Encoders & Decoders

The T-RAX base rack system allows installing of encoder and decoder cards. Each T-RAX encoder card can encode video from the 3G-SDI input into H.264 video with support for RTMP, MPEG-TS, TDS, and RTSP/RTP protocols. It also provides a 3G-SDI loop out.

Its decoder cards output via both 3G-SDI connectors and can decode incoming streams from any T-RAX encoder card, Cube or Slice encoder.*

*Decoder cards only support TDS, RTSP and MPEG-TS
