Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing in Letchworth, England, is introducing the XMC-280 military embedded computing video interface for demanding military video processing applications. The XMC-280 provides an open standard-based, high-performance, real-time embedded systems solution for capturing, compressing, decompressing, and displaying two channels of 1080-pixel, 1920 by 1200-resolution video. Designed for demanding high-definition video with JPEG2000 compression, the XMC-280 facilitates the design of systems that require the distribution or recording of video, such as those in situational awareness applications. In real-time embedded systems, JPEG2000 offers better quality than MPEG at higher compression ratios and because each frame is compressed individually, there is no dependence on preceding or subsequent frames. This frame-by-frame compression results in lower latency and greater resistance to errors in transmission. Using the XMC-280, several channels of high-definition video can be distributed over standard Gigabit Ethernet networks in excellent quality and with minimal latency. Details are retained at 50:1 compression at which eight 1080p60 channels could be transmitted over one Gigabit Ethernet stream.
