HD View

Point-to-Point Decoder/Receiver Software for Soliton Encoders/Transmitters

HD View is Soliton's proprietary decoding software that is installed on the receiver PC. The software receives H.265 video streams with a point-to- point connection, and is available as a 1-channel or 4-channel version. The received video can be output as SDI / HDMI from a compatible video output device.
HD View is capable of transcoding or passthrough of H.265 HEVC streams to an IP Video Stream (RTSP/ RTMP/ NDI). The streams can also be pushed to a CDN, VMS, or directly to social media.
HD View can be installed on any Win 7 or Win 10 platform with a minimum of 8GB RAM. A Blackmagic card should be installed on the workstation if HD-SDI output is desired.
