New video encoder range


Pixelmetrix has announced a new addition to its product portfolio – the Pelican family of video encoders.

Built smaller than a 3.5 inch hard drive, the compact, rugged Pelican encoder is ideal for remote news gathering, enterprise video, hospitality, government, education and healthcare applications. Set up and configuration is a snap with the built in HTML5 web interface. All Pelican models support live IP streaming from the built-in Ethernet port.

Pelican-Analog is for composite analog video and stereo analog audio inputs, Pelican-SD is for SDI video with embedded stereo audio as well as mini-XLR with balanced audio, while Pelican-HD supports HD-SDI video with embedded stereo audio as well as mini-XLR with balanced audio.

A wide range of video standards is supported, ranging from 320×180, all the way to 1080p. Both MPEG-2 and H.264 formats are supported as well.

“We are excited about this latest addition to the Pixelmetrix product line,” Danny Wilson, Pixelmetrix president and CEO, enthused. “Our DVStor products have been deployed in more and more systems for alternative playout, time shift and disaster recovery. But to make a complete system, our customers always had to go somewhere else for the encoder. Now, with Pelican, our clients can enjoy one stop shopping for their needs,” he added.
