DSx 264 Streaming & Recording Codec

RGB Spectrum’s DSx™ 264 codecs utilize advanced H.264 compression to provide best-in-class image quality and unmatched features for streaming and recording graphics and video over IP networks. In addition, the DSx 264 offers optional H.264 recording capabilities.

The DSx 264 is designed for applications in training, remote monitoring, distance learning, and debriefing in a variety of markets:  utilities, oil and gas, process control, security, and education.

The streaming/recording codec's H.264 high profile compression delivers the industry’s highest image quality. This H.264 recorder supports the highest resolution in the industry at up to 1920x1200 and 1600x1200 resolution.

The DSx codec offers optional recording to local USB storage devices and external network storage devices such as RAIDs or servers. Moreover, streaming and recording can be done concurrently – a DSx exclusive.

The DSx codec also provides a failsafe recording feature which protects the integrity of recordings-in process in case of a system accident, power loss or failure, another DSx exclusive.

IP streams can be decoded with commercial off-the-shelf PC software or, where very low latency is required, with DSx codecs. For configurations requiring decode-only functionality, the DSx 264D model offers a lower price point.

Additional features of this powerful H.264 recorder include on-screen display (OSD), external time code synchronization, event marking, variable speed playback, random access, confidence monitoring. You can also concurrently  control multiple DSx codecs with an optional GUI application.

To assist integration, the DSx 264 codec offers the choice of an external power module or Power-over-Ethernet (PoE). Remote operation is simple using an embedded, web-based graphical user interface.
