More about IPTV Encoders

Encoding can cover a lot of ground and understanding can be eased with just a bit of explaining. An IPTV encoder accepts video sources and encodes that video into a compressed MPEG stream. The IPTV encoder then package the stream for transport over an Ethernet system.

Full Description & Specifications

The dual-program QIP-SDI 2, with two SDI inputs, sets a new standard for sports, motion and digital signage encoding. Dual hardware scalers accept content up to 3G 1080p, shapes digital signage for edge-to-edge presentation, and compensates for non-broadcast and PAL refresh rates. Encoding as MPEG-2 or H.264, the QMOD-SDI 2 can output the content as two SPST Multicast or Unicast IPTV streams. Options include dual-language SAP audio, easy front-panel setup and alternate audio and NTSC video inputs. Web setup, monitoring, and firmware updates are available via USB and Ethernet ports. Two-across mounting offers up to four programs per rack space, with the ability to mix models to handle HDMI, SDI, Component, and NTSC video sources.
