XENTAURIX Modules & Tools
Multiscreen | Multiviewer
With the X-Multiscreen module you can extend the XENTAURIX system to multiviewer display. Live TV, radio and video streams are displayed on one or more LED monitors. The mosaic size and positioning of the channels and the multiviewer layout are individually configurable for each monitor. The multiscreen layouts are saved as favorites, which can be used to recall up different display variants. Each monitor requires a Mini PC with Vesa mount, which is included. Up to 26 HD channels can be displayed per LED monitor with up to 8 audio bars per channel, channel name, time / date (local + GMT). Video / audio signal losses are signalled visually as well as acoustically. The number of monitors that can be combined to form a video wall is virtually.

TS & Proxy Monitoring and Recording
The X-TS module proceeds full resolution MPEG TS and low resolution proxy recordings including accompanying metadata. TS and proxy content will be recorded in XENTAURIX subunits or external storage devices. Operators can monitor live and playback, search and edit video clips with the proxy functionality on their PCs. Created low resolution video clips will be concurrently available and stored in high resolution quality. The X-TS module delivers additionally Unicast MPTS or SPTS streams for IPTV applications.
Multiple Input Devices
The standard input signals of XENTAURIX systems are M/SPTS IP streams (UDP/TCP/RTP). In addition, the system can process DVB-S/T/C and FM/AM/DAB radio through fully integrated receivers (with decryption) as well as SD/HD-SDI, ASI, analog video/audio and IP streams.
The X-MultiAudio module proceeds encoding, recording and streaming of additional audio channels within a video feed, depending on type of signal source.
