Siqura have launched a new universal HD decoder. The compact S620 D decoder streams video on two separate monitors complete with stereo audio. H.264, MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 video streams from IP cameras or encoders can be displayed in any resolution including 720p and 1080p.
Siqura’s universal HD decoder is designed for retail spot monitor, “public” monitor and control room video wall applications within security systems. It produces two video streams, each capable of driving 1920 x 1080 pixel, widescreen, HDMI monitors and displaying images from up to 10 cameras simultaneously. It is robust and reliable with a highly compact design at just 101 x 101.6 x 50.8 mm.
Full HD video
The universal HD decoder will produce two Full HD 1080p30, or four 720p30, H.264 video streams in addition to multiple lower resolution streams such as D1 and CIF. Multi-codec support, including MPEG-2, MPEG-4 and H.264 compression formats, makes the decoder suitable for most CCTV applications. Both video outputs come with lip-synchronised, stereo audio.
Siqura’s key values of high quality and reliability are achieved by the Siqura universal HD decoder. It is designed specifically for security applications and combines a state-of-the-art, hardware platform with Siqura’s own embedded software.
The hardware platform is based on a third generation, Core i3 central processor unit (CPU) and is one of the fastest currently available. Not only does this enable the decoder to produce dual, Full HD video streams, but the platform also allows Siqura to quickly take advantage of newer and faster CPUs as INTEL develops them. Siqura is, therefore, able to lead the market now, with its application-specific decoder, and will do so in the future.
In addition to the ONVIF NVD implementation, the decoder offers a state-of-the-art REST API interface for remote control and quick integration.
