AdTec Notes:

Portable Multiplexer Configuration​s:

     For applications requiring a portable form factor, the AFN-250 frame model offers a smaller, more economical solution. These models are feature rich and easy to use. With support from 4K HEVC with on-board IP multiplexers to a single channel of MPEG2 SD and everything in between, these models can be feature-keyed to meet your needs and budget. 

Models:
EN/RD250-2

2 Ch. Encoder & 2 Ch. Decoder w/IP Multiplexer

     Adtec offers named models for our most commonly purchased frame/chassis configurations. This model includes 2 channels of encode for content acquisition AND 2 channels of decode for in-field verification and production content. Feature keys available to enable required codecs and additional audio counts.
