AMP releases H.264 HD-SDI video encoder

Advanced Micro Peripheral (AMP) has released an HDCorder-SDI, an intelligent, high definition video recording solution that accepts an HD-SDI input at up to 1080p60. It encodes it in real-time and transfers it to the host system, says AMP.

The HDCorder-SDI is implemented on a standard 3U form factor CompactPCI serial board. It is part of the range of high performance video products released by AMP for the rugged CompactPCI-Serial ecosystem.

For multi-spectral electro-optical/infra red (EO/IR) and high resolution surveillance and mission recording applications, the HDCorder-SDI can extract KLV (MSB 0605.3-compliant) meta-data embedded in the HD-SDI signal. Video, audio and metadata are synchronised, multiplexed to a STANAG-4609 compliant transport stream and streamed directly to the host system. An SDI signal monitoring output is provided.

Both Windows and Linux operating systems are supported.

The HDCorder-SDI also features optional on-board redundant storage to complement the host system’s memory and improve data integrity. The on-board cache automatically acts as a rolling buffer, holding the most recently recorded data. This storage redundancy prevents loss of mission data even when multiple HDCorder-SDIs are hosted on a single CPU and starved of its resources,

The HDCorder-SDI can support EO payloads and aerial surveillance turrets for real-time image capture and mission recording on mobile platforms including demanding environments, such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), armoured vehicles and naval vessels, says AMP.

All of AMP’s existing support tools, including OS drivers, video streaming SDK and RSVP design services are ready and available for the CompactPCI Serial video encoders.

Video system builders will have an opportunity to see a demonstration of the HDCorder-SDI, together with a display of AMP’s CompactPCI and CompactPCI Serial boards, at Embedded World 2017 in Nuremberg. The entire line-up of CompactPCI-Serieal high performance video products will be on show at EKF Elektronik’s Stand, Hall 3 – 155.
