Ultra Low Latency Dual HD H.264 Compression Card for PCI-104

The H264-HD2000 is a low latency H.264 encoder available on a single PCI/104 form factor board. It allows system builders to easily add high definition analog and digital video capture with H.264/MPEG-4 AVC (Part 10) encoding to their embedded PC equipment designs.

The powerful encoding engine supports ultra low latency full frame rate encoding of two HD video sources at up to 1080p30. The H264-HD2000 also supports single channel encode at full 1080p60 and perform stream duplication of the Digital Video input to provide multiple encodings of the same input. This allows streams to be created at different resolution, compression settings dependent on requirements and available bandwidth.



  • Dual channel encode at up 1080p30
  • Single channel encode at up to 1080p60
  • Analog HD input (YPbPr, VGA, RGB)
  • Digital HD input (DVI,HDMI)
  • H.264/MPEG-4 AVC (Part 10) encoder
  • 40ms Ultra Low Latency technology with a latency below 40ms
  • Intra-refresh to improve bandwidth utilization
  • Multiple encodes of same input with different settings
  • Motion detection
  • Video Masking
  • Up to four H264-HD2000 boards per system
  • PCI/104 form factor
  • Drivers for WinXP-E and Linux


The H264-HD2000 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 H264-HD2000 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 SDK’s suitable for PC/104-Plusbased PowerPC and ARM platforms. Please contact our sales team to discuss your requirements.
