Denali-MC HDR ISP –
The Most Flexible Camera ISP ON Earth

Pinnacle’s Denali-MC HDR video and HDR still ISP platform is designed to be the most flexible ISP on the market and with limited development can support 29 different HDR capable CMOS image sensors, including 9 Aptina/ON Semi, 6 Omnivision and 11 Sony sensors and 12 different pixel-level gain and frame-set HDR methods. *

The Denali-MC is currently demonstrated on a Xilinx Zynq 7045 FPGA, but can be utilized on DSP and SoC + DSP, (including TI and Qualcomm). The Denali-MC platform utilizes a Sony IMX290LQR sensor with multiple frameset output and Sony’s DOL HDR modes driven by a Xilinx Zynq 7045 FPGA.

At the heart of Pinnacle’s Denali-MC surveillance ISP are world-class algorithm-based cores, achieving a combination of highest possible DR while compensating for HDR motion artifacts and providing an end-to-end, camera ready full ISP.

Having the highest DR and a Denali-MC ISP in a camera system can be the difference in capturing unusable video and capturing the highest possible recognition quality video in any scene, any time of day, 24/7.

React! IP Core Within the Denali-MC HDR ISP Provides Unique HDR Video and Concurrant HDR Still Image Capture

React!’s powerful capture IP has the capability to provide a 1080p/60, real-world 100 dB video stream and without disruption, it concurrantly produces full resolution, HDR still images that are selectable for interval, duration and resolution. The parameters can be pre-selected and then automated into the system.

For machine vision applications, the React! IP core doesn’t require additional frame grabber boards or extra vision processors, which add cost to any system. React! utilizes the host logic for processing.

For Intelligent Traffic Systems, React! and the Denali-MC HDR ISP with 100 dB range and low illumination capabilities, provides enhanced video data for analytics algorithms to better recognize a triggering event such as a collision. This can initiate React! to start concurrant HDR video and HDR still image capture at pre-programmed intervals, duration and resolution to provide the most comprehensive visual record of the event.

For surveillance applications, React! can also be used in conjunction with recognition and provide the ability to be pro-active in engaging law enforcement and provide the most complete visual evidence package available for arrest and prosecution.
