Drake The R.L. Drake model EH244 encoder host is a platform for supporting modular MPEG2 and MPEG4 H.264 video encoders, including the SDE24, HDE24, and SDI24. The encoder host multiplexes the encoder outputs into up to 4 QAM output channels, configurable via a front panel interface or Ethernet web server. The EH244 includes provisions for emergency alert services, using either video replacement or SCTE18 control messages and is fully compatible with Drake’s “Bandwidth Recovery Solution”.


  • Quad QAM Modulation
    The Drake DigitalTM EH244 Encoder Host can multiplex the encoded video streams and output them on any one of the 4 QAM outputs allowing for optimization of both bit rate and bandwidth.

  • Scalable System
    Any combination of Drake SDE24, HDE24 or SDI24 SD and HD encoder modules can be housed in the EH244 providing maximum flexibility. SD modules may be replaced by HD modules making future HD upgrades affordable.

  • Remote Management
    An Ethernet port provides local or remote access to all settings and can be used to monitor basic system function.
