MediaStar 4K Encoder with SDI & HDMI inputs (700-498)
The unit is a 1RU rack mounting unit that has both HDMI and 12G SDI inputs. The incoming video and audio is encoded, encrypted and then multicast onto the LAN as a live TV stream.
The unit has a mini HDMI or a 12 Gbps SDI input for a single 4K60 input encode, and 4 3G SDI inputs when encoding 4 separate 1080p60 sources.
It can accept video input resolutions from 480p to 4K and can downscale picture resolutions and change framerates if required.
The video encoding quality can be adjusted to provide low bitrate streams or capped bitrate streams if required.
The encoder can provide H265/HEVC or H264/AVC encoded UDP MPEG2 transport streams (with audio) that can be efficiently multicast across a LAN. The TV streams can be AES encrypted so that the video and audio content is protected during transmission.
MediaStar Settops or PC/MAC software players pull the multicast streams from the LAN when users select the TV channel. They de-crypt the stream and then show the TV content on-screen.
The encoder can be setup with simple-to-use browser web pages produced by the encoder itself.
The Encoder will automatically inform the Media Manager software when new TV channels are configured so Media Manager can create new media icons. These icons can then be dropped onto playlists or channel selection lists that are allocated to individual displays or PCs.
The encoder is a 1RU rack mounting unit, based on a standard Dell server chassis, and comes complete with a three-year on-site warranty.
