The SVS-8 standalone model or SVS-8 SAM is designed for applications where a truly universal streaming network video decoder is required to drive digital video recorders, video monitors and other devices that accept a composite video signal
A typical composite video signal
has a bandwidth of approximately 4.5 MHz.
A possible solution being explored by researchers at Light Blue Optics, Cambridge, UK, has been to convert a standard composite video signal
into a high-quality 2-D holographic video, in real-time.
Video capture hardware generally expects a composite video signal. Therefore, the computer video signal sent from a presentation computer cannot be directly encoded as part of a video stream.
A set of standard PCs with video capture cards to capture and encode a composite video signal may be the best initial solution.
Using PRISM WLAN technology, Sharp original MAC technology and a high performance MPEG2 encoder/decoder to handle compressed audio and video, the AN-SS700 transmitter is connected to a VCR, DVD player or satellite tuner by composite video signal
. The video pictures received by the ANSS700 are wirelessly transmitted as digital signals and viewed remotely on the LCD TV connected to the receiver unit.
PlanetCam's output is a standard NTSC composite video signal
, which can be viewed or recorded on a user-supplied monitor or videocassette recorder (VCR).
To date, the 1-volt composite video signal
over coaxial cable has been the norm.
Extending Techwell's TW2800 family of security ICs, the pin- to-pin compatible TW2815 and TW2816 four channel video decoders convert analog composite video signals
to digital component YCbCR data for standalone and PC-based DVR security applications.
The company also announced the availability of a reference design kit, the CVM 180K, which is compatible with both high-resolution component and lower resolution composite video signals
. This allows portable electronics OEMs to integrate the CVM 180K in display-enabled applications that use either the emerging component standard or the older composite standard.
