CineLink 4k IP Encoders & Decoders

Multi-channel 4K encoding & decoding for a scalable AV/IP network

CineLink 4K-E-Loop encoders and CineLink 4K-D decoders are a family of multi-channel 4K IP encoders and decoders that support large volumes of high-quality video streaming and display. CineLinks can be installed anywhere on your network, creating a flexible AV/IP platform allowing any content source to be routed to any video wall processor or display. Supporting up to four channels of 4K or HD video, this scalable solution is ideal for organizations that need to stream large volumes of video – or any team wanting to augment their video wall system with IP video streams.

In situations where it is critically important to ensure redundancy, Haivision MCS also offers two Redundant Power Supply Unit options. The single density unit powers up to four CineLink 4K-EL-4, CineLink 4K-EL-2, or CineLink 4K-D devices. The dual density unit powers up to eight devices at once.

CineLink 4K units are easily configured and managed using the same user-friendly Command 360 video wall software used to manage the rest of your visualization system. With our software users view and display streams from any CineLink unit, anywhere on their network.

Key Benefits

  • Controlled with user-friendly Command 360 software
  • Each unit supports multiple simultaneous video streams
  • Supports 4K and HD video
  • CineLink 4K-E-Loop units feature zero-latency HDMI loop-outs
  • Low-latency, low-bandwidth H.264 streaming

Product Features

Multi-Channel 4K and HD Streaming

CineLink 4K-EL encoders support up to four 4K or HD sources per unit. CineLink 4K-EL-2 encoders support up to two 4K or HD sources per unit. This reduces the amount of hardware needed to support your AV/IP network, ideal for environments streaming large volumes of IP video.

Adds Inputs to Your Alpha FX Processor

Teams that use an Alpha FX video wall processor, also called a controller, use CineLink 4K-E-Loop encoders to add HDMI inputs to the processor. This allows the controller to support additional content sources without requiring an expansion chassis.

High-Quality H.264 Streaming

CineLink 4K encoders and decoders leverage low-bandwidth, low-latency H.264 streaming, so IP video streams look as seamless as local content.

Controlled with User-Friendly Software

CineLink 4K encoders and decoders are controlled through Command 360 video wall software – the same user-friendly platform you use to control the rest of your system. Command 360’s easy configuration tool allows you to match any encoder to any decoder. Users can connect content from any source to any video wall processor or display on that network.

Creates a Scalable AV/IP Network

With CineLink 4K encoders and decoders, you can create a scalable AV/IP network that leverages your existing network infrastructure. Install any combination of encoder and decoder units to connect PCs, controllers, and other devices to your secure network. These content sources can then be shared between multiple rooms, sites, and video walls.

Instantly View and Display IP Streams

Through Command 360, IP streams can be simply dragged and dropped them onto the video wall, just like local input sources.

Only Encoders Needed with an Alpha FX Processor

Teams using an Alpha FX video wall controller can simply add CineLink 4K-E-Loop encoders to connect non-IP content sources to their AV/IP network.

Easily Control Encoder and Decoder Settings

The Command 360 interface includes a user-friendly menu in order to control encoder and decoder settings like bit-rate, color space, and more.
