MPEG104 MPEG-1 Video and Audio Encoder

MPEG104� PC/104-Plus MPEG-1 Encoder Especially Designed for Live Video Encoding Applications Where Rugged Environmental Conditions and Space Constraints Exist

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH - February 11, 2004 - Parvus� Corporation today unveiled its MPEG104� board, a PC/104-Plus form factor MPEG-1 encoder, capable of capturing high-quality analog video and audio streams, encoding them in compressed MPEG-1, M-JPEG or JPEG formats, and sending them to a host computer over a 32-bit PCI bus.

FEATURES

This compact PC/104-Plus module is based around the high-performance Winbond� W99200F video encoder and supports up to four (4) composite video (CVBS) inputs and one (1) stereo audio input at full NTSC or PAL frame rates. It can also accept either two S-Video (Y/C) or two composite and one Y/C input sources.

The card integrates four reprogrammable general-purpose digital I/O channels for system control, as well as a 2MB SDRAM frame buffer for storing single frames or video snap shots of incoming video. It encodes pictures in IBP syntax at both SIF and QSIF resolutions at up to 30 frames/second and supports single fame sizes up to 720 x 576 pixels.
