The H.264 HDMI Encoder with VidCasterIP System from Data-Tronix is used with H.264 decoders to deliver streaming media over IP networks, providing complete end-to-end streaming systems. This live encoder offers one HDMI input, two streaming media outputs, and one stereo audio de-embedding output. It employs standards-based H.264/MPEG-4 AVC encoding and supports input signals up to 1920 x 1200 @ 60 Hz.
The encoder is capable of outputting two IP streams. One large IP stream supports a streaming resolution from 480p @ 60 Hz to 1920 x 1200 @ 60 Hz to view a video on the decoder side, while the other small one supports resolution 352 x 288 @ 5 Hz to easily fully-preview video from an encoder on PC software or iPad. The encoder supports PoE and can be remotely powered by compatible power source equipment such as a PoE Ethernet switch, thus eliminating the need for a nearby power outlet.
The encoder offers integration-friendly control features such as PC configurator and IP controller providing simple, flexible control and management options. In addition, it includes RS-232 pass-through capacity to control a third-party device, such as a projector, through IP configurator and IP controller on your computer. Encoding control provides adjustments for encoding bit rate and quality. By extending A/V signals over networks, A/V system capability is significantly expanded. The VidCasterIP System offers solutions for conference rooms, shopping malls, hotels, high-resolution signage, monitoring centers, schools, corporate training environments, and more.
