September 27, 2017 -- Nowadays 360 degree image is widely used for not only HMD but also web image, action cam and special place promotions.
A step further, several IoT applications like as drone, ADAS, robot, military and boring camera try to adopt 360 degree image to enhance convenience and record surround image included more informations.
For last 2 years, many of VR cameras is released with various rig. Specially stereo 3D 360 image can make incredible immersive experience with using HMD. But, to make stereo 3D 360 image, there is some trade-off. Sticking based stitching can process realtime but it occur stereo misalign at stitching line between cameras, on the other hand, optical flow based pixel by pixel rendering can make pure and qualified stereo 3D 360 result but it’s required huge computing resource even cloud server.
Here, Mn_nH provide stereo 3D 360 stitching IP solution included hardwired realtime IP and optical flow based post stitching software package also.
Mn_nH’s hardwired stereo 3D 360 stitching IP is low power designed with compact logic size and minimum system resources.
And IP include specific algorithm for seamless stitching and blending ISP difference for HDR between multiple source channels.
H/W IP is highly optimized for realtime 3D 360 stitching processing and expandable for higher resolution up to 12K.
Now there are various trials for VR camera, so H/W IP support at least 4 cameras up to 24 cameras multi channel with calibration tools for any camera rig.
One the other hand, for optical flow based stitching at PC or server, it need multi channel video sources but its recoded size is really big.
So Mn_nH provide multi-view video encoder IP supported H.264 or H.265 standards and its recoded size can be reduced almost half.
Mn_nH’s 360 software engine render pixel by pixel with not only optical flow based but also video analytic based.
It make pure and highly qualified stereo 3D 360 with no distortion for close object and no misalign for stereo matching.
Each H/W, S/W stitching sample is available now.

Now, Mn_nH’s stitching IP is under evaluation for several customers to make drone, ADAS and VR cameras with 360 full view and
professional studios licensed rendering based stitching software for custom VR camera rig.
Mn_nH will provide highly optimized IP and suggest leading IP for VR video processing from now on constantly.
