Transcoder/Scaler/Streamer delivers multiformat support.

Press Release Summary:




MPEG Gearbox RF/IP receives satellite and terrestrial RF signals, transcodes them to MPEG-2 or H.264, and streams them to any number of IP devices. Real-time, multichannel solution can transcode 4-6 HD (720p) streams, up to 3 HD (1080i) streams, or 10-15 SD streams from MPEG-2 to H.264 (CPU dependent) or vice-versa. Respectively, streams are transcoded into H.264 and MPEG-2 formats at max bitrates to 12 and 15 Mbps per stream. MPEG-2 and H.264 streams may also be mixed and matched.



Original Press Release:



DVEO to Feature New Multiformat, Multichannel MPEG-2 to H.264 Transcoder/Scaler/Streamer at NAB Show, Booth SU6911



San Diego, California -- DVEO, the broadcast division of Computer Modules, Inc. (CMI), will demonstrate their real time multichannel integrated RF receiver and transcoder at the NAB Show, April 11-14 in Las Vegas, Nevada, in booth SU6911.

Now shipping, the versatile MPEG Gearbox RF/IP is the latest addition to DVEO's product line of broadcast quality, standard or high definition (up to 1080i) streamers, MPEG-2 to H.264 transcoders, or MPEG-2/4 to MPEG-2/4 scalers. The system receives satellite and terrestrial RF signals, transcodes them to MPEG-2 or H.264, and streams them to any number of IP devices. Resulting streams can be viewed with standard IP capable set-top boxes, streaming video, TV's, smart phones, or software clients such as VLC or MPlayer.

The system transcodes four to six 720p HD streams, up to three 1080i HD streams, or 10 to 15 SD streams from MPEG-2 to H.264 (CPU dependent), or vice-versa. It transcodes streams into H.264 format up to a maximum bitrate of 12 Mbps per stream, and MPEG-2 streams up to a maximum of 15 Mbps per stream. It can also mix and match MPEG-2 and H.264 streams.

The MPEG Gearbox RF/IP can also output to ASI and IP at the same time. The input can be simultaneous choices from 8VSB, DVB-S/S2, DVB-T, DVB-ASI, or GigE. For example, a broadband network operator can receive multiple streams from DVB-S, 8VSB, and DVB-ASI inputs, transcode them to H. 264, and output them to multiple IP and ASI channels, all at the same time.
