4 channel MPEG-4 encoder/decoder for PC104-Plus

The MPEG4000ULP is a very low power 4-channel MPEG-4 codec on a single PC/104-Plus (pc104+) form factor module. The MPEG4000ULP serves as a high performance solution for capturing and compressing up to 4 concurrent video inputs to MPEG-4 standard. The MPEG4000ULP not only provides MPEG-4 compression but can also decompress and playback recordings from storage to display. Utilizing the 32-bit PCI architecture, the MPEG4000ULP allows high quality real-time video / audio capture and compression from (up to) 4 concurrent NTSC or PAL video sources while at the same time allowing the data stream to be stored to disk and provide a Preview screen for incoming video.

The MPEG4000XLP is supported by comprehensive and well supported software development kits (SDKs) for video recording and video streaming. The SDKs are designed to significantly reduce development time in Windows, Linux and QNX environments and include support libraries, drivers and example applications to help developers fully utilize the MPEG4000XLP features in complex video compression / overlay applications.

The standard Video Recording SDK and sample applications are supplied free of charge with each board and includes the services of our technical support team. The Video Streaming SDK is available for a one-time fee and enables real time streaming of compressed video data over an IP network.

The standard SDKs are available for x86 based embedded PC platforms however, we also offer SDKs suitable for PC/104-Plus based PowerPC and ARM platforms. Please contact our sales team to discuss your requirements.
