I am currently considering the RT1050. I would like to use the MIPI camera interface and be able to stream video over a TCP/IP connection. I am no expert on video codecs or compression but I was told that the RT1050 is not a good choice for this as it does not have a GPU - that the H.264 encoding would be too much for it. The RT1050 would seem to be a good choice for this application.
Is a GPU planned for a future RT part?
Is the processor so fast that it can perform the compression in software? If so is an H.264 C library planned?
Could you get imx rt H264 project? Where can i download can you help? It will be a good reference for me because I stuck at 20 fps when using JPEG decoding.
We ran the open source H.264 encoding/decoding on RT1050-EVK. The performance of decoding is about 40fps @ 480*272 resolution after basic memory allocation optimization. We are working on an application note but it's not published yet.
