Designs for the Broadcast/Professional Audio Video markets support the highest levels of performance. They capture, process, convert, aggregate, store and transmit the wide range of Audio and Video standards. Many of the early Broadcast and Professional standards or products can quickly migrate to the other markets- Surveillance, Industrial and Consumer- as volume increases and prices come down so yesterdays Broadcast or Professional designs become tomorrow’s Surveillance, Industrial or Consumer standards.

Surveillance/Industrial Audio/Video designs in the Capture category are primarily involved with the creation of image data from sensors and includes pre-processing for image enhancement and visibility or audio enhancement best done prior to compression and transmission of the captured data.
Surveillance/Industrial Audio/Video designs in the Process category include complex image and audio processing done after the transmission of the data to a centralized server. Format conversion, encoding, encryption and compression are all common functions done at this stage.
Surveillance/Industrial Audio/Video designs in the Transmit/Receive category include a variety of data transmission devices using standard interfaces like USB, Ethernet, Optical communications and wireless as well as decoders and converters needed for processing Audio/Video data prior to the actual use of the image or audio data.
Surveillance/Industrial Audio/Video designs in the Listen/View category include the last stage of Audio/Video processing typically resulting in the display of the final image or playing of the actual sound represented in the digital data. Storage of archived data is also a common function needed in Surveillance and Industrial applications.
