RACK300 HEVC H.265 & AVC H.264 Encoder for Contribution & Remote Production over Unmanaged Networks by AVIWEST

The RACK Series is a range of video encoders designed for space-constrained live production, including contribution applications and multi-camera remote/at-home productions. The RACK Series is designed to be deployed in fixed locations, directly connected on wired IP networks, offering a real cost-effective alternative to satellite or fiber.

Description

RACK300

PREMIUM HEVC ENCODER FOR CONTRIBUTION & REMOTE PRODUCTION OVER UNMANAGED NETWORKS

The RACK Series is a range of video encoders designed for space-constrained live production, including contribution applications and multi-camera remote/at-home productions. The RACK Series is designed to be deployed in fixed locations, directly connected on wired IP networks, offering a real cost-effective alternative to satellite or fiber. The RACK Series is also designed to be used on vans or trucks, connected to a roof-mounted QUAD CellLink (active 3G/4G multi-antennas) and/or Ka satellite transmitter, enabling video broadcast from any location around the world, even in the midst of unpredictable and unmanaged network conditions. Equipped with a user-friendly, intuitive touchscreen, the unit supports multiple operational modes including live, record, live and record, file forward, and data hot spot for high-speed internet connectivity. The RACK Series embeds a best-in-class full HD hardware H.265/HEVC encoder, as well as an H.264/AVC encoder to reach low bitrates at sub-second latency without comprising on video quality. Powered by the double award-winning SST technology (Safe Streams Transport), the RACK encoder offers ultra-reliable transmission on any network, thanks to an intelligent IP-bonding stack that aggregates all available bandwidth without needing to stop a live transmission, even as connections are added or dropped.

RACK Series Rear Panel

SIMPLE

The RACK Series has been designed with ease-of-use in mind, the user-friendly intuitive interface allows broadcasting live videos in two touch screen taps.

VERSATILE

With its 1U ½ rack form factor, the product reduces costs and space requirements. Delivered in an “as-a-box” design, it can also be rack-mounted thanks to dedicated kits hosting one or two units in 1U.

HIGH PERFORMANCE

By implementing the best state-of-the-art H.265 / HEVC hardware encoder in a compact design enclosure, the RACK Series enables video professionals to provide seamless high-quality live video contribution and event coverage.

ANY NETWORKS

Leveraging Emmy® award-winning AVIWEST’s SST protocol, RACK Series ensures the delivery of live video even in the midst of unpredictable and unmanaged network conditions by aggregating simultaneously multiple network connections dynamically adapting the video bitrate, protecting stream content and supporting retransmission of lost data.

MAIN FUNCTIONS

LIVE & AUTO-RECORD

Broadcast premium quality video live over bonded IP networks: 3G/4G-LTE, Ethernet, and satellite networks such as BGAN, GX, and Ka Band. Combined with the automatic record feature, you can simultaneously record this live on the pluggable SD card with different resolution and bitrate to ensure optimal and constant video quality.

RECORD & PROGRESSIVE FORWARD

Record broadcast-grade quality video on the SD card, and optimize your time by forwarding the file progressively whereas the record is still in progress. This forward approach enables fast and error-free video delivery.

DATA HOTSPOT

By leveraging the transmitter’s aggregated network connections, switch the unit to behave as a mobile router in order to benefit a high-speed internet connection from anywhere.
