The VS-R265 is a 4K/UHD AV over IP streaming encoder and decoder that simultaneously records, encodes, streams, and decodes 4K video streams (3840×2160) using High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), a high efficiency coding scheme that delivers H.264 video quality at half the bit rate.
The VS-R265 4K live stream encoder addresses the growing demand for an external stand-alone encoder for 4K live streaming environments. The VS-R265 functions as a YouTube encoder and also provides live video streaming to popular Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) including Wowza, Ustream, AWS Elemental MediaLive and CloudFront, to name a few. The half-rack size VS-R265 functions as a stand-alone unit—no external computer is needed for recording or streaming.
Balanced analog Euroblock/Phoenix low voltage wire connectors and unbalanced analog 1/8″ (3.5mm) mini-stereo jacks provide versatile audio I/O connections for a wide range commercial AV over IP environments, including corporate, education, house of worship, government, industrial and security.
Audio can be embedded from analog sources and de-embedded to drive networked audio playback for ceiling speakers, or digital audio within the HDMI I/O can be used. An integrated installed output level configuration function and reference level switching function (up to +20dBu) allows reliable and flexible system structuring when streaming video.
The VS-R265 live streaming encoder is compatible with popular standard streaming protocols, including HLS, RTMP, RTP/RTSP, Multicast, Unicast—all with RESTful API for integration into control systems in commercial AV installations.
