Streaming video server: Sensoray touts high definition inputs, 1U package

The Sensoray new 2446 streaming video server accepts either standard or high definition NTSC or PAL video inputs with synchronized audio. The video is scaled to D1 for MPEG compression and transmitted using the RTP or UDP protocol. The encoded video is playable by commercial set top boxes such as the Amino, or on PCs running free open source software like VideoLan. The video into the 2446 can be encoded, transmitted, and displayed by a remote network decoder in less than a second.

2446 streaming video server

accepts either standard or high definition NTSC or PAL video inputs with synchronized audio. The video is scaled to D1 for MPEG compression and transmitted using the RTP or UDP protocol. The encoded video is playable by commercial set top boxes such as the Amino, or on PCs running free open source software like VideoLan. The video into the 2446 can be encoded, transmitted, and displayed by a remote network decoder in less than a second.

The 2446 has a highly customizable on screen display (OSD), or video overlay, which can display eight separate regions of graphics and/or text. A total of 64,000 pixels is available. An API is available to place and move graphics anywhere on the screen. OSD graphics can be edited from a remote Ethernet node and viewed by other observers on the network.

Four types of video outputs are available locally, including an SDI video stream containing the bit-map image and text overlays in real time. A DVI port is available for display on a local LCD display. Composite and S-Video outputs are also provided. All outputs are generated and scaled from a common input source.

Pricing starts at $4,231. Quantity price breaks are available.
