DVEO delivers latest adaptive bitrate streaming transcoder/streamer/receiver
DVEO, the broadcast division of Computer Modules, Inc. (CMI), will introduce the latest version of their real time adaptive bitrate streaming transcoder, streamer and integrated RF receiver at IBC stand 2.A48.
The multi-tasking MPEG Gearbox MF is an MPEG-2 to h.264, or h.264 to MPEG-2, transcoder or transcaler and the Intel 6 core processor based system features multi-protocol, multi-resolution, and multi-wrapper support including RTMP, RTSP, and HTTP5.
The system receives simultaneous satellite, IP, SDI, HD-SDI, and terrestrial RF signals, transcodes them to h.264, and streams them to any number of IP devices — including standard IP capable set-top boxes, streaming video, TV’s, smart phones, iPads, or software clients such as VLC or MPlayer.
The newest version of the MPEG Gearbox MF features a wide variety of IP output protocols. The MPEG Gearbox MF streams multiple channels using UDP, RTP, RTSP, HTTP, HTTP Live, HTTP Smooth, HTTP Dynamic, FTP, RTMP (Open Flash), or Windows Media Video 9 with HTTP/ASF.
DVEO has added SDI and HD-SDI output, plus five new input formats: SDI, HD-SDI, VC-1, QAM, and analog. Other new features include support for M3u8 playlist files, qHD and h.264up resolution, and high-quality Ogg Vorbis audio.
The MPEG Gearbox MF can also output to HD-SDI, SDI, IP, and/or ASI, at the same time. The inputs can be simultaneous choices from HD-SDI, SDI, DVB-S/S2, 8VSB, QAM, DVB-C, DVB-T, DVB-ASI, analogue, or GigE and IP (h.264, MPEG-2, or VC-1).
Typical dedicated transcodes are up to three 1080i HD streams, four to six 720p HD streams, or 10 to 15 SD streams from MPEG-2 to h.264 (CPU dependent), or vice-versa. The system can also mix and match MPEG-2 and h.264 streams.
A real time store and forward (time delay) option for up to 80 streams is available. The MPEG Gearbox MF features a web-based GUI with SNMP support. It is tested to work with Wowza, Adobe Flash and RealNetworks servers.
Supported resolutions include qHD, h.264 up, SQVGA, QCIF, QVGA, SIF, VGA, or any custom size up to 1080i. Audio support is AAC, Ogg Vorbis, or embedded passthrough.
