From Eurotech Advanced Solutions for Video Surveillance Applications

Amaro, Udine (Italy) Eurotech will shortly be releasing a new, rugged, compact and low power system for video surveillance applications that further integrates the advanced functionalities of a DVR (Digital Video Recorder) that have the ability to acquire and store high resolution video streams onto an integrated data storage module, and will then allow the user to transmit the images trough long distance wireless connections (GPRS, UMTS, WiFi 802.11.X, Bluetooth). The system will dynamically use the available bandwidth continually ensuring that the maximum possible information can be sent with minimum data loss.
The Eurotech system by fully utilizing the advanced capabilities offered by the new JPEG2000 compression standard analyses the acquired images and then compresses them. The result of this compression is a file that can be sent in its totality or partially. In any case only a few kilobytes contain all the necessary information to rebuild the original images: the quality depends on how many bytes are sent. This quantity can be changed dynamically according to bandwidth availability or according to the required image quality. (more)
