Advantech 4K HEVC Encoding Module for Live Video Applications Now Generally Available
May 27, 2021, Taipei, Taiwan - With the rapid improvement of network performance and the popularity of various media channels, online video has gradually become an indispensable method of communicating. Advantech has officially launched the professional 4K HEVC encoding module, VEGA-2002, which can be easily integrated into various workflows and setups for live broadcasting.
VEGA-2002 is a small, low power, real-time encoding module based on video
compression from leading video technology provider Ambarella which supports live
UHD resolution HEVC and AVC codecs. It features 4Kp60 10bit video acquisition
through built-in SDI or HDMI inputs and the encoded video and audio can be
streamed to Ethernet or directly to mobile or Wi-Fi networks by connecting a
USB wireless adapter. The VEGA-2002 can create multiple output streams from a
single video input and encode each one using different codecs with different
parameters. The encoded streams can be stored locally or on a network drive or
packaged for live transmission.
VEGA-2002 supports the latest reliable streaming protocols such as SRT, NDI and
Zixi in addition to more conventional protocols for ingest to Facebook Live
etc. It is available in several configurations to support different SDI requirements
including a single 12G-SDI + HDMI version, and can be specified both with and
without a customizable metal enclosure for ease of integration. With only 12W
power consumption, low latency hardware-based encoding, and an easy to manage
web UI, the VEGA-2002 is ideal for various portable or field-based streaming
applications such as live reporting, sports video capture and record, and
real-time interactive AR/VR services.
