Barlow explains: “By implementing sophisticated video stitching algorithms in hardware, Argon360 is able to offer an unmatched combination of video quality and performance, with the low power consumption required for portable battery-powered devices. The system can handle any combination of up to six sensors with an output resolution of up to 8192 x 4320 at 30 frames per second, and has an ultra-low latency of just one frame”.
Argon360 is targeted at semiconductor companies and product manufacturers for use in applications such as action cameras, broadcast equipment, security cameras, medical equipment and drones. The instant availability of high quality stitched content helps to simplify and enrich the user experience, supporting 360° streaming for immersive social media interaction, real-time 360° preview, instant playback of stitched video and immediate availability of immersive content for upload to the Cloud.
