Manual Hardware Software  
Certification FAQ Datasheet  



Being the first multimedia-networking product of ICPDAS, IVS-255 is a high performance standalone video server, based on Intel xScale pxa-255 CPU, 400Mhz, and embedded Linux OS. It could simultaneously perform 4Ch real-time MPEG4 video encoding, 4 CH ADPCM Audio encoding, and, 1 CH Audio play-out. All these streaming data go through Ethernet. The rugged hardware design, low power consumption, and fan-less features make this product especially suitable for industrial field application.

Software Support

Being an industrial field product, the software supporting is a key concern for user, especially for those who implement IVS-255 as part of their system. IVS-255 has rich software resource and there will be more and more in the future. Among them, the SDK, System Developer Kit, is the most important and is the basis of all others.

IVS-255 provides SDK (System Developer Kit) for system developers to build their own application quickly and easily. The SDK includes Client side ActiveX Controls (for windows 2000/XP), users manual and programming guides, and examples of VC++, and VB.
  InduSoft Web Studio integration Package  
IVS-255 provides integration package for InduSoft Web Studio Software. The InduSoft Web Studio is a HMI/SCADA tool. With this package, control engineer could add multimedia remote monitoring function their HMI/SCADA system.
