The Realtek IoT/Wi-Fi MCU Ameba Pro2 supports Amazon Kinesis Video Streams, offering camera devices high-quality video streaming
As various innovative technologies continue to emerge, smart camera equipment is gradually moving towards a more intelligent and real-time connected imaging future. The Realtek Ameba Pro2 supports Amazon Kinesis Video Streams. Through Amazon Kinesis Video Streams, video can be securely and easily streamed from connected devices to AWS. Combined with the high-performance microcontroller of Ameba Pro2, it can effectively process complex scenes and support high-speed computation, thus offering cameras enhanced image quality.
Amazon Kinesis Video Streams Smart Video Streaming
Amazon Kinesis Video Streams makes it easy to securely stream video from connected devices to AWS for analytics, machine learning (ML), playback, and other processing. Kinesis Video Streams automatically provisions and elastically scales all the infrastructure needed to ingest streaming video data from millions of devices. It durably stores, encrypts, and indexes video data in your streams, and allows you to access your data through easy-to-use APIs. Kinesis Video Streams enables you to playback video for live and on-demand viewing, and quickly build applications that take advantage of computer vision and video analytics through integration with Amazon Rekognition Video, and libraries for ML frameworks such as Apache MxNet, TensorFlow, and OpenCV. Kinesis Video Streams also supports WebRTC, an open-source project that enables real-time media streaming and interaction between web browsers, mobile applications, and connected devices via simple APIs.
The Ameba Pro2 microcontroller offers improved image quality
The Ameba Pro2 is equipped with a high-performance 32-bit Arm v8M microcontroller (MCU), designed specifically for handling highly complex image processing tasks. It can support high-speed computations, which is crucial for camera applications. Additionally, it comes with an AI intelligence engine, enabling rapid and efficient image analysis and processing. Its built-in Image Signal Processor (ISP) can precisely process raw image data from cameras and carry out essential optimizations to ensure the delivery of the highest quality imagery. Its support for H.264 and H.265 video encoding/decoding not only ensures efficient image compression and transmission but also significantly saves storage space. The development code is hundreds of lines shorter than before, further reducing camera manufacturing costs.
Ameba Pro2 also offers a diverse range of interface options, including SPI, I2C, PWM, and UART, making it easy to connect to various external devices, including cameras. Furthermore, it supports 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), ensuring high-speed and stable wireless connections, making it a high-performance smart camera solution.
Combining the technology of Ameba Pro2 with Amazon Kinesis Video Streams provides customers with a more efficient and economical solution, making it the best choice for building an IoT imaging environment.
