The Myriad multimedia processing platform, which has been designed and developed by firm Movidius, features a new architecture that is built to perform particularly well when paired with Google's Android operating system.
Amongst the functions that Myriad enables are video editing, 3D imaging and high definition video playback. Movidius hopes that with these advanced features more manufacturers will be able to work with its platform and offer some unique functions to help them shine in an increasingly busy marketplace.
High quality video capture seems to be the most significant feature boasted by Myriad, as Movidius Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Sean Mitchell emphasises that, with the processing power on offer, the platform "can help to compensate for such things as poor low-light performance."
Although Android-based mobiles are to be the main target of Myriad, its architecture could well turn up in other gadgets including camcorders and digital cameras, allowing improved reduction of image blurring amongst other things.
Mr Mitchell highlighted the fact that Myriad can operate with dual native camera interfaces and is compatible with a wide variety of video file formats, which should make it a highly versatile platform.
