PESA Intros Compact Streaming System
PESA, a manufacturer of audio and video
distribution systems, has introduced its new compact streaming system,
PESA Xstream C22.
The PESA Xstream C22 is a multi-channel, high definition, IP streaming
device. It includes input/output options for standalone streaming applications,
or it can integrate with a broadcast system. It also supports two-port video
encoding or decoding, or one port of each. The C22 is the latest addition to the
company's Xstream line of multi-channel, HD IP streaming devices, which are
suitable for video-on-demand, distributed learning, massive online open courses
(MOOCs) and virtual classrooms, according to the company.
AV staff can use multiple C22 units "to compress, stream and share
high-quality content between locations and enable streaming in existing video
distribution," according to the company. They can also use two C22 units for
bi-directional content sharing, such as live interaction between sites, with one
encoder to send video and another to receive. The unit's built-in Web server
supports full remote operation, so personnel do not need to be on site to stream
Key features of the PESA Xstream C22 include:
- HDMI, coaxial and Ethernet video inputs;
- Optional SFP (small form-factor pluggable) modules, including fiber,
HD-BNC, A-to-D, D-to-A and others;
- Two external audio inputs that can be synchronized to single or dual
- Built-in genlock for locking video signals to an external source;
- HDMI out port; and
- Integrated Web server.
The PESA Xstream C22 will be available this summer.
