MCE-4500 SPARK HEVC Encoder

SPARK MCE-4500 Professional Encoder

.This device facilitates your experience of encoding video with the highest quality, alongside lowest bandwidth use possible. Full support of H.265/HEVC and H.264/MPEG-4 for video compression, and various standards for audio encoding such as MPEG1-Layer II, AAC-LC, AAC+, and HE-AAC V2, gives you the luxury of SD, HD, Full HD, and 4K video compression. The MCE-4500 Spark Professional Encoder supports video input resolution up to 1080p with 60 frames per second, beside DVB video broadcasting standard. This device also provides the highest quality output via different channels, namely DVB-S/S2 for satellite TV, DVB-T/T2 for Digital Terrestrial TV, DVB-ASI for studio networks, and IPTV. Spark Encoder has 3G-SDI video input and embedded audio input with up to 16 channels and delivers IP and ASI outputs concurrently. There are two Ethernet ports on this device for management and TS over IP purposes. The MCE-4500 Spark Professional Encoder can Unicast or Multicast video using IPV4 and implementing ProMPEG FEC. Support for a redundant power supply unit boosts this device's reliability to the next level, making it the ideal Encoder to perform under any workload 24/7/365
