VS-R264 and VS-R265 are AV-over-IP streaming encoders/decoders which offer simultaneous encoding, streaming, recording and decoding of audio/video material in 4K/UHD or Full HD resolution using the H.265/HEVC or H.264 video codecs. They can be used for transmissions over corporate networks and WANs or for live streaming into the internet plus automatic FTP upload of recorded files to network storage. Utilising open streaming formats and protocols, both models support Content Delivery Networks and online live platforms like YouTube, Wowza, Ustream, AWS Elemental MediaLive, CloudFront and others.


With power over Ethernet or external 12 Volt supply, HDMI in/out with audio embedding and de-embedding, and full control from a RESTful API allowing for integration into automation and control systems, these units are extremely versatile. Whereas many other products either lack professional audio levels or connectors, don’t record at all, or can’t simultaneously encode and decode, Tascam VS-R264 and VS-R265 sport fully balanced audio I/O via Euroblock connectors, with configurable reference levels for compatibility with professional audio systems. Unbalanced 3.5-mm stereo mini jacks are also provided for compatibility with consumer devices.

The bi-directional AV operation, live online streaming, secure capture to SD media then later upload for the web site, is ideal for live events, lectures, government sessions, boardroom presentations, concert venues and houses of worship, also for connections between rooms or locations. With a compact 1U, half-rack size, two units can be rack-mounted side by side. They can also be easily placed on a table or screwed under a shelf with the included mounting bracket.
