Talon G2 encoder

One of the big products Osprey will have on display is its Talon G2 encoder and decoder units. The Talon G2 encoder ingests video from multiple formats, encodes it to H.264 and delivers it over IP. The Talon G2 features a front-facing LCD touchscreen, which offers one-touch streaming control and displays continuous feedback on the status of all encoders. The Talon G2 decoder, meanwhile, includes features such as multiple picture-in-picture options, SDI and HDMI outputs, touch display for configuration and closed-caption support.

Osprey will also feature its USB capture devices that can connect directly to a user’s computer via USB 3.0 to capture video from either 3G-SDI or HDMI inputs. Both versions offer hardware scaling, status display and a push-button user interface, and are compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems.

The newly launched 900 series capture cards from Osprey will also be on display with new features that include bidirectional ports and support for 4K, UHD, 12G, HDMI 2.0, IP and quad-channel HDMI up to 4K.

In addition, Osprey plans to show its Osprey Video SDI multiviewer converter product, which has four 3G-SDI inputs, two 3G-SDI outputs and one HDMI output. The multiviewer is capable of up/downscaling, frame-rate conversion, color-space conversion and deinterlacing, and its information overlays depict resolution, frame rate, channel identification and audio meters.

Osprey will feature all of these products at its booth, 521, during the 2017 GV Expo.
