Fujitsu release 6th generation of Mibeaut Imaging Processor the Milbeaut MB91696AM, Fujitsu’s next-gen Milbeaut image processor does single-chip Hi-Vision video.By Fujitsu Milbeaut MB91696AM you can realizes high-speed continuous shooting at 8 frames per second and high-resolution Full Hi-Vision movies…..
Fujitsu Semiconductor Limited announced the development of MB91696AM, the newest model in the Milbeaut series of advanced imaging processors. Samples of the new model will begin shipping in April 2011.Fujitsu MB91696AM represents the sixth generation of the Milbeaut image processing algorithm which has been widely adopted due to its high reliability and allowing both high-speed continuous shooting at 8 frames per second and also higher video quality. Fujitsu MB91696AM is equipped with a newly-developed Full HD H.264 codec engine, enabling clear, low-noise recording of high-resolution Full Hi-Vision movies (1920 X 1080 pixels).
Fujitsu has been able to achieve a balance between quality and speed for both high-resolution video and still photography, thereby enabling camera solutions to be developed using a single chip.Fujitsu Semiconductor has responded to these challenges by enhancing its proprietary Milbeaut image processing algorithm and H.264 Full HD codec engine, thereby meeting the high-resolution needs of users, from still images to HD movies, using a single chip.Fujitsu MB91696AM represents the sixth generation of the Milbeaut image processing algorithm. Milbeaut is an image processor that has been widely adopted in digital cameras, mobile phone cameras and other devices since its release in 2000. MB91696AM features a significantly-improved image processing algorithm that enables higher image quality and processing performance.
The processor is equipped with two ARM processors, an industry-standard CPU core nd features continuous photography performance approximately five times that of previous Fujitsu products. Fujitsu Semiconductor has performed a complete optimization of its Full HD H.264 codec engine. The new engine enables the capturing of high-resolution images through a proprietary image processing algorithm, which was developed in collaboration with Fujitsu Laboratories Limited. This product was jointly developed by Fujitsu VLSI Limited, Fujitsu Microelectronics Solutions Limited and Fujitsu Laboratories Limited.
- Sixth generation Milbeaut image processing algorithm
The sixth generation Milbeaut image processing algorithm improves image processing flow, performs real-time noise correction and filter processing, and achieves even higher image quality. This allows continuous shooting speeds of roughly five times that of previous Fujitsu products, making it possible to shoot 8 frames per second at 14 megapixels and 5.5 frames per second at 20 megapixels.
- Enhanced Full HD H.264 codec engine developed specifically for digital cameras
Fujitsu Semiconductor has developed a new H.264 codec engine designed specifically for digital cameras. This engine is based on the H.264 codec engine algorithm, originally developed by Fujitsu Laboratories Limited and now employed in a large number of AV devices.
This engine produces high-quality images while removing video-specific noise.
- Equipped with dual ARM processor cores
MB91696AM is equipped with two ARM processors, which are commonly used in mobile phones and other devices, thereby enabling the parallel processing of image applications. Having separate cores capable of operating independently from each other contributes greatly to digital camera response speeds and other performance. In addition, a wide variety of middleware and development environments can be employed, helping to reduce customers’ development burden.
