Professional Series MPEG-2 HD/SD Encoder
Professional Series MPEG-2 HD/SD Encoder


Product Code: BLT-HDE-HVC-PRO


HDE-HVC-PRO (Professional Series MPEG-2 HD/SD Encoder) is especially designed to deliver superior motion optimization for programming such as fast-paced live sporting events and is configurable in either HD or SD mode via its web interface.

When operating in HD Mode, the encoder accepts one (1) program from any one of the following inputs: 1xHDMI (unencrypted), 1xVGA or 1xComponent. In SD Mode the encoder accepts up to four (4) standard-definition (SD) input programs in NTSC baseband Audio/Video format. Each AV input program is digitized, MPEG-2 encoded, and then multiplexed into one Multi-Program Transport Stream (MPTS). The output (in either HD or SD Mode) is available in the following formats simultaneously: 1xQAM, 1xASI, and 1xIP (GigE; HD-SPTS, SD-MPTS).

The encoder supports Dolby® Digital audio encoding, and Closed Captioning (EIA-608). It is also equipped with an Emergency Alert System (EAS) interface. A front-panel RF test point allows for monitoring/testing of the QAM output without service interruption. Comprehensive remote monitoring and control is accomplished using any standard Web browser via a rear-panel 10/100Base-T Ethernet connection.
