AMP cuts latency for H.264 encoding engine

AMP has announced its lowest latency H.264 encoding engine in a PCI-104 form factor, the H264ULL.

It encodes four full frame rate, full resolution video inputs in parallel with latency of less than 4oms on all channels and with minimal CPU overhead.

AMP claims it can achieve glass-to-glass latency of less than 100ms when paired with AMP's H264ULL-Decoder.

The H264ULL also provides stream duplication which is the ability for a single video input to be compressed into multiple streams with different characteristics.

This helps eliminate the need for trans-coding to support devices with different resolutions such as smartphone and flat panel displays.

Additional features provided by the H264ULL-Encoder include OSD Video Text Overlay, full control of video input, trans-sizing, trans-rating, and motion detection.

AMP provides drivers, SDKs and technical support for popular versions of Windows and Linux operating systems.
