L2Tek, a manufacturers’ representative and distributor of components and sub-assemblies for professional video and high-speed communications systems, has unveiled the CoreEL AVDM6HD audio-video decoder module. With the addition of only an enclosure and physical electrical connections, including power and a control interface over its serial port, OEMs have a complete H.264 and MPEG-2 decoder ready for market.
The module accepts Transport Stream input either over ASI or over an SMPTE 2022 compliant Ethernet interface and provides H.264 and MPEG-2 full HD decoded video output over HD-SDI with embedded 8-channel audio and VBI data. It optionally supports Dolby decoding and Genlock.
The AVDMS6HD module extracts PSI data from the transport stream and delivers it over a serial port to the host controller. The host application only needs to program the audio, video, PCR and VBI PIDs. The module can also operate in a plug-and-play mode wherein it will detect the type of video compression, pick-up the first program in the Transport Stream and start decoding.
CoreEL’s solution has been designed keeping in mind the time to market needs for 10-bit IRD, video monitoring, test and measurement equipment, and file/video play-out applications.
