OMNIVISION Announces Availability of Optimized Algorithm Library for ARM Mali GPU Technology
Jan 05, 2015

TECHNOLOGY ENABLES SIGNIFICANT REDUCTIONS IN EXECUTION TIME AND POWER CONSUMPTION

SANTA CLARA, Calif., — January 5, 2015 — OMNIVISION Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: OVTI), a leading developer of advanced digital imaging solutions, today announced from the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas the immediate availability of an OpenCL optimized imaging algorithm library ideally suited for ARM® Mali™ GPUs. The library includes advanced imaging features such as 3D noise suppression, chroma noise reduction, de-fringe and de-haze and is targeted at smartphones, tablets and notebooks.

“Through our close collaboration with ARM, we have developed imaging solutions that make effective use of the heterogeneous architecture of next generation application processors containing GPU Compute capable GPUs such as the ARM Mali GPU family,” said Johnson Shan, Vice President of Software Algorithm Engineering at OMNIVISION. “The new algorithm library dramatically reduces execution time and power consumption, resulting in an enhanced user experience and extended battery life.”

“The delivery of advanced imaging solutions using ARM Mali GPUs which feature GPU compute carries the potential to redefine the mobile experience,” said Dennis Laudick, VP partner marketing, media processing group, ARM. “Industry leaders such as OMNIVISION are delivering the kind of advanced technology that can take imaging quality to a new level. At the same time, their technology can offer major benefits for OEMs and chip designers through significant cost, risk and time to market reduction.”
