The ICS-8580 is a standalone video capture, compression, streaming and archiving solution in an XMC format making it an ideal solution for video streaming demands that are found in military and aerospace applications. The ICS-8580 responds to the rapid growth in unmanned vehicles and their requirement to deliver high quality mission video over links that are often bandwidth-constrained. It is designed to be a simple, plug-and-play solution that requires minimal integration or software development. The XMC form factor means that it is small, lightweight and consumes little power and with these features, in conjunction with its rugged design, mean that it can be deployed in a wide range of demanding environments. Its flexibility is further enhanced by its ability to support numerous video formats with either two channels of high definition video or four channels of standard definition video. The ICS-8580 features the ultra-efficient, industry standard H.264 video compression codec, but is reconfigurable to enable it to support alternatives such as JPEG2000.
