Servers for streaming video

Oct. 25, 2007
The 2446 family of streamingvideo servers accepts either standard or high-definition NTSC or PAL video inputs with synchronized audio.

Video is scaled to D1 for MPEG compression and transmitted using the RTP or UDP protocol. Encoded video can be played on commercial set-top boxes such as the Amino, or on PCs running open- source software like VideoLan. Video into the 2446 can also be encoded, transmitted, and displayed by a remote network decoder in less than a second. The on screen can display eight separate regions of graphics and text. A total of 64-k pixels is available. An API can place and move graphics anywhere on the screen. And graphics can be edited from a remote Ethernet node and viewed by other observers on the network. It generates four types of video outputs locally: SDI video stream containing the bit-map image and text overlays in real time, a DVI port is available for display on a local LCD, and composite and S-Video outputs. All outputs are generated and scaled from a common input source.
