Fujitsu Releases 6th Generation of Milbeaut Imaging Processors
Fujitsu announced yesterday its sixth generation of its Milbeaut imaging processor specially designed for Cameras and Camcorder. This new Porcessor, the MB91696AM allows both high-speed continuous shooting at 8 frames per second (at a 14 megapixel resolution) and higher video quality.
Furthermore, 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).
Features of MB91696AM
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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.
