Visionary Solutions Introduces New Line of H.264 HD Encoders

HAWTHORNE, N.Y. — February 26, 2016 — BTX Technologies, a value-added distributor and manufacturer of integration essentials, signal processing products and emerging technologies, and Visionary Solutions, a leading manufacturer of network AV solutions, have announced today the introduction of the M400 Series of H264 encoders.

Visionary Solutions’ M400 H.264 encoders transform live video sources into full-screen, full resolution IP video streams that are transmitted over IP networks. HD or SD formats are supported and can be delivered via multicast, unicast or HTTP.

“When the deployment of many channels are specified into a project, the M400 Series provides a cost conscious way to deliver IP video,” explains Greg Schwartz, President and CEO of BTX Technologies. “This is an especially attractive solution for House of Worship, K-12, and other markets where high-quality and budget-savvy products are a requirement.”

The M400 Series boasts a host of benefits including a small form factor for easy deployment and flexible H.264 encoding up to 1080p with dual bitrate output for different displays and different applications. There is an onboard scaler for input video and the sources include HDMI and CVBS, SDI or VGA and Component.  The management and configuration of all the M400 Series of encoders can be done via a web interface or web API, affording a simple and consistent method of controlling the units.

The M400 series allows customers to encode a high quality MPEG-TS stream for the local network, while at the same time sending a low bitrate stream to a CDN for redistribution. All backed by Visionary’s outstanding support and knowledge of IPTV applications.

The M400 Series of Encoders are shipping today and will be featured at the BTX booth #C9806 at NAB in Las Vegas from April 18th – 21st.
