This paper presents an approach for designing of JPEG2000 video encoder board based on firmware programmable SRAM-style hardware CODEC. Typical, mostly used, electro optical sensor output signal and its basic characteristics are given and then signal-data size relationships are explained. Later, some fundamental information about JPEG2000 standard is summarized. System design blocks and implementation details are examined. Finally; analysis of real time behavior of such a system on combat system video network (CSVN) evaluated.
