CABSAT 2013: Cobham to launch new HD MPEG4 IP encoder
RF specialist Cobham is to present a new HD MPEG4 IP Encoder at CABSAT 2013 that features IP connectivity via 3G, 4G and LAN. Specifically engineered for broadcast applications, the high capacity, 3G capabilities included in the IP encoder ensure access to super-fast wireless 3G internet connections from even the most remote locations.
Easily connected to any camera, the IP encoder features connectivity for composite, SDI, HD-SDI and HDMI video inputs, and audio input options that include balanced analogue audio running on 48V phantom power. Broadcast-standard IFB talkback is available as an option to all models, while the IP encoder also includes a USB port for high speed file uploads or for use with a 3G/4G dongle. The encoder is available in three forms: a small “brick”, camera back or rack mount.
Cobham’s broadcast systems director, Stuart Brown, comments: “Our IP encoder provides even more bit rate efficiency with the added benefit of the ability to operate in standard, low and ultra-low latency modes. And with power consumption rated at a very low 7-9 watts, this encoder is ready for extended periods of deployment in virtually any environment.”
