R.L. Drake PEGs New Products

R.L. Drake (Booth # 1710) has introduced the PEG-NE24-IP, a stand-alone single HD-SDI input MPEG-2 and H.264 digital encoder, designed to optimize multipoint distribution for public education, government, and sports applications.

For applications requiring an analog composite video input due to source equipment capability, Drake has also introduced the PEG-NE24-IP-C encoder, which includes composite video and audio inputs. Using the PEG-NE24-IP or PEG-NE24-IP-C, operators can efficiently transport video and audio signals from a local origination site back to the headend or hub location so that they can be rebroadcast to cable subscribers, significantly lowering operational expenses while still meeting franchise obligations, the company said. 

The PEG-NE24-IP and PEG-NE24-IP-C can produce HD and a secondary SD program from one single HD source and output them via an SFP interface that includes copper and fiber output options, depending on the SFP module chosen by the user. A second RJ45 10/100 Ethernet port is provided for control and monitoring, which can also be configured to stream video.
