Image Matters And PathPartner Team For Facial Detection

Video machine learning specialists PathPartner will be integrating its H.265/HEVC decoder with facial detection into the origami B20 Module of Image Matters.

“PathPartner’s unique expertise and novel approach are a powerful addition to the origami Ecosystem”, said Jean-François Nivart, CEO of Image Matters. “We are pleased with their collaboration and look forward to giving OEM’s and System Integrators access to an unprecedented offer for HEVC codecs and object detection”.

“Disruptive innovations usually come from outside the industry and Image Matters’ ingenious origami Ecosystem lowers the barrier to entry for newcomers”, said Ramkishor Korada, PathPartner’s global head for sales and business development. “Modularity is key to fast, reliable integration, and our vision-based machine learning and H.265/HEVC FPGA IP-cores deliver new levels of feature rich capabilities for the media industry. We envision to provide our licensable IP-cores and design services to a whole new host of system designers and product makers.”

The face detection IP-core optimized for the Xilinx Kintex Ultrascale 060 is an example of outside innovation benefiting broadcasters, he said. “Ideally suited to the Image Matters B20 module, OEM’s and System Integrators will be able to deliver facial detection during live broadcasts to assist with monitoring and rich meta-data creation and logging.”

Image Matters is the founder of the Origami Ecosystem, a marketplace for hardware product range and pre-validated IP-Cores from many collaborating vendors.
