Ikusnet ENG is a multi-purpose HD/SD Mpeg4 AVC/H.264 bidirectional portable IP video and audio codec that can broadcast live from anywhere, at anytime, supporting ad-hoc bandwidth aggregation of up to 10 links (3G/4G/Dual-Ethernet/Wi-Fi) with a statistical real-time load-balancing algorithm that assures best possible network utilization, reducing jitter and packet losses.

Ikusnet ENG is the only portable video codec in the market supporting bidirectional live video and audio/talkback streams all in one compact unit, with 2 switchable video inputs (2 cameras-SDI/Composite) and 2 monitor screens to monitor video inputs, feedback and locally encoded video.

Ikusnet ENG is able to compress and stream video and audio over satellite (ASI interface) as well as any standard IP network including 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi, Wimax, BGAN & Ethernet. Prodys esperience gives Ikusnet the best quality/compression ratio and make Ikusnet the best video codec solution for both narrow and wide bandwidth data links.

Ikusnet ENG provides the most robust streaming technology by offering the widest range of tools to cope with network limitations and impairments: Automatic Bit Rate Adaption, FEC protection, Error Concealment, and Active Packet Recovery will both protect data against packet losses and reduce the impact of network limitations.
