Hardware compression-enabled video capture cards are designed for building highly efficient video surveillance systems. These cards help simplify the systems infrastructure and ensure the highest efficiency use of the platforms computing capacity. Moreover, the cards can be used to upgrade outdated systems and set up high capacity video recording servers.
The cards employ the highly efficient H.264 stream algorithm and MJPEG frame algorithm to compress the video stream. With the video compressed by the video capture card, computing capacity requirements for the system platforms are significantly lower. Therefore, hardware compression-enabled video capture cards allow to set up cost efficient and high capacity soft- and hardware-based solutions to record multiple video streams in high definition and with a high fps rate.
