Also at the 2012 NAB Show, VSI will showcase its flagship AVN443 encoder
Visionary Solutions’ AVN443 encoder enables encoding of high-definition and standard-definition video via an HDMI®/DVI-D or SDI input, and is suitable for all applications requiring cost-effective, low bit rate video distribution over IP networks. The base model includes 480i SD encoding with closed-captioning support. Optional modules enable forward error correction and support for image resolutions of 720p, 1080i, or full 1080p60 in an H.264 stream.
The AVN443 also features a modular firmware architecture, which lowers the base price. Users can purchase only those features they need while enjoying the flexibility to upgrade easily in the future as requirements change.
