American Eltec has expanded its family of p3i frame grabbers for PCI buses or as PMC mezzanine cards with the release of p3i_SEC frame grabber.

Designed for security and monitoring applications, the product records the data from analog color cameras via 16 separate analog inputs, each of which contains a separate ADC, to provide fast switching over ensuring interruption-free display of all areas monitored by the cameras.

The p3i_SEC offers an on-board scaling function (1:1 to 1:8), PCI 2.2 support and optional JPEG compression hardware. Images can therefore be recorded in real-time and saved in the PC's main memory for further processing. Up to 3 images can be processed in parallel via 3-channel DMA. The 16 ADCs also enable the use of mixed cameras with NTSC and PAL formats, and to individually adjust the converter settings such as image size, brightness and contrast.

The p3i_SEC has a LINUX driver available in source code. Pricing for the p3I_SEC with 4 inputs is $1,200.
