DSx 264/264D Codecs
The DSx™ 264 codec provides advanced H.264 compression for best-in-class streaming and recording.
The codec encodes and streams graphics and HD video at up to 1920x1200 resolution, using H.264 high profile compression, which delivers superior image quality compared to the main and baseline profiles used in most other codecs. In addition, the codec offers optional recording to local USB storage devices as well as to external network storage devices, such as RAIDs or servers. Moreover, streaming and recording can be done concurrently.
IP streams can be decoded with commercial off-the-shelf PC software or, where very low latency is required, DSx codecs. When decoding, the unit can display one graphics/HD image or four SD images.
Leading-edge features include on-screen display (OSD) with titling and time code, external time code synchronization, and confidence monitoring. Optional recording and replay offers concurrent recording and streaming, event marking, and variable speed playback. Operation is made simple using an embedded web-based graphical user interface. Multi Channel Manager™ software provides simultaneous control of multiple DSx units.
The codec is packaged in a compact enclosure and can be mounted in a single/dual unit 1RU tray for rack mounting. To assist integration, the codec offers Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) as well as external power.
The combination of superb image quality, rich feature set, compact size, robust packaging, and 24/7 reliability makes the DSx 264 codec the ideal solution for mission-critical applications.
