The 3480SLKE encoder platform has the flexibility to house both HD and SD SDI inputs, as well as H.264 and MPEG-2 video codecs. The streaming IP output can be configured for either a unicast or multicast delivery that can be decoded by a wide variety of hardware, software, set top boxes and consumer style decoders. Channel configurations include encoding of up to 8 HD or 16 SD signals (720p, 1080i, 525i or 625i in either H.264, MPEG-2 or a mix). Built on modern technology and leveraging years of experience in 1RU and modular real-time compression technology, the 3480SLKE encoder has been designed to deliver enterprise leading video quality in a cost effective platform. The configuration of the device is fully flexible allowing the user to configure various encoding parameters including bitrate, GOP size, visual filter effects, network interface, and more. This device can de-embed the audio from the incoming video signal and apply MPEG-1 layer II, AAC or Dolby? Digital AC-3 audio encoding. The 3480SLKE encoder has a dedicated control port that offers a built-in web server for quick and easy configuration. SNMP control is also fully integrated for use with VistaLINK?. The 3480SLKE encoder is a simple yet elegant solution for cost effective HD/SD-SDI enterprise streaming over IP networks.
