AvediaStream Encoders

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

Flexible and easy to use, AvediaStream Encoders integrate seamlessly with any Exterity IP video solution or industry-standard equipment. Encoders can also be enhanced with system management, monitoring and control from the Exterity AvediaServer, which provides an easy way to control content delivery to each individual screen.

Streaming video content 'Beyond the LAN'

Exterity Encoders can extend TV and video streams outside conventional LANs for delivery to the internet and mobile devices. Streaming protocols HLS and RTSP enable encoder AV sources to contribute to Content Delivery Network environments, or stream directly to mobile devices and desktop monitors.

Deliver Content Securely

Broadcasters, media operators and organizations need to safeguard content streamed via their enterprise IP video system and protect the material from illegal copying and distribution.

Exterity meets the demand for secure delivery of content-protected or sensitive video with the addition of support for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCPv2), which enables users to extend protection through the network from Exterity Encoders. Refer to the Secure Video section for more information.
