Mekotranics launched LS1200 live streaming box with 4.8TOPS AI computing performance
Mekotronics has launched a new hardware platform, LS1200 live streaming box, built around MTK Genio 1200 (MT8395) processor. By harnessing the computing power capabilities of the Genio chipset, the LS1200 is well-suited for live streaming applications.
The MTK Genio 1200 targets AI workloads and feature a high-performance octa-core processor that can be clocked up to a frequency of 2.2GHz. The CPU combines 4x Arm Cortex-A78 and 4x Arm Cortex-A55 processors with a dominant frequency that provides powerful general-purpose computing capability.
The onboard graphics processor is an Arm Mali-G57 graphics engine with five cores that can handle advanced 3D graphics. All of these pair with an integrated neural processing unit (NPU) that delivers up to 4.8 TOPS performance. The power consumption of NPU is only 1% of that of GPU, and it has a very high computational power efficiency when compared to the standard large-chip GPU method used as an AI operating unit.
