Professional Contribution H.264/MPEG-2/J2K Encoder

Interact with this product in a Layout Tool:

The 570ENC-HW-X19 features ultra-high video quality, low latency and efficient bandwidth utilization with an advanced architecture that supports J2K and H.264 (MPEG-4 part 10) compression. It is able to accept SD, HD and IP uncompressed inputs (SMPTE ST 2022-6 or ST 2110) and process for encoding.

The 570ENC-HW-X19 supports audio encoding of up to 16x embedded channels using a wide variety of audio compression cores including, but not limited to, MPEG-2, Dolby® E/AC3, AAC and audio pass-through. The 570ENC-HW-X19 includes a dedicated control port that offers a built-in web server for quick and easy configuration, including true SNMP control from the award-winning VistaLINK® PRO NMS when paired with a frame controller.

For those mission-critical applications, the 570ENC-HW-X19 can be intelligently managed using the Evertz Compression Systems Manager (CSM) software which offers complete provisioning, monitoring and redundancy management of the contribution compression head end.

The 570ENC-HW-X19 is fully feature upgradable in the field, allowing for a cost-effective migration up to a fully-optioned platform capable of 4:2:2 10-bit with IP out. The 570ENC-HW-X19 offers the best performance and versatility available from a world-class contribution encoder.
