The 8-HD Encoder is applied for professional digital TV broadcasting: can be used both as independent device for IP TV and as a part of head-end station. 8-HD Encoder encodes HD audio & video channels and can multiplex them with 1 ASI stream (TS) for further transmitting. 8-HD Encoder has 8 HDMI inputs and both IP and ASI outputs. 8 HDMI inputs support MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 High Profile & Main Profile/H.265. Multiplexing the ASI TS and 8 encoded SPTS 8-HD Encoder generates MPTS IP/ASI streams with the inserted PSI/SI information.
