IMX e4090 SD/HD Video Encoder Deployment Diagram


The following is an example of how the IMX e4090 IPTV HD video encoders are deployed in a live service provider environment. IMX e4090 video encoders are taking live satellite feeds and encodes the video into HD 1080p, HD 1080i, HD 720p or SD/EDTV format. Once videos are encoded, streams are sent to IMX X1i MatrixCast Streaming server for live streaming across the Internet. All the interactions between all the different servers are being managed by IMX M2200 middleware server.MatrixCast IMX e4090 Video Encoder
