Tech Source Condor 3001xF XMC Card Supports HD-SDI Output to High Resolution Avionics Monitors
ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. --(Business Wire)--
Tech Source (News - Alert), Inc., an independent supplier of high performance embedded
video, graphics and high end computing solutions, has announced the new
Condor 3001xF XMC graphics and video card which supports the output of
video signals to the next generation of avionics monitors running at
resolutions of up to 1080p60.
Based on the AMD (News - Alert) RadeonTM E6760 embedded graphics processing
unit (GPU), the Condor 3001xF offers exceptional graphics performance.
The card features two 3G/HD/SD-SDI video outputs for use in applications
that require very high-end graphics and computation. Its built-in video
decoder enables dual HD decoding of H.264, VC-1, MPEG4, and MPEG2
compressed video streams.
Selwyn L. Henriques, president and CEO of Tech Source Inc., commented,
"With the new generation of avionics monitors moving towards higher
resolutions, there was a need to support the HD-SDI interface for
monitors with HD-SDI inputs and support for native 1080p resolutions.
HD-SDI cables are thin and light and can extend longer lengths compared
to DVI or VGA which is an important factor in the avionics market."
The Condor 3001xF is a rugged convection-coold XMC graphics/video
processor with 1GB of on-board memory and supports the latest versions
of the APIs such as OpenGL, OpenCL and DirectX. The card can be used for
GPGPU (general purpose computing on graphics processing unit) since it
supports OpenCL and has 480 shaders delivering up to 576 GFLOPS of
single precision floating point performance. An API is also provided to
set the SDI resolution.
"This card is also ideal for retrofitting existing aircraft with a new
higher resolution (full HD) video format," added Mr. Henriques. "Some
aircraft have coaxial cables routed throughout for old TV signals and if
these cables are HD, then they can be used to send HD-SDI signals from
Tech Source will demonstrate the new card at SPIE Defense, Security &
Sensing, May 6 - 8 at booth 1209 at the Baltimore Convention Center,
Baltimore, Maryland and at AUVSI's Unmanned Systems, May 12 - 15 at
booth 423 at the Orange (News - Alert) County Convention Center, Orlando, Florida.
