Fivercam Wiki information:

Processor Type: An image processor is an essential electronic component that is akin to the “brains” of the camera. It controls the camera to a high degree, from how it functions to how it depicts and records images. Canon's DIGIC image processor was developed in-house, and is specifically tailored to address the needs of a camera. It is good to have a camera with good processor!
