The Z3-MVE-02 Multi-Format Video Encoder is a compact system that supports H.264 HP encoded up to 1080i or 1080p30. This system works well in multiple applications such as low cost broadcast encoders, low bandwidth video security, satellite uplink, remote monitoring and industrial applications. The Z3-MVE-02 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-MVE-02 features HD performance, compact size and low latency while consuming less power than a PC-based encoder platform.
