  • Dedicated decoding card with dual RJ45 Ethernet ports
  • On-board SQX decoding engine
  • 800 Mb/s from each Ethernet ‘input’

Decode multiple streams simultaneously:

  • Up to three 4096x2160p at 30 fps
  • Six 1920x1080p at 60 fps / 12 at 30 fps
  • 50+D1 resolution streams @ 30fps
  • Maximum will depend on H.264 profiles and levels of incoming media


Professional AV solutions require video to be received from a great many different sources and locations. The ability to receive and display video directly from online resources such as CCTV networks and remote desktop applications and combining them with local inputs has become an everyday part of a fully functional video wall display.

Datapath’s ActiveSQX PCIe plug in card is a powerful addition to systems that require a scalable hardware based decoding solution under a single operation system platform, such as Windows®.

The ActiveSQX includes a dedicated processor capable of decoding several IP streams simultaneously via the on-board ethernet ports.

Fully PCIe compatible, multiple ActiveSQX cards can be used in a single system to provide project scalability, giving users more processing and more simultaneous decodes.


The SQX technology is compatible with industry standards for video compression and streaming.
The ActiveSQX allows users to decode large numbers of High Definition1080p 60fps streams and multiple ActiveSQX cards reside in a single system to provide even more decoding capabilities.
In addition, the ActiveSQX can be placed in systems alongside graphics cards and video capture cards, such as the EMS Xtreme range, to provide a powerful addition to any control room environment.


The ActiveSQX is supported by the following operating systems: Windows 10 64 bit and Windows server 2012.
EMS SDK is included for software developers
