The VCP-2864 can be combined with the VCP-8166 H.264 / AVC compression / decompression XMC module to form a single-slot solution for JPEG 2000 and H.264 compression and decompression, as well as raw capture for HD video and still images.
“The VCP-2864 combined with the VCP-8166 is unique on the market. Together, they provide a single-slot solution for multi-protocol compression and video capture”, stated Hervé Garchette, CEO, CES. “The combination of the FPGAs and ASIC accelerators brings a flexible, yet low power solution in a rugged, single-slot 3U VPX package to the hard real-time, low latency video processing requirements.”
The VCP-2864 features multiple SDI input channels compatible with SD and HD signals. The video coding functionality provided by the VCP-2864, is designed to guarantee smooth real-time, low latency coding up to HD formats. JPEG 2000 compressed video is available from the processor board via PCI Express (one channel if HD, two channels if SD). Input signals can be duplicated and non-compressed video is available via the PCI Express interface for real-time processing. Scaling down of frame rate, resolution, bitrate, and frame cropping are programmable. The board can be configured either in capture / compression or in decompression / output mode. An XMC site is available for expansion with the VCP-8166 H.264 / AVC Codec XMC.
The RTM-6487A0 Rear I/O Transition Module for Video Boards (3x micro HDMI, 8x SMB, 2x VGA, 1x CameraLink, 2x mini Stereo Jack, 1x RJ45, 1x mini USB) provides I/O options for the VCP-2864.
A standard element of the CES OpenVPX family, the VCP-2864 is compatible with the other 3U VPX boards from CES, including the ETS-8227 multi-protocol switch, the RIOV-2440 single board computer, and the FIOV-2310 FPGA processor board. An Advanced Board Management Controller (aBMC) is implemented for VITA 46.11 support, configuration management, event logging and other supporting tasks. It is fully compatible with the CES Configuration, Load and Monitor (CLM) tool.
The VCP-2864 module has options for air-cooled and conduction-cooled operating environments.
Software support packages are available for Linux and VxWorks operating systems. A video API library is provided. The video API and board libraries provide the necessary interface for the configuration and control of the board functionality. The VCP-2864 and VCP-8166 combination is unified under a single interface. For systems that require custom functions, IP can be developed using the Xilinx ISE Design Software and controlled by the software API.
