LEIGHTRONIX’s PEGvault-SD digital video encoder streamlines workflows
LEIGHTRONIX has introduced the PEGvault-SD, a new digital video/audio encoder that offers remote-controlled, push-button operation and automatic transfers of recorded media files to a user-selected broadcast video server or Web media hosting destination.
The PEGvault-SD is configured for push-button recording through its included Web interface and features simplified record-stop operation using the supplied wireless remote control.
The hardware-based, integrated video/audio encoder produces broadcast-quality digital media files for use in a wide range of broadcast and cable applications. For those seeking a Web presence, the PEGvault-SD can be easily set up to produce media files optimized for streaming video-on-demand applications.
The MPEG-2 digital media files produced by the PEGvault-SD are widely accepted in the broadcast industry and will play on popular video servers. PEGvault-SD digital media files also meet video server compatibility specifications designated by the Alliance for Community Media Server Standards Work Group.
In remote settings, the PEGvault-SD outperforms limited-capacity DVD recorders that are often used for capturing meetings and events. The PEGvault-SD keeps on recording at high MPEG-2 video bit rates until the job is done, eliminating worries about extended length meetings and events. The PEGvault-SD’s record, store and forward capabilities streamline workflows, replacing the multistep process of DVD recording, transport, ingest and transfer.
