Barco's second-generation integrated streaming video card (SVC-2) offers unmatched performance for the simultaneous processing of large amounts of streaming video signals in real-time with minimal latency.
SVC-2 can decode 4 simultaneous 4CIF MPEG-4 Part 10 (H.264, AVC) streams per card. Through its innovative 4-DSP architecture (one DSP per stream), SVC-2 offers high reliability. As each DSP decodes a single stream, corrupt streams do not influence the decoding of other streams.
SVC-2 offers enhanced flexibility as it allows graceful technological migration. SVC-2 unifies different video-over-IP networks by supporting multiple compression algorithms. The second-generation universal decoder supports ISO 144496-2 and ISO 144496-10 MPEG-4, ITU-T H.263, ISO 11172 MPEG-2, ISO 10918 MJPEG and specific wavelet streams. With SVC-2 even non-standard compression techniques and stream transport can be ported to the decoder platform. Additionally, Barco ensures interoperability after a period of testing with full co-operation from the selected manufacturers. Please see the specifications section overleaf for an updated interoperability list. Support for MJPEG and specific encoders will be added via firmware updates.
Available on all hardware platforms
Barco’s integrated streaming video solutions, centered on the universal decoder card, can be used within the modular chassis architecture of Barco’s family of controllers alongside other interface cards (i.e. composite analog, RGB, DVI, SDI, HD-SDI). This allows for simultaneous deployment of multiple video technologies and protects the investment on the display walls by providing an easy migration from analog or hybrid video systems to a completely digital solution.
