(Sunnyvale, California--October 27, 2015) Socionext America Inc., a new leader in advanced SoC design technology, is now shipping its “M-8M” series, or MB86S27, a compact image processor which is the eighth-generation product from its Milbeaut Image Processor series. The MB86S27 is equipped with a powerful Codec Engine originally developed at Socionext, and is designed for delivering high resolution 4K video. It comes with 360-degree distortion correction and other state-of-the-art image processing functionalities suitable for high quality video with devices such as surveillance cameras, drones, action cameras and drive recorders.

The MB86S27 is designed to serve the growing need for high-definition, high-quality video in a broad range of rapidly expanding applications. These include surveillance cameras that are seeing an increasing demand worldwide, drones that record in off-limit or hazardous areas, action-cameras in non-sport applications, and drive recorders effective for traffic accident investigation and their potential feasibility as an integral part of new insurance programs. In addition to 4K video capability, the device integrates hardware macros specialized for various image processing, reducing the CPU load. Power consumption is as low as 1.3W, when operating with 4K at 30 frames per second (fps). With the MB86S27, Socionext is developing and providing video-optimized platforms and firmware, as well as picture quality consulting services, delivering comprehensive solutions to customers. Socionext will continue to accelerate the evolution and growth of the Milbeaut image processor series, and deliver a broad range of imaging solutions. The MB86S27 features the following specifications:
