I've come to understand that the '7 concurrent camera' support in the RB5 SoC means 2 main camera streams and 5 'lite' streams, but I'm having a hard time getting clarity on what's supported and what not.
Our end-goal is to have a 360-degree camera setup with enough overlap to do stereo disparity for depth estimation. Limited to 5 cameras this would come down to 5 modules with approx. 160 degree view angles. In one of the product pages I found a mention that the lite streams can do up to 2MP.
What I'd like to know is:
- Is the 2MP a hard '2.0' limit? Or can we use 2.3MP / 1920 x 1200, as that's a pretty common resolution for global shutter sensors?
- Can the SoC use hardware acceleration / ISP functionality for image processing of the 5 cameras?
- Can the SoC use hardware acceleration for the stereo disparity of the 5 streams?
- What framerate can the lite streams have at 2 or 2.3 MP?
