EXTERITY AVSTR-E2320 AvediaStream e2320 Encoder



Use AvediaStream Encoders for any building, campus or metropolitan area in which video or decrypted TV are required, without the added expense of a separate cable network solely for TV.

Use your existing IP network to distribute video from cameras or DVD/Blu-ray players, or TV from set-top boxes.
  • Encode Standard Definition (SD) and High Definition (HD) video and audio into MPEG streams
  • Add display devices and users without degrading picture quality
  • Control video and TV access

    The AvediaStream e2320 encoder streams video (news, sports, entertainment, educational) channels over your existing network. It encodes and distributes content from a wide range of sources such as DVD Players, set top boxes and digital cameras to an IP network. The e2320 is a dual encoder so can stream simultaneously from two independent video sources.
