Creating On-Screen-Displays with DaVinci

TI has a video podcast to show how easy it is to create on-screen-displays (OSDs) by leveraging TI DaVinci video accelerators and TI’s eXpressDSP(TM) digital media algorithm standard.

The podcast features:

  • Technical Overview of the DVEVM
  • Overview of sample code and compression and decompression algorithms
  • Explanation of TI DaVinci Video Processing Sub-System (VPSS)
  • Creation of OSD example using GIMP (24 Bit RGB)
  • Demo of how MonteVista(TM) Linux is used to mount a hard drive on the ARM in DaVinci to save OSD graphic example
  • Run the OSD example by coping the graphic example into the video buffer using FPDEV

Note: DVEVM is short for Digital Video Evaluation Module, which enables developers to start immediate evaluation of DaVinci(TM) processors and begin building digital video applications such as videophones, automotive infotainment, digital still cameras, streaming media, IP set-top boxes, video security systems and digital video products that have yet to be invented. The DVEVM allows developers to write production-ready application code for the ARM and provides access to the DSP core using DaVinci APIs to begin immediate application development.
