Extron Electronics has announced an upgrade to its SME 100 encoder, enabling the support of additional network and streaming protocols.
The SME 100 now supports push streaming in unicast or multicast applications applying native RTP or MPEG-2 Transport Streams. Session Announcement Protocol and Session Description Protocol are applied to manage push streaming sessions. These new network and streaming protocols make the SME 100 compatible with more third party decoding devices and streaming configurations.
"Streaming encoders are used in many different applications and network configurations. This latest firmware update supports integration into a broader variety of streaming applications, and provides compatibility with a greater variety of H.264 devices including set-top box decoders," says Casey Hall, VP of sales and marketing for Extron. "We have expanded our support of encoding, network protocols, and control features in the SME 100 to give AV professionals a broader set of tools for AV streaming applications."
