H.264 Video Capture, Encoding & Streaming XMC Card

The Condor VC102x is a rugged High Definition (HD) or Standard Definition (SD) H.264/M-JPEG Encoding and Streaming card with simultaneous Raw Video Capture. This versatile XMC form factor card serves as a frame grabber as well as H.264 encoder and is designed for use in various applications such as surveillance, video recording and transmission, target tracking, unmanned vehicles (UAV) and other camera based video recording/analysis applications.

H.264 Compatible Video Capture, Encoding & Streaming

The Condor VC102x sends the captured raw video data to the host machine over PCIe with extremely low latency to allow for real time viewing, processing, analysis or display from a local graphics card. This data is available to customer applications for processing, analysis or display on a local graphics card. Video data is also compressed and delivered in an MPEGTS container to the dedicated on-board 1Gb Ethernet outputs as a UDP/RTSP stream so it can be viewed at a remote location or recorded. This card does H.264 or M-JPEG encoding in hardware to minimize CPU usage. Four composite video (CVBS) inputs or two HD/SD-SDI video inputs are supported. Various input formats (NTSC/PAL/RS-170/HD-SDI/SD-SDI) are selectable through an API. Two stereo audio and two SDI audio inputs are supported for muxing and streaming.

With low power consumption (≈10 W), this product is ideal for applications such as UAVs and other systems where SWaP (size, weight and power) considerations are critical. A full SDK is provided to manage captured video and audio data. Condor VC102x is available in various levels of ruggedization and has air or conduction cooled variants.
