Extron introduces new streaming media decoder card for Quantum Ultra
Extron has announced the introduction of its new Quantum IN SMD 100 multi-channel H.264 decoder card for the Quantum Ultra videowall processor.
Quantum Ultra is a modular 4K videowall processor that features high-performance scaling and windowing technology to accommodate a wide range of applications. It features the Extron Vector 4K scaling engine and HyperLane video bus capable of carrying a multitude of high-resolution sources for unmatched real-time performance.
“The new multi-channel H.264 decoder card extends Quantum Ultra’s capabilities by providing hardware decoding of streamed video, making it ideal for traffic management and security environments,” says Extron vice president of worldwide sales and marketing Casey Hall.
The Quantum IN SMD 100 can decode up to four 1080p/60, eight 1080p/30, or 16 SD resolution streams from IP cameras, Extron streaming media encoders and other H.264 encoders. It’s compatible with H.264, MPEG-2 and Motion JPEG streams at bit rates up to 40Mbps, and features two independent network ports. It also supports push and pull streaming session management with a variety of transport protocols, as well as the video sections of ONVIF Profile S. This makes the IN SMD 100 compatible with a wide variety of streaming devices.
