Multi-Channel H.264 Encoder for Live Streaming
H.264 live streaming encoder with more video, audio and signal format management than any other product on the market.
PESA’s XSTREAM C58 High Definition Multiport IP Streaming System is a versatile platform for high definition video processing, audio processing and multi-port IP streaming. It provides six independent video and audio processing channels, one of which is dedicated to producing a quadview video output composed of any four user-selected source signals from the other five processing channels.
Each processing channel offers video and audio input interface through rear panel connectors in various signal formats at resolutions up to 1080p/60. H.264 video and AAC audio encoder functions associated with each channel broadcast an IP output stream of the selected A/V sources, and a decoder function extracts video and audio from an incoming IP stream that can be chosen as input sources for the encoder. The C58 allows up to six simultaneous IP output streams.
An independent audio mixer function provided for each processing channel allows the primary audio paired with the input video source to be blended or replaced with a user-selected source of local auxiliary audio.

High Density Package
Each PESA XSTREAM is packaged in a 1RU frame with internal power.
Size, Weight, and Power
Compact size allows maximum connections in the smallest amount of space while weighing less than 4lbs and consuming less than 150 watts.
Remote Management and Control
Integrated Web Server allowing for full remote capability. No personnel required on site for streaming content to a production facility.
Up to Eight Audio Inputs
Via an eight port XLR break-out cable, include up to 8 audio sources per channel.
Audio Line Outputs
Connect up to two line level audio outputs on the rear panel with XLR and one front panel output with headphone jack.
Gig-E Network Connection
Concurrently stream up to six H.264 streams to networked devices, setup control and configuration with PESA’s web-based GUI interface and set the variable rate of transport to accommodate any type of network traffic. Select any IP camera connected to the network and combine with local video sources prior to streaming.
HDMI Display or Multiviewer Output
HDMI output allows up to four video inputs to be displayed in a quadview display.
HDMI output for full screen display of any one of the live video feeds or from connected IP cameras.
Optional HDMI to SDI BNC: Breakout module for HDMI to BNC for HD-SDI previews (with embedded audio).
Up to Five Video Sources
Connect five video sources supporting either NTSC/PAL or SDI in 720p, 1080i, and 1080p resolutions.
USB 2.0 Connection
Transport stream of all six video channels with audio for PC/MAC/Storage applications.
