Adaptive Bitrate Video Encoder and VMS Interface Server

The MX-400IO is based upon the MX-400 and specifically configured to deliver live AV content to the MX-400SR Datacasting Server for distribution to a secure audiance. Content is sourced from a number of well know video management systems (VMS) or captured from an HDMI, HD-SDI, or IP (RTSP security cameras). All content is encrypted and dynamically encoded to meet the VBR bandwidth requirements of the MX-400SR. Camera selection is controlled by the VMS software so that no additional user training is required. Encoding parameters, source selection, and other MX-400IO features are configured via the WebUI or under customer control through a REST management API. The MX-400IO supports the MX-400SR content encryption and targetting.
