Socionext Collaborates with GoPro on GP1 Image Signal Processor, the Magic Behind HERO6 Black
Langen/Germany, 2. October, 2017 - Socionext Inc., a leading provider of SoC-based imaging solutions, today announced it has co-developed a powerful, efficient new image signal processor (ISP) based on Socionext’s Milbeaut® technology to power GoPro’s just-released HERO6 Black camera.
Socionext and GoPro collaborated on the design and development of GP1, the new custom processor. The HERO6 Black supports 4K/60fps video and 12MP photos, and delivers an extraordinary user experience with advanced stabilization and low power usage. With 4K/60fps, the requirements for the ISP have become more demanding since it must handle much higher amounts of data in real time with lower power. GP1 meets the fast-growing need for high definition and exceptional photo and video image quality in cameras.
