4K60 4:4:4 Dual Stream Transceiver
June 8, 2021 — Kramer Electronics’ KDS-10 is an advanced, dual stream transceiver for streaming 4K@60Hz (4:4:4) video signals via Ethernet over copper cable.
The KDS-10 can be set as either an encoder or decoder. As an encoder, it encodes and streams one or two HDMI inputs over an IP network. As a decoder, it receives the encoded signal, decodes it, and outputs it to an HDMI output.
The KDS-10 has flexible analog audio embedding and de–embedding. When in encoding mode, you can select the balanced analog audio input to embed into the streaming HDMI output signal. When in decoding mode, you can extract the HDMI audio signal and output it as balanced analog audio.
In addition, the KDS-10 also has flexible input and output options. The transceiver includes two HDMI inputs that can be streamed alternately or simultaneously as either H.264 or H.265 and packaged as either unicast (one to one) or multicast (one to many). These two industry standard encoding methods offer compatibility with other software and hardware decoding platforms from various manufacturers. Given the robust compression, the file size of the incoming signal is significantly reduced making it more manageable to stream, store, or transverse over a 1G network.
The KDS-10 is available now in the United States at $2,995.00 MSRP.
