The Bluecherry BC-H04120A is true hardware compression card supported by our Video4Linux(2) driver. Recently tests with this driver has shown siginificant CPU / memory saving over standard software compression cards.
This card has several features not commonly found on traditional Linux supported MPEG-4 encoders, including:
Each port has a MJPEG and H.264 encoder, each can be opened separately.
Each device shows up as a Video4Linux(2) device and you have access to each encoder using standard Video4Linux APIs.
Each port is loaded up as an ALSA sound device, allowing for encoding G.723 audio from each audio input.
The driver exposes the video output as a ‘display’ device, allowing you to control the video output (specify which inputs are displayed on the composite output)
Our driver is available in the latest kernel releases, in the ‘staging’ directory.
Note: The device has the following features, which are currently not supported in the driver: Hardware (on-card) motion detection. Hardware motion detection is currently only supported in our software.
