Video / TV Encoder - Streamer

Head-End Encoder - Decoder

Head-End 19'' Video Broadcast-Encoder and -Decoder

Delivery of media content over IP with SDI/HDMI inputs and outputs with optimal compression and quality

Live streaming is very time-sensitive, requiring an encoder capable of processing the video feed in real-time. You need a video encoder for streaming.
The main difference that sets hardware and software encoders apart—and the characteristic that allows video hardware encoders to perform more effectively—is that hardware encoding devices have the sole purpose of encoding.
BLANKOM offers professional DVB-TS conform 19 inch Rackmount Encoder/Decoder supporting various I/O Interfaces: ASI, HD-SDI and HDMI
to Uni-* Multicast Out- and Input streams.

Product range: Scalable Types and Models with different feature sets: 'EMU-' Headend- with HDMI-In (-86xx and -95xx) or SDI-In (-82xx and -92xx) and the Broadcast Version 'MPE-' Encoder -4400S (SDI) or H (HDMI) ...See also the Encoder-Streamer product page
