Tech Source Unveils Condor VC100xX Fully Conduction Cooled H.264 XMC Video Encoder Card

  • The low power (7 Watt) Condor VC100xX delivers high profile H.264 stream quality video at a low bit-rate to support rugged rear I/O surveillance (C4ISR) applications

Altamonte Springs, Florida, September 10, 2015 – Tech Source, Inc., an independent supplier of high performance embedded video, graphics and high end computing solutions, has unveiled the low power (7 Watt) Condor™ VC100xX H.264 high quality video capture and compression card.

This rugged and fully conduction-cooled card is the perfect addition to the Condor VC100 Series and simplifies the video compression task in challenging surveillance/C4ISR applications using the VPX Platform.

The XMC form factor module, featuring an H.264 video encoder with baseline, main and high profile support up to Level 4.1, supports up to 4 composite video inputs (NTSC/PAL/SECAM) or up to 2 SDI inputs (HD-SDI/SD-SDI), all of which are selectable through the provided API. Condor VC100xX also has 2 stereo or 4 mono audio inputs.

The Condor VC100xX card performs H.264 encoding in hardware to minimize CPU usage. Exceptionally high quality video data is captured and stored in files and made available to customer applications for processing, analysis or display on a local graphics card. The Condor VC100xX also supports transfer of the video stream via UDP or TCP/IP using RTP and RTSP protocols for remote display of captured data with low latency.

Selwyn L. Henriques, president and CEO of Tech Source Inc., said: “This fully conductioncooled low power VC100xX card consumes just 7 Watts of power yet still delivers high profile H.264 stream quality video at a low bit-rate to support customers with rugged rear I/O surveillance applications.”

Tech Source offers a number of variants in its VC100 family including the VC102, which, in addition to video encoding, captures raw video and features dual Ethernet outputs.
