The 9223-D Dual-Channel 3G/HD/SD MPEG-4 Encoders provide a card-based solution for distribution of MPEG-4 encoding. Utilizing the openGear® open-architecture platform, the 9223-D offers scalable incorporation and the easy-to-use DashBoard™ setup and control operator interface. Up to 10 of the 9223-D cards can be installed in a 20-slot frame, offering distribution delivery of up to 20 individual or simulcast channels in a single frame, using less than 150W total, for reduced operating expenses. In addition to SD/HD-SDI inputs, the 9223-D provides the flexibility of supporting SD analog composite video and an analog audio stereo pair per input channel (using MPEG-1 Layer II audio encoding as standard).
The 9223-D offers the latest advances in video compression that delivers excellent video quality at very low bit rates. Unique encoding designs allow delivery of multiple HD and SD video services simultaneously. In addition to two ASI outputs, the 9223-D provides two Ethernet outputs, supporting full-duplex 100 Mb/s and 1 Gb/s operation. Input video auto-detect mode allows encoding to automatically configure an output that correspond to the input, with resolution and frame rate same as input, and scaling set to same as input or other applicable choices.
When using the Ethernet output, the 9223-D supports the traditional UDP/RTP/SPMTE 2022 FEC protocols, as well as the HTTP Live Streaming protocol for transmitting live video over the Internet. Using HTTP Live Streaming, the 9223-D can transmit broadcast-quality video to mobile phones (Apple and Android 4.0 supported), tablets, and a variety of consumer set-top boxes (such as the Amino A140 and the Roku Player).
RTMP support allows direct publishing of real-time, live content to Adobe® Media Servers or any other servers, web sites and CDNs with RTMP ingress, such as Justin.tv, UStream, LiveStream and Akamai. Publish professional-quality real-time SD/HD content to Internet viewers (including some critical features not available in PC-based software encoders) such as ancillary data support (closed-captioning, AFD) and SD-SDI/HD-SDI video inputs with embedded audio support – all in broadcast-grade video quality. SMPTE-2038 processing allows inserting generic ancillary data packets in the transport stream, with frame accuracy. Up to four DID/SDID pairs can be supported.
Full user remote monitor/control allows full card status and control access across a standard Ethernet network. Status monitoring is also available at card edge.
9223 encoders are also available in single encoding channel configuration.
