The Condor VC100 XMC Series products are rugged video capture and compression cards that have been designed for use in various applications such as surveillance, image detection, video recording, unmanned vehicles (UAV) and other camera based video recording/analysis applications. A brochure for the VC100 Series boards is available here new_small.gif.

These XMC form factor video capture cards support up to 4 video inputs (2 SDI, 4 × Composite Video or 1 × SDI + 2 × Composite Video). The various input formats (HD-SDI, SD-SDI, NTSC/PAL/RS-170) are selectable through an easy-to-use API. Depending upon product variant, inputs are handled either through front connectors, rear PMC (Pn4) or XMC (Pn6) I/O connectors, or through board-mounted cables or connectors for ease of use. For the various product configurations, download the PDF. For product customizations, please contact us.

The Condor VC100 XMC Series XMC video capture cards offer H.264 encoding in hardware, minimizing CPU usage. Video data is captured and stored in files. This data is available to customer applications for processing, analysis or display on a local graphics card. The Condor VC100 XMC Series also supports the transfer of the video stream via RTP/RTSP/UDP for remote display of captured data. Two stereo audio inputs can also be captured through SDI or line in and can be synced to the video input. A full SDK is provided to manage captured video and audio data.
The Condor VC100x is the first variant in the series. It performs H.264 encoding and provides the compressed video streams to the host machine over PCIe. The stream can be sent out from the host machine's Ethernet ports (streaming) or saved to a file (recording). A product brochure for the VC100x is available here.

The Condor VC102x captures SDI and composite video signals and sends the uncompressed raw video data over × 4 PCIe (XMC Pn5) to the host while also providing two onboard 1 Gb Ethernet outputs for the H.264 compressed video streams. This allows for both real time viewing with low latency and remote viewing with low bandwidth at the same time. 2 × SDI, 1 × SDI + 2 × Composite Video or 4 × Composite Video inputs can be streamed out from the onboard Ethernet outputs at the same time. 2 × SDI or 2 × Composite Video inputs can be captured as raw data and sent to the host over the × 4 PCIe bus (XMC Pn5) for immediate display or video analysis. A product brochure for the Condor VC102x is available here.

The Condor VC100 XMC Series is available in various ruggedized levels and has conduction or convection cooled variants. Both Front and Rear I/O variants are available. Windows or Linux drivers are available by default and other real time operating systems (RTOS) such as VxWorks, Integrity and LynxOS may be optionally supported on both x86 and PowerPC platforms.

EIZO Rugged Solutions has provided graphics solutions for over 25 years and has always met customer needs. The products come with EIZO Rugged Solutions’ commitment of availability for up to 7 years along with the excellent support from EIZO Rugged Solutions’ technical team.
