Extron introduces H.264 streaming media decoder

Extron Electronics has introduced the SMD 101 decoder which is designed specifically for use in professional AV streaming applications to decode live AV streaming content.

When used with Extron SME 100 encoders, the unit is intended to provide a complete end-to-end AV streaming systems.

The SMD 101 decodes streaming content from SME 100 encoders or can play back AV media files available from network shares. It accepts streaming resolutions up to 1080p/60 and outputs a variety of resolutions, from 640x480 up to 1920x1200. Fill/Follow/Fit aspect ratio management provides choices for managing streaming content that does not match the display.

It is sold as an ideal counterpart to the SME 100 encoder to deploy in simple overflow and monitoring applications or multi-channel streaming systems and high resolution signage systems.
