Highly Reliable, Real Time, 3 RU, Quick Starting, Standards Compliant, Embedded Linux® Based, Remotely Manageable, H.264 or Optional H.265 Streaming Encoder with Multiprotocol, Multiwrapper IP Outputs. Features Real Time Encoding of Content from 2 to 16 Cameras or Video Servers. Supports IP Unicast or Multicast Transport Streams. Output Resolution is 1080p, 720p, 480i, QCIF, or Any Other Resolution. Designed for Streaming to CDNs, Servers, ISPs, and End Users who Expect HLS, RTMP, DASH, or Transport Streams. Typical Dedicated Encodes are 2 to 16 Channels. Supports 50 Simultaneous HLS Users. With Optional Atlas™ Add-on, Supports 1,000 RTMP, DASH, and/or HLS Users Natively. Perfect for multicamera multiangle video streaming.

Specifically designed for Live Streaming with Concurrent Multi Resolution or Multi Bit Rate Stream Outputs.  Redirects Replica Streams (proxies) from each output to multiple locations with various “Wrappers” such as HLS, RTMP, etc.  Audio output is AAC, MPEG-1 Layer II, optional MP3, and/or optional “SurCode for Dolby Digital” AC-3.  Encodes each source at .1 to 15 Mbps.

Will encode the 16 HD inputs to H.264 or optional H.265 with HD, SD, or sub SD resolutions at .1 to 15 Mbps at most any GOP size, frame rate, refresh rate, or aspect ratio.  Outputs can be high, medium, and low bitrate streams for each input.  Continually tested with the latest ATLAS™, Adobe® and Wowza® servers, NewTek™ TriCaster® and many CDNs.

IN:  Multiple (up to 16) SDI and/or HD-SDI inputs, at the same time.
OUT: Concurrent Multiresolution IP streams with Multiple Wrappers and Multiple Protocols suitable for multiple devices
