Mn_nH release 360 degree image stitching IP for VR camera SoC.
January 26, 2017 -- The global market of virtual reality is growing more and more, it expand to mixed reality also. There have been many attempts to make VR / MR renovation products as VR headset, controller and VR camera in 2016. Specially, lacking an IC for VR video processing, it’s not easy to make VR camera for enough immersion. High quality 360 degree shooting for VR is required really huge resource, so without AP for VR video processing, it can’t make it.
Now Mn_nH provide highly optimized 360 degree image stitching IP for VR camera.
Mn_nH’s 360 degree stitching IP is designed to support any number of cameras and combination, not only 2 fish-eye sensors VR camera for consumer but also up to 32 sensors VR camera for professional shooting system. When using multiple sensors, there are quite big difference of image properties between different directional sensors, but MnStitch make complete natural one 360 degree image in spite of keeping origin image properties at each sensor with IP’s own blending algorithm and its VR video quality is really excellent as bellows.
The here and now, many VR expert prospect that 8K 90fps is minimum qualification and 16K 120fps is aimed to make enough immersion. To proceed and achieve it, for highly optimized VR SoC system, specially memory bandwidth reduction is essential. Mn_nH’s stitching IP include smart cache controller is particularly optimized for random rotation warping at each pixel and provide stitching on the fly with H.265 encoder IP, so can reduce system resource significantly.
Mn_nH will provide highly optimized IP and suggest leading IP for VR video processing from now on constantly. It can get Mn_nH’s VR stitching IP’s detailed overview and more video samples at http://www.mn-nh.com/mnstitch and IP will provide through multiple on site as bellows.
