4Fiber, HDMI, Analog, and Additional SDI I/O Options
The BrightEye NXT 445 Streaming Encoder from Ensemble Designs encoding functionality produces simultaneous transport streams including one high-resolution and one low-resolution unicast stream, one multicast stream, and a DVB-ASI stream. The DVB-ASI formatter produces a DVB-ASI format stream that can be sent to a BNC or Fiber port for distribution. Built-in test signal generators allow black and bars to be routed without burning valuable inputs. The built-in Web Server allows full control of the routing and setup functions from virtually anywhere with any browser-enabled device such as iPads, iPhones, or Android devices. The LCD display shows full motion video of your sources, audio meters, and the source currently routed to a destination. The BrightEye NXT 445 allows full set-up and control from the front panel of the unit. There is no need for external computer control. However, if you use your computer, the built-in web server provides the same kind of set-up and control functionality from virtually anywhere with any web browser enabled device.
Specifications applicable when appropriate option licenses are activated.
Automatic Up/Down/Cross Format Conversion
Adding the 445K-X license option makes it easy to integrate signals from all types of equipment, regardless of the video format. Various formats of high definition and standard definition content can be converted to a common format and routed seamlessly to destinations. Standard definition sources can be up converted to high definition, as well as cross converting from one HD format to another. All you have to do is select a SMPTE standard for a particular destination, and all sources routed to that destination will be converted to that format automatically. The 445K-X license option also adds Clean and Quiet Switching to cleanly and instantly switch or dissolve your sources. Feed the NXT 445 with cameras and other asynchronous sources and take the output to air or to production equipment.
The 445K-DEC license option adds an MPEG decoder. MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 transport streams can be received via unicast or multicast on Gigabit Ethernet and decoded to 3G, HD, or SD-SDI with embedded audio, and can be mixed or intercut with other sources connected to the NXT 445. Decoded and encoded video can be seen in real-time and full motion on the LCD display on the front of the unit. The full duplex codec allows simultaneous use of the encoder and decoder.
Fiber, HDMI, Analog, and Additional SDI I/O Options
The SFP (small format pluggable) cages can be populated with dual SFPs that have fiber optic or other connectors, allowing you to determine the best connector for your installation. Adding SFPs gives you true flexibility in combining electrical BNC, HDMI and fiber optic inputs and outputs. The 445K-IO License Option also activates additional SDI I/Os.
