Tascam Meets Livestreaming Needs
At ISE 2019 (Booth 14-C120), TASCAM will be showing a brand new range of innovative AV products for system integrators and installers, aimed at education, corporate/industrial users and governmental institutions.
The products announced are the TASCAM VS-R264 & VS-R265: capable of 4K / HD Video Encoding, Streaming, Recording and Decoding (bi-directional) in HEVC/H.265 or H.264. With a compact 1U ½ rack size, they can be rack mounted, screwed under a desk or sat on a desktop.
Features include simultaneous AV encoding, streaming, recording and decoding over corporate networks and WANs, live streaming via the Internet, plus automatic FTP upload of recorded files to network storage. Utilising open streaming formats and protocols, the VS-R series support CDNs and online live platforms like YouTube, Wowza, Ustream, AWS Elemental MediaLive & CloudFront and others.
TASCAM’s VS-R series sports fully balanced audio I/O via Euroblock connectors, with configurable reference levels for compatibility with professional audio systems. Unbalanced 3.5mm stereo mini jacks are also provided for compatibility with consumer devices.
The bi-directional AV operation, live online streaming and secure capture to SD / USB media for later upload to a web site is ideal for live events, lectures, government sessions, boardroom presentations, concert venues and houses of worship, also for connections between rooms or locations.
With power from PoE+ and external 12V DC, HDMI in/out with audio embedding and de-embedding, and full control from a RESTful API allowing for integration into automation/control systems, these units are designed with versatility in mind.
