Introducing 3 all new HD encoders for 2012! These encoders feature the latest advancements in MPEG-2 and H.264 encoding technology, providing high-performance, yet cost effective solutions to system operators.

[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.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
