Extron adds H.264 streaming media player and decoder

Extron Electronics has introduced the SMD 202, the latest addition to the company's H.264 Streaming AV product line. The SMD 202 is a media player and live stream decoder used in H.264 streaming applications.

It can present the signal from a locally connected AV device, decode a live streaming source, or play back media files from internal memory, removable SD card, local USB, or network storage.

The SMD 202 supports a range of container formats and streaming protocols, making it adaptable for use with a variety of encoded media.

The SMD 202 is adaptable to different network conditions and streaming requirements, offering both push and pull streaming configurations. Audio output signals are available as HDMI embedded audio as well as analog stereo audio, making it directly compatible with embedded display speakers or existing audio systems.

An interactive on-screen menu provides setup and source selection using front panel buttons or the optional handheld IR remote control. Designed for pro AV applications, the SMD 202 can be controlled using Ethernet, RS-232, IR, and wired IR interfaces.
