The PEC 1864 is a versatile, self-contained, compact SDI/HDMI to H.264 streamer and recorder. Applications include live event streaming, webcasts, corporate or enterprise streaming, presentation and conferencing, educational lecture or medical procedure webcasting, AV system monitoring or presentation, house of worship proceedings streaming, remote monitoring of CCTV or industrial/energy/nuclear/petrochemical industry processes. The module can be configured to stream, record or both simultaneously.

The streamer and recorder have independent encoders allowing for separate configuration of streaming and recording. Recordings can be made on a MicroSD card (not supplied) fitted in the integral socket, or to an external memory or device connected to the Mini-USB port. Each encoder includes an up/down/ cross converter, region-of-interest scaler and a static text-overlay feature.

Two channels of audio may be de-embedded from the video input, or external, line-level, unbalanced audio may be inserted via a 3.5mm socket. Either can be used for the streamer and/or recorder. De-embedded audio is presented via another 3.5mm socket as line-level, unbalanced stereo.

Users can insert a static logo into the video signal stream; the logo can be freely positioned. As a placeholder when not live-streaming content, or as a fall back or warning, a custom image can be pre-loaded and automatically streamed/recorded if the SDI or HDMI input is missing.

The PEC 1864 supports a wide range of streaming standards as well as unicast and multicast operations including streaming live to a content-delivery network using RTMP, viewing the stream on one or more computers using RTP/ RTSP unicast or multicast, or streaming to a dedicated decoder or multicast address using TS over UDP or RTP.

An inbuilt, mobile-device friendly, Web user interface allows for simple configuration from a PC, Mac, tablet or smartphone. (Note: LYNX yelloGUI is not required.)

Supplied with a universal, plug-top, power supply, it may also be mounted in the optional LYNX rack-mounting frame for up to 14 yellobrik modules offering the option of dual (redundant) power supply.

Firmware updates are always provided free of charge by Lynx Technik and can be downloaded from or by connecting the registered yellowbrik to a web-connected PC or MAC and following the update instructions.
