The CineWaveHD decoder from Vela Research, a board-level solution based on the company’s digital signal processing technology, uses a System-on-IC design to help eliminate a host PC. It comes in an ultra-compact half-size PCIe form factor.

According to the company, the CineWaveHD decoder “enables high-performance continuous decoding, with very-high-quality video at extremely low bitrates. It’s ideally suited for live events, digital signage and streaming applications as well as providing a price competitive solution for traditional OTT, broadcast, cable, VoD, video distribution, education, defense and healthcare applications.”

The CineWaveHD decoder board’s feature list includes:

>> MPEG2 Main Profile at Main & High Level
>> AVC/H.264, VC1 & MPEG 4 Part 2 Decoding
>> HD/SD/3G SDI, IP & DVB/ASI inputs                       
>> Component, composite, S-Video & HDMI outputs
>> Dolby Digital pass through
>> Hardware and software demultiplexer support
>> PAL/NTSC/cinema support                
>> Genlock (bilevel and trilevel sync)
>> EIA 608 and 708 closed captioning
>> SD to HD or HD to SD conversion
>> Hardware-based video scaling           

Says President/CEO Mike Reddy, “The SOIC design and hardware-based scaling enable highly efficient and high-quality SD-HD upconverting and downscaling, and the increased reliability necessary for mission-critical applications.”

Continues Kevin Grubbs, director of engineering, “The CineWaveHD decoder also incorporates an intuitive Web-based graphical user interface for quick configuration and ease of operation within a time-saving and user-friendly encoding environment.”
