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 4x HD or 1x UHD/4K 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 bit-rates of up to 120Mb/s. The use of ST2022-7 technology at the decoder ensures 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 non-synchronous HD inputs to be encoded with end-to-end latencies as low as 40ms, this high density and low latency of encoding is ideal for the coverage of live sporting events.
Each video output can support 2 stereo pairs of embedded audio ora single video can support 8x stereo pairs. Onyx can also be equipped with an optional analogue audio interface allowing two stereo analogue audio outputs as well as return ‘talk back’ audio interfaces.
