High VQ Low Latency HEVC Encoder & Decoder

Interact with this product in a Layout Tool:

MIO-XPS is part of Evertz XPS encoder series, a set of high quality and low latency video encoder decoder devices for video transport, remote production, cloud on-ramp, Internet streaming and disaster recovery applications.

As a part of the SCORPION platform, MIO-XPS has the advantage of leveraging the catalogue of signal support and processing functions in the MIO toolkit. Embed discrete microphones, timecode or GPIs, perform up/down/cross conversion, color correction or adjust audio levels. Create your customized remote network on-ramp using MIO-XPS in the SCORPION platform.
