DVEO's Packet Recovery Enabled Encoder and Decoder Shortlisted for SCTE Technological Innovation Awards

DOZER™ Enabled Systems Reliably Deliver Error-Free Video Over Very Long Distances

San Diego, California - DVEO®, a well respected supplier to leading telco TV/OTT and cable operators around the world, announced today that their two channel encoder/decoder pair with "DOZER™" UDP packet recovery protocol extension has been shortlisted for the SCTE 2017 Technological Innovation Awards, in the "Best Digital Processing Solution" category. The winners will be announced at the SCTE's Annual Dinner on June 17, 2017 at the prestigious venue of Drapers' Hall in London, UK.

The DOZER Link™ HD IP H.264 2ch, previously known as the ARQ Link™, combines H.264 encoding, decoding, and IP networking with DVEO's patented DOZER ARQ (Automatic Repeat Request) automated packet recovery protocol, ensuring packet loss free real-time video delivery over IP networks including wireless and the Internet. H.265 is offered as an option. The systems are designed for Telcos and multi-screen operators that deploy IPTV and OTT.

"We are proud to be a finalist for the SCTE 2017 Technological Innovation Awards," stated Laszlo Zoltan, Vice President of DVEO. "The DOZER Link HD IP H.264 2ch is ideal for reliably delivering error-free video over very long distances. It corrects for packet loss, fixes jitter, and encrypts your traffic with AES 128. DVEO has edge case customers in the U.S. who use DOZER technology to stream video content live from countries such as Bangladesh and Greece with no packet loss or video freezes."

Designed for telcos and multi-screen operators that deploy IPTV and OTT, the DOZER Link encoder features one or two HD-SDI or SDI inputs and IP output. It creates multiple simultaneous high, medium, and low bitrate IP streams and sends them to content delivery networks (CDNs) and remote video capture devices. The matching decoder supports UDP input and converts the compressed digital video and audio into HD-SDI or SDI. Encoding/decoding latency is 1.5 seconds. The remotely manageable Linux® based systems support resolutions up to 1080p60/59.94, and are also available with optional HDMI or ASI inputs and outputs.

For increased reliability, the DOZER Link systems feature high availability (redundancy) features including redundant input and output ports and dual power supplies. The systems are also available in two to sixteen channel versions, or in miniaturized single channel units.
