Video encoding and streaming for rugged environments

Tyton VS2 is a H.265 (HEVC) / H.264 (AVC) video encoding and streaming solution from Eizo Rugged Solutions, which is aimed at video-transmission needs in harsh field environments. Tyton VS2 can bypass video outputs and offers low latency encoding and low power consumption. It is able to capture two 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, or SD-SDI video inputs simultaneously and encode them using video encoding standard H.264 (MPEG-4 AVC) as well as the H.265 (HEVC) standard. All streams are then sent out from the 1 gigabit-per-second Ethernet output.

Tyton VS2 is ruggedized for harsh environments (shock, vibration, humidity) and temperatures from -45 °C to 85 °C (meeting MIL-STD-810G & IP67) and also comes with dedicated mounting holes for mounting onto racks. Its rugged small-form-factor design meets the SWaP [size, weight, and power] requirements for vertical markets. Three encoders can fit in a 19-inch 2U rack with accessible front-facing connectors. In the default configuration, the product accepts two high-definition video inputs through BNC connectors. Audio, 1 gigabit-per-second Ethernet, and RS-232 are routed over a 22-pin rugged circular mil-spec connector. The product can be modified to meet various user requirements, such as different video-input formats.
