Digital Rapids previews hybrid live encoder for multi-screen delivery at IBC

MUMBAI: Digital Rapids is providing a preview of its upcoming,carrier-grade StreamZ Live Broadcast hybrid encoder as part of the company‘s range of live encoding solutions being showcased at the IBC 2011 exhibition in Amsterdam.

StreamZ Live Broadcast combines the quality and flexible, multi-screen output capabilities of Digital Rapids‘ StreamZ Live encoder family with robust features for the unique demands of broadcast, cable, telco and satellite television operations.

StreamZ Live Broadcast features simultaneous encoding for ‘traditional‘ television and ‘any-screen‘ streaming delivery to a broad range of devices -- including mobile phones, tablets, PCs, IPTV set-top boxes, game consoles and more -- in a single 1RU encoder.

StreamZ Live Broadcast provides H.264 or MPEG-2 encoding for broadcast distribution while concurrently outputting standard or adaptive bit rate (ABR) streaming formats. StreamZ Live Broadcast features the same rich adaptive streaming support as the proven, award-winning ABR models in the StreamZ Live family, including the latest adaptive bit rate technologies from Adobe(r), Apple(r) and Microsoft(r).

StreamZ Live Broadcast is also easily extensible to support new streaming formats and technologies as they emerge. In addition to live transmission, StreamZ Live Broadcast can simultaneously archive its outputs to files for subsequent on-demand distribution, providing a streamlined path to additional revenue opportunities.

StreamZ Live Broadcast can encode from uncompressed baseband inputs or transcode from compressed live sources. Input options will include SDI (3G/HD/SD), IP and ASI signals, with IP and ASI output configurations. Redundant inputs, outputs and power supplies ensure high reliability. It can be managed and controlled through an intuitive web interface, local front-panel controls or through the scalable Digital Rapids Broadcast Manager multi-encoder management software for multi-channel automation, scheduling, monitoring and failover. SNMP management support enables seamless integration into existing television operations.

Digital Rapids senior product manager, Broadcast and Live Tony Huang said, "Multi-screen initiatives have become an integral part of television and content providers? business models, and their technical operations are converging as a reflection of that. The StreamZ Live Broadcast hybrid encoder provides a unified, flexible encoding platform to support this convergence while minimizing workflow complexity and reducing operational costs."
