Principal Architect
Oil and Gas Equipment Manufacturer
We needed a vendor that could meet our rugged specs especially in terms of shock and vibration and we found that vendor in Systel. They have the shock and high velocity equipment that we need. To ensure the quality of Systel’s products before purchasing, we environmental tested (MIL-STD-810) Systel’s 4U rack mount computers in their transit case and the computers passed with flying colors. Today, we buy a variety of products from Systel including 4U rack mount computers (IPC44410) and 19" displays (FPD7192). Systel was our first choice in 2005, and we have been buying from them ever since.

A Primer on Video Encoding

Whenever you watch a video – whether it is streamed over a network or downloaded onto a device – the chances are that the original files have been compressed and the file size shrunk to make it more manageable for the bandwidth and storage available to you at the time. This compression is known as video encoding and it is a hugely important process to ensure that video data can be stored and transmitted efficiently, even over constrained networks where bandwidth is limited.
