The Drake HDE24A high-definition encoder module generates an MPEG2 or MPEG4 (H.264) video stream, with Dolby® AC3 or MPEG1 layer 2 audio. The HDE24 high-definition encoder accepts non-encrypted HDMI or component video inputs and can inject closed-captioning data from a synchronized composite video source (typically provided by the same decoder that produces the HD video stream). Composite analog audio inputs provide the audio source when component video inputs are used. Typically HDMI has embedded audio but if the HDMI is derived from a source converter that does not provide audio, such as DVI-to-HDMI, then the analog composite inputs may be used.
