Equipped with an advanced H.264 hardware encoder, the CE330B enables the system to encode without impacting the CPU’s computing power and still provide high quality video. This feature will help balance the CPU loading and will increase the system’s reliability. As a result, the CE330B will significantly reduce the computing efforts on hardware and software allowing the user to focus on other important parts of the application in hand. The CE330B offers HDMI input and output allowing to connect an extra monitor for live previewing. It eliminates the need for an additional video splitter to achieve identical functionality. The pass-through function guarantees a smooth playback even while recording, which typically requires considerable CPU usage with a regular PC.
