Continuum4K Hardware Encoders provide high quality HD / UHD encoder and decoder solutions for live production applications such as cinema, sports events and Virtual Reality.
Offering H.264 or H.265 video compression, iVrata codecs can be quickly connected to public networks to provide high visual quality, low bit rate, low latency video stream links.
The compact codec chassis provides an elegant solution to integrate digital video and audio signals with IP networks, with 12G SDI and Display Port 1.2 supporting HD to UHD video up to 60fps on a single video cable. The optional quad 3G SDI card supports multi-channel 1080p HD encode, streaming and decode operation.
Connection to the iVrata Stargate™ Video Network allows control over encode and decode functionality plus stream routing, archiving, transcoding and replication to enable public or private links between an encoder, one or more video decoders, or a CDN ingest point. Optional services enable remote operation of production equipment in combination with full resolution monitoring.
For live event applications and real time remote monitoring, minimizing latency is a critical requirement, iVrata codecs offer < 120ms latency from Input to Output** and support 8-bit and 10-bit precision with 4:2:0 or 4:2:2 color; with options for H.265, High Dynamic Range, Genlock and SMPTE Timecode to allow video production to cut costs by using public access internet links.
The unique combination of low operating cost, compact size, high quality and low latency make Continuum 4K Hardware Encoders an ideal choice in live production for broadcast, cinema and Virtual Reality.
