Extron Shipping Streaming Media Decoder Card for Quantum Ultra
Extron recently announced the immediate availability of the new Quantum IN SMD 100 multi-channel H.264 decoder card for the Quantum Ultra video-wall processor. It decodes up to four 1080p/60, eight 1080p/30, or 16 SD resolution streams from IP cameras, Extron streaming media encoders, and other H.264 encoders. It is compatible with H.264, MPEG-2, and Motion JPEG streams at bit rates up to 40 Mbps. The Quantum IN SMD 100 features two independent network ports, allowing streams to be distributed across two different subnets, and supports push and pull streaming session management with a variety of transport protocols. It supports the video sections of ONVIF Profile S, making the Quantum IN SMD 100 compatible with a wide variety of streaming devices.
“The award-winning Quantum Ultra videowall processor has been recognised for its industry leading performance and quality,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing for Extron. “The new multi-channel H.264 decoder card extends the capabilities of the Quantum Ultra by providing hardware decoding of streamed video, making it ideal for traffic management and security environments.”
