The CHARM 100 uses a FPGA for high speed, low latency video interfacing and processing combined with the flexibility of the Jetson embedded processing which includes the following resources:
• Quad core ARM A57 CPU
• 256 CUDA core GPU
• Video accelerator for video encode/decode
The CHARM 100 processes two concurrent streams of standard definition or high definition video selected from the multiple analog and digital video inputs. The output video is genlocked to the input video and is comprised of low latency video from the selected input combined with processed video and graphics from the Jetson.


• Security and surveillance
• Manned vehicles


A rugged enclosure is available for the CHARM-100. The enclosure includes an input power supply which allows the CHARM-100 to be powered directly from vehicle and aircraft power sources.
