SAN JOSE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 1, 2015 — GEO Semiconductor Inc. (“GEO”), a leader in camera video processors today announced its new GW4 product family with up to 2 Megapixel support, a high dynamic range (HDR) image signal processor (ISP), Dynamic On Screen Display (OSD), and GEO’s advanced programmable geometric processor.
The GW4 product line has two products designed as fully qualified (AEC Q100 Grade 2) automotive camera processors: the (GW4100) with support for NTSC Analog cameras and the (GW4200) with HD digital camera support up to 1080p60. The GW4200 is ideal for applications such as backup, side-view and rear-view mirror replacement, surround or bird’s eye view, and front viewing automotive cameras where power and size limitations are critical design factors. The third product in the family, the GW4300, is designed to meet the requirements of industrial and consumer applications, such as surveillance, wearable as well as the automotive aftermarket.
GEO’s patented eWARP® processor enables real time spatial morphing of the image, ability to perform AutoCal® for electronic calibration and digital alignment, as well as providing impressive features including electronic Pan/Tilt/Zoom (ePTZ). ePTZ allows for dynamic re-positioning of the camera to provide different viewing perspectives, while enabling object tracking, monitoring the steering direction of cars, and simulating the adjustment of a mirror’s viewing angle.
“Our GW4 series of camera video processors is ideally suited for the automotive market as it provides customers with advanced features in a small, cost-effective, low power assembly,” said John Casey, Vice President and General Manager, for GEO Semiconductor’s automotive business. “This product line is positioned as the highest performance solution in the market today, offering HDR, programmable eWARP, and a very versatile On Screen Display feature, all packaged in a tiny 6x6mm package and operating at <200mW.”
