Tech Source Links with Cambridge Pixel to Speed Development of Video Applications in Embedded Mil-Aero Market
ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. --(Business Wire)--
Tech Source (News - Alert), Inc., (www.techsource.com),
an independent supplier of high performance embedded video, graphics and
high end computing solutions, has partnered with Cambridge Pixel (www.cambridgepixel.com)
to speed the development of video applications for systems integrators
in the embedded military and aerospace market.
Selwyn L. Henriques, president and CEO of Tech Source Inc., said: "We
needed COTS software support as a front end for our new Condor VC100x
video capture and compression card to make it quick and simple for
customers requiring H.264 video streaming, recording and video windowing
to get their applications up and running. The combination of our low
power VC 100x H.264 XMC card and Cambridge Pixel's SPx AV software
library provides a compelling solution for systems integrators
developing mission critical video streaming applications."
Cambridge Pixel has worked with Tech Source to optimize its SPx AV
software components on the VC 100x card. For example, the video capture
and compression card is now supported as an input device in the SPx AV
software library. As a result, developers can access a flexible library
of software routines and a C++ application programming interface (API)
for building a full range of distribution and display solutions using
the VC 100x, with capabilities including network streaming, display
composting, record/replay and metadata supprt.
David Johnson, managing director, Cambridge Pixel, said: "We are
delighted to be working with Tech Source and see increasing demand for
audio and video in embedded military and aerospace markets such as
unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and in other mission critical video
streaming and surveillance applications. Our SPx AV software also
supports decompression of H.264 video using graphics processors (GPUs)
allowing very cost effective sensor distribution and display, with
multiple layers of graphics and video being displayed in real-time using
standard PC CPU and GPU hardware."
The Tech Source XMC card supports up to 4 composite video inputs
(NTSC/PAL/SECAM) or up to 2 SDI inputs (SD-SDI/HD-SDI). The card also
has 2 stereo or 4 mono audio inputs and supports transfer of the video
stream via UDP (News - Alert) or TCP/IP using RTP and RTSP protocols for remote display
of captured data with low latency. It is available in various ruggedized
levels and has conduction or convection cooled variants.
Cambridge Pixel's SPx AV software is a toolkit of components which
support a wide range of video and audio capture options and includes
compression, network streaming, latency and quality of service control,
in addition to real-time display of video with overlays, underlay and
