Optelecom-NKF Inc., a provider of IP video network solutions for security, surveillance and remote monitoring applications, unveiled its new MPEG-4 video codecthe C-40.

The C-40 codec is touted to feature low bandwidth, DVD-quality video and a wide ambient operating temperature range. Designed for use across traffic, transportation, industrial environments and security applications, this new product combines DSP and FPGA technology, which is said to optimize the interaction between software and hardware.

"This codec is a keystone technology that facilitates the migration from traditional CCTV systems to comprehensive IP network-based video solutions," commented Edmund Ludwig, Optelecom-NKF president and CEO. "The C-40's encoders and decoders combine multistream MPEG-4 video with two-way stereo audio, serial dataRS232, RS422 and RS485and two-way contact closures, allowing users to send multiple defined video streams that are optimized for viewing, recording or for video content analysis," said Ludwig.

The MPEG-4 codec is supported by the company's MX Software Suite and Operator Office to ensure interoperability. Audio, data and contact closures are compatible with all C-series codecs. Configuration and control are accessible through a password protected web interface and the MX configuration tool kit.
