Reusable Camera Framework

With over a billion surveillance cameras keeping an eye on the world, the camera market is expected to grow at a massive CAGR of 13% by 2025 as per IHS Markit research. Key factors fueling such rapid growth are public safety, smart city, government regulations, traffic management, and biometric face recognition applications, etc.

Smart cameras empowered with IP technology, edge analytics, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity will open up new horizons and opportunities across diverse industry verticals.

With vast experience and in-depth expertise in designing custom camera solutions, eInfochips has helped OEMs stay ahead of the technology curve. eInfochips has developed a Reusable Camera Framework (RCF) to accelerate time-to-market and significantly reduce development efforts for a proven, tested feature set.

eInfochips RCF is a hardware platform-agnostic solution that can be used as a firmware platform for IP camera design. RCF enables purpose-built core services to be reused to kick-start camera development, thus allowing OEMs to focus on breakthrough technology innovations.
