KDS−8 is a high−performance, zero latency, 4K@60Hz (4:4:4) video streaming transceiver for streaming via Ethernet over copper cable. KDS−8 can be set as either an encoder or decoder. As an encoder, it encodes and streams the HDMI input along with IR, RS−232, and analog audio, over an IP network. As a decoder, it receives the encoded signal and decodes it for output.
High–Performance Video Streaming Transceiver — Streams up to 4K@60Hz (4:4:4) resolution signals over a 10G network interface, providing lossless compression.
Maximum Compatibility — Fully standard and compliant SDVoE™ codec, enables compatibility with other software and hardware streaming platforms.
Streamlined Management and Configuration — Kramer KDS–8–MNGR device (sold separately) provides a central point of management and enables creating multiple virtual matrices, video walls and multi–view configurations. In addition, KDS–8–MNGR supports preset configurations that can be activated using Kramer Control.
HDCP 2.2 Compliant, HDR Support, Genlock and Fastswitch Modes Support
High–Speed 10G Network Switch — Managed switch provides: multicast, jumbo frames, IGMP snooping and fast leave.
Analog Audio Embedding — Provides an unbalanced analog audio port for embedding audio into the streaming signal.
Bi–directional IR over IP — Control an IR device located on the decoder side from the encoder and vice versa.
Bi–directional RS–232 over IP — Control a serial device located on the decoder side from the encoder and vice versa.
Video Wall Support.
Easy, Cost–Effective Maintenance — LED indicators for main power, Tx/Rx mode setting, HDMI video source detection, and Tx and Rx transmission enable easy local maintenance and troubleshooting.
Simple System Management — Remote system management support to enable quick and efficient remote system and device life–cycle management.
