HDMI/DVI H.264 Video Encoder for PCIe/104

The VCoderH264-HD-HDMI is a High Definition H.264 video encoder on a single PCIe/104 expansion module. The VCoderH264-HD-HDMI captures a HDMI or DVI input at up to 1080p60 and encodes it using the H.264 video compression standard. The single board solution is ideal for demanding applications in Military, Communications, Transportation, mining and Energy industries.

The VCoderH264-HD-HDMI provides AAC audio encoding in addition to the H.264 video compression. Stereo audio embedded in the input HDMI source can be captured, encoded, and synchronised with the encoded video prior to transfer over the PCIe/104 bus.

The high performance, efficient video and audio encoding allows the VCoderH264-HD-HDMI to use only a single x1 PCI Express Link. Multiple VCoderH264-HD-HDMI can be used in a PCIe/104 system to allow multiple High Definition HDMI/DVI capture channels whilst leaving the system with spare bandwidth for other peripherals and expansion modules.
