Drake EH-244 Encoder & SDE-24
Here is our Sales Manager, Steve Deasey, to talk about the Drake EH-24 & SDE-24.
I’m Steve Deasey and we are here today to talk about the Drake EH244 Encoder, Chassi. A lot of times we get calls of different applications, I need to take a SD input or I need an HD/SDI input or I need component input and QAM out. And a lot of times, we find that this product is an affordable solution for your application.
This Chassi supports 6 different slots in the back and you can have different cards go into those slots. For example, here is the SDE24, which gives you two composite inputs. So I can get 2 inputs and a single QAM output on this card.
The other option is the HDE24. It gives you a single component input so that I can do component to QAM out. Or, if you need to go with an HD/SDI input, there is also a card for that as well. So I can take HD/SDI in, I can take component in, and I can do composite in, and I can do them all at the same time.
So it gives me a lot of flexibility, it also gives you 4 QAM outputs then. It also gives you an ASI output and it gives you IP output and you can do all of those simultaneously.
So the back of the unit, here are the different slots that we have. Obviously here are our six slots and here are the options. So when you do place an order, if you want to get the IP feature you order the EH244 Chassi with the QAM and the IP. Or if you want the QAM, the IP and the ASI there’s an option for that as well.
And in the back here we have an Ethernet port for your GUI interface or you go in and need to do any pre-configurations or doing something to your encoder, we have an Ethernet port for you there.
So the unit supports MPEG2, MPEG4, gives you PSIP supported, it has SCTE-18-EAS and, again, it has the Ethernet port in the back for the GUI interface.
We have a lot of solutions for you. This is a very affordable, very flexible solution for your digital headend. Thank you.
