This 1 RU rackmountable video encoder supports streaming video up to UHD 4K video and is suitable for use by houses of worship, local government, corporate communications, and other facilities that need a flexible multi-stream video encoder.
The streaming encoder features four digital SDI inputs with embedded audio, and encodes the input signals into popular file formats such as Adobe Flash, Windows Media, MPEG4, and MPEG2 TS. It features HEVC, MPEG-2, and H.264 video transcoding, and MPEG-1, AAC, and Dolby audio transcoding for high-quality webcasting and live streaming. The unit features two RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet ports for management, and four for streaming.
The 9100-4DR can encode several streams simultaneously, with each stream configured for a different destination, stream type, and quality. The multi-core processors provide pre-processing features including video monitoring, cropping and rescaling, aspect-ratio conversion, frame-rate conversion, adaptive de-interlacing logo and slate insertion, closed caption, and teletext features. The built-in web browser interface provides easily accessible control of the unit from a network connection that allows you to start and stop streaming. The unit also allows you to monitor its functions and status using SNMP.
Two USB ports enable you to manage the device as well as transfer data. The front of the unit features a stereo headset jack, a video presence meter, and audio level meters to monitor your streams. 9100-4DR features a redundant dual 280W power supply to provide a backup for power loss.
