Datapath’s ActiveSQX is a powerful PCIe card designed to decode multiple streaming videos using an on-board processor. Multiple ActiveSQX cards can be used in a single system to support the management of entire CCTV systems or connect to online media libraries, streaming and decoding video for immediate video wall display.
This card is capable of simultaneously decoding and transferring up to 1.2 GBps of video data, equivalent to 12x 1080p 30 fps streams, to one or more Datapath ImageDP4 graphics cards. Scaling of the decoded streams is supported on the card. The ActiveSQX card is capable of simultaneously decoding up to 20x 1080p 30 fps incoming streams ensuring smooth transitions from stream to stream within carousel enabled windows.
The card supports the IP protocol stack, with on-board transport servers for RTSP and HTTP connections to video stream sources, further reducing the video stream management burden on the CPU. In addition, the ActiveSQX has two 1 Gbps network ports - this keeps the motherboard network port and system CPU cycles available for running implementation-specific applications.
The ActiveSQX card supports multicast and unicast streaming transport protocols. The ActiveSQX network interfaces support both DHCP and static IP address assignment using IPv4 and IPv6.
