Tyton VS2X

Rugged H.265 / H.264 Video Encoding & Streaming Solution

The Tyton VS2X is a powerful stand-alone rugged H.265 (HEVC) / H.264 video/audio encoding and streaming solution, with CoT/KLV metadata support, that is designed to serve video transmission needs in harsh field environments. With low latency encoding, streaming and low power consumption, the Tyton VS2X is non-intrusive and feature rich.

Extreme Reliability, Superior Performance

The Tyton VS2X encodes and streams four 3G/HD/SD-SDI or CVBS (NTSC/PAL) 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. SDI VANC KLV metadata is also supported and the product has the ability to edit/add VANC metadata. Multiple encoded video streams can be created per input. Video/audio data is compressed and delivered in an MPEG2TS container to the dedicated on-board Ethernet output as a UDP/RTSP 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 unit 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 can be output simultaneously over the 1 Gbps Ethernet.

The Tyton VS2X is ruggedized to survive harsh environments (shock, vibration, humidity) and temperatures from -40˚C to 71˚C (MIL-STD-810 & IP67). It comes with dedicated mounting holes and is orientation insensitive. Its rugged small form factor design makes it easy to use and integrate into any system design and meets the SWaP (size, weight & power) requirements for all of the vertical markets.
