The Z3-MVE-20 is a 1RU, cost-effective dual channel 1080i or 1080p30 H.264 HP video encoder/decoder system suitable for broadcast, video security, satellite uplink, remote monitoring and industrial applications. The GUI interface allows the user to configure both channels as encoders, both as decoders, or one of each. The Z3-MVE-20 features multiple interfaces, such as HD-SDI, HDMI, Component, RGB, Composite, ASI, and Ethernet. Please click on the datasheet link for additional information: Z3-MVE-20
