Z3 Technology's Z3-DM8107-SDI2-RPS Development System Delivers Low Power H.264 Encoder Solution

LINCOLN, Neb., Oct. 22, 2014 — (PRNewswire) —  Providing the latest in integrated embedded solutions and products, Z3 Technology, LLC announced today the immediate availability of the Z3-DM8107-SDI2-RPS broadcast encoder. The encoder was developed as a video infrastructure solution that works in applications such as broadcast video encoding, medical video, video security and industrial DVR, and industrial video processing.

"With encoding capability of up to 1080p60 or dual channel with 1 channel of 1080i30 and 1 channel of 720p60, the Z3-DM8107-SDI2-RPS supports H.264 BP, MP and HP," says Aaron Caldwell, CEO, Z3 Technology. "ODM and OEM costs associated with development expenses and time-to-market are significantly reduced with Z3's application software that comes with our development kits."

As with all of Z3 Technology's Rapid Prototyping Systems, the Z3-DM8107-SDI2-RPS consists of a hardware package and software bundle designed to enable rapid development of multimedia applications. Based on the DaVinciā„¢ TMS320DM8107 video processor from Texas Instruments (TI), the hardware provided includes one Z3-DM8107-MOD-0x system-on-module card and a video infrastructure application board, Z3-DM8107-APP-2x, which provides advanced video input/output capabilities.

Measuring only 82mm x 43mm, the Z3-DM8107-MOD-0x is a compact OEM-ready module and features an ARM Cortex-A8 core capable of 750MHz, parallel and serial CMOS sensor ports, dual GigE ports, two SATA2 interfaces, PCI Express and 1GB DDR3 on board as well as 256MB of Flash. This module offers low power consumption and H.264 1080p60 performance. The Z3-DM8107-MOD-0x is designed for applications such as digital video recorders (DVR), network video recorders (NVR), industrial video interface displays and medical imaging.

Z3's custom video infrastructure application board, Z3-DM8107-APP-2x, is included with the Z3-DM8107-SDI2-RPS system. This application board leverages the I/O expansion capability of the Z3-DM8107-MOD-0x to implement additional functions not present in the base module. The Z3-DMI8107-SDI2-RPS includes inputs for 3G-SDI, HDMI, composite and analog stereo audio. The application board also has HDMI output. Gigabit Ethernet, USB 2.0 and RS-232 comprise the remaining interfaces on the Z3-DM8107-APP-2x.

"There is an increased demand in the market for differentiated multichannel video solutions," says Jacob Jose, product manager, IPCamera processor business, Texas Instruments, "TI's DM8107 video system-on-chip (SoC) offers high integration and flexibility on small form factor, low-power devices. Z3 modules will enable innovators in the video and vision market to leverage this technology to get to market quickly."

The bundled software includes all necessary components for users to develop their own advanced multimedia, graphics and DSP applications. The provided software options include pre-loaded encoder Z3 applications, Linux and RDK framework. Featured software components include broadcast quality H.264 codec and MPEG-2 encode. Additional design services and support are available from Z3 Technology. Please contact Z3 at  http://www.Z3technology.com or e-mail at  Email Contact.

The Z3-DM8107-SDI2-RPS is readily available from Z3 Technology. More information can be found at:  www.Z3technology.com.
