Custom solutions without the NRE

When combined with our proven IP blocks, the Dragon's high performance and versatile architecture enables us to quickly create complex A/V systems. This allows us to deliver fully custom solutions with low or no design fees — even to OEMs with modest volume requirements.

Development process

Based on your requirements, Sensoray will design firmware for the Dragon that implements your desired functionality and a carrier board with the connectors and circuitry you specify and deliver the integrated solution with a flexible API. For higher volumes, Sensoray can integrate the Dragon's circuitry into a custom single board solution to further reduce size, weight and cost. A wide range of functions are available, which can be mixed and matched to provide the exact feature set you need. Popular functions include:

A/V processor functions
  • Real time text and graphics overlay
  • Low latency H.264 and JPEG video compression up to 1920x1200p30
  • High resolution JPEG snapshots
  • MP4, AVI, transport stream formatting
  • Dual asymmetric output streams
  • AAC and G.711 audio compression
  • Image stabilization
  • Frame rate decimation
  • Interlacing/deinterlacing
  • Video scaling, mirroring and rotation
System controller functions
  • IP stream server
  • File server with SD card / USB flash storage
  • HTTP server
  • Serial COM bridge
  • Remote and locally controlled GPIOs
  • Camera control server
