Compression Board Suits Mobile Video Surveillance

Multipix Imaging has launched the Euresys 4 video input capture and H.264 compression board, targeting mobile video-surveillance applications. The Picolo U4 board also features high-quality audio capabilities. Each video input simultaneously delivers a compressed and an uncompressed video stream, leading to a total of eight video streams delivered. The compressed video stream may be recorded or transmitted, while the uncompressed one is typically used for local display or video analytics.

Both streams are independently configurable. Thanks to a high resistance to extreme temperatures, shocks, vibrations and humidity, the Picolo U4 H.264 PCI-104 is suitable for embedded security systems for rail and road transportation, police vehicles equipment or any mobile or outdoor video-surveillance application. The ruggedised characteristics of the board are also targeted at the video-surveillance systems installed in extreme industrial environments.

The Picolo U4 H.264 PCI-104 is a PCI-104 board that, for system integration, implements eight general-purpose input/output lines, an onboard watchdog and a pass-through buffered video output with cascade capability. To operate the Picolo U4 H.264 PCI-104, a Directshow filters interfaces for Windows and a Virtual File System driver for Linux either in 32-bit or 64-bit is provided.
