SAN FRANCISCO and PITTSBURGH, Jan. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- CrowdOptic and National Bioskills Laboratories (NBL) today announced the launch of CrowdEncoder™ for enterprise plug-and-play video streaming.
The CrowdEncoder is a standalone device that has the ability to stream live video from any device with video output, without the need for a computer. Once set up, the CrowdEncoder begins to stream with the push of a button, making it simple to use. There are two primary configurations for the CrowdEncoder:
- PTP: a point-to-point stream from one device to one screen across the room
- Cloud: a point to multipoint stream to broadcast across the web
CrowdEncoder PTP Configuration
This CrowdEncoder point-to-point (PTP) configuration is designed for environments not capable of running a physical cable across the room from the broadcasting device to a monitor. For example, an operating room that changes room arrangements frequently does not allow for HDMI cables to be run.
- Supports up to 4K resolution
- < 150ms latency
- 256-bit video encryption
- Supports converting to and from analog video
The CrowdEncoder PTP connects to the video source (i.e. C-arm, camera, etc.) via HDMI or other video connection and streams to the video decoder/receiver, which then connects to the video display. Given the environment, the transmission supports a wide range of frequencies.
CrowdEncoder Cloud Configuration
Simply connect CrowdEncoder to your wireless network and plug in a camera or any video device to stream up to 4K video to your own branded web page, or the video conferencing solution of your choice, including Zoom and WebEx.
