The MathWorks’ new ‘Video and Image Processing Blockset’ extends the company’s Simulink software with basic primitives and advanced algorithms to help developers with the design, simulation, implementation and verification of embedded video and image processing systems.
To do so, the Blockset itself has built-in block libraries that provide two-dimensional (2-D) filters, conversions, geometric transformations, morphological operations, 2-D transforms, and input/output (I/O) capabilities.
In addition, it supports floating- and fixed-point data types for modelling, simulation, and C-code generation.
It also provides analysis and statistical functions to enable models to be optimised and debugged. These functions include video displays, scopes, and other techniques for visualising the image and video data as well as validating simulation results.
The Video and Image Processing Blockset is available immediately for Microsoft Windows UNIX/Linux, and Macintosh platforms.
US list prices start at $1,000.
