Advantech Introduces Small Form Factor HEVC Streaming Encoder Module at IBC 2015

Advantech (TWSE: 2395.TW) today introduced HVC-6300, an HEVC capable Full HD video streaming solution in a small lightweight form-factor. HVC-6300 connects directly to a video source via SDI or HDMI, and allows live video to be encoded, stored, and transmitted via 3G/4G/LTE/Wi-Fi to an OB van, a broadcast station or uploaded to a server-based cloud environment. Applications for HVC-6300 include live streaming for sports events and electronic news gathering, tele-medicine, and remote video surveillance.

HVC-6300 supports the High Efficiency Video Codec (HEVC) at up to FullHD 1080p resolutions. HEVC support offers a substantial benefit over existing solutions by reducing the bit rate by approximately 50% when compared to an equivalentquality video stream encoded using AVC / H.264. This reduces the network bandwidth required, or enables either more channels or a higher resolution video delivery over the same infrastructure. It is particularly relevant for mobile video transmission which often has a limited bandwidth.
