1/6/2004 - Kane Computing and ATEME recently launched a new development platform, VSIP, to support the development of video application providing a quick and easy transition from analogue to intelligent digital video surveillance.
Video surveillance systems are currently undergoing a transition where more and more analog solutions are being replaced by digital. Digital technology enables audio/video data compression that minimises transmission bandwidth and storage requirements and permits security cameras to operate on standard data networks without the expense of bulky coaxial cables. To enable this changeover, the new Video Security over Internet Protocol (VSIP) Development Platform has been created to help developers build intelligent security products that take advantage of a digital IP network by leveraging the real-time performance and flexibility inherent in DSP technology.
VSIP has everything to design video security recording and video transmission products quickly. VSIP includes a ready to use TMS320DM642 digital media processor based development board including relevant peripherals and accessories; embedded software including audio/video compression libraries, application-oriented algorithms and application sample in source code; PC supervision application including decode, and embedded platform control; complete set of documentation including a users' manual and developers documentation; comprehensive development environment including DSP development tools, programmable logic development tools and emulator for DSP.
With the flexibility of a programmable DSP solution, developers can change compression standards, add specific processing capabilities and develop different products on the same hardware platform - enabling a wide range of products and creating a future proof system.
The VSIP development platform is available today from Kane Computing.
