Multiplexing Encoder Host with QAM and IP Output

Product Overview

The Drake EH244-Q IP Encoder Host Chassis provides an ideal platform for MPEG-2 or MPEG-4/H.264 video encoding needs due to its many flexible and configurable output options. Designed to house any combination of Drake’s popular HD or SD encoder modules, including the SDE24, HDE24A, and SDI24A. The Drake EH244-Q IP is designed with a total of 6 input bays and an internal multiplexer that allows the user to construct custom program multiplexes and output them in any combination of RF QAM or IP based on the output configuration ordered.
