PESA introduces the Blade streaming encoder/decoder

PESA is to introduce its PESA Blade System (PBS) that steams, encodes and decodes video.

The first two cards for the proprietary frame will provide dual-channel H.264 encoding and decoding for streaming video. Housed in a 2 RU chassis, the PBS holds up to 10 cards and is controlled through Cattrax, PESA’s Windows-based system control software, for seamless integration of high density IP-based video into baseband environments.

Both the C22-PBS, which supports RTSP and RTMP streams, and the C22-PBS-T, which supports MPEG transport streams, are based on the PESA Xstream C22 compact streaming appliance. Each C22 card can be configured as a two-port video encoder, two-port decoder, or include one of each.
