Press release, September 3; Ricky Morris, DIGITIMES [Thursday 3 September 2009]

Lanner Electronics has announced the release of the VW-1104, a compact mobile DVR platform built on the Intel Atom CPU and offering Wi-Fi, 3G mobile and GPS communications along with four-channel H.264 video capture and compression.

The VW-1104 is designed for installation in vehicles such as trains, buses and emergency vehicles where its combination of real-time communications and video technologies let customers build advanced intelligent transportation systems, said Lanner. Applications include fleet management systems with real-time surveillance video, or in-vehicle infotainment systems.

The VW-1104 includes four BNC inputs for capturing CCTV video and an onboard codec chip to convert video streams to compressed H.264 video, allowing it to serve as a compact surveillance system that can be installed in moving vehicles, said Lanner.

At the core of the platform is an ultra-low voltage Intel Atom N270 CPU, enabling low power consumption and a completely fanless system design for improved reliability essential for mobile deployment, highlighted the company.

"The Lanner VW-1104 crams an extremely wide range of features into a little fanless box," said Kevin Chen, Lanner video communications product manager. "Additionally, its ruggedized electrical and mechanical design ensures stable operation in harsh conditions, and its low power consumption, small size and fanless design make it a perfect platform for any industrial-grade video capture and delivery application."

Multimedia features include HDMI and VGA video outputs, H.264 video compression and G.711 audio compression. As for communication features, the VW-1104 incorporates Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, 3G wireless supporting UTMS and WCDMA, and a GPS receiver for location tracking.

The VW-1104's x86-based Atom processor speeds time to market for application developers, said Lanner, adding that the company also provides an SDK and reference software to help customers get started even more quickly. The EyeShot 2000 Control Panel software provides basic features for camera control, PTZ, file storage and streaming, as well as advanced features including motion detection, night detection and scalable video coding, said the company. The system supports Linux and Windows, and the SDK includes features for alarm I/O, streaming, RS-485 control and display.

The Lanner VW-1104 is currently available for sampling.
