Video Transponder System

The SOC VTR-1000 is a complete H.264 video transponder system based on SOC's H.264 encoder and decoder modules. It has an HDMI input and output, an HD-SDI/3G-SDI input and output, an Ethernet of tri-speed (10/100/1000 Mbps), two WiFi connectors, as well as additional header pins for LCD display, keypad, and general PMOD.

The VTR-1000 is provided as an OEM product of H.264 video transponder for both wired (UDP/IP-Ethernet) and wireless (802.11/b/g/n WiFi) applications.

The VTR-1000 is also used as an evaluation board for SOC H.264 and MPEG-2 codec modules and IP cores. SOC provides the firmware/software for the VTR-1000, which makes it a plug-and-play system.

The VTR-1000 can be used to evaluate the H.264 and MPEG-2 encoders and decoders individually or simultaneously. When both the encoder and decoder are tested at the same time, the latency of the encoder and decoder can be measured easily. SOC also provides computer software which allows the VTR-1000 to communicate with standard computers for evaluation or product applications.

The physical dimension of the VRT-1000 is 5" × 6". The VTR-1000 takes 10v – 36v power supply with automatic adaptation.
