PH1-Pro4 can compress/decompress 3-stream full-HD video data simultaneously. For VGA, 12 streams can be handled simultaneously. With PH1-Pro4, you can quickly develop a home media server to view different images simultaneously through different media, such as TV, smartphone, tablet, PC, and so on. Implementing PH1-Pro4 into cloud-based products allows them to be a low-power system with minimal component count. Driver assistance system and security monitoring system are also achieved with small size and low-power consumption. In addition, PH1-Pro4 upconverts video data from full-HD to 4K2K.
