Advanced Micro Peripherals Scanverter board New York, USA and Cambridge, England, October 16th, 2013 – Advanced Micro Peripherals (AMP) has announced their new Scanverter range of video signal converter boards. These boards convert between a wide variety of otherwise incompatible video formats and interface standards. Scanverters help systems designers who are now often confronted with a need to interconnect one or more incompatible display devices and video signal sources. This demand is growing as highly functional electronic systems are appearing in ever more diverse applications, and increasingly using multiple displays.
The Scanverter boards greatly simplify video system design, cutting time to market. Built as stand-alone plug-and-go devices, these versatile boards are rugged, compact and dependable. The Scanverters have a 3.6x3.8inch PCI-104 form factor, operate from a single +5 V supply and are easy to integrate mechanically into space-constrained embedded systems. With their own on-board CPU, they provide their conversion function without loading the main system processor. The boards are operating system neutral and do not require any software drivers. Signals originating from any number of disparate sources including display generators, mission computers, FLIRs, radar, STANAG3350 and video cameras can be scan converted to produce highly stable outputs to different video display standards.[Continue reading →]
AMP today announced immediate availability of its lowest latency H.264 encoding engine in a PCI-104 form factor.
Targeted at video distribution applications which demand a near real-time user experience, the H264ULL encodes four full frame rate, full resolution video inputs in parallel with latency of less than 4oms on all channels and with minimal CPU overhead. When paired with AMPs H264ULL-Decoder, glass-to-glass latency of less than 100ms is achieved.[Continue reading →]
