MATROX Imaging, represented by Dindima , has introduced the Matrox Morphis, a new family of boards for video capture from multiple inputs and real-time JPEG2000 compression.
The Matrox Morphis uses an extremely versatile design, which permits the user to maximise the number of inputs with a cost-effective solution.
Featuring a dual decoder design, the Matrox Morphis supports ultra-fast channel switching between multiple video inputs that make it ideal for video surveillance applications.
Moreover, the on-board JPEG2000 compression/decompression functionality facilitates real-time image archiving and transmission for any type of application, including video surveillance and medical imaging.
The Matrox Morphis captures from NTSC, PAL, RS170, and CCIR video sources, and supports simultaneous acquisition of two live video streams.
The Matrox Morphis's scalable design permits users to connect and switch between a maximum of 16 CVBS, 8 Y/C, or a combination of inputs.
Other standard features include 16 TTL auxiliary I/Os, an RS485 serial interface, as well as a watchdog timer for automatically recovering from application or system failure, and hardware facilities for implementing custom software-based motion detection.
Software support is available for Microsoft Windows 2000 and Windows XP, and consists of the field-proven, hardware-independent Matrox Imaging Library (MIL)/ActiveMIL or MIL-Lite/ActiveMIL-Lite development toolkits for creating custom applications.
