Media Excel’s SoftStream H.264 real-time transcoder
Media Excel has introduced the SoftStream HERA 3000, a real-time H.264 system for telecommunications, digital signage and VoIP applications.
The transcoder allows users to select between live video sources, digital broadcasts, video files, or MPEG files to generate H.264 streams in real-time that can be broadcast and saved to disk. The system can be configured as an H.264 encoder, transcoder, and streaming system.
The device uses six Texas Instruments' TMS320DM642 digital signal processors and interoperates with Media Excel's streaming media server and IP set-top boxes.
