Antrica: 1080p60 video encoder announced11 February 2015
The company’s first 1080p60 video encoder with the ability to remotely control the source keyboard and mouse via USB is being launched and showcased by Antrica at ISE 2015. A typical application, says the company, would be to connect a PC to the ANT-5000 via DVI/HDMI and USB, allowing the PC desktop to be streamed in real time to a remote location where the keyboard and mouse can also be controlled.
The ANT-5000 uses H.264 compression to replicate a fast-moving Full HD PC desktop at typically 10Mbps, and may be used on any LAN or WAN. It supports embedded HDMI video plus audio or DVI video. Power is supplied via USB or an external 5V power supply at under 3W. Target environments, says Antrica, include remote desktop, medical, digital signage, control rooms, sports and security.
Measuring only 11cm x 4.7cm x 10cm, the ANT-5000 is described as a small and low-cost solution to streaming any HDMI or DVI source to a remote location while having full keyboard and mouse control.
Antrica is also showing a new universal streaming encoder and decoder which complies with ONVIF, allowing easy integration into other ONVIF-based systems. Supporting up to 1920 x 1200 resolution at 60 frames per second and numerous other formats, the ANT-45000 also supports embedded audio via HDMI or 3G HD-SDI. Dual LAN connections are provided as a basic 2-input hub allowing laptop connections locally while the encoder is streaming or decoding. RS485/232 serial connections are provided for remote control purposes plus a variety of alarm outputs and sensor inputs.
