Qpixel Technology intros QL202B Main Profile H.264 Codec Qpixel Technology has announced today the availability of the Qpixel QL202B, the third member of its low-power Main Profile (MP) H.264 Codec family. It integrates a 10/100 Ethernet MAC and an external flash memory interface for stand-alone operation, reducing cost and component count in devices such as digital video recorders and security cameras. With the new QL202B, consumers will be able to store and transmit video with the same quality as today's MPEG-4-based systems, using as low as half the bandwidth and storage space.
Unlike its predecessor the QL201B, which was designed to run as a companion chip, the QL202B is ideal for stand-alone operation in a variety of networked and storage-based consumer appliances. Using the software development kit, customers can quickly and easily develop a product with the QL202B, since the SOC design handles all processing for capture, compression, transmission and storage of audio and video content.

"The Qpixel QL202B continues the momentum of our H.264 family of codecs and marks a milestone for the company in high levels of integration and innovative design," said Kourosh Amiri, vice president of marketing at Qpixel Technology. "The QL202B SOC, with its stand-alone operation, advanced media processing features and low power architecture, is well suited for ultra small form factor Internet Protocol (IP) camera designs. This is particularly important in the security industry as camera manufacturers move toward smaller enclosures, such as in dome cameras, where heat dissipation is a major concern."

The QL202B is available today and is priced at $13.50 in quantities of 10,000 units.
