The OSCAR is the first H.264 encoder appliance designed by HaiVision
specifically for QuickTime environments. It natively supports
the RTSP streaming media protocol. The OSCAR can stream directly to
QuickTime supporting up to full D1 resolution (full standard
definition resolution or 720 x 480 NTSC / 576 PAL) at video bit rates up
to 1.5 Mbps. The OSCAR supports either multicast or unicast
RTSP sessions. With either, up to 10 separate destination streams can be
generated by a single OSCAR encoder (more at lower bit
rates). So, on a college campus for example, this simple, compact,
rugged appliance can be placed virtually anywhere and with a
simple network connection can stream video to any QuickTime client on
the local network or over the WAN. If more than 10
QuickTime clients need to view or access the video, the OSCAR can be
directed to a QuickTime Streaming Server which can typically
host well over 1000 clients
