BE8200 2-Channel HD H.264 or AVS Encoder

The Telairity BE8200 is a scalable, fully programmable broadcast quality encoder for high definition video formats. It combines Telairity's uniquely powerful hardware and software technology with leading-edge video compression (either H.264/AVC or AVS) to achieve industry-leading video quality at very low bit rates, below 6Mbps HD formats. The multichannel BE8200 encoding platform addresses the need of today's broadcasters to improve system density while lowering per-channel costs wherever more than one HD channel is required. Featuring Telairity's unique "instant on" technology, the BE8200 can be readily upgraded via a software download to add new features or enhance performance.
