The Z3-DME-01 is a cost optimized Digital Media Encoder. This solution works in multiple applications, such as low cost broadcast encoders, satellite uplink, HD security video server, industrial applications and remote monitoring. The Z3-DME-01 provides an easy-to-use HTTP-based GUI interface which allows the user remote access to the system for configuration and software updates.

The Z3-DME-01 features multiple interfaces, such as HD-SDI, ASI, Composite Video and Ethernet.

Z3 continues to offer innovative platforms with our technology and the Z3-DME-01 is a true example of this. Using our DaVinci TMS32DM368 video processor has enabled Z3 to create a very compact, power efficient but powerful product. This product is perfect for many use cases, including monitoring and streaming needs.”
