Digital Rapids Doubles Encoder Density With Powerful New Models

News Image
Digital Rapids, a leading provider of tools and solutions for bringing television, movie and Web content to wider audiences - has announced new dual-channel models in the StreamZ and StreamZHD families of studio encoding systems; StreamZHD Live ABR adaptive streaming encoder; and Flux family of video capture and pre-processing hardware.
The new models combine Digital Rapids' long-standing ability to output multiple formats, resolutions and bit rates simultaneously in real time with the capability to capture and encoder from two distinct sources concurrently.
Dual-channel, standard-definition StreamZ models feature SDI video input support with embedded audio. High-definition, dual-channel models of StreamZHD and StreamZHD Live ABR support HD-SDI, dual-link HD-SDI, 3G-SDI and standard-definition SDI video inputs.
Real-time down-conversion of dual-link and 3G-SDI inputs leverages new facility infrastructures and allows easy repurposing of such sources without the workflow inconvenience and expense of external format converters.
The new SD Flux-2200 and HD-Flux-4200 boards offer similar hardware functionality in half-height, half-length PCI Express cards. Flux cards are bundled with the tightly integrated Stream LE software, allowing customers to add Digital Rapids' renowned multi-format capture, encoding, transcoding and streaming capabilities to existing PC workstations.
Further supporting these increased input channel densities, the latest StreamZHD and StreamZHD Live ABR system configurations also feature increased processing power, enabling the encoding of a greater number of simultaneous multi-format outputs.
Darren Gallipeau, Product Manager at Digital Rapids, said: "Media organisations are processing a higher volume of content than ever before, from increased numbers of live channels for multiple target devices to an exponentially growing number of file-based deliverables.
"The new dual-channel models of our encoding solutions will help customers address these increased demands while lowering the capital costs, space and power requirements associated with separate single-channel encoders."
Digital Rapids' comprehensive range of encoding solutions combine unmatched visual quality and performance with flexible, feature-rich software, seamlessly supporting the transformation of content for live and on-demand multi-screen distribution opportunities and file-based applications.
The complete range of Digital Rapids solutions will be showcased in Stand number: SL6010 at the NAB 2011.
