HD-SDI Input to Dedicated Hardware H.264 Encoding

  • Two HD-SDI (SMPTE 292M) inputs or one 3G-SDI (SMPTE 424M) input
  • H.264 (AVC) output via Ethernet 10/100/1000s
  • STANAG-4609 KLV Metadata Injection over Ethernet or RS-232
  • No operating system or software required
  • Low operating power (less than 10 Watts)



WOLF’s VNX-H264 is a video and audio capture and encode module for aerospace and defense.

Absolutely no software or operating system is required for the MXC-H.264 module to operate. WOLF will preconfigure the module to your desired settings and the module will transmit a compressed H.264 video stream using UDP over Ethernet.

The rugged VNX-H264 module uses the compact VITA 74 specification which defines an extremely small form factor. This form factor is roughly 50 percent of the weight and 30 percent of the volume compared to a typical 3U VPX.
