The Condor VC102x is a rugged XMC card that supports high definition (HD) or standard definition (SD) raw video capture and H.264/MJPEG video compression. The versatile card serves as a frame grabber as well as a H.264 encoder.
Condor VC102x provides raw video to the host machine over PCIe with extremely low latency to allow for real time viewing, processing, analysis or display from a local graphics card. Either two HD/SD-SDI or two composite video inputs can be captured as raw data at the same time.
The card simultaneously does hardware based H.264 encoding and sends the encoded streams to two 1Gb Ethernet ports on the board for streaming to a local or remote location. The video streams are available as RTP/RTSP/UDP or can be recorded to a file on the host machine. VC102x supports streaming of two HD/ SD-SDI or four composite video inputs at the same time. It also supports a combination of one HD/SD-SDI and two composite video inputs. This XMC form factor card is designed for use in various applications such as surveillance, image detection, video recording, unmanned vehicles (UAV) and other camera based video recording and analysis. VC102x also accepts 2 stereo audio inputs that are synced with the video stream.
The board has low power consumption (˜10W) that makes it ideal for applications such as UAVs and other systems where SWAP (size, weight and power) considerations are critical. The hardware compression minimizes CPU usage.
Various video input formats (NTSC/PAL/RS-170/SD-SDI/HD-SDI) are selectable through an API. A full SDK is provided to manage captured video and audio data. Condor VC102x is available in various levels of ruggedization and has convection or conduction cooled variants.
