New PESA XSTREAM Streaming Media Appliance Delivers Multiple Synchronized AV Sources for IP Distribution
PESA (Booth SL4305) has unveiled PESA XSTREAM, a cost-effective, comprehensive package for digital-media capture, processing, distribution, and storage. Housed in a compact, 1RU form factor, PESA XSTREAM simultaneously encodes up to five independent video streams and eight audio streams concurrently from live or recorded video for multipath H.264 IP distribution with no sync or latency issues.
PESA XSTREAM captures H.264 IP camera streams, NTSC/PAL or SDI video up to 1080p resolution, video playback, and even computer-based content, such as PowerPoint slides, and prepares high-bandwidth MPEG4/H.264 broadcast streams for enterprise distribution and archive. When multiple sources are captured simultaneously, the streams remain associated and synchronized during the event. Storage options include a PESA internal 2.5-in. SATA drive.
With five individually addressable video outputs as well as an integrated quad-view output, PESA XSTREAM allows operators to stream live content over IP while simultaneously transmitting live digital content to a quad-view display and/or full-screen display. PESA XSTREAM can also synchronize discrete audio inputs to discrete video and IP video inputs and offers adjustable audio delay.
PESA XSTREAM is suited to varied market applications, including broadcast Webcasting and remote production, court recording, rental and staging events, telemedicine, virtual classrooms, and security and surveillance. An intuitive Web-browser management and control interface provides complete remote capabilities, which can eliminate the need for on-site personnel to stream content to a production facility.
PESA also provides access to its Application Programming Interface (API), allowing integrators to tailor applications to specific market segments. For example, PANAX develops video communication solutions for education, government, and healthcare.
PESA XSTREAM is slated to available in May priced at $9,995.
