Camera overlay

Post by Arcturus »

I’m not particularly experienced working with raspberry pi or arduino, so I wanted to check here and make sure that this board can do what I need it to. I’m working on a project that requires one cameras output to be overlayed over another, and standard pi boards only have one csi port. While a multiplexer could allow multiple cameras, it would also split the available bandwidth and decrease the quality of both. Would this hardware be suitable for what I’m trying to do?

Arcturus you can capture two independent streams, one for each camera. After that, you can use GStreamer or another software to overlay one video frame on another. Since CM4 computational power and GPU is limited, you should optimize these part to get the result you need.
