Renesas Electronics Europe Launches its Stream it! Kit for H.264 Encoding and Streaming in Real Time

27 Apr 2015

Düsseldorf, April 27, 2015 — Renesas Electronics Europe, a premier provider of advanced semiconductor solutions, today announced the availability of its "Stream it!" kit, a complete evaluation platform for H.264 encoding and streaming in real-time. The new kit includes all the hardware, software components and demonstration programs manufacturers need to start development of cost-optimised video surveillance systems, video door phones, access control and intrusion detection systems.

Renesas' new "Stream it!" kit enables designers of advanced security and multimedia applications to develop scalable systems with the shortest time-to-market, reduced component count and optimised PCB footprint. The "Stream it!" kit comes pre-loaded with the H.264 Encode and Stream demonstration, but can also run two additional streaming demonstrations included in the kit. For developers of industrial sensor and home automation systems, the "Stream it!" kit can be used to log sensor status information, while sharing the collected data on a web server. For streaming applications targeting the consumer segment, internet radio MP3 files can be streamed to the "Stream it!" kit, decoded and played over headphones.
