We would like to know if the leopardboard with 5M camera module can give us 12fps or more on 720p?
if yes, anybody have ever tested the maximum framerate on 720p.
The 5M camera has been tested with Aptina demo kit for 720p 60fps mode.
Due to the limitation of DM365, the Linux driver only supports up to 720p 30fps.
Is this due to Linux or the amount of processing required? I'm looking for minimum of 60fps what camera module would work the best with the DM365?
The 5M sensor has the highest date throughput among all these sensors. The reason that the driver sets only up to 720p 30fps is that DM365 can encode H.264 720p 30fps. But actually its video front end supports up to 120Mhz clock, which means DM365 can capture very fast.
The clock speed of the 5M camera output can be easily changed in the driver.
The goal is to be able to store the video onto the SD card using MPEG4 and send out 20fps or lower via usb to 802.11g adapter...
But I guess encoding the signal, the amount of processing required to do this is the issue and not the bandwidth?
I'm trying to create a simple recorder using MPEG4 to store data and stream the stream over USB at a slower rate...
but at 60fps.
If you want 720p 60fps MPEG4 or H.264, you will have to wait for the next generation of DM365, which will be announced from TI very soon ...
Thanks so much . Really appreciate your help
is the driver for the 5MP now open source?
is there any video sample of the 5MP at 720p 30FPS h264 output ?
why are these questions *never* answered ? :( it looks like no one actually use the 5MP camera (or any camera other than the VGA one)
So, then the the leopard board then would use this chip?
This 5M sensor driver is open source (Linux kernel 2.6.18), and there will be a video loop back demo available in the SDK. It shows how to capture 720p image from the sensor and display it real time on the DVI port. We don't have H.264 demo at this moment yet. I hope someone could make one here.
For Leopardboard 355, Ridgerun SDK is based on Linux 2.6.29, so the 5M open source driver need some changes to fit in. the VGA driver is a good reference for porting the 5M driver.
as long as the complete driver is available for 2.6.18 porting it to newer kernels is no big deal for me, writing from scratch without specs was the issue.
The video demo would be greatly appreciated
So, then the the leopard board then would use this chip? I saw a new high end chip...
still no video demos from anyone?
seems to me none of the people having a 5MP camera has been able to capture video or something.. or is the quality that bad?
I'm also interested in evaluating the Leopardboard + 5 MP (Aptina MT9P031) sensor for some simple real-time processing: change detection, tracking, etc. I'm not interested in video encoding or display, and am only curious to see at what speed I can reliably transfer the images into user memory for processing. The Aptina specs suggest the sensor is capable of 14 fps at full resolution. I haven't found any posts or other information that pertain to the maximum achievable frame rate in this scenario (i.e., not 720p). Any answers on this one?
