Ambarella, Inc., a developer of low-power, HD video compression and image processing semiconductors, announced that it is partnering with Google to demonstrate a wearable camera reference design during the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Jan. 7-10.
According to a release, Ambarella's new reference design enables small form factor wearable cameras that allow users complete mobility during a Helpouts session. The camera can record full HD video while simultaneously streaming live video wirelessly to the Google Helpouts server via a smartphone or Wi-Fi access point. Using Ambarella's A7LW camera SoC, the camera stabilizes video.
"Helpouts allow people to get expert advice in real time over video," said Udi Manber, Vice President of Engineering at Google. "With easy-to-use wearable cameras, the other person sees what you see, and the interaction becomes efficient and simple."
"We are delighted to be working with Google and look forward to enabling Helpouts on our new wearable camera platform," said Fermi Wang, CEO of Ambarella. "The result will be a new class of camera that enables teachers and trainees to interact in an entirely new way."
