Ikusnet2 ST is a rack mounting unit that encodes and decodes H.265/H.264 video. It supports a separate bidirectional audio stream as a coordination/talkback channel to send and receive voice instructions to and from the field unit, at the same time it is able to send and receive the main video and audio program feed.

Ikusnet2 ST supports file recording on an optional internal hard disk or an external storage device (USB). Files can be moved between two Ikusnet2 codecs or can be uploaded to an FTP server. When sending files to Ikusnet2 ST, the portable unit implements bandwidth aggregation using all of the available IP links on the unit to make file transfer much faster and reliable.

Ikusnet2 ST has been designed to be as easy to use as possible and can be operated either from a detachable touch panel menu or built-in web interface. Comprehensive definable presets allow the unit to be setup in advance, so that non-technical users can accomplish live broadcasts quickly and easily.
