FPGA based UltraHD (4K) Camera Design

Executive Summary

The client is a niche high performance surveillance camera company based in Europe. Their market entry strategy revolved around a flagship UltraHD camera product for global markets. There was no single embedded platform capable of processing 4K resolution video. With limited expertise on Linux and 4K processing capabilities, the client was looking for an experienced engineering partner.

The solution required porting of multiple IP cores on an FPGA, and then using a DSP to encode and stream. The system also used an ARM processor to record and stream UltraHD (4K) content. Such a complex setup required expertise on ARM, FPGA and DSP platforms. As a turnkey solution partner, we delivered end-to-end hardware and software for the camera.

The architecture and design was completed to the expected performance. They are one of the first companies in the world to offer a 4Kx3K (UltraHD) resolution IP camera.
