Using the powerful Radeon E8860 GPU, the rugged M596 embedded video and graphics XMC captures multiple video inputs and drives up to six simultaneous independent video outputs with full video switching capabilities. By pairing the E8860 GPU with additional on-board resources, such as an optional FPGA, the M596 delivers a much wider variety of video I/O interfaces than many other E8860-based products. These interfaces include DVI output channels as well as S-Video and STANAG 3350 inputs and outputs. For legacy systems with older display technology, the M596 drives composite (RS-170A [NTSC]/PAL) displays. The optional FPGA also provides signal conditioning, compression, and additional graphics overlay/underlay functionality. The M596 is particularly useful in harsh environments that have versatile video overlay and capture requirements.
