Ambarella today introduced the A9 camera System on Chip (SoC) with support for the new 4K Ultra HD video standard. In addition to 4K at 30fps, the A9 supports high frame-rate video for capturing fast-action sports with 1080p video at 120fps or 720p video at 240fps. The A9 includes dual core ARMR CortexT-A9 CPUs providing the performance required for advanced applications including wireless connectivity to smartphones for video streaming or image sharing. “The A9 unleashes 4K Ultra HD video into the consumer camera marketplace,” said Fermi Wang, president & CEO of Ambarella. “Using A9, our customers can create camera products with a unique combination of advanced fast-action video features, exceptional still image quality, and full wireless connectivity.” Multi-exposure HDR imaging support, electronic image stabilisation with rolling shutter correction and fast continuous shooting are all supported by the new Ambarella SoC, making it an attractive option for manufacturers of next-generation digital cameras.
