Broadcast International unveils CA-20 CodecSys accelerator card

Broadcast International introduced the CA-20 CodecSys accelerator card at the NAB Show.

The CA-20 offers real-time professional, broadcast-quality HD encoding on standard multicore processing platforms.

The CA-20 offloads many of the peripheral processing functions common to all video encoding applications, leaving the host processor free to perform the critical video encoding task. This results in a highly flexible software-based encoding platform capable of supporting a wide variety of video and audio codecs. As new codecs are needed or improved versions of existing codecs are released, they can easily be installed on the existing hardware platform.

The CA-20 is a dual-channel, full-length, PCIe-compliant accelerator card capable of processing two HD video programs.
