Fast path from MIPI CSI to HDMI using MCIMX8M-EVK?

I'm trying to determine if the i.MX 8MQ is suitable for our needs which involve streaming video from two MIPI CSI cameras to an HDMI output.  The MCIMX8M-EVK evaluation kit seems to suit this purpose nicely, with dual CSI inputs and "out of the box" HDMI output (at least with the default pre-built Android software). There is also an available MIPI-CSI camera module from NXP (MINISASOCSI). 

 

However, I have downloaded the sample code for the EVK and I don't see any CSI example code (perhaps I overlooked it or it is a separate download).  Also, it seems this processor/board is not supported by MCUXpresso, so I will have to either build a development environment around ARM GCC or purchase IAR Embedded Workbench.

 

Questions:

  • Is there example code to go from MIPI-CSI to HDMI with the MCIMX8M-EVK?  If so, where? 
  • Is there a better evaluation kit option from NXP for this purpose?  (Perhaps one that is supported by MCUXpresso.)

 

Thanks,

Jon
