Fujitsu announces 6th Generation of Milbeaut Imaging Processor

Fujitsu today announced the development of MB91696AM, the newest model in the Milbeaut series of advanced imaging processors. Fujitsu MB91696AM represents the sixth generation of the Milbeaut image processing algorithm, which has been widely adopted due to its high reliability, allowing both high-speed continuous shooting at 8 frames per second (at a 14 megapixel resolution) and higher video quality. MB91696AM is equipped with a newly-developed Full HD H.264 codec engine, enabling clear, low-noise recording of high-resolution Full Hi-Vision movies (1920 X 1080 pixels).

Milbeaut is an image processor that has been widely adopted in digital cameras, mobile phone cameras and other devices since its release in 2000. The processor is equipped with two ARM processors, an industry-standard CPU core, and features continuous photography performance approximately five times that of previous Fujitsu products. Samples of the new model will begin shipping in April 2011.
