Model 4480 HD/SD Video Codec
4480 - 4 across lighter
The Model 4480 HD/SD Video CODEC is a network appliance designed to compress High Definition (HD) and Standard Definition (SD) video (HD/SD-SDI, HDMI, RGBHV, RGsB, NTSC, PAL) for transmission over IP networks. The unit can also be configured as a decoder to convert back to composite, SDI, or DVI for display in ground stations, operations centers, or classrooms.

Utilizing industry-standard H.264 compression, along with flexible adjustments for video resolutions, compression parameters, and network settings, the 4480 can be configured to deliver high-quality video over any network. The unit is easily configured via the Ethernet or serial port. Audio and user-data channel multiplexing provide for single-stream transmission. The 4480 is compliant with most off-the-shelf video players.

This compact, rugged unit is capable of operation in harsh environments. Extended temperature operation makes it ideal for military, law enforcement, distance learning, and traffic monitoring applications. An optional 1RU, multi-unit (up to 4) rack-mount adaptor is available to ease integration.
