Kramer KDS−DEC3 is an H.264 decoder for encoded signals up to 1080p60. It is designed to work with the KDS−EN3 H.264 encoder to provide a high−quality and fully−featured end−to−end video and audio over IP solution. This item was designed to be used in conjunction with the KDS-EN3 encoder and using Kramer's KDS-EN3 Manger software you have the ability to manage your entire KDS-EN3 network from a single system. These devices are great for use in Pro AV distribution systems with one or more sources and many displays, such as in schools, universities and public venues. Equally they are an added benefit to settings that require long-distance transmissions of signals using the existing wires and infrastructure in corporate offices and government type applications. 

The primary features of the KDS-EN3 & KDS-DEC3 when used together include:

  • MPEG-4 AVC support using H.264 and AAC codes
  • Downscale streams locally before distribution over the network to lower bandwidth consumption
  • Scaling and cropping features that enable flexible display of source content to the decoder output
  • Open encoding to enable software decoding through VLC software
  • Standard 10/100/1000Mb Ethernet network operation
  • A decoder integrated network switch that allows for KDS-DEC3 daisy chainging and network extension
  • HDMI/DVI video support and HDMI or analog audio support
  • Unicast or multicast streaming support through RSTP (Real Time Streaming Protocol)
  • Manual and scheduled recording to network storage option on encoders
  • A fall safe video playback or image display when a decoder losses its connection to an encoder
  • RS-232 virtualization from encoder to decoder

The KDS-DEC3 from Kramer is an advanced solution in applications where functions such as recording, archiving, scaling and more are required. This device comes with its own power supply, power cord, and a plastic bracket set for mounting. Has a 7 year warranty from Kramer.
