Extron Electronics is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the SME 100, a live H.264 encoder for streaming audio, video, and computer-video signals. The SME 100 employs standards-based H.264 / MPEG-4 AVC compression, and outputs an IP stream that can easily be decoded and viewed on desktop or laptop PCs. It is designed specifically to address the input requirements common to pro AV applications, supporting RGB or DVI input signals up to 1920×1200 as well as standard definition and high definition video up to 1080p/60. The SME 100 also features an integrated three-input switcher with audio and buffered loop-through connections to simplify integration. High performance Extron signal processing scales and optimizes video input signals for the intended viewing application. Encoding and compression controls provide a range of adjustments for bit rate and quality.
