AVIWEST, a leading provider of live video contribution and primary distribution systems over bonded cellular and unmanaged IP networks, is exhibiting at the 2017 NAB Show in Las Vegas to showcase the latest developments in its Digital Mobile News Gathering (DMNG) ecosystem.
Key Product Updates
State-of-the-Art 4K and Multi HD Video Encoding and Distribution
A key highlight at the 2017 NAB Show will be the transition to the HEVC video compression standard. AVIWEST’s live IP video solutions support HEVC, allowing broadcasters to deliver superior video quality at lower bit rates.
AVIWEST’s HE4000 4K Ultra HD HEVC live encoder is ideal for real-time delivery of live UHD or HD content over unmanaged IP networks. The compact, half 1-RU encoder combines 10-bit and 422 HEVC encoding with the latest generation of SafeStreams® technology for delivery of live video content over IP at low latencies and bitrates.
Thanks to AVIWEST’s SafeStreams technology, which combines intelligent H-ARQ algorithms with IP bonding mechanisms, the HE4000 ensures the delivery of live video even during unpredictable and unmanaged network conditions, enabling broadcasters to provide seamless news and sports coverage from any location around the world. By combining HEVC encoding and AVIWEST’s SafeStreams technology, the HE4000 dramatically reduces bandwidth costs while guaranteeing superior video quality.
The HE4000 will be demonstrated with a new version of the DMNG StreamHub transceiver and decoder platform offering integrated 4K UHD HEVC recording and decoding functions.
Advanced Cloud-Based Live Video Contribution
AVIWEST’s live IP contribution system is mainly composed of the DMNG StreamHub transceiver and the DMNG Manager management system. The system operates in virtualized mode to deliver all the economic benefits of the cloud without compromising the performance required by today’s media environments.
The extended capabilities of AVIWEST’s cloud solution will be showcased at the 2017 NAB Show. By supporting both point-to-point and point-to-multipoint distribution scenarios, the platform offers broadcasters the flexibility they need to stream live video content to any CDN and streaming platform such as Facebook Live or YouTube. Multiple input and output streaming protocols (e.g., RTMP, RTSP/RTP, HLS, TS/IP, AVIWEST SafeStreams) are supported by the platform, enabling broadcasters to receive concurrent incoming streams from remote AVIWEST DMNG transmitters and encoders, MacBook and smartphone applications, or third-party systems such as IP cameras.
Designed to fit customers’ unique needs and headend constraints, the DMNG StreamHub application can be also hosted on a 1RU or 2RU server platform with various software configurations.
