Rugged video appliances combine real-time 4K video streaming, recording, extension, and data storage, and meet military and industrial standards.

HIAWATHA, Iowa – Crystal Group, Inc. in Hiawatha, Iowa, is working together with Matrox Graphics Inc. in Dorval, Quebec, to introduce the RVA6152 video encoder and RVA3408 IP KVM extender for demanding and extreme operating environments.

The ruggedized video appliances combine real-time 4K video streaming, recording, extension, and data storage according to strict military and industrial standards.

In collaboration with Matrox, Crystal Group is the provider of the ruggedized multi-4K video encoder and 4K IP KVM extender. Both products use Crystal Group’s proprietary ruggedization techniques for the ultra-high-definition video capabilities and quality of Matrox’s Maevex 6100-series quad 4K encoder and Extio N3408 4K/quad-HD IP KVM extender.

Equipped with compressed H.264 technology, the rugged RVA6152 video encoder delivers quality low-bit-rate streaming and recording. The quad 4K input capture and encode enables secure, real-time streaming and recording of four or more 4K channels simultaneously over standard one Gigabit Ethernet networks.

The plug-and-play design integrates into existing infrastructures for high-density content distribution and system scalability.

The RVA3408 IP KVM extender provides 4Kp60 4:4:4 ultra-high-definition performance or quad-monitor capabilities over standard Gigabit Ethernet at low bit rates.

This transmitter-receiver duo can be configured as a point-to-point or networked extender to deliver multiple video, keyboard, mouse, USB 2.0 and audio signals, as well as provide aggregated and seamless control of multiple systems from a remote 4K/multi-display station with a keyboard and mouse.
