GainSpan Corporation and OmniVision Technologies, Inc. Introduce HD Video Application Development Kit

GainSpan Corporation and OmniVision Technologies, Inc. announced a high definition Video Application Development Kit targeted at the fast-growing IOT market. Utilizing GainSpan’s low-power GS2000 Wi-Fi SOC and OmniVision’s ultra-low power, fast boot up camera solution including OV9712 and OV788, the new ADK features high-resolution and power-efficient video streaming, making it well-suited for battery-powered devices. Such devices are found in a wide variety of new and existing application market segments such as battery-operated intrusion and doorbell cameras, home automation monitoring, intercom systems, wearable electronics, remote-controlled toys/airplanes and the automotive aftermarket. A complete hardware and software reference design, the GainSpan GS2000 HD Video ADK accelerates time-to-market for customers looking to add 720p/30 HD video streaming capabilities to their products. It allows users to stream live video from an HD camera to an iOS or Android based smartphone. The new ADK leverages the key advantages of the GS2000 – high data rates supported in the 802.11 b/g/n SOC, multi-mode connectivity, extremely low standby current and low-power operation. The OmniVision OV9712 and OV788 combination features HD video encoding capabilities that result in excellent video capture in the most challenging lighting conditions. The ADK supports multiple streaming protocols including the commonly used RTP/RTSP. Additional features are planned for addition over the next few months, including cloud connectivity, 2-way audio, motion triggered video streaming and power save modes. The ADK includes embedded software compatible with iOS and Android mobile applications for smartphones and tablets. The GainSpan embedded software running on the Wi-Fi module offers complete Wi-Fi functionality and networking stack and services. It also supports a complete suite of security protocols, including WPA/WPA2-enterprise and personal security modes, legacy WEP encryption and upper layer security protocols such as TLS/SSL and HTTPs.
