October 31, 2016: Due to end-of-life (EOL) of the computing platform used in the Transcoder Gateway Solo, Pleora had announced EOL details for the product. The Transcoder Gateway Quad product is still available.
Pleora Technologies Transcoder Gateway cuts the complexity and cost of multi-screen imaging systems by transmitting GigE Vision and USB3 Vision video to any playback device, including tablets and smartphones.
The appliance automatically converts video from up to four GigE Vision or USB3 Vision cameras into the widely used H.264 compression format. The video is then transmitted over a wired or wireless connection using RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) to a playback device, including embedded PCs, tablets, and smartphones. The gateway can also output HDMI video to high-definition displays.
In a military vetronics application, the driver and occupants rely on uncompressed, low-latency GigE Vision video from on-vehicle cameras for navigation and surveillance. GigE Vision video can be multicast to display panels, processing equipment, and the transcoder gateway. The plug-in Transcoder Gateway appliance simply converts these image feeds into a compressed video stream that can be wirelessly transmitted to a command center, other vehicles, or battlefield troops who can view the video on low power, portable tablets.
For medical imaging applications in the operating room, uncompressed low-latency GigE vision-compliant video used by a surgeon can be compressed into a common format that consulting physicians and nursing staffing can access on tablets or other portable devices.
In a multi-camera container crane system, GigE Vision video can be sent to a computing platform for analysis and a portable device for playback and recording. Similarly, GigE Vision or USB3 Vision images used for real-time license plate recognition in a free-flow tolling application can be compressed and transmitted to a central office for live traffic monitoring.
