Pico Digital’s professional-grade PD1000 HD encoder series allows the user to encode both HD and SD signals in MPEG2 or H.264 formats all in a single rack space. The HD encoder supports real time encoding while giving the flexibility of two, four, six, or eight encoder inputs in HDMI (in the clear), component, and composite (closed captioning). The HD encoder offers simultaneous QAM and IP outputs.
The PD1000 HD encoder series also has the ability for remotely controlled access and monitoring as well as virtual channel mapping. In addition, Dolby® Digital audio encoding is supported.
