AVN420 Overview:

Visionary Solutions’ AVN420 H.264 Encoder transforms live video sources into full-screen, full resolution, Internet Protocol Digital Video, compatible with multicast, webcast and video-on-demand protocols. This high quality H.264 video encoder is suitable for all applications requiring cost-effective, low bit rate, SD video distribution over IP networks.

The AVN420 is a key component of Visionary Solutions’ modular, end-to-end PackeTV® IPTV ecosystem, which is the ideal solution for any organization looking to deliver and manage real-time and recorded video over virtually any network.


Superior Audio/Video Quality

H.264 (MPEG-4 Part 10/AVC) hardware compression and Visionary Solutions’ optimized transmission technology provide a high or standard definition, full frame rate, IP video stream. The stream can be viewed by an unlimited number of clients on a LAN or WAN provided that bandwidth is available. Image resolutions are configurable based upon purchased modules. The base model includes 480i SD encoding. Optional modules allow FEC support and image resolutions to be configured up to 720p, 1080i (with 1080p @24 support) or full 1080p at 60 frames per second. The total bit rate can be configured from 2 to 10 Mbps for SD. The audio compression is either AAC (128 to 512 kbps audio encoding, average bitrate) or MPEG-1 Layer 2 (64 to 384 kbps audio encoding) with up to 48 kHz sample rate.

Video Inputs

The AVN420 video inputs include one BNC composite, and one S-Video input for connecting cameras or other video equipment.

Audio Inputs

The AVN420 features user control of analog audio input, including mute. A terminal block connector provides audio inputs for Balanced and Unbalanced connections. This allows for easy onsite connections regardless of the cabling outputs of the audio source. This allows for easy onsite connections regardless of the cabling outputs of the audio source.

External Device Connections

The AVN420 includes a serial connection via an RJ-45 connector. This connector can be used as an RS-232 port (full duplex, no hand shaking) or an RS-422 (full-duplex) port. These ports allow the AVN420 to interface with external devices such as terminal emulation equipment.

Management & Configuration

The AVN420 is easy to access and configure through the Browser Interface, and an optional AVN Control Protocol (API) is available for qualified customers. TCP/IP, HTTP, and other Internet-related protocols are supported. The Console Interface can be used for network configuration only (IP Address, Netmask, Gateway, and DNS), and not general device control.

IPTV Media Processing Platform (MPP) Component

The AVN420 is a component of the MPP from Visionary Solutions. The MPP is a high density rack mountable blade system. The MPP1700 platform holds up to 17 single slot encoder blades, or a combination of dual and single slot blades. The MPP200 has a single power source and can hold two single slot encoder blades or one dual slot blade.
