Aitech M503 - Real Time MPEG 2 Encoder PMC

Variable and Constant Bitrate 1-10 Mbits/sec, Full D1 PAL/NTSC Composite and S-Video

Introduction

The M503 is a real time MPEG-2 encoder implemented on a standard PMC mezzanine board. Based on a powerful single chip MPEG-2 video encoder, the M503 encodes NTSC and PAL video into an MPEG-2 Program or transport stream with an IBBP GOP structure at full D1 (CCIR-601, CCIR-656) resolution with stereo MPEG-1, layer 2 audio. This compact video encoder provides outstanding performance, allowing efficient video and audio compression and transmission in the field for commercial and rugged applications. The M503 features 12 Mbyte of onboard RAM.
