Drake HDE24A

Drake HDE24A

High Definition Video Encoder Module


Product Overview

The Drake HDE24A HD encoder module generates either MPEG-2 or MPEG-4/H.264 video streams, with Dolby® AC3 or MPEG1-Layer2 audio. This Drake unit is designed to be installed into our Drake EH244 Q-IP or MEQ1000B video platforms, which provide the control and output interface to 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 Drake 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.
