SAFARI Montage dual format HLS and MPEG-DASH Encoders provide full, native HTML5-compatible playback to meet the needs of any client - all without the need for the SAFARI Montage® Media Player plugin.

These next generation encoders integrate seamlessly with SAFARI Montage Selective Video Streaming and other modules to support live stream delivery to mobile devices, Chromebooks, and the latest Chrome, Microsoft Edge and Firefox browsers, which no longer support plug-ins and require HTML5.

SAFARI Montage dual format HLS and MPEG-DASH Encoders are available in both single and quad input formats, supporting flexible video input options with HDMI, component and composite inputs - and concurrently output HTML5-native HLS and MPEG-DASH Adaptive Bitrate (ABR) unicast streams in 360, 720 and 1080 output, dynamically serving the optimal stream to each client.

SAFARI Montage dual format HLS and MPEG-DASH Encoders are ideal for streaming school news and support up to 60 clients directly. When paired with multicast encoders, SAFARI Montage® Selective Video Streaming will dynamically select the optimal streaming format through client auto-detection, multicast or unicast (HLS or MPEG-DASH) at three different bitrates.

Key Features:

  • Concurrent HLS and MPEG-DASH Adaptive Bitrate (ABR) output
  • Flexible configuration of ABR resolutions from 288p to 1080p1
  • Accepts HDMI, Component, Composite inputs
  • HDCP Compliant with compatible devices
  • Available in both standalone and quad rack-mount configurations
  • Low power consumption

1ABR output in three selectable resolutions up to a maximum of the input resolution.

Use a SAFARI Montage® SD/HD MPEG Digital Encoder to stream video from any traditional analog or digital source for delivery via IP networks. Virtually any encoder can be used in combination with SAFARI Montage® Selective Video Streaming, although we recommend SAFARI Montage® Digital Encoders for maximum compatibility and optimal performance.

SAFARI Montage® SD/HD MPEG Digital Encoders provide a powerful and ultrareliable, "out of the box" solution for your entire IP Television, digital signage and digital media encoding and distribution requirements.

The units offer flexible video input options with HDMI, component and composite inputs, which support SD through HD resolutions that range from 480i to 1080p.

The units encode incoming digital or analog video to deliver an H.264 or MPEG-2 network stream over the IP network to any user of a SAFARI Montage® system, SAFARI Montage Digital Signage or Classroom Media Controller (CMC).

Remote configuration and control is provided via a password-protected, embedded web server.

With maintenance-free operation, small physical size and low power consumption, SAFARI Montage® Digital Encoders are ideally suited for both large-scale distributed applications and head-end deployments.
