News happens fast. It’s less a stream of information than a torrent of data, and mobile news broadcasters and content creators sometimes struggle to keep up. Path 1’s PiXiE is a 1RU rack-mounted video encoder and decoder system purpose-built for use in any news van or broadcast studio.
The PiXiE encoder detects the operator’s chosen video input then simultaneously encodes up to five versions of the video signal at different bitrates. Unlike traditional solutions, Path 1’s system makes these video representations immediately available on the encoder’s standard internal web server, which allows it seamlessly integrate as an Internet service.
