Performance of i.MX8mq and i.MX8 processor for image capture

In our medical product, we have a IMX334 camera which is capturing bayer RAW image with variable resolution and is sending data to i.mx8 on MIPI-CSI.


  1. i.MX8 series processor(8mq or 8) will do debayering, Noise Reduction, White Balance the Histogram equalization on the captured feed using the ISP.  
  2. i.MX8 will encode the feed and send it to an android phone over network interface. 


Regarding performance,


Will the i.MX8mq or i.MX8 processor will be able to do all the image processing operations shown in point. 1 and 2 on 2160 x 2160 image resolution and will we be able to achieve 30 fps? 


if the processor is not able to provide 2160 x 2160, Will the processor be able to process the image with 1080 x 1080 resolution for 30 fps? 


Also, I understand that above mentioned are the custom resolutions, So does the ISP and encoder supports custom resolutions or it only supports standard resolutions?


Thanks in advance,
