I am currently looking for encoder boxes for stationary and mobile use.
Stationary use means a fixed setup with several cams and a digital mixer. The box should be able to ingest HD/SD-SDI then.
For the mobile use the box should be able to be mounted to a cam and taking a HDMI signal should be enough.
Apart from the usual codec, resolution and bitrate settings the boxes should at least be able to configure what to do when the internet connection is bad: degrade quality or drop frames. And it should have some logging output to see what is going on.
Any experiences, recommendation from you out there in the field?
