Real time, professional grade, 1 RU, quick starting, standards compliant, embedded Linux® based, remotely manageable, SD or HD (SDI), H.264/AVC Encoder with built-in media server streaming support for 500+ simultaneous HLS, DASH, and/or RTMP users, relying on a SDI/HD-SDI input card and a “minimal” Linux® kernel (residing in a flash memory device) that is highly reliable and coupled to a friendly GUI that can be run from anywhere.

The MultiStreamer DIG/IP™ runs on an advanced Intel® Xeon® 4 Core processor. Multiple IP Streams can be produced with most any industry standard “protocols” like UDP or RTP and “Wrappers” such as HLS, RTMP, etc. Audio output is AAC, Ogg Vorbis, MPEG-1 Layer II, optional MP3, and/or optional “SurCode for Dolby Digital” AC-3. Supports closed captioning and teletext with overlay.

We encode the primary stream to multiple resolutions at .1 to 15 Mbps at most any GOP size, frame rate, refresh rate, or aspect ratio. As mentioned we can simultaneously create high, medium, and low bitrate streams to hand off appropriately scaled streams to your content delivery networks (CDNs) with required authentication, for "One to Many" distribution. Supports stream scheduling and archiving option.
