Description:

libXCam is a project for extended camera features and focus on image quality improvement and video analysis. There are lots features supported in image pre-processing, image post-processing and smart analysis. This library makes GPU/CPU/ISP working together to improve image quality. OpenCL is used to improve performance in different platforms.

Features:

  • Image processing features
    • Advanced features
      • Automotive surround view(360) stitching (OpenCL/CPU/GLES)
        • Support bowl view 3D model stitching by 4 video input.
        • Enable geometry remap for WFoV camera calibration(intrinsic and extrinsic data).
        • Quality and performance improved (OpenCL/CPU/GLES).
        • CPU version upstreamed into AOSP for automotive surround view.
        • Enable Vulkan to improve performance.
      • 360 video stitching (Equirectangular mode via OpenCL/CPU)
        • Support 8K 3-cameras video stream stitching.
        • Support 2-fisheye (>180 degree) video stream stitching.
        • Performance and quality improved.
      • DNN inference framework
        • Support pedestrian and vehicle detection.
      • Digital Video Stabilization
        • OpenCV feature-matched based video stabilization.
        • gyroscope 3-DoF (orientation) based video stabilization.
      • Blender: multi-band blender (OpenCL/CPU/GLES)
      • Noise reduction (OpenCL)
        • adaptive NR based on wavelet-haar and Bayersian shrinkage.
        • 3D-NR with inter-block and intra-block reference.
        • wavelet-hat NR (obsolete).
      • Wide dynamic range (WDR) (OpenCL)
        • histogram adjustment tone-mapping.
        • gaussian-based tone-mapping (obsolete).
      • Fog removal: retinex and dark channel prior algorithm (OpenCL)
        • dark channel prior algorithm based defog.
        • multi-scale retinex based defog (obsolete).
    • Basic pipeline from bayer to YUV/RGB format (OpenCL / AtomISP)
      • Gamma correction, MACC, color space, demosaicing, simple bilateral noise reduction, edge enhancement and temporal noise reduction.
    • 3A features
      • Auto whitebalance, auto exposure, auto focus, black level correction, color correction, 3a-statistics calculation.
  • Support 3rd party 3A lib which can be loaded dynamically
    • hybrid 3a plugin.
  • Support 3a analysis tuning framework for different features
  • Support smart analysis framework
    • Face detection interface/plugin.
  • Enable gstreamer plugin
    • xcamsrc, capture from usb/isp camera, process 3a/basic/advanced features.
    • xcamfilter, improve image quality by advanced features and smart analysis.

Prerequisite:

  • install gcc/g++, automake, autoconf, libtool, gawk, pkg-config
  • Linux kernel > 3.10
  • install ocl-icd-dev, ocl-icd-opencl-dev
  • If --enable-gst, need install libgstreamer1.0-dev, libgstreamer-plugins-base1.0-dev
  • If --enable-aiq, need get ia_imaging lib which we don't support
  • If --enable-libcl, need compile or install OpenCL driver
  • If --enable-opencv, suggest OpenCV versions [3.0.0 - 4.0.0) (or: OpenCV Wiki)
  • If --enable-render, need compile OpenSceneGraph library with configure option "-DOSG_WINDOWING_SYSTEM=X11"
  • If --enable-gles, need to install Mesa3D library
  • If --enable-vulkan, need to install Mesa3D library
  • If --enable-dnn, need to compile OpenVino inference-engine

Building and installing:

  • Environment variable settings
    For different --prefix options, the environment variables may be different. Please set the environment variable according to the actual situation.
    --prefix=/usr/local:

    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib/:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
    export GST_PLUGIN_PATH=/usr/local/lib/gstreamer-1.0:$GST_PLUGIN_PATH
    

    --prefix=/usr:

    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
    export GST_PLUGIN_PATH=/usr/lib/gstreamer-1.0:$GST_PLUGIN_PATH
    
  • $ ./autogen.sh [options]

    --prefix=PREFIX         install architecture-independent files in PREFIX [default=/usr/local]
    --enable-debug          enable debug, [default=no]
