Sports & VR Cameras

Sports Cameras


Whether mounted on a quadcopter or worn while skiing, our devices are required to perform complex image enhancement functions, adapt to ever-changing lighting conditions, communicate wirelessly with smartphones on-the-fly, and enable intelligent editing and content selection.

We address the demanding requirements of the sports camera market by offering products that combine exquisite video and image quality, smart editing and automated sharing, low power consumption, and best-in-class compression efficiency.

VR Cameras


With Ambarella’s VR technologies, consumers are able to capture pristine 360-degree video using small form factor, mass market camera devices and stream the footage live to social media sites at resolutions typically reserved for professional applications.

Thanks to an available on-chip stitching unit, Ambarella is able to smoothly and seamlessly fuse the outputs of multiple sensors into a single 360-degree spherical video in real time at extremely low power, enabling instant share and live broadcast at 4K/UHD resolutions. Augmented reality features such as object recognition allow graphical information to be overlaid onto video footage of the real world, further enhancing the viewing experience.

Wearable Cameras

Professional Wearable Cameras


Professions such as law enforcement demand the use of hands-free, body-worn video cameras to document everyday events on the job.

These cameras have numerous potential benefits: they can improve training outcomes, reduce liability, create a valuable evidentiary record, simplify documentation, and increase accountability to those being served.

Ambarella’s computer vision solutions enhance our wearable camera applications even further with features such as face detection/recognition, emergency event response, automatic event-based recording, augmented reality, heads-up display capabilities, and more.

Consumer Wearable Cameras


As hands-free video recording and sharing have become commonplace, so has the use of compact, wearable camera devices to document everything from our most memorable moments to our daily life routines.

Ambarella designs lightweight, low-power, wirelessly connected cameras with sleek and attractive form factors, incorporating advanced computer vision features such as smart editing and content sharing, augmented reality, and automatic event-based recording.

Broadcast Infrastructure Solutions

The Highest-Quality Compression Technologies Available


In the video infrastructure business, Ambarella provides encoder solutions for television broadcast head-ends, transcoders, and video contribution systems.

Television service providers face the challenge of providing an increasing number of high-quality HD television channels within the limited bandwidth available from cable, satellite or IP networks. To remain competitive and profitable, broadcasters must utilize the most efficient and highest-quality compression technology available. Ambarella encoder solutions not only provide this, but also enable real-time transcoding between video formats to deliver the optimal video resolution and format required by different playback device types, such as televisions, PCs, smart-phones and tablets.

Video Encoding up to 4K Ultra-HD Resolution


Ambarella provides a flexible platform to increase the quality and density of video transcoders and video contribution systems. Video contribution systems transmit video from remote sources, such as satellite news gathering units, to broadcast studios, or from broadcast studios to uplink centers or cable head-ends.

Ambarella’s technology is capable of simultaneously decoding and re-encoding four full HD channels, eight 720p HD channels or twenty standard-resolution SD channels. It can also encode video up to 4K Ultra-HD resolution.
