SES3200 HD/SD Dense Encoding System

The Telairity SES3200 is a robust, integrated solution for customers seeking to maximize encoding or transcoding density for SD or HD/SD video while minimizing cost. A completely modular 12 RU 14-slot design built around the industry-standard ATCA Chassis, the SES allows for easy scaling, from 8 to 32 channels, and easy upgradeability, from SD to dual auto-switching SD/HD capability. A fabric backplane eliminates the need for external cables, routers, switches, and multiplexers, providing the ability to route any input to any output, and to multiplex all outputs over dual ASI and IP interfaces. Configurable redundancy, automatic fail-over, multiple power supplies, and extensive monitoring and alarm functions make the SES3200 dense encoding system one of the most reliable as well as one of the most flexible encode/transcode solutions.
