European debut for MediaKind’s Aquila Broadcast
MediaKind will shortly give a European debut to its next-generation broadcast solution, Aquila Broadcast.
Designed to help broadcasters transition from appliance-based platforms to all-IP media delivery, Aquila Broadcast is powered by software-based video compression, control and stream processing and enables resolutions up to UHD with HDR support, as well as offering wide codec support and bandwidth savings.
Aquila Broadcast has been designed to ensure compatibility with all-IP technologies and standards, as well as increased transponder density, while also retaining video quality. The solution is deployable as an appliance or software-only, either on-premise or in the cloud. It supports the MPEG-2, MPEG-4, AVC and HEVC video codecs.
Stuart Boorn, VP, product management, MediaKind, said: “With Aquila Broadcast, we are combining market-leading picture quality and efficiency with operational simplicity and flexible deployment, enabling our customers to make the transition from appliance-based broadcasting to the cloud while also considering the speed and time that best suits their business needs.”
