Ferncast announced the launch of its 2 RU codec device fernStation in Europe


The fernStation is an extremely powerful and silent 2 RU codec device powered by aixtream, which supports a truly massive number of channels. It has more than enough power to run many dozens of streams of even resource-intensive codec algorithms at once, while distributing the streams to the CDN as an OTT streamer or creating recordings of the streamed audio.

The fernStation is cooled entirely passively via heat pipes, it is furthermore designed for easy implementation into racks with its handles and front-facing USB slots.

The fernStation is a veritable toolbox and highly customizable. No matter whether you want to handle multiple SIP transmissions, set up an OTT streaming platform or perform DVB encoding and transcoding, no matter the protocols or algorithms required, no matter the number of channels needed, the fernStation can do it all. The hardware can also be customized to answer specific needs, like adding additional interfaces or redundancies.
