Video Compression Module with Enhanced Connectivity and Flexibility
Page 1 of 1
A rugged high definition video compression XMC module allows very high quality moving images to be captured, transmitted and stored with very low latency and with minimal consumption of precious bandwidth or disk space—meaning that actionable information is received more quickly and efficiently.
The ICS-8580 from GE Intelligent Platforms includes base level support for Camera Link, a serial communication protocol standard designed for computer vision applications based on the National Semiconductor interface. This allows seamless connection between the ICS-8580 and Camera Link-enabled high resolution cameras, and means that the module can be configured to support almost any camera input and system configuration.
Also new for the ICS-8580 is support for IPv6, the Internet Protocol that will ensure the longevity of IP-based networking by allowing a significantly larger number of the IP addresses on which the Internet is based. This is in addition to the ICS-8580’s support of IPv4.
The ICS-8580 can capture video inputs and archive or stream them over Ethernet, managing multiple streams and performing capture, manipulation, conversion, compression, storage, decompression and video display. It is rugged, compact, lightweight and consumes little power, enabling it to be easily deployed in systems destined for deployment in harsh environments that are constrained by size, weight and power (SWaP).
The ICS-8580 features H.264 video compression/decompression (codec) technology, which is widely regarded as being the optimum solution. It is considered to be up to three times as efficient as other codec solutions, allowing vital image detail to be retained while occupying the minimum possible bandwidth or storage.
