Antrica is an industry leading manufacturer and supplier of hardware video encoders & decoders who have been a well known name in this industry for 15 years. Antrica are specialists in this niche video over IP industry and supply to a range of markets worldwide. Their products are set apart from the competition in terms of reliability, performance, integration and compatibility.
Video streams are referred to in two ways.
How many streams can the encoder support:
This means how many decoders can connect to the encoder and pull independent streams. Generally, this will be the same stream reproduced multiple times to support multiple people viewing this stream. Each encoder has different capabilities in this area. Fo example, in a 1080P30 stream at 10 MBits , the encoder may only support 4-5 streams, but, if the stream was lower resolution and bit rate, more streams can be supported. This is a function of network bit rate and internal processor capability.
How many different streams can be set up in the encoder:
Typically this is 1-4 streams . So an encoder supporting 4 different streams means each stream can be given a different resolution frame rate bit rate, among other things .
