Omek’s middleware utilizes the distributed architecture of the OMAP3530, running background subtraction and skeleton tracking on the DSP, and the gesture recognition layer on the ARM processor. Omek’s implementation on the OMAP3530 works with all of the major depth sensors and cameras, giving device manufacturers a flexible solution for building products that can run gesture-enabled graphical user interfaces, applications and games without taxing other processors in those devices.
Game and application developers can utilize Omek’s Shadow Development Suite™ to build software and graphical user interfaces (GUIs) for devices incorporating the OMAP3530, as well as for personal computers (PCs) and other supported platforms. The Shadow Suite provides support for a wide range of development environments and operating systems and provides rapid development tools for defining gestures for use in applications.
"Getting natural user interface applications to customers quickly is essential for leadership in this market," said Jean-Marc Darchy, C6000 new end equipments manager, TI. "Omek and TI have a technology that works with many types of applications, and with any camera. Most importantly, Omek understands that rapid development tools are necessary, and is providing them now. New, innovative applications require rapid learning of new movements. We consider Omek a leader in showing how easy it can be to develop natural user interface applications in this new world."
The addition of gesture-based interfaces into televisions, set-top boxes, game consoles and other consumer electronics devices is creating entirely new platforms for developers of games and applications. Gesture recognition and body tracking are being utilized by Omek’s network of developers in areas as far-ranging as games, fitness, physical therapy, simulations, arcade gaming, interactive digital signs and public information displays.
