Morpho’s MovieSolid and Morpho Video WDR Now Available on Cadence Tensilica Imaging/Vision DSPs

SAN JOSE, Calif., November 11, 2015—Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS) and Morpho, Inc. (TSE Mothers: 3653) today announced that Morpho’s MovieSolid® and Morpho Video WDR are now available on the Cadence® Tensilica® Vision P5 digital signal processor (DSP). Ported by vision industry experts at Morpho, these products make it much easier for designers to offer applications with advanced stabilization and image-correction capabilities with lower power consumption.

MovieSolid is an embedded software program for stabilizing videos. It utilizes SOFTGYRO® for detecting motions accurately between consecutive image frames and correcting them in up to six degrees of freedom including pitch, yaw, back/forth and rolling in different directions. MovieSolid can also correct geometric distortions, which can be caused by complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) sensors. Coupled with an accelerometer and a GYRO sensor, MovieSolid can obtain better stabilization with less computational resources and lower power consumption. Morpho Video WDR is an embedded software program for correcting the dynamic range of colors and adjusting the brightness of an image. This software can estimate the dynamic range of colors from a single image, apply a local tone mapping over the entire image and globally correct the brightness from the estimated dynamic range of colors using two different modes as predefined parameter settings. These settings are natural (close to human perception of colors) and artistic (more dramatic effects). To learn more about Morpho’s products/technologies, visit http://www.morphoinc.com/en/.

The Tensilica Vision P5 DSP was designed for the complex algorithms in imaging, video and computer vision applications including innovative multi-frame image capture, video pre- and post-processing, object and face recognition, low-light enhancement and many other complex tasks.
