Advanced Micro Peripherals has introduced the H264-ULL-PMC, an ultra low latency, dual channel, H.264 encoder on a PMC Mezzanine form factor board. The board provides a powerful and flexible solution for capturing and compressing up to 2 analogue video inputs at up to 1080p HD resolution to the H.264/MPEG-4 AVC (Part 10) standard.
The card is ideal for time-critical applications as it offers ultra low latency encoding of below 40ms across the entire capture resolution range. The H264-ULL-PMC supports dual H.264 encodes at resolutions up to 1080p30 or a single encode at 1080p60. The H.264 encoding can be flexibly configured to suit a range of bandwidth and storage requirements.
The card has two analogue HD video input channels. Each channel can be independently configured for analogue YPbPr HD, analogue RGsB (Sync on Green) or analogue VGA (separate HSync, VSync).
This H264 encoder card is also available with extended temperature range options (-40°C to +85°C) and long term availability. The card is supported on range of operating systems including Windows, Linux and QNX. It is also supported by a set of well-documented and established SDKs.
The encoder card is well suited for real-time control, UAV and other defence applications, transportation, traffic monitoring and control, video digital recording and internet streaming, and remote video surveillance.
