Media Excel: HERO 4K debut16 September 2014
A 4K encoder for high-end live and file workflows, for contribution and distribution, is making its debut on the Media Excel stand.
The HERO 4K encoder, available as a 1RU or 2RU unit depending on configuration, enables the encoding of video in HEVC or AVC up to 60fps 4k/UHD.
It offers 4K pixel density and 10-bit colour depth and enables service delivery across conventional and constrained network pipelines such as copper, fibre or satellite.
“HEVC offers superior bandwidth efficiency,” said Norman C. Krebill, VP of sales at Media Excel. “We are doing single input, single picture 4K encoding, and it’s exciting to be able to deliver this type of encoding to 4K monitors.”
