The biggest challenge for modern video surveillance is to not miss any event in the survey area. The most common causes of missing important events, which may result in security breach, are dangerous blind spots in surveillance installation and human oversights due to system complexity and overwhelming amount of information gathered by surveillance cameras.
Xylon demo at AMD TSC, June 2012

Video surveillance multi-head camera with no blind spots that shows 360° view (Panoramic View
) of the surroundings is one of Xylon's latest developments. The demo setup uses 3x 1MP (Mega Pixel) imagers with wide angle lenses and Xylon logiCRAFT-CC
development board based on Xilinx Spartan®-6 FPGA to fully process captured video streams in real time. Xylon logicBRICKS IP cores
remove lens distortions (fish-eye), make perspective corrections and seamless stitching of three video streams with no dividing “borders”, and finally display the resulting panoramic 2D video image.
Surveillance system design teams can use demonstrated Xylon products as the infrastructure of an application, concentrate on differentiation and spend precious development time on advanced video processing algorithms that use video outputs from Xylon logicBRICKS IP cores.
The presented demo can be upgraded to closely fit specific requirements. logicBRICKS IP cores can be re-configured to support different camera setups, much higher video input resolutions, different interfaces with video cameras, etc. It can be adopted for series 7 AMD FPGAs and the latest AMD Zynq™ 7000 Extensible Processing Platform.
