High Definition Video Encoder
The HDE24A HD encoder module generates an MPEG-2 or MPEG-4/H.264 video stream, with Dolby® AC3 or MPEG1-Layer2 audio.
The HDE24A is designed to be installed into the EH244 or MEQ1000B platform, providing the control and output interface of the unit. This configuration of encoder module and host chassis provides the ultimate in bandwidth management and economy by allowing multiple HD and SD streams to be multiplexed together dependent upon the limitations of the bandwidth of the chosen output: QAM and/or ASI.
The HDE24A accepts non-encrypted HDMI or component video inputs and can inject Closed-Captioning data from a synchronized Composite video source (by the same decoder that produces the HD video stream is recommended). Composite analog audio inputs provide the audio source when component video inputs are used. Typically HDMI has embedded audio but if the HDMI is derived from a source converter that does not provide audio, such as DVI-to-HDMI, then the analog composite inputs may be used.
