The MPEG4cPCI is a 4-channel MPEG-4 codec on a 3U CompactPCI form factor module. The MPEG4cPCI provides a high performance solution for capturing and compressing up to 4 concurrent analog video inputs to MPEG-4 at full resolution and full frame rates. The MPEG4cPCI not only provides MPEG-4 compression but can also decompress and playback recordings from storage to display. Utilizing the 32-bit PCI architecture, the MPEG4cPCI enables 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 high performance MPEG-4 video data compression and reduced bus utilisation allows multiple MPEG4cPCI cards to be fitted in a CompactPCI system for multi-channel video recording and streaming applications.
The MPEG4cPCI is supported by a suite of drivers for Windows-2000/XP/XP-Embedded, Linux and QNX.
