AQORD *HEVC IP Video Encoding Platform

OVERVIEW

aqord-hevc-digigram-video-encoder

Key Workflow: Based on the powerful HEVC codec, this robust platform guarantees premium video quality transport over low bandwidth networks of 4K and HD video contents.

AQORD *HEVC is a Hardware H.265/HEVC encoding/recording platform dedicated to the transport of professional-grade 4K, HD and SD video. This product allows transport of premium video picture quality over IP networks (satellite, fiber, xDSL) from one location to another as well as UHD content distribution to the home. Based on the HEVC video codec it compresses the raw video input into IP stream output to reduce bitrates by a factor of 600.

FEC, Dual Streaming and redundant power supply guarantees 7/24 contribution for mission critical video transport.

For the 4K version: By leveraging the high performance of the HEVC/H.265 compression algorithm, AQORD *HEVC-4K allows streaming of Premium UHD content with affordable bandwidth requirements on contribution networks.

AQORD *HEVC-4K is also the solution for transmission services companies and Telcos for distributing UHD content through IPTV, Satellite or DTT networks.
For the multi-HD version: Tighter production budgets should not keep Live events – particularly sporting events – from being distributed Live to viewers. Remote production provides a solution to shift Live production operations from costly remote locations to a cost-effective production base. With AQORD *HEVC Multi-HD, users have the ability to simultaneously encode up to four HD streams from several camera feeds in the same OB-compatible unit while minimizing bandwidth requirements from costly contribution networks.
