The X500E enables IP live streaming of broadcast-quality UHD video and is available globally in late July.
The X500E was developed with Israeli company XVTEC, and uses Socionext’s SC2M50 codec IC. The unit simplifies the development of various video content distribution environments. X500E generates IP streams of broadcast-quality UHD video with HEVC/H.265 encoding, using only 20W with the process under standard usage conditions. It features low latency, as little as less than 50ms, making it ideal for use in various video distribution applications including electronic news gathering and live streaming of sporting and other events.
