Optelecom's new Siqura C-60 E-MC is the world's first hardened H.264 video server.

Optelecom-NKF today announces the Siqura C-60 E-MC as their new flagship encoder. The C-60 E-MC is designed to be state-of-the-art and best of breed. It is the world’s first hardened, multi-format quad-streaming video server. 

The Siqura C-60 E-MC is capable of streaming H.264, MPEG-4, MPEG-2, and MJPEG simultaneously. Each stream is optimized for its purpose, e.g. using high quality H.264 or MPEG-2 for live viewing, low bandwidth H.264 or MPEG-4 for storage, and low resolution MJPEG for web applications or mobile devices such as PDAs. Optelecom-NKF implemented H.264 on dedicated hardware providing the best possible video quality, unparalleled in the market today.

The C-60 E-MC is based on an open protocol and standardized video stream implementation and is easily integrated with third-party (VMS) software. 

Peter de Konink, Optelecom-NKF Product Line Manager, Codecs and Analytics, comments, “The C-60 E-MC excels in projects where future-proof technology needs to be combined with reliability, availability, and, above all, quality.”

The C-60 E-MC complements the range of H.264 products and software in the Siqura product line.
