Pixelmetrix to launch Pelican range

Pixelmetrix will use IBC to launch the Pelican family of video encoders.

The device, smaller than a 3.5-inch hard drive, is designed to facilitate remote news gathering, enterprise video, hospitality, government, education and healthcare applications. The Pelican comes with a built-in HTML5 web interface to ease set-up and configuration. All models – SD, HD and analogue – support live IP streaming from a built-in Ethernet port.

Pelican-Analog is for composite analogue video and stereo analogue audio inputs, Pelican-SD is for SDI video with embedded stereo audio as well as mini-XLR with balanced audio, while Pelican-HD supports HD-SDI video with embedded stereo audio as well as mini-XLR with balanced audio.

“We are excited about this latest addition to the Pixelmetrix product line,” said Danny Wilson, Pixelmetrix president and CEO. “Our DVStor products have been deployed in more and more systems for alternative playout, time shift and disaster recovery. But to make a complete system, our customers always had to go somewhere else for the encoder. Now, with Pelican, our clients can enjoy one stop shopping for their needs.”
Prices for Pelican start at US$2,950 (€2,345) for Analog, and under US$4,000 for HD.
