MATROX Imaging, represented in Australia by the Dindima Group , has released the Matrox Morphis for PC/104-Plus, a capture board with a dual-video decoder architecture and a real-time JPEG2000 compression/decompression engine.
The board is a suitable video acquisition option for the Matrox 4Sight M, a platform that is used to develop digital video recorders (DVRs) or network/web-enabled video servers for remote surveillance.
The Matrox Morphis for PC/104-Plus is one of the first capture boards to offer JPEG2000 hardware acceleration for the PC/104-Plus form factor. It supports ultra-fast channel switching between multiple video inputs, making it ideal for video surveillance applications. The onboard JPEG2000 hardware accelerator facilitates real-time image archiving and transmission for surveillance applications.
The Matrox Morphis for PC/104-Plus captures from NTSC, PAL, RS-170 and CCIR video sources and supports simultaneous acquisition of two live video streams. The board's scalable design permits users to connect and switch between a maximum of 16 CVBS 8 Y/C or a combination of inputs.
Software support is available for Microsoft Windows 2000 and Windows XP, and consists of the hardware-independent Matrox Imaging Library [MIL]/ActiveMIL or MIL-Lite/ActiveMIL-Lite development toolkits for creating custom applications.
Matrox 4Sight M is equipped with either an Embedded Intel Celeron M or Pentium M processor. It also has an ATA-100 hard drive, and supports USB 2.0 and Gigabit Ethernet (GbE).
