BRAY, England -- Antrica, a worldwide supplier of H264 video encoding and streaming solutions, today unveiled the ANT-73000 KVM (Keyboard Video and Mouse) Video over IP encoder. The ANT-73000 is a low cost H264 Video encoder that connects to the "Remote" PC via HDMI and USB only.
The "Remote" PC or Laptop is connected to the ANT-73000 via HDMI and the desktop image encoded and streamed using Low Latency H264 .
The "Remote" PC or Laptops Keyboard and mouse are controlled via the USB connection which also supplies power to the ANT-73000 . Antrica supply a free application to run on the "Local" PC or Laptop which sends KVM commands to the ANT-73000 allowing control of the "Remote" Keyboard and mouse. Video can be displayed using VLC player or Antricas low latency player on the "Local" PC/ Laptop. The ANT-73000 KVM encoder uses standard fixed IP addresses and works on any LAN or WAN where the Local PC or Laptop can access this IP address. Data rates of a few Mega Bits/second to 20MB/s are programmable for full 1920 x 1080 at 60Hz streaming. Embedded audio via the HDMI input is supported.
Les Litwin Sales Director of Antrica commented : "The market for KVM encoders is primarily on dedicated high bandwidth networks so having a fast deployment KVM encoder which can work on any existing LAN fills a much needed gap. Our Encoder can be set up and be active in under 5 minutes on any 10/100 ethernet LAN using around 12 MBits/sec of bandwidth on average."
The ANT-73000 KVM encoder is a low power encoder which allows USB powering in certain applications avoiding the need for a power supply. A 5volt mini power converter is supplied in the event USB power is not available. Embedded audio on the HDMI input is also encoded and streamed to the remote player. The unit will be on display during the ISE show in Amsterdam February 2016 stand 2A70.
