The latest in Software Compression Technology
Compumedics Digital Video software is designed to take full advantage of the latest in video compression technologies to ensure accurate image reproduction with the lowest data storage overhead possible.
The MPEG-4 CODEC, a compression technique optimized for smooth network functionality, was chosen as the best format for transmitting video images over a LAN or WAN and for Multicast Viewing.
Multicast allows viewing of the video data over the network on multiple computers simultaneously. And, because MPEG-4 is a software compressor, special processing cards are not required to be installed in the computer.
With a consistent and stable platform for recording video data in place, Compumedics has developed multiple user interfaces for reviewing the data. The interface is designed to include review and control features that are of specific importance for each application.
