[1] The HDE-2H/2S-QAM is designed to receive up to four HDTV programs from any of the following inputs: two unencrypted HDMIs, two HD-SDIs, and four Components. The four input programs are then MPEG-2 encoded into four SPTS (Single-Program Transport Stream) which will be available as output in the following formats simultaneously: QAM (four adjacent channels), IP (GigE/1000BASE-T Ethernet), and ASI. Expected ship-ready date is June 2012.

[2] The HDE-4S-QAM is similar to the above, but with the two HDMI inputs replaced with two HD-SDI inputs. In other words, it receives up to four HDTV programs from any of the following inputs: four HD-SDIs, and four Components. Similarly to the above, the four input programs are then MPEG-2 encoded into four SPTS streams which will be available as output in the following formats simultaneously: QAM (four adjacent channels), IP (GigE/1000BASE-T Ethernet), and ASI. Expected ship-ready date is June 2012.

[3] The HD264-2S-IP is the company's first H.264 encoder. It is designed to receive up to two HDTV programs from any of the following inputs: two unencrypted HDMIs, two HD-SDIs, and two Components. The two input programs are then H.264 encoded into two SPTS streams which will be available as output in the following formats simultaneously: QAM (two independent channels), IP (GigE/1000BASE-T Ethernet), and ASI. Expected ship-ready date is July 2012.
