VEGA-6000 Real-time 4K HEVC & IP Encoder & Decoder Appliances
Easily Add 4K Capabilities to Contribution Workflows
Advantech’s 4K HEVC Encoder and Decoder Appliances target power and space contained scenarios such as outside broadcasting and remote contribution in live events coverage. The appliances are 1U high, less than 270mm deep, and two can fit side by side in a standard 19" rack.
The VEGA-6300 supports 4K acquisition over built-in video interfaces, real-time H.264 and HEVC encoding, and video streaming in less than 25W. Remotely managed via HTTP/CGI, the VEGA-6300 is a simple and ultra-low-power way to add 4K HEVC encoding and streaming capabilities to portable, lightweight solutions.
The VEGA-6301 and VEGA-6311 are a contribution-grade HEVC encoding and decoding appliances that also support IP media interfaces. They feature a more conventional in-chassis application development environment with a front panel LCD display and control for additional user interaction. They can perform real-time 4K HEVC 10-bit 4:2:2 encoding and streaming in less than 80W and can form part of a flexible and efficient IP-based field production that significantly reduces cabling when compared to traditional SDI-based deployments.
The concept of local and personal broadcasting is proliferating, driven by web-accessible or OTT service providers such as Facebook, YouTube & Twitch. In addition to personal streaming from cellphones, many sports and music events and activities are being pushed to online media and this requires a more professional-grade solution, capable of handling industry standard SDI interfaces. Inevitably, the demand for 4K will invade this segment too, and providing a stable, high quality live video stream product becomes the key to this industry. This is where the VEGA-6300 can help. Based on renowned Ambarella technology, the VEGA-6300 is a small, lightweight, low power video processing engine featuring a range of HEVC and H.264 encoding features. It allows users to capture live video up to 4K/UHD resolution from SDI feeds or from an HDMI 2.0 input, encode for efficient transmission using the latest hardware HEVC compression technology, and then transmit to end users or content delivery networks across an Ethernet or wireless network (using USB network access “dongles”). The unit can create multiple output streams from a single video input and encode each using different codecs with different parameters. VEGA-6300 offers a friendly user interface across HTTP, and can be remotely controlled using a CGI-style API. The software package also implements the streaming protocols used by of most of the CDNs, making it straightforward for a user to can upload the video stream to a network.

The VEGA-6301 application ready appliance is a small, low power video processing platform, cramming professional video acquisition and capture interfaces, optional Video over IP terminations, a real-time 4Kp60 10bit HEVC encoder, and a full capability Intel Core series processing host into a half rack-width, short depth enclosure. It allows users to capture and adapt live video at up to 4K/UHD resolution from SDI or HDMI feeds and then encode for streaming to content delivery or distribution networks by using the latest hardware HEVC compression technology. A software upgrade option can enable live Video over IP capture and playout, allowing users to support standards like SMPTE 2022-6, Sony IP Live Production System, and AIMS/VSF recommendations with the TICO mezzanine codec. Compressed video can be streamed over a redundant Gigabit Ethernet connection, or a USB connected wireless access dongle. The application development environment is the same Linux or Windows based SDK supported by the VEGA 3000 series PCI Express adapter range, allowing extra deployment scalability options.

The VEGA-6304 is the first 8Kp60 Real Time HEVC Encoder enable real-time, professional-grade HEVC video processing at much less power consumption than a software-only solution. This application ready appliance is a portable size system with flexibility for rack-mount. VEGA-6304 equipped with user friendly application and interface so it allows users easy to capture and operate 8K encoding and streaming. 1-ch 8K Video input are supported to real time encoding at 10 bit colour depth with HDR support and 4:2:2 chroma subsampling. Aside from video compression, VEGA-6304 offers 22.2 audio channels acquisition by SDI interface.
The VEGA-6311 is a video encoder/decoder platform that uses H.265/HEVC high-efficiency video encoding technology to enable high quality 4K/UHD signal transmission in professional contribution applications, and all in a low-power half-1U chassis.
