Ambarella H1 - 4K 60fps H.264/AVC and 30fps H.265/HEVC

Sports and Flying Camera SoC

The Ambarella H1 Sports and Flying Camera SoC supports 4K Ultra HD H.264 video encoding at 60 frames per second for high­speed live-action recording with smooth slow-motion capabilities. The H1 also supports the new H.265/HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) video standard for 4K Ultra HD encoding at up to 30 frames per second, providing higher image quality at lower bitrates as well as faster video uploads and higher resolution video streaming.

A new generation of Image Sensor Pipeline (ISP) with High Dynamic Range (HDR) processing delivers high quality video and high megapixel photos even under extreme lighting conditions. The SoC also includes advanced Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) for stable video recording during windy or high motion conditions.

The Ambarella H1 integrates a hardware de-­warping engine supporting 360‐degree panoramic cameras. In addition to 4K Ultra HD encoding, it also supports 1440p (QHD) video at 120 frames per second and 1080p video at 240 frames per second, for smooth slow‐motion playback. The integration of a 1.2 GHz dual-­core ARM® Cortex®-­A9 CPU with floating point and NEON™ provides significant processing power for customer applications including analytics and wireless networking. Its USB host provides connectivity with 4G/LTE solutions.
