|LETTER FROM THE EDITOR|
I'm pleased when I'm able to regularly pass along announcements about new Embedded Vision Alliance members, and lately I've been pretty pleased. Two weeks ago, for example, in the previous edition of Embedded Vision Insights, I mentioned that processor IP core supplier Tensilica had joined the Alliance. And this time around, I'm happy to share the news that GEO Semiconductor is the Alliance's latest membership entrant.
In early December, GEO Semiconductor had announced its intention to acquire the video processing business (PDF) of fellow Alliance member Maxim Integrated Products; the deal closed approximately one month later (PDF) and one month ago. And more generally, if you're not already familiar with GEO Semiconductor, here's what the company description on the Alliance member page says:
GEO Semiconductor is a pioneer in geometric correction for images and video. GEO’s proprietary algorithms allow for incredibly efficient, low latency transforms to correct, dewarp and calibrate video from any lens or sensor configuration. GEO’s intelligent and infinitely configurable warping engine enables embedded vision systems to capture images in an ultra-wide field of view, breaking open new opportunities for innovation in automotive, consumer and industrial markets. With the addition of the Mobilygen/Maxim H.264 video compression and human interface business in 2012, GEO added...
