Teracue ENC-300 Overview

The ENC-300-HDSDI MPEG-4 AVC H.264 SD/HD Portable Encoder from Teracue is a compact H.264 HD/SD video encoding and live streaming blade designed for applications where single TV channels, camera signals, or monitoring feeds are distributed or published on a network or the Internet. It provides real-time compression of video and audio inputs. You can view these streams directly via network on PC, TV, or other display devices. It is designed without any moving parts, making them diskless, fanless, and noiseless.

The encoder incorporates low-latency signal compression, creating video streams in HD or SD resolution. To access the intuitive graphical user interface, use your web browser from any PC on the network; no special or additional tools are required. The remote network configuration is also supported over SNMP and serial control over the local COM port. Furthermore, the ENC-300-HDSDI supports talkback, allowing for audioconferencing and communication between encoder standpoint and viewer. Talkback to ENC encoders is supported by PCs. The Comport supports remote control of PTZ cameras and other peripheral serial equipment through its integrated, switchable RS-232/RS-422 port. The GPIO interface enables contact closure function from the web GUI, or pass-through from a decoder.
