Michael Sandorse, the President/Director of Engineering for Remote Facilities
Consulting Services, was looking for an encoder that was MPEG 4 capable and reliable to the
Nth degree and readily shelf available. Michael heard about Adtec through a colleague that used their products for a company called MASN a few years back. When asked why he chose Adtec Digital, Michael said, “I looked at other companies like Tandberg TV, Tiernan (Comtec TV) and Harris, but I chose Adtec Digital because Kevin Ancelin (President of Adtec Digital) called me back on a Saturday night. Kevin either calls me or emails me at anytime and the tech support is always amazing and that’s worth its weight in gold!”

With the Soloist–HD Pro, Multi-CODEC decoding has never been easier or more reliable. For live events it can decode from ASI or GIGE to the HD-SDI interface.
