Key Workflow: this IP platform provides point to point video transportation over IP and satellite networks

AQORD *LINK/LE is a Hardware H.264 encoding/decoding platform dedicated to the transport of professional-grade SD and HD video. This superior encoding/decoding technology drives the transport of high video quality (premium picture quality) streams over IP networks (satellite, fibre, xDSL) from one location to another.

At a glance

AQORD*LINK/LE encoder enables users to broadcast from live events. Placing the encoder at the event, the source video is compressed and sent as a video stream over an IP link. The stream is received by an in-studio decoder which decompresses the source signal for accurate, high quality video production and delivery.  

  • Developed for television broadcasters streaming live events
  • Transport live high quality (premium picture quality) video content from a live event to the studio using IP networks (including satellite, fibre, and xDSL)
  • Up to 200x compression utilizes all available bandwidth and maintains high quality video and audio output
  • Zero dropped signal or interruptions

Key features

  • Compression technologies reduce video and audio data streams by a factor of 200 while maintaining video and audio quality.
  • Reliable 24/7 streaming
  • Affordable satellite link with KA-SAT network compatibility
  • Flexible: encoder/decoder in one easy-to-transport unit
  • Affordable entry level product 
  • Automatic error connect with FEC: automatically recovers lost or corrupted data
  • Dual Streaming for redundant always available link: redundant link with automatic fail over ensures safe, always available, high quality video transmission even in the event of a partial IP network failure
  • Centralized WiFi management: configure, manage, and operate AQORD *LINK/LE using standard WiFi-enabled devices including tablets, PCs, and smartphones. No special network configurations are required
  • Easy to use / easy to install
  • Manage by tier party monitoring system using XML API
