Mpeg-4 Avc Halves Video File Size

The NIST says the AVC/H.264 file compression format, also referred to as the MPEG-4 AVC format, cuts the bit rate in half but retains the quality of MPEG-2 according to research by the federal agency.

Government Computer News reports research conducted by the NIST’s Charles Fenimore and other researchers found a 50-percent gain in compression efficiency for the new standard, created in May 2003 by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG).

The research is being published in NIST’s report, Subjective Quality Assessment of the Emerging AVC/H.264 Video Coding Standard. The report says there was a noticeable superiority of AVC/H.264 compared to state-of-the-art MPEG-2 video encoders in almost all test cases.

3Vr Security 800I: Storage, Monitoring And Analysis

3VR's 800i system can store, search, sort, and analyze up to a years' worth of data; the appliance also recognizes security events in real time and responds with actions specified by the user, putting managers in control of their security environment.

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

The 800i can store and perform analysis on data from up to eight cameras, and multiple 800i units can be linked to enable monitoring and analysis of data from hundreds of cameras across an entire security operation.

The 3VR 800i can be installed in a security cluster with or instead of security digital video recorders (DVRs) and alongside CCTV equipment. The 3VR platform is a breakthrough approach to advanced video analysis that seamlessly integrates high capacity DVR technology with existing CCTV infrastructures to transform raw, unstructured surveillance feeds into compact, intelligently structured information.
