B-280E-SDI Barracuda Encoder Blade - SD H.264 IP Video Encoder - SDI, Composite, S-Video, and Audio input; 150 kbps to 8 Mbps; chassis required.
BarracudaTM delivers high performance H.264 encoding in a uniquely compact form factor. For standard definition encoding
needs, the Barracuda adheres to Haivision’s “Encode Once” design, offering the ability to deliver multiple streams at different
resolutions and bitrates to multiple destinations. Supporting a wide variety of IP streaming standards, the Barracuda is an ideal
contribution tool for almost any application. The Barracuda also supports both forward error correction (FEC) and encryption,
making it a perfect fit within Haivision’s Furnace end-to-end H.264 IP video solution.
Integrated with the Furnace. Haivision’s Furnace system is an end-to-end IP video system that provides network resiliency
through forward error correction and absolutely secure video distribution to the ”zero footprint” InStream™ player and the
Stingray™ set-top box through the support of AES encryption. The Barracuda supports these critical standards so that companies
can be confident that the video is 100% secure - from the point of encoding all the way to the viewers. The Barracuda provides
end-to-end confidence that only those who are allowed to view specific content can access that content, and that they cannot
record or copy that content directly.
Efficient H.264. The Barracuda is based on the highly efficient H.264 compression standard, saving over 50% of the bandwidth
and disk space required by MPEG-2 IP video deployments. The Barracuda accepts Composite, S-Video, and Serial Digital Interface
(SDI) standard definition inputs. It also supports both balanced and unbalanced stereo audio as well as digital audio embedded
within the SDI signal. The Barracuda can produce H.264 streams at full resolution and full frame rate at up to 8 Mbps, and yet with
built-in downscaling and partial frame rate support can emit streams as low as 150 kbps.
