At InfoComm 2019, Videon will showcase its award-winning EdgeCaster Edge Compute Encoder that is ideal for applications and integration with solutions requiring low latency streaming. With EdgeCaster products, users can stream among buildings, between campuses or around the world using a single device.
Videon’s EdgeCaster ultra-low latency, Edge Compute Encoder can simultaneously support point-to-point, low-latency streaming with SRT while also supporting worldwide low-latency streaming using an HLS/DASH/CMAF workflow.
Designed for projects in the prosumer, pro-AV, and broadcast markets, EdgeCaster supports SRT technology, which allows users to stream from building to building or across campus simultaneously with the low latency of fewer than half a second. The EdgeCaster also uses edge compute encoding technology that bypasses a layer of cloud-based processing, resulting in worldwide latency of fewer than three seconds — from camera capture to playback — via public internet connection.
EdgeCaster leverages the capability of Qualcomm technology to handle transcoding, format repackaging, and other heavy computational processes. With the processing power of the SnapDragon chip, EdgeCaster streams at resolutions up to 4K at 30 fps using either H.264 or H.265/HEVC compression. EdgeCaster can also output up to six streams simultaneously in multiple bit rates/resolutions using chunked HLS or DASH and has the flexibility to be powered via power over ethernet (PoE).
