We have expanded our range of radar acquisition boards by adding the HPx-200e PCI express card.
For the ECDIS market, Cambridge Pixel announces its SPx ECDIS Developer kit allowing system integrators to cost-effectively add radar acquisition, display and tracking into their ECDIS application.
For video applications, the SPx AV library continues to evolve with support announced for video processing in the GPU.
SPx AV adds GPU Processing
GPU-based automatic detection of moving objects by removal of slow-changing background
SPx AV provides a library of middleware software for video capture, distribution and display. The library now provides support for video processing using the power of the GPU. The GPU provides a cost-effective parallel processor, which is exploited by the SPX AV library to implement display enhancement and feature extraction. The SPx AV library supports decompression of H.264 video, video manipulation and overlay/watermark insertion prior to display.
Cambridge Pixel's new PCI Express (x1 lane) radar interface card, HPx-200e, expands the options for interfacing to commercial and military primary radar systems in desktop Windows and Linux systems. The PCI express card is fully supported with Cambridge Pixel's SPx library, SPx Server and RadarView.
The new SPx ECDIS Development kit allows system integrators to add radar display and tracking into an ECDIS client. A highly cost-efficient package comprising the HPx-200C radar input card (optionally HPx-200Ce for PCI express) and SPx-ECDIS Co-Processor combine to provide exceptional performance and ease of integration.
The ECDIS Co-Processor is a software module that handles radar input, processing, scan conversion and tracking. It provides an API to control the radar display and track processing, allowing the radar presentation and tracking to be integrated into Windows-based application software. Both manual and fully automatic track initiation (ATI) is supported.
