Advanced Micro Peripherals has introduced an eight channel H.264 codec for CompactPCI systems. The H.264-cPCI8 provides a powerful and flexible solution for capturing and compressing up to eight analogue SD composite video inputs at full size and at full frame rate to the H.264/MPEG-4 AVC compression standard.
The board not only provides H.264 compression but can also simultaneously decompress and replay recordings from storage to display. This board allows high quality real-time video and audio capture and compression from NTSC/PAL video sources to disk. It also provides an uncompressed video channel for on-screen preview or optional downstream video analytics.
The high-performance H.264 video data compression and efficient bus utilisation allow multiple H264-cPCI8 cards within a CompactPCI system for multi-channel video recording and streaming applications.
The H.264-cPCI8 is well suited for applications including vehicle cameras, law enforcement, multi-camera systems, video acquisition, and analysis and situational awareness environments.
