Ultra Low Latency Standalone Dual HD-SDI Video Streamer

The XStream-HD is an intelligent, stand-alone, ultra low latency H.264/H.265 Streaming solution that accepts dual HD-SDI input and records and streams them over Ethernet. This SWaP optimized solution is ideal for rapid deployment in demanding applications in Military, Communications, Transportation, Mining and Energy industries.

The XStream-HD features a dedicated hardware compression engine capable of encoding both channels at full size and full frame-rate with Ultra Low Latency (under 40ms). The flexible streaming engine can stream each channel direct from the on-board Ethernet port. The XStream-HD also supports embedded audio and extraction of STANAG4609 KLV meta-data embedded in the HD-SDI input signal. This makes the XStream-HD a powerful, flexible platform ideal for rugged systems requiring optimum SWaP in a compact package.
