Deployment Options

  • Mount in a standard 19" A/V rack
  • Set on a tabletop or shelf

The allowable operating temperature of the Echo360 PRO device is between 0° – 50° C (32° – 122° F). Be sure to install the device in a location where the temperature around the unit does not exceed this limit. If operated in an environment where temperatures exceed this limit, the unit may overheat and malfunction permanently.


  • Capture full-motion output from any of the following types of device connections, including document cameras, electronic whiteboards, and computers
    • Composite
    • VGA
    • HDMI
    • 3G-SDI
  • Full-motion encoding records applications, annotations, embedded video, and animations.
  • Capture input resolutions from 640×480 to 1920×1200.
  • Provides H.264-encoded output with configurable frame rates including 12.5/14.985fps or 25/29.97fps at bitrates from 120kbps to 15Mbps.
  • All input aspect ratios supported.

Appliance Display Resolutions

You can download the Pro_Appliance_Display_Resolutions.xlsx spreadsheet (86 KB) with all of the specific resolutions.

  • DMT: Display Monitor Timing lists standard display timings for various resolutions and screen sizes.
  • GTF: Generalized Timing Formula is a video timings standard.
  • CVT: Coordinated Video Timings (CVT) is a replacement for GTF.
  • CVTRB: Video Timings-Reduced Blanking is a VESA standard which offers reduced horizontal and vertical blanking for non-CRT based displays.


  • Fullscreen (4:3) standard definition input resolutions from QCIF to D1.
  • Widescreen (16:9) high definition input resolutions from 480p to HD-1080p.
  • Provides H.264-encoded output with configurable frame rates including 12.5/14.985fps or 25/29.97fps at bitrates from 120kbps to 3.2Mbps.


  • Audio encoding in stereo, mixed-mono or mono.
  • Audio capture in AAC, sampled at 22.05kHz or 44.1kHz, encoded at bitrates from 32kbps to 128kbps CBR.
  • Options for pro-level (+4dBu/1.228Vrms/1.737Vpk) or consumer-level (-10dBv/0.316Vrms/0.447Vpk) signals.
  • Professional line-level audio input with bare wire termination for direct wiring of stereo balanced (non-powered) or unbalanced audio.
  • Consumer line-level audio input with a stereo RCA connector.

NOTES about HDMI Audio

  • HDMI audio can only be utilized when also capturing HDMI video. For example, if you have an HDMI input and a VGA input connected on Channel 1, you could not use VGA for video and HDMI for audio.
  • All selected audio inputs are mixed. Meaning if HDMI audio is enabled for either/both video channels, the sound feed from HDMI input(s) will be combined and synced with the Audio channel feed (Balanced or Unbalanced). To use ONLY the HDMI audio, select None or Mute for the Audio channel input (depending on where the configuration is being done - the Echo360 UI or the front panel of the PRO.
  • We currently support two-channel PCM encoded audio over HDMI, however, high data rate encoded audio (like Dolby 5.1) is not supported.

Package Options

These packaging options produce viewable media for students:

  • Podcast. MP3 audio
  • Vodcast. M4V audio and motion display
