Transcoder Gateway

Share this on social media:

Pleora Technologies is now shipping its Transcoder Gateway following extensive field trials in transportation, defence and security, and industrial automation applications. 

The Transcoder Gateway simultaneously receives video from up to four GigE Vision or USB3 Vision cameras for compression, retransmission, display, and archiving. While preserving the high-quality video required for processing and analysis, the image feed is converted into the H.264 compression format and transmitted over a wired or wireless connection using the real-time streaming protocol (RTSP) to a playback device. The image feed can also be saved as IEEE 1588 time-stamped video to USB-attached storage media, and output with administrator specific overlays via an HDMI connection to high-definition displays.

In transportation applications, such as multi-camera container cranes used for port management, GigE Vision video is multicast to a computing platform used for automated cargo scanning. The Transcoder Gateway plug-in appliance automatically converts image feeds into a compressed video stream that is transmitted to an operations centre for live surveillance and archiving. Similarly, the Transcoder Gateway can compress and transmit high-resolution video used for image-guided surgery so it can be viewed remotely on tablets or portable devices by consulting physicians and nursing staff.

The Transcoder Gateway is available in solo and quad models supporting one or four video streams, wireless connectivity options, and different footprint requirements.
