Breakthrough Price-Performance for Video Acceleration
Pyro Kompressor HD offers 4X the cost-effectiveness of other    programmable accelerators with its teraOPS-class, massively-parallel    chip.
On-chip PCI Express® reduces cost, power and footprint.

Integrated With MainConcept®
The MainConcept ReferenceTM transcoder application is also included,    integrated for acceleration, including accelerator GUI controls. Includes    extensive Blu-ray presets, watch-folder automation, plus logo/branding of    the GUI and documentation for OEMs.
Included Reference decoders enable a broad range of transcoding: DV,    HDV, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, H.264, AVCHD, AVC-Intra, VC-1*, XDCAM,    DVCPRO 25/50, DVCPRO-HD/100, JPEG2000*, RGB and YUV files,  plus    QuickTime import.

Plug-and-Play With MainConcept-Licensed Applications

Pending testing, multiple applications incorporate Pyro Kompressor HD -    compatible MainConcept HW APIs, which expands the available market.

The Accelerator Board
One massively-parallel processor with 336 RISC processors,
   delivering a teraOPS of video horsepower.
Fits 4-, 8- and 16-lane PCI Express slots (non-graphics)
256 MBytes memory
Approximately 15 Watts typical power, 5 Watts idle power
2.7”x 5” board dimensions, single-slot clearance

Easy to install
Based on the PCI Express® standard, the accelerator card is easy to    install and is compatible with more systems, compared to the older    PCI/PCI-X standard.

Ease of Deployment and Support
PCI Express is inherently easier to install and support than older
   interface standards
Extensive testing with multiple industry test labs helps ensure
   compatibility with  Apple Intel-based systems.

Apple Mac OS® X Leopard
Laptops with ExpressCard slot and a Magma™ PCIe ExpressBox™
