4K HEVC Encoder


The Lau-K is the new HEVC encoder/decoder developed by SVP Broadcast Microwave. Offering exceptional compression ratios on video resolution up to 4K UHD for contribution.

HEVC offers many advantages over AVC like bigger compression rates which results in significant bitrate savings over tradicional AVC solutions. The additional efficiency of HEVC encoder makes wireless transmission of 4K possible.

This codec supports low latency making it ideal for live applications such as wireless cameras, ENG, SNG and Aircraft Data-Links.

Latency is critical in many broadcast applications and LAU-K encoder has been designed to minimize latency without compromising quality, making this encoder suitable for all live events.

The Lau-K compresses a single 4K UHD input or up to 4 HD of 1080p/60 inputs in one unit. Each input can support 2 stereo pairs of embedded audio.

It can be controlled and powered from HDT-02 transmitter.
