EXTERITY AVSTR-E3555 AvediaStream e3555 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 e3555 encoder streams pre-recorded and live TV (news, sports, entertainment, educational) HD and SD channels over your existing network. It encodes and distributes content from 3G SDI, HD SDI or SDI broadcast sources such as professional cameras and recorders to an IP network. It can upscale to 1080p or downscale to SQCIF.
