Video Over IP Encoder Service

Loan Program

ITS has two Haivision Barracuda units available for loan to faculty or departments needing to broadcast video over the IP network.

The Haivision Barracuda encoder delivers high performance H.264 encoding in a uniquely compact form factor. The Barracuda accepts Composite, S-Video, and Serial Digital Interface (SDI) standard definition inputs. It also supports both balanced and unbalanced stereo audio as well as digital audio embedded within the SDI signal. The Barracuda can produce H.264 streams at full resolution and full frame rate at up to 8 Mbps, and yet with built-in downscaling and partial frame rate support can emit streams as low as 150 kbps.

Visit our QuickStart Guide for more help with using the Haivision Barracuda encoder.
