Product Breakdown: Our VL4500 Series MPEG2 and AVC Encoder

If you’re in the market for a video encoder, there’s no hiding that you have options. Every company claims that they’re the best for reason x, y or z, but the fact about us is simple. Our MPeg2 and AVC encoder comes to you built by a company with over 30 years of experience manufacturing data, audio and video transport equipment. We haven’t stayed in business for that long by not being the best at what we do, so with that said, here’s a breakdown of the video encoder that we’re proud to say we make:


–    Dual stream encoding, HD and SD down conversion.

–    Stunning HD quality at low bitrates with multi-pass encoding.

–    Subtitles delivery on all streams.

–    ASI, IP and QAM outputs.

–    File input via USB or SATA.

–    Low power consumption and heat dissipation.

–    24-hour support.

–    Many more features.

As well as these features, the VL4500 video encoder will distribute a 1080p stream using less than 24W of power. Furthermore, it dissipates low amounts of heat by combining with our special thermal design. On top of that, it is lightweight and compact, and can be transported to locations that would otherwise be extremely difficult to take broadcast encoding equipment to—ideal if you’re setting up in a remote area.
