Exterity announces firmware upgrade for Encoders e3535 & e3555 (V1.5) delivering low latency with full HD multicast streaming (June 2015)

Edinburgh, 26th June 2015 – Exterity, the leading provider of enterprise IP video solutions, today announced a new firmware release to the Encoder range. 

Exterity Encoders stream live and pre-recorded video and audio over an IP network, creating an IPTV channel from the output of a wide range of sources, including digital cameras, set-top boxes, digital signage systems and personal computers.

The new firmware upgrade applies to the e3535 and e3555 Encoders. They can provide powerful encode options allowing input video to be up-scaled or down-scaled, delivering output streams from 1080p60 (1920x1080p) to SQCIF (128x96p) with full control over bit and frame rate. The e3535 has HDMI/RGBHV/YPbPr input options and the e3555 supports SDI/HD SDI/3G SDI. Both encoders are embedded systems in blade format offering low power consumption and ‘hot swap’ capability to maximise uptime.

The new features for V1.5 include

  • Low latency - Full multicast HD stream delivery with sub 500ms latency from encoder source to Exterity Receiver TV display. Low latency with multicast streams provides an unlimited numbers of clients with near real-time video and audio delivery. This is particularly important in live video environments where any video delay really matters.
  • Configurable GOP length - Optimize stream delivery for low latency, or to match receiving clients. Important when stream is delivered onto Apple or similar clients with precise GOP requirements.

All existing e3535 and e3555 Exterity Encoders covered by AvediaCare can be upgraded at no extra cost to take advantage of these powerful new features. Please contact your reseller for more information.
