R.L. Drake’s PEG PLUS encoder is a stand-alone MPEG-2 or H.264 digital video PEG channel encoder with a single SD/HD-SDI, or composite video with left and right audio input, and an IP-encapsulation output via a single SFP Ethernet port. A separate RJ45 10/100 Ethernet port is provided for control and monitoring. Video encoding is available in MPEG-2 or H.264 and PCM-embedded audio can be encoded to either Dolby® Digital, MPEG1-Layer 2 stereo, or AAC stereo. The PEG encoder is capable of outputting two HD or SD streams in either codec with resolutions of 480i, 720p, and 1080i. Powered by a separate 110V AC power unit, the PEG PLUS is a small, modular, desktop model.
The PEG PLUS encoder is available with an optional Zixi output protocol that provides the ability to stream content in H.264 format over an unmanaged network, including the public internet. The Zixi UDP based video-optimized protocol provides professional broadcasters, sports networks, and service providers a mechanism to adapt to the public internet using standard IP networks as a way to ingest and transport broadcast quality video.
