Vitec:VM2 104+

Introducing the VM2-104+ from VITEC MULTIMEDIA, a revolutionary step forward in MPEG encoding technology. Specifically designed for system integrators, VARs and embedded systems, the VM2-104+ MPEG encoder makes low cost, high quality MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 encoding a reality. The VM2-104+ is 100% based on VITEC's Award Winning technology and fully benefits from VITEC's newest MPEG compression chip, the VM2000.

VM2-104+ is a new and innovative MPEG Video Encoder that is optimized for the unique requirements of embedded systems where space is scarce and ruggedness is paramount.

The PC-104-Plus specification establishes a standard for the use of a high speed PCI bus in embedded applications. Incorporating the PCI bus within the industry proven PC-104 form-factor brings many advantages to its users, including fast data transfer over a PCI bus, low cost due to PC-104's unique self-stacking bus, and high reliability due to PC-104's inherent ruggedness.

More Flexibility
Easy improvement of algorithms over time by simple software updates. For instance, it will be possible to implement new algorithms on the same hardware base in a near the future by simple software upgrades via the internet.


High Scalability
The same hardware board will benefit from higher processing power of the PC over time. The software of the hybrid architecture automatically detects which PC is used and scales the motion estimation algorithm to more powerful modes, thus leading to more quality or higher compression ratios.


Cost Effective
The hybrid approach requires far less silicon than the full hardware solution.

Increasing Performance And Features
When a faster PC is used, VM2-104+ will run with higher quality and new features. This is not the case with other products on the market.

Easy And Economic Upgrades
No need to buy a new board each time a new compression algorithm comes to the market. Just buy and download a new software upgrade and run it with the board. The overall cost over time is lower.

Extended Life
A VAR doesn't need to buy a new board and invest time and money in a new development each time the next generation of encoding algorithm comes to the market.

Consistent Installed Base
A VAR can upgrade its installed base of equipment by a simple software upgrade and keep a consistent hardware base, which is much easier for maintenance.
