Video processing is ubiquitous in our everyday lives, and dates back nearly a century (electronic image transmission was first demonstrated 90 years ago). Transmission of images by digital means is 48 years old and commercial digital video 30 years old.
As we have seen management of latency in systems reliant on video sensors is a critical design driver. It is only through the use of the right tools and techniques that latency challenges can be overcome. An optimum design can be achieved through the use of powerful COTS processors, connected via efficient interfaces and running efficient software.
