Collaboration brings leading edge video processing solutions to defence and aerospace customers
Subs & Systems
Abaco Systems has entered into a collaboration with visual technology leader EIZO Rugged Solutions and its NVIDIA Pascal-based products. The collaboration will see the company expanding its existing NVIDIA-based board and system family by using EIZOs’ experience and expertise to respond to the growing defence/aerospace customer demands for advanced video processing and GPGPU technology in high performance embedded computing (HPEC) systems.
“We’re excited by our relationship with EIZO because it brings important benefits to our customers,” said Peter Thompson, vice president, Product Management at Abaco Systems. “Our mission at Abaco has long been to bring the latest technologies to our warfighters in the shortest time possible, giving them the best tools to do the job – and this agreement helps enable us to do that.”
“Beyond this,” Thompson continued, “NVIDIA’s CUDA-enabled GPGPU technology is rapidly becoming a vital element in today’s HPEC systems. GPGPU provides the highest degree of parallelism to deliver performance well beyond that of traditional processors in a number of applications, such as multi-beam sensor processing, software-defined radar and automatic target recognition/ acquisition. It can also deliver substantially improved performance/watt. This agreement with EIZO Rugged Solutions further strengthens our already leading edge HPEC capability.”
“The agreement also enables us to respond to the growing use of high definition video in applications such as autonomous vehicles,” added Thompson. “EIZO’s expertise allows us to take video ingest, encoding/decoding and output to a new level of performance, leveraging the advanced capabilities of NVIDIA’s GPU technology as well as high-speed 3G-SDI, providing our customers with transfer rates of almost 3 Gigabits/second - substantially reducing latency.”
