Equator Showcases Security Market Solutions at IFSEC with Partners

5/21/2003 - Equator Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance, programmable and power-efficient system-on-a-chip (SoC) processors for video streaming and image processing applications, announced that the company will be joined by several technology partners to demonstrate a wide range of smart surveillance applications and devices based on the company’s BSPTM-15 chip at IFSEC 2003.

Known for its processing power and flexibility, the BSP-15 has enabled a variety of security products that will be demonstrated by the following partners:

DynaPel Systems – Will demonstrate several products based on the Equator BSP-15 chip. Highlighted at the show will be its plug-and-play, ready-to-deploy intelligent CCTV appliances SteadyCCTVTM, which provides image stabilization for analog cameras. DynaPel will also demonstrate CloseViewTM and AlarmViewTM products that provide smart surveillance functionality based on advanced motion detection, motions tracking and image processing technology.

IQinVision – Will demonstrate its newest product, the IQeye4 - a smart IP camera powered by the BSP-15 chip. This intelligent imaging system combines a 1.3 megapixel CMOS based smart camera platform capable of ten frames per second JPEG image streaming at full resolution with 30 GOP video processing performance in a single compact industrial device. The IQeye4 contains a full network compute engine with an embedded HTTP webserver and FTP fileserver as well as a robust C programming environment and third party support for extensive video content analysis (including biometric analysis) and compression codecs such as G.711, G.729a, MPEG-4, H.263 and JPEG 2000.

MediaTechnik – Will demonstrate a reference design based on the BSP-15 chip and the Tetra Hardware Platform for a multi-channel digital video recorder (DVR) solution that allows simultaneous recording (up to 30 fps in CIF or D1 quality) and playback. This DVR reference design features MediaTechnik’s MJPEG CODEC technology. In standby mode, low bit rate video compression is performed in low (CIF) resolution and low frame rate to extend recording time. In alarm mode, the system automatically records in higher resolution at 30fps in order to capture the best-quality video for surveillance analysis. (www.mediatechnik.com)

Reality Commerce Corporation (RCC) – Will demonstrate a real-time MPEG-4 encoder capable of full resolution (4CIF) and full motion video compression using the BSP-15 processor from Equator. RCC’s MPEG-4 encoder provides high compression ratios that dramatically reduce the cost of storage devices and/or the network bandwidth. It also incorporates features tailored for video surveillance applications such as anti-shake motion prediction, region-based motion detection, and adjustable frame rate, bit-rate, and resolution.

Uniform Industrial Corporation (UIC) – Will demonstrate the BP1200/BP1400 series of low cost 2/4-channel PCI video capture and video compression cards based on the Equator BSP-15 chip. FCC certified and complete with Linux and Windows drivers, these cards are market ready for a wide range of video-centric applications, such as 2-, 4-, and 16-channel scalable DVR. For surveillance product, UIC has 4 channel stand-alone DVR with greatest price/performance. This technology benefits customers with good image quality and stability. (www.uniform.com.tw)

Alogics Co., LTD – Will demonstrate the first fully integrated analog and digital multiplexer chip for video surveillance and DVR applications. The Alogics range of chips will allow companies to multiplex 4-, 8- or 16-camera or video channels without the need for external video decoder or encoder chips. Alogics devices connect seamlessly into the Equator BSP-15, where customers need more than two input video channels. (www.alogics.com)

“We built BSP15 to do precisely this – deliver more channels of the best video at the lowest bitrate and a platform that allows new image processing algorithms to be implemented at the speed of innovation,” stated John O’Donnell, co-founder and CTO of Equator. “We are excited to be the engine in so many field proven security and surveillance solutions and we are extremely proud to be able to join forces with our partners to showcase such state of the art solutions. We have played a leadership role in pushing forward the digital transition and smart digital surveillance and we look forward to the further proliferation of BSP-15-based solutions in the security space.”

Equator, together with their development partners, will demonstrate next-generation video processing applications during IFSEC 2003 at booth B110 in Hall 6.
