POWAY, Calif. – CohuHD has announced a new high-definition (HD) video accessory solution, CohuHD’s 9710HD Series High-Definition Video Decoder.
CohuHD’s 9710HD Series is an affordable compact single channel HD video decoder designed for delivering high-quality video output to commercial HDMI or analog composite video displays. The 9710HD Series supports decoding of H.264 and MJPEG encoded video from CohuHD HeliosTMcameras, with resolutions ranging from standard-definition 480i up to full high-definition 1080p at full frame rate.
The 9710HD video output format is configurable for either digital HDMI or analog composite video. The 9710HD offers complete flexibility for connection and video streaming methods, including RTSP/RTP, RTP Multicast, UDP Multicast and UDP Unicast.
The 9710HD includes both RS232 serial and USB communication ports for integrating camera pan/tilt/zoom control capabilities. With the serial RS232 port, the 9710HD facilitates integration of CohuHD Helios cameras into legacy analog video systems. The 9710HD accepts serial pan/tilt/zoom commands on the RS232 port and routes these messages over the IP network to the connected CohuHD camera.
“We’re very excited to broaden our Helios product line with the release of the 9710HD Series,” said Tom Kampfer, President of CohuHD. “We’re pleased to offer the ease of use and simplicity of RS232 and USB control within a feature-packed HD video decoding system at an affordable price point.”
For standalone camera applications, the 9710HD offers a USB port for attaching USB joysticks for controlling pan/tilt/zoom functions of the camera over the IP network. The result is a simple, cost effective approach for display and pan/tilt/zoom control of CohuHD Helios cameras.
The 9710HD is ideally suited for simple video wall applications, where multiple decoders can be used to drive an associated wall of HDMI or NTSC displays directly. Compact in size in relation to its 1Ghz quad-core processing and decoding power, the 9710HD can decode bitrates up to 50Mb, while offering smooth, low latency video.
The 9710HD video decoder is immediately available for order.
