Condor VPX-H265-SDI

3U VPX H.265 (HEVC) / H.264 Video Encoding & Streaming Solution

The Condor VPX-H265-SDI is a stand-alone rugged 3U VPX H.265 (HEVC) / H.264 video/audio encoding and streaming solution, with CoT/KLV support, metadata insertion & extraction, that is designed to serve video transmission needs in harsh field environments. With low latency encoding, streaming and low power consumption, this unique product offers a powerful solution for customers designing VPX systems.

H.265 (HEVC) / H.264 Video Encoding & Streaming Solution​

The Condor VPX-H265-SDI encodes and streams two 3G/HD/SD-SDI video inputs simultaneously using the highly versatile and widely used video encoding standards H.265 or H.264. H.265 (High Efficiency Video Coding or HEVC) provides increased video quality with a lower bitrate as compared to H.264. Two stereo line in audio inputs can be merged with the video streams. CoT/KLV metadata can be accepted over two RS-232 ports or over Ethernet and then merged with the video stream. It can create multiple encoded video streams per input. Video/audio data is compressed and delivered in an MPEG2TS container to the dedicated on-board Ethernet output as a UDP stream with optional RTP header. The H.265 encoding parameters are highly configurable with support for main profile and variable and constant bitrate configurations (512 Kbps to 30 Mbps). H.264 can also support baseline, main, and high profile. The card can be controlled/monitored over Ethernet in several ways, including SNMP 3.0 as well as a well-defined API. A web-based configuration GUI is also available that facilitates real-time configuration. The encoded video streams are transferred back to the host via the on-board Ethernet output. This product is available in conduction cooled with Rear I/O.
