RACK Series | Premium HEVC Video Contribution Encoder

AVIWEST & Haivision

The RACK Series video encoder is designed for space-constrained live production, including contribution applications and multi-camera remote/at-home productions.


The award-winning RACK Series is designed to be deployed in fixed locations, directly connected on wired IP networks, offering a real cost-effective alternative to satellite or fiber. The RACK Series is also designed to be used on vans or trucks, connected to a roof-mounted AVIWEST QUAD CellLink (active 3G/4G multi-antennas) and/or Ka satellite transmitter, enabling video broadcast from any location around the world, even in the midst of unpredictable and unmanaged network conditions.

Equipped with a user-friendly, intuitive touchscreen, the unit supports multiple operational modes including live, record, live and record, file forward, and data hot spot for high-speed internet connectivity.

With its 1U half rack form factor, the product reduces costs and space requirements. Delivered in a “as-a-box” design, it can also be rack mounted thanks to dedicated kits hosting one or two units in 1U.

Product Specs

The RACK Series embeds a best-in-class full HD hardware H.265/HEVC encoder, as well as an H.264/AVC encoder to reach low bitrates at sub-second latency without comprising on video quality.

Powered by the double award-winning SST technology (Safe Streams Transport), the RACK encoder offers ultra-reliable transmission on any network, thanks to an intelligent IP-bonding stack that aggregates all available bandwidth without needing to stop a live transmission, even as connections are added or dropped.
