REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Sept. 10 /-- Ipera Technology announced today that the latest additions to the company's Pixel Xtream enterprise-level transcoding and encoding product line for broadcast and web video professionals are now available. The Pixel Xtream(TM) L2200 rack mount and L2200P portable steaming media appliances add live video ingest and streaming output capabilities to the company's high performance Pixel Xtream transcoder, bringing Ipera's always-on intelligent enhancement mode with its superior video quality and low-touch operation to live HD & SD video steaming for the first time.
