MultiDyne Announces the NIA9205 Series of Video Encoders and Decoders


MultiDyne Video & Fiber Optic Solutions announced the NIA9205 Series for broadcast and streaming media workflows. The NIA9205 Series is MultiDyne’s next-generation pro line of video encoders and decoders. The products are designed for real-time streaming, broadcast transport and related applications and MultiDyne has adapted Niagara’s video transport codecs and broadcast and networking standards with error correction to take advantage of IP and the internet. HEVC and AVC 4:2:0 10-bit encoding, coupled with SRT, Zixi and RIST video transport and error correction, help maintain professional broadcast quality transport with interoperability over almost any IP network, as well as wireless internet. OTT protocols such as RTMP and HLS bolster the product in other workflows and applications.

The NIA 9205-ENC encoder offers H.264 (AVC or MPEG-4) and H.265 (HEVC) compression. This means customers can start with AVC H.264 and migrate to HEVC H.265 when needed.

The NIA9205-DEC provides HEVC and MPEG4-AVC video decompression up to 2160p50/60 10-bit 4:2:0, along with support for up to eight audio channels, multicasting and multi-unicasting for cost-effective audio/video broadcast solutions. The NIA9205 also provides two Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports — one for media transport and one for control and monitoring.

Studios and remote production teams can also use the NIA9205 to receive and decode content originating from third-party devices, ensuring that studios can accept content from field-based production partners even when other encoders are used.
