USB Camera IN and HDMI OUT Display

Hello. I have a usb camera which I wish to interface with the development board in this manner…
-connect USB camera to board USB IN
-writing python application to some image processing based on opencv
-display the resulting image to HDMI out lcd display

Please suggest~
Best,

Hi there,

Most PYNQ supported boards, with the default image, will ship example notebooks doing exactly what you’ve described your use case to be, e.g. the opencv facedetect notebook will take a usb webcam input and stream into directly to an HDMI output…

Thanks

Hi @skalade thanks for your reply. so this would work something like…
-getting data stream via uvc usb and I can write python script on board to run and display output on hdmi lcd?

Meant to link this notebook instead: PYNQ/opencv_face_detect_webcam.ipynb at master · Xilinx/PYNQ · GitHub. There are loads of video example notebooks you can browse on the default PYNQ image.

It’s an example of what you want to do. USB webcam to hdmi output.

Thanks
Shawn
