Osprey video technology sets the industry standard for high-quality, rock-solid streaming performance. Utilised in a wide variety of applications – from aerospace to surveillance, Internet TV to web casting – Osprey cards drive the delivery of video to viewers all around the globe. The Osprey 260e continues that strong tradition of high-value streaming performance.

The 260e is optimised for live streaming so you can take advantage of advanced video pre-processing features such as logo/bitmap overlay with transparency and positioning controls, de-interlacing, colour space conversion and closed-caption extraction and rendering. The Osprey 260e automatically detects and adapts on-the-fly when the input video format changes from movie frame rates to television frame rates. We’ve also added a broadcaster-requested feature – loss of video detection – which automatically substitutes internally generated NTSC colour bars (or other test display) with an optional customised text overlay.

Like all Osprey cards, the Osprey 260e supports global analog standard-definition (SD) formats, including NTSC and PAL. If you are a global OEM integrator seeking a single-solution deployment strategy, this card’s for you.

You can deliver multiple streams from a single channel in Adobe® Flash®, Microsoft® Windows (SilverlightTM), 3GPP or H.264 formats all at the same time. The Osprey 260e is the ideal solution to meet the demands of today’s multi-platform digital media marketplace.
