The Drake ND-24-IP is a low-cost professional MPEG-2 and H.264 decoder that is capable of receiving content from off-air, clear QAM, and IP sources. The ND-24-IP is capable of simultaneously outputting video content in SDI, HDMI and component formats. SDI outputs are available in 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, or SD-SDI formats. The unit can be used as a stand-alone high-quality decoder or used in conjunction with other IP encoders, to provide an end-to-end IP video delivery solution over a managed network.
When the ND-24-IP decoder is used with Drake’s PEG PLUS Encoder and a Zixi Link License, it can provide a point-to-point reliable IP video transport from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. The ND-24-IP can also be used in a point-to-multipoint application, where the ND-24-IP would decode the IP-based Zixi protocol stream from a Zixi Broadcaster.
