Our standalone MEDIAEDGE®3 DS encoder provides real-time distribution of live video across a network to any MEDIAEDGE2 and MEDIAEDGE3 DS software or STB clients. Working as a separate solution or in conjunction with a MEDIAEDGE3 DS server, it encodes any analog video source into an MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 output, and can instantly rebroadcast the stream via an internal server built into the unit's circuitry.

You can also use the MEDIAEDGE3 DS encoder to process video from a remote location, such as a video library, and then deliver the content to a MEDIAEDGE3 DS server based within a datacenter. The content is recorded and then ready for distribution across a MEDIAEDGE DS network.

As well, you can combine the MEDIAEDGE3 DS encoder, server, and software clients and/or STBs. Clients can request live streams from the encoder—or live, scheduled, or on demand from the server.
