Kane Computing launch H.264 / MPEG4-AVC PCI Image Capture and Compression Cards

Product Profile


The new DS-4004H from Kane Computing is the very first implementation of the new H.264 / MPEG4-AVC video compression standard.  It uses four media processors, each with its own video input, VIP (video input processor), memory and PCI interface.  The heavily optimised H.264 / MPEG4-AVC codec runs on each processor.  The codec yields higher picture quality and about 40% lower bit rate than is possible with MPEG4-ASP, and even greater improvements when compared to MPEG4-SP or MPEG2.  The DS-4004H package also includes a high performance PC H.264 decoder for Windows.

Applications and Uses:

The DS-4004H COTS board can be integrated into a number of security and surveillance products such as Digital Recorders running under a variety of Operating Systems including Linux, XP, Win2K, WinME (decoder only) and Win98 (decoder only).  An optional Board Support Package is available with SDK for Encoder, Decoder and Client-Server Networking applications, including example source code to help OEMs develop their products quickly.

Technical Specification

Make Kane Computing
Manufacturer Kane Computing
Model code DS-4004H
Accessories H.264 / MPEG4-AVC Encoder
Additional info PCI Image Capture and Compression Cards offering simultaneous real-time encoding of up to 4 video and audio streams. The H.264 / MPEG4-AVC video compression complies to a standard which is the first to be ratified by both the ISO/IEC and ITU-T. It improves MPEG4-ASP and yields better picture quality while significantly lowering the bit rate. The DS-4004H uses four media processors, each with its own video input, VIP (Video Input Processor), memory and PCI interface. On each processor runs our heavily optimised H.264 / MPEG4-AVC codec.
