Nowadays it is more and more easier to create embedded systems, that capable of real-time processing of image data from cameras and camera clusters. So it is possible to create small and low-powered devices, and realize image and video processing functions efficiently.
The real-time capture, compression and storage of video signals is a significant task of such systems. With the help of modern System-On-Chip devices and the recent video encoding algorithms these functions are realizable.
The goal of my thesis was to build a device, which has a task of recording video signals on a storage unit. I implemented the task in two parts, the first part was to create a prototype device from a developer board, and with it I implemented the required software parts. In the second part I designed the schematic and layout of a customized panel, what can realize the main goal
With the prototype device I tested performance of the prevalent video encoding algorithms, to find out which works best with the given configuration.
