CineLink HD Encoders & Decodeers

Extend Your Visual Collaboration System with HD Encoding & Decoding

CineLink HD-E-Loop and CineLink HD-D are a collection of single-channel HD encoders and decoders that enable high-quality, low-latency content streaming and display. By leveraging your existing network infrastructure and AV equipment the CineLink HD encoders and decoders create a scalable AV/IP platform. This allows virtually any content source to be routed to any video wall controller or display. CineLink HD devices are ideal for control rooms, conference rooms, and other environments that require HD encoding and decoding.

CineLink HD units are easily configured and managed using the same Command 360 video wall software that controls the rest of a Haivision visual collaboration solution. With our user-friendly and flexible software users view and display streams from any CineLink unit, anywhere on the same network.

Key Benefits

  • Controlled with user-friendly Command 360 software
  • Full-HD video encoding and decoding
  • Low-latency, low-bandwidth H.264 streaming
  • Zero-latency HDMI loop-out

Product Features

High-Quality, Low-Bandwidth Streaming

CineLink HD encoders and decoders output a full-HD signal using low-latency H.264 compression. This efficient compression format delivers high-quality video while demanding far less bandwidth than competing formats.

Only Encoders Needed with an Alpha FX Processor

The CineLink HD system integrates with our IP-enabled Alpha FX video wall processors, alos called controllers.  Encoded video from CineLink HD encoders are captured and decoded by your controller without the need for external decoders.

Zero-Latency HDMI Loop-Out

In addition to encoding and streaming HD video, CineLink HD encoders provide a zero-latency HDMI loop-out. The loop-out is used to send unaltered, zero-latency video from a workstation to a desktop monitor, eliminating additional hardware.

Controlled with User-Friendly Software

CineLink HD encoders and decoders are controlled through Command 360 software – the same user-friendly platform you use to control your video wall system. The interface’s easy configuration tool lets users match any encoder to any decoder. This means they can route content from any source to any processor or display on your network.

Creates a Flexible AV/IP Network

With CineLink HD encoders and decoders, you can create a flexible, scalable AV/IP network that leverages your existing network. Install any number of encoders and decoders to connect PCs, controllers, and other devices in any location to your secure network. Content sources are then shared between multiple rooms, sites, controllers, and video walls.

Instantly View and Display IP Streams

Our software’s browser-based dashboard allows IP streams from your CineLink HD encoders to be dragged and dropped onto the video wall, just like local input sources. IP streams can also be opened for private viewing within the browser.

Easily Control Encoder and Decoder Settings

Command 360‘s CineLink settings menu allows administrators to easily adjust encoder and decoder settings like bit-rate, color space, and more.

Easily Control Encoder and Decoder Settings

The included video wall management software provides a user-friendly menu for controlling encoder and decoder settings like bit-rate, color space, and more.

City of Chesapeake PSOC
