Onyx-IP Encoder

Onyx HEVC is a broadcast-quality H.265 encoder offering exceptional compression ratios on video resolutions up to 4K UHD. The Onyx Encoder is ideal for remote production applications over leased lines or satellite, handling 4 HD or 1 UHD feed with ultra low latency.

Onyx is a feature-rich family of professional broadcast encoders and decoders. Onyx encoders can stream across dual networks using a variety of IP formats including SRT, at bitrates of up to 120Mb/s. The use of ST2022-7 technology at the decoder ensure glitch free recovery from network errors or path fail over. For legacy systems and satellite modem connection the Onyx encoder is equipped with ASI inputs and outputs.

Built-in encryption mechanisms, such a BISS and DES, can be employed to protect valuable content. The unique quad-mode allows four HD inputs to be synchronised and encoded with an end-to-end latency of <40mS in progressive formats. This high density and low latency of encoding is ideal for the coverage of live sporting events. Each video input can support 2 stereo pairs of embedded audio. As well as embedded audio inputs, Onyx is equipped with two stereo analogue audio inputs as well as return ‘talk back’ audio interfaces. SFP cages are provided for ST2110 interfacing. The separate control port offers web browser control and a front panel is supplied for local control and monitoring. A dual-input power supply is provided for use where redundant power systems are available.
