Digigram, developer of audio and video solutions, announced that during the 2016 NAB Show it will showcase two new HEVC/H.265-enabled versions of its popular AQORD video encoder designed to enable point-to-point broadcast contribution of UHD 4K video or simultaneous HD channels, as well as broadcast and IPTV distribution of 4K content to the home. Housed in a compact 1-RU, 19-inch chassis, the AQORD HEVC-4K Ultra HD encoder and AQORD HEVC-xHD multi-HD encoder leverage HEVC/H.265 to enable cost-effective contribution of the high-resolution (up to 4Kp60, 4.2.2, 10-bit, 120 Mbps) video increasingly used for premium-quality live event production.

Ready to use right out of the box with minimal configuration, these latest additions to Digigram’s AQORD family allow users to stream superior-quality video — UHD or multiple HD feeds — almost immediately. With HEVC/H.265 encoding or local recording capabilities, AQORD HEVC offers mission critical 24/7 reliability, supported by dual streaming capabilities, forward error correction (FEC), and a redundant power supply. Each unit’s compact form factor saves space and reduces power consumption in demanding outside broadcasting environments.

The new Digigram products ingest raw video through quadruple 3G-SDI video inputs and use HEVC to realize double the compression efficiency enabled by AVC/H.264. The AQORD HEVC-4K is UHD-ready while the AQORD HEVC-xHD can encode one HD channel and upgrade up to four HD channels or one UHD channel via software license.
