IP video encoder HDMI

Model number: ME-LEBEXP2

SKU 4562393840794 Category

Encode the input video image to H.264 format in real time. An encoder that can stream to a network. It functions as a stream server by itself, and you can easily build a live distribution system by combining it with a client terminal such as MEDIAEDGE Decoder . It is also possible to operate as part of a video distribution system by linking with the MEDIAEDGE server (MEDIAEDGE-SVS4).

H.264 high-definition video distribution

Video input via the HDMI terminal or composite can be encoded in real time to the H.264 format and streamed.

Supports low latency mode

In low latency mode, the delay time between LEB Express2 and MEDIAEDGE Decoder is approximately 0.5 seconds.
Low-latency mode and normal mode can be switched using the Web Console settings.
In low-delay mode, there are restrictions on operation, such as only MPEG-1 Audio Layer2 for audio and only MEDIAEDGE Decoder for compatible devices .

IPv4 and IPv6 addresses

Supports IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.

FEC function

With the FEC (Forward Error Correction) function, it is possible to correct errors when data is missing or incorrect during distribution.

Web server function

Uses HTML menus to provide content menus for each terminal.
By combining with MEDIAEDGE Decoder , etc., you can build a live distribution system without using MEDIAEDGE-SVS4. In addition, it is possible to perform device settings, status monitoring, and firmware updates from a web browser.

Remote serial function

In combination with MEDIAEDGE Decoder , etc., the signal input to the serial port of the terminal can be output from the serial port via the network, and the signal input from the serial port can be output from the serial port of the terminal such as MEDIAEDGE Decoder .


Supports WOL (Wake On LAN). It is possible to start the device from the standby state via the network.


It comes with an SDK for developing software that can configure and search for devices, capture video and still images, and so on. *Playback terminal software ” MEDIAEDGESWT4 ” is required to
capture videos and still images . *Please use low-delay encoding with “disabled”.


It comes with a convenient tool software that detects MEDIAEDGE products using UPnP. Using this tool makes it easy to find network-connected MEDIAEDGE devices without specifying their IP addresses, so you can easily set up devices even if you do not know their IP addresses.
