INVENTA Australia has added Multi-Card Support to its realtime hardware MPEG1/2/4 video encoder/decoder MPEGIO - making it a reality to simultaneously hardware encode, decode, transcode multiple MPEG1/2/4 video and audio streams on one PC in realtime.
Available immediately, the new feature allows up to 10 MPEGIO PCI cards to run side by side in one PC.
Each MPEGIO will have its own independent settings and control panel. Simultaneous recording, decoding, transcoding, or mixed operation, can all run independently.
This unique feature opens a floodgate of multitude realtime hardware MPEG video applications that previously were not possible from one single PC, such as:
* Simultaneously record multiple MPEG video files from multiple video inputs
* Simultaneously record single video source into different MPEG formats
* Simultaneously transcode multiple MPEG video files into multiple different format MPEG video files
* Simultaneously stream multiple MPEG2 video contents through Internet/Intranet, etc.
Combined with its superior video quality and absolutely synchronised audio, the multi-card support makes MPEGIO an un-precedent powerful hardware MPEG encoding/decoding device that is unique on the market.
Due to its complete on-board hardware encoding/decoding nature, multiple card MPEG video capture on MPEGIO consumes minimum host PC resources - normal Pentium4 PCs can easily run 4 to 10 MPEGIO cards in its maximum data rate encoding (15Mbps VBR at 720 X 576 Pixel per frame plus 384KHz stereo audio) without even nearing full CPU usage.
Inventa Australia’s store in Sydney has multi-card MPEGIO encoding/decoding in daily live demonstrations.
