Parvus Corp. in Salt Lake City is offering the CTR-1471 PC/104-Plus JPEG-2000 encoder card, an eight-channel video compressor module supporting the JPEG 2000 (J2K) ISO/IEC15444-1 image-compression standard. Designed to operate in temperatures from -40 to 85 degrees Celsius, the CTR-1471 is for high-reliability and mobile video applications, including networked/wireless video and image distribution systems and digital CCTV and surveillance systems. The embedded PC/104-Plus board implements the computationally intensive operations of the JPEG2000 image compression standard, as well as provides code stream generation for most applications that support real-time video encoding. It contains a dedicated wavelet transform engine, three entropy codecs, an onboard memory system, and embedded RISC processors. The board is able to process images at a rate of 40 megasamples per second in reversible mode, and at higher rates when used in irreversible mode.
