NVE-2000 Specifications

Audio and Video Inputs

HD-SDI inputs receive HD or SD camera video, with embedded audio. Audio and video are synchronized throughout their respective processing paths to preserve audio-video synchronization in the output programs.

Video Timecode Alignment

Embedded SMPTE time codes received from the camera feeds are preserved throughout the NVE-200 processing enabling their use in the non-linear editing system. If they are missing from the video feed, time codes are inserted based on the arrival time at the NVE-2000 input.

Video Format Conversion

The NVE-2000 accepts digital video from cameras in a variety of formats, up to 1080i at 30 frames (60 fields) per second, 1080p30 or 720p60. The NVE-2000 converts the format of the video received from each camera into other formats as directed by user controls to provide specific video format at the streaming output or for remote monitor IP streams.

Video Encoder

The NVE-2000 encodes the video to MPEG-2 using a variable bit rate encoder that facilitates non-linear editing. The encoded video clips are compatible with commonly used codecs, such as XDCAM. Support for additional video codecs is available upon request.

Audio Encoder

The NVE-2000 encodes up to 8 stereo audio programs to Dolby Digital at user-selectable bit rates. Both linear PCM audio and encoded audio are available for output to a remote monitor and the network storage server.

Video Clip Manager

The NVE-2000 assembles the audio and encoded video streams into video clips, which are stored in its Video Clip Buffer and exported to the network storage server. The Video Clip Buffer stores clips on a first-in, first-out basis. Clips that are lost, mis-placed or accidentally deleted from the network storage server may be recovered from the NVE-2000’s Video Clip Buffer for at least two hours after they were originally exported to the network storage server.

Remote IP Video Monitor

The NVE-2000 generates a UDP or RTP MPEG-2 transport stream containing one of the encoded video feeds, which may be monitored remotely.

Video Clip Tagging and Annotation

The NVE-2000 provides the ability to tag video clips with metadata that may be used to identify clips with high value content or to annotate specific events during production, reducing the time required to review clips during the editing process. Metadata tagging and annotations may be performed using simple contact closures or network enabled smart phone applications.
