The NGS-D320 Lite is a versatile and powerful networked H.264 encoder and decoder. Its elegant design, small form factor and silent operation allows the device to be used in any situation, both in office environments and in 24/7 mission critical applications.

Due to its versatility, the NGS-D320 Lite can be configured at runtime as an encoder or a decoder, both for DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort content, with or without audio. The combination of these functions, with integrated keyboard and mouse control in a single unit, is ideal to create a seamless environment for application sharing, simulation and training.

Key features:

  • Superb Visual Experience
    The NGS-D320 Lite comes with Barco’s latest image processing engine, which provides the best scaling and color space conversion algorithms on the market today. When distributing graphics, the encoder preserves even the smallest details, making it suitable to encode images like spreadsheets or single pixel line diagrams.
  • Simple Integration
    The device automatically starts streaming whenever a valid input signal is connected. The stream is automatically set up using the most optimal settings based on input resolution and bandwidth. In addition, the discovery page of the web interface gives an overview of all available devices in the network, making system configuration easy. 
  • No Adjustment Needed
    With automatic EDID management and scaling at the decoding side, the best experience in distributing graphics and video over IP is guaranteed. Fiddling with displays to get a good picture is thus unnecessary. Switching from one source to another is fluent and does not require the display to re-sync to the new signal. The decoder can also both upscale and downscale to match the preferred display settings.
  • Performance
    The NGS-D320 Lite comes with a dual link DVI, an HDMI 1.4 and a DisplayPort 1.1a input. All inputs support resolutions up to 4096 x 2160 (DCI) and feature active pass-through connectivity. Encoding in full frame rate or lower frame rates are possible, allowing you to define the quality/bandwidth balance. The encoder latency is below 40ms, allowing an end to end latency of below 100ms.
