Matrox Graphics announced the Matrox VDA-1164 – a video decoding accelerator designed for workstations running video management system (VMS) software. The VDA-1164 uniquely offloads the system CPU supporting hardware decoding of multiple IP video streams in a variety of resolutions and encoded formats, which can be viewed on up to four HD monitors.
Ideal for stand-alone video surveillance systems, or control room operator stations running video and situation management software to monitor large-scale IP security networks, the VDA-1164 comprises two add-in boards: a 64-bit 66/100/133 MHz PCI-X video decoding board and a PCIe x16 quad-output board.
This board set completely alleviates the burden of decoding multiple IP video streams–up to 16 D1 or 64 CIF–at the same time from the host CPU. For swift integration of new network devices, the VDA-1164 ships with an easy-to-use SDK that VMS software vendors can use to support the VDA-1164 within their applications.
