The 9990-ENC-H264-IP HD/SD-SDI/CVBS H.264 Encoders with Streaming IP Output provide a card-based solution for distribution of MPEG-4 encoding. These encoders are specifically for distribution, with cost savings of offering only streaming IP instead of IP and DVB-ASI which is not needed for distribution. The 9990-ENC-H264-IP is perfectly suited for IP video distribution over the Internet or over a dedicated IP link. Utilizing the openGear® open-architecture platform, the 9990-ENC-H264-IP offers easy-to-use DashBoard™ setup and control operator interface. Up to 10 of the 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 HD/SD-SDI inputs, the 9990-ENC-H264-IP provides the flexibility of supporting SD analog composite video and an analog audio stereo pair per input channel.
The 9990-ENC-H264-IP 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. The 9990-ENC-H264-IP 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. 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.
Using HTTP Live Streaming, the 9990-ENC-H264-IP can transmit broadcast-quality video to mobile phones (Apple and Android 4.0 supported) and tablets.
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.
