MtekVision Announces High Performance 8-Megapixel Image Signal Processor

New ISP Camera Technology Offers Industry-leading Image Processing for Mobile Phones

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA--(Marketwire - April 21, 2009) - MtekVision Co. Ltd., a fabless semiconductor company and leader in mobile multimedia technology, today announced the MV9335, a high-performance image signal processor (ISP), supporting up to 8MP image resolution. In addition to providing significant cost, size, image quality and performance advantages over existing ISP chips the MV9335 is the first MtekVision Camera Signal Processor (CSP) chip to offer advanced image detection.

The MV9335 is a highly cost-effective ISP combined with high-end digital camera functions such as face detection, scene detection, 2x digital zoom, and digital image stabilization. Powerful image processing functions such as noise filtering, edge enhancement, color correction and adaptive luminance ensure exceptional image quality. The device also performs real-time JPEG encoding reducing image capture time and supports various output formats in order to easily interface to a wide variety of application and baseband processors. MV9335 also has a MIPI DSI interface and parallel interface to ensure it can interface to a wide range of image sensors. Its competitive cost is the result of using a proprietary technique to eliminate the need for a large frame buffer and using optimized hardwired implementations for the new advanced digital camera functions.

"MtekVision's MV9335 provides users with the ultimate experience in mobile phone imaging. Our award-winning ISP technology provides significant advantages over competing products by providing 2x faster preview, more rapid and robust face detection, 20% reduction in power consumption and lower cost by eliminating the need for large frame buffer memory that competitor solutions use," said Joseph Choi, CTO of MtekVision. "We are already seeing high demand for this product in 5MP and 8MP camera phones and expect over the next three years 20 million units to be sold."
