LONDON – DSP intellectual property licensor Ceva Inc. has teamed up with EyeSight Mobile Technologies Ltd., a developer of touch-free interface technologies for consumer electronics.
The partners will offer EyeSight's hand gesture recognition software on Ceva's MM2000 portable multimedia platform. This in turn is based on the Ceva-X1622 16-bit DSP core and an application-specific DSP accelerator subsystem, the Ceva-XS1200A.
EyeSight (Herziliya, Israel) has developed hand-gesture recognition software for any camera-enabled device and the technology is suitable for smartphones, tablet computers, eReaders, portable games consoles, digital picture frames and picoprojectors amongst other devices, Ceva said.
"The unique combination of power efficiency and high performance of the CEVA-MM2000 proved an excellent technology to provide high recognition while keeping the power consumption to a minimum," said Itay Katz EyeSight's founder and CEO, in a statement issued by Ceva (Mountain View, Calif.).
"Differentiation is key to the success of high performance multimedia SoCs and our fully programmable platform enables our multimedia customers to achieve this through our CEVAnet partners such as EyeSight or to add their own proprietary software with minimal effort," said Eran Briman, vice president of marketing at Ceva, in the same statement.
