Thor's H-MPEG2-H264-E is a multiformat multi-input hardware encoder for the broadcast industry. Build from the ground up for broadcasting applications, this platform adds many new features to the Thor encoder line. This system supports both EIA 608 and 708 closed captioning, providing compliance with FCC regulations. DVB-ASI input and output is provided and internal ASI program multiplexing allows the encoded content to be added into any standard multi program ASI transport stream. Furthermore, externally encoded content from the ASI input can also be multiplexed with the IP network video output. This allows creation of MPTS program streams to feed media servers. Another new feature included on this platform is a second Gigabit Ethernet TSoIP output for expanded functionality in IPTV systems. The second TS output is provided via a standard RJ-45 port for a total of 3 network interfaces. The third network port provides access to the Thor web server management system. Isolating management on a different network interface allows for more reliability in IPTV systems and simplifies the use of multicast protocols. Audio input can be provided as either digital AES or analog audio provided with the included DB9 breakout cables. Audio can also be input via embedded SDI or HDMI audio. Audio encoded is also offered in two formats, both AAC and MPEG1 can be selected for both MPEG-2 and H.264 video
