The CS2IP, a satellite-to-IP converter by ZyCast, has been announced at ISE 2016. The video distribution solutions vendor is showcasing the CS2IP that takes up to eight satellite feeds and converts them to IP streams that can be received on any IP capable device in a facility, including IPTVs, media players, laptops, and tablets. It offers commercial grade media output.
Described by ZyCast as “basically a headend in one RU”, the CS2IP aims to stream AV over IP in, for example, commercial, academic or hospitality environments.
The CS2IP converter features eight independent satellite/transponder inputs, three versions with up to 128 SPTS IP output streams, full parameter settings, professional program mapping with auto-detect satellite feeds and user-selectable (enable/disable) streams.
